Dear Coaches and Managers,
It is with great regret that we announce that the 2013 Loudoun Soccer Columbus Day Invitational is cancelled. Northern Virginia received a significant and unexpected amount of rainfall this past week; given this fact and the forecasted rainfall over the weekend, the high-quality grass fields we secured were deemed unplayable. This is frustrating and disappointing for all of us - from the players, coaches and parents attending, to the on-site volunteers, to the referees assigned, and to the tournament committee who worked so hard to put this event together.
Partial refunds will be issued in the near future; we are still determining the amount and method that refunds will be issued, as well a discount/credit toward next year's event. Tournament t-shirts will be mailed to each team manager to distribute to their team, as each player was set to receive a Loudoun Soccer Columbus Day Invitational t-shirt. In addition, we have already begun the step of securing all-weather turf fields for next year's event to prevent this from occurring again.
We appreciate your patience as we resolve this issues. Thank you again for your team's registration, and for understanding the circumstances of this unfortunate situation.
2013 Columbus Day Invitational
