(Note we have not cancelled an event in 9 years)

  1. The host will investigate the possibility of rescheduling the event.
    • Unfortunately, we expect it will be difficult to do this given the logistics, but we will check into this. It could take a few days to determine.
  2. If the event cannot be rescheduled:
    • For League Qualifiers, the same number of teams will advance to the state championship as planned. Two thirds of these teams will be selected according to their current ranking in the League.
