WUCC Update 2 - OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 2-1 (18:00hrs Sunday 3/8/14)
03 August 2014
Following careful discussions and inspections today regarding field conditions, player safety, weather considerations and the overall tournament, WFDF with agreement with the TOC would like to issue the following information: OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT 2-1 (18:00hrs Sunday 3/8/14).
WUCC UPDATE - Sunday games are postponed due to flooding
03 August 2014
With the additional rain Saturday morning, many of the fields at the main venue were still flooded as of Saturday evening. WFDF and the tournament organizers have decided that all games on Sunday are canceled. This decision was taken because, even if the standing water had receded by morning, if we had tried to play, the fields would have trashed for the rest of the week as they remained water-soaked. We plan to play as scheduled on Monday and will play the Sunday schedule on Tuesday. More info will be provided once it gets sorted out. Further information:
