MANHATTAN INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT
Please share with your teams
Once again the Midwest weather continues to be unpredictable and challenging. As I’m sure you can appreciate we have dedicated a lot of time, resources and finances into preparing for the 2018 MANHATTAN INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT. The severer cold weather conditions predicted over the weekend has unfortunately forced us to cancel the event, the wind-chill on Saturday morning will be in the low teens!!
As an event organization, it is important for GSI Sports and PUMA KFC MHK to provide a top quality experience for all involved. The playing conditions along with the weather forecasted for the weekend would not be conducive to producing a positive experience for the players, families and the coaches. We also have to be concerned with the safety of our traveling teams from the surrounding states.
Our tournament refund policy calls for us to keep $150 of the registration fee in case of cancellation. We have, however, decided to only keep $75.00 of the entry fee to help cover some of the administrative fees. We will also give everyone a $150.00 discount to play the Nutmeg Tournament on May 4-6 next year’s MIT event! (Use MIT2018 to get the discount)
We will begin processing the refunds early next week. If you paid via credit card, we will refund the full amount online, and it will show as a refund from HTGSports within 2 or 3 days. Teams who paid via check will be refunded by GSI Sports. Checks will be sent to the team representative who completed the online registration process.
Finally, GCI Team Travel will cancel all rooms which was booked for this event, if your team booked hotel room on your own please contact them ASAP, some may have a 48 hour cancellation policy!
GSI and PUMA FC MHK appreciates your support and apologize for the cancellation but I’m sure you realize this is not something we want to do, but it is rather something that is out of our control. We hope to see you soon in an upcoming GSI event.
Enjoy your weekend and stay warm!
