This letter is to inform all coaches, athletes and parents that The Elite HS Last Chance Showcase is canceled. David and Justin, co-meet directors, evaluated the entries against our contract with Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex and unfortunately the entries do not allow us to reasonably move forward. Last night and most of today was spent considering the options and what is best to do considering the circumstances. Canceling a meet was the last thing that we wanted to do considering our goal has been to create more opportunities for young athletes to compete.
We sincerely apologize for the lost opportunity and any inconvenience that accompanies it. We have invested a lot in this as well and it's disappointing to not be able to move forward. Additionally, we apologize for the lateness of the decision - again, we have been trying to figure out how to still have the meet despite the entries, fields and our large contract with Ocean Breeze. We will refund every entry fee paid through headcountreg. We have access to names and mailing addresses and will mail out a check within two weeks. If we can get the funds earlier then you will receive your refund earlier, some of that is determined by disbursement of funds from headcountreg.
T-shirts: You will be refunded if you purchased a t-shirt during registration.
For those interested in still competing there is a meet at the NYC armory on Friday: http://frny.org/racing/indoor-track-meet-2/
Please email us with any questions or concerns. We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.
Best wishes, Justin Wood Dave Alfano firstname.lastname@example.org
