2020 August Military Team Classic Cancellation
From Brad Edelman, President, High Roller, Inc.; June 23, 2020 – I am extremely saddened and frustrated to announce that we are canceling the 2020 August Military Team Classic. As in major events across the country, health and financial concerns outweigh any reason to stage what would have been our 13th consecutive year.
This painful decision didn’t come without hours and hours and days and days of analyzing, investigating, and soul searching before coming to our very regrettable decision.
The decision was largely based on these criteria:
- Worse Case Scenario – Contestants coming from around the country visit many local attractions in Las Vegas. Upon returning to their homes, if anyone gets sick and tests positive for COVID-19, we run the risk of the Plaza being closed by local officials.
- South Point management doubts we will receive approval to use all available lanes.
- Hundreds of teams have already canceled. Many more are expected.
- Hundreds of individuals have canceled leaving those teams incomplete.
- Hundreds of other contestants are waiting to see what direction the future of the pandemic takes. Many contestants claim they won’t decide until the first week of August. Contestants, staff, venue, and sponsors need more notice about canceling.
- The negative prospect of the future of COVID-19 for Las Vegas and the country, as reported by health organizations nationwide.
- An increase of COVID-19 positive cases, as reported by many states, some new records.
- An increase in the number of states implementing enhanced face coverings regulations.
- Financial and unemployment statistics nationwide as many of our cancellations are due to financial reasons.
- An important personal factor is knowing that the tournament environment would not be as casual and friendly as we experience each year. We would be dealing with security guards constantly moving crowds, and long lines as social distancing will be enforced.
- Contestants will be shown where and when they can be present. Although Security would just be doing their job, that is not the environment we want for our event.
- Only contestants would be allowed in the Plaza, no spectators. The previous squad would have to vacate the Plaza.
Everyone has an opinion on these sensitive topics, but this is what has led us to the decision.
