At what time could we expect a decision on whether or not Islip will be cancelled? Google is predicting 5-8 inches of snow in Islip tomorrow but it would be useful to know what the competition is officially deciding.

It appears that Islip is cancelled, can I have an official confirmation on this?

The email we were sent about the invitational being cancelled also said that excepting the amount that had been already spent on competition materials, etc, teams would receive a refund of their registration fees, as well as a copy of the tests.

Our deepest apologies that we had to cancel the tournament for this weekend. Our utmost concern was the safety of everyone getting to our site and then being able to get home on the roads.

With that being said, an email was just sent to the coaches for the attending teams. We are investigating the possibility of hosting next weekend. We didn't think that it would be possible, but with the generosity of our theater arts department, we should be able to host the event next weekend with schedule modifications. We are in the process of hashing out the details now, but we would need to determine which of the participating teams would be able to attend next week. We understand that it is short notice right before the holidays, and we don't know if teams have made commitments with other invitational competitions. But if we could get an estimate of how many teams may be able to attend, we may be able to make this work.

If Islip is being rescheduled to next week, would the event timing be the same? Also when would we be able to know? Thanks.

That was the original statement but then they changed it:

I hope they maintain the same schedule as originally planned. It wouldn’t make sense to rearrange all the event times in relation to one another, causing teams to scramble to fit people into new events they haven’t done before with less than a week’s notice. Hopefully everything will go as originally scheduled, the only difference being the date it’s all held!

As for the “schedule modifications” I’m hoping that only means times for registration, award ceremony, etc...

I could see them not changing the schedule but rather just reducing the number blocks that an event is run from 6 to 4 or 5 based on how many teams are still attending. So if you were in group F maybe they move you to group B now to make it easier for Event Supervisors. Your team would have the same conflicts except for signup events. But I bet if they lost that many teams there would be some open slots to move your signup events to.

I am currently investigating multiple options; however, the number of blocks of either would be reduced because of the predicted smaller number of teams. Once I have a better understanding of how many teams will be in attendance, I will release that information.
