Subject: KC Games for Good Cancelled
Good morning. If you were at this morning’s meeting, you already know we have decided to cancel the 2018 Games for Good Event tomorrow, 10/6, due to the rain.
We do not make this decision lightly. We had a record number of teams and exhibitors, but feel that this is in the best interest of all participants. This is an outdoor event. Several of the competitions – the mechanical bull, the inflatable obstacle course, the wacky trike relay – will be seriously jeopardized by inclement weather. In addition, today’s rain will limit the ability to park on the lawn. Finally, the threat of additional rain tomorrow will likely limit attendance, and thus undermine our success.
We are grateful for all the support we have received from the club, both in terms of your willingness to volunteer and your contributions.
If you’ve made a contribution (or commitment), someone will contact you individually in the next few days to determine what you’d like for us to do. We can:
  1. refund the donation in full; or,
  2. hold your contribution as a donation to the 2019 event; or,
  3. combine your fee with other funds that have been contributed for the event beneficiaries and provide you appropriate notification of the donation.
Please mark your calendar for next year’s event: October 5, 2019 on the south lawn of the National WWI Museum & Memorial.
And again, thank you for your continued support.
