We have decided NOT to attend the Harrisburg Summer Slam (Hershey) tournament the weekend of June 25-26. There were two fundamental reasons for this decision. First, the tournament director informed me that they were having a difficult time securing facilities given the state of the financial affairs of the schools that were used. And, second, given the uncertainty of the venues, the health of the tournament was in question. This was a difficult decision to make given our history with this tournament, and the planning that goes in to it by all of the families that attend. ALL THOSE THAT MADE HOTEL RESERVATIONS SHOULD CANCEL THEM ASAP.
ALL OF OUR TEAMS WILL STILL PLAY THIS SAME WEEKEND. We are currently waiting to hear back from several tournament directors. We will make a decision in the next 48 hours as to which tournament we will attend. The tournaments under consideration will likely require an overnight stay, but will be much closer than Hershey (under 2 1/2 hours). One of the tournaments under consideration is close to the Jersey Shore.
I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but it is beyond our control. I tried to hold out as long as I could in hopes that the issues with Hershey would get resolved. As of today, they did not, and we could not wait any longer. I will send out a text message as soon as the decision is made on the replacement.
