Obviously everyone has seen the protests and unrest in Louisville on the news. We have had a lot of questions regarding the tournament due to these protests. Please be assured that these are happening downtown and in the Highlands/Bardstown Rd. area where the mayor lives. The tournament sites are in the East End and St. Matthews where there has been no activity regarding the protests. They are confined to certain areas. We will continue to monitor the situation and update everyone via the webpage.
