2020 IAMOA State Pool Tournament – Canceled

Why are we cancelling?
The Indiana State Health Department and the Governor’s office have imposed a restriction to not hold events over 250 people for the next 30 days. Over the past 24 hours, many events in Indianapolis have been cancelled and schools, churches, and countless public gatherings have been cancelled. We understand the feedback that this feels extreme, however, it is not for IAMOA to have an opinion on how this public health situation should be handled. In the interest of keeping our players, staff and state safe, we will abide by this restriction.

In a Single Room?
We understand the Governor’s statement says 250 people in a single room. Yes, we do have multiple rooms at the tournament, but with 1800 players we would certainly have more than 250 people in a room at a given time. Even so, the intent of the restriction is to keep large groups of people from congregating for non-essential events, which would include our pool tournament.

Will there be a refund?
Yes, 100%. IAMOA will process refunds to your league operator who will then provide you with a refund for your entry fee and green fees. This may take a couple of weeks and we will keep you posted when we have a better timeline. We are working hard to get the money back to you as soon as possible. 

What to do about hotel rooms?
If you booked a room at the group rate at the Wyndham, it will automatically be cancelled. If you booked a room at another hotel or outside of the group rate, you should call and cancel as soon as possible. 

Why cancelled and not postponed?
IAMOA is always committed to providing the best tournament experience possible for pool players. There is not hotel availability to postpone the tournament and provide the same experience our players expect.

Will games played in 2019 count for the 2021 tournament?
No. The qualifying period for the next pool tournament in 2021 will be January – December 2020.

What about VNEA Nationals in Vegas?
Still on. See statement posted by VNEA: http://www.vnea.com/Data/Sites/12/media/vnea-vegas-2020.pdf
