The heavens have opened up and show no sign of stopping. Due to
weather, have cancelled the rest of the tournament. If you are able
to set up/resume a match with your current opponent you can email
me the result and I will report it as a "tournament" match. Please
be sure you keep the same format (8 game pro-set). Thank you all
very much for playing. We really appreciate you supporting our
events. Have a great rest of the summer. See you at the next one in
***:1:55 pm Sunday***
The rain has come back, and doesn't appear to be leaving anytime
soon...we are now in our second rain delay for the day. We are
planning to re-evaluate main draw matches around 3:00 pm. So as of
right now, any main draw matches starting between 2:00 and 3:00
will not start on time. Also, unfortunately due to this delay, we
have had to make the decision to cancel the consolation rounds for
both boys and girls. We apologize for any inconvenience and
appreciate everyone's patience. Thank you
What a difference a day makes. We have been working for about an
hour to get everything dry. We are planning on an on schedule
start. Look forward to a great day!!!!
***1:49 pm Saturday***
Thank you all for bearing with us today. All of tomorrow's main
draw match times have been posted. All rounds will be played in one
day with a shortened format. Each match will be an 8 game Pro Set,
regular scoring with Ads. Due to the shortened format, rest times
may not be a full hour. In order to complete every round of the
tournament in one day, we will use every available court at any
time, and due to this there may be some switching between surfaces.
We will do our best to minimize this as much as possible, but we do
want to ensure each draw gets through the finals.
Consolation will be a First Match Losers Consolation, instead of a
Feed-in through the Quarters. There will be only one consolation
round, to ensure each player is able to play 2 matches in the
tournament. It will not be played through a final. This will also
be an 8 game Pro Set, regular scoring NO Ads. We will not post the
Consolation match times to the web. Girls Consolation matches will
start at 2:45, Boys will start at 3:45, and we will get all matches
out as players check in.
***10:56 am Saturday***
We are having a tough time with mother nature today. As of right
now there is a lull in the rain, however, between now and 5pm
tonight there is between a 95% - 100% chance of rain. We are going
to suspend play for the rest of the day and start up early in the
morning. There will be NEW start times for tomorrows play. We will
have shortened main draw matches and shortened consolation format.
Also, there may be some changing between court surfaces as to get
the tournament in. Thanks for working with us as mother nature has
not. Start times will be posted later this afternoon.
