Dear Coaches, Judges, and other members of the Odyssey Family,
As we mentioned yesterday we have been closely monitoring the situation in coordination with FCPS, public health officials and the state Odyssey of the Mind organization. We are all disappointed to announce that at this time we feel it necessary to cancel our tournament for Saturday, March 21st in the interest of public health. Unfortunately, as we do not have a timeline for the return to normal activities, we will be unable to reschedule at this time.
We will provide further information regarding any developments on Monday, March 16th. This situation has been fast moving, and we need some time to regroup and figure out what’s possible given how far we were in preparations for the event. We know that the kids (and you) have put an extraordinary amount of effort in, and we are sincerely disappointed that the tournament will not go on this year.
