Disappointed


First off, I'd like to thank all of you for playing in our tournament. This is an annual fundraiser tournament where every single dime goes to American Cancer Society. The parks donate the fields, the umpires donate a games pay, and many local businesses donate raffle prizes to help us raise as much money as we can. Over the last 5 years, we have raised over $40,000. We are still tabulating the results from this year, and we'll post it on our website when it is available.
Unfortunately, the rain came and made us have to cancel this tournament after we got started. Several teams only got in 1 game before Mother Nature wiped us out. Due to logistics problems with the parks and field workers, and some teams inability to play, we were not able to continue play on Sunday. Many volunteers put in a lot of hours getting this tournament ready, and they too, are disappointed.
It has come to my attention that some teams feel like they should be given a refund due to the inability to continue the tournament. If you are wanting a partial refund of your entry fees for games not played, email me at riptidetournaments@gmail.com, and I will work with you and the Cancer Society to make arrangements for a refund.
Again, I am disappointed in our inability to complete the tournament, and we hope that you will come back again next year and continue raising money for a great cause.
