After careful consideration, we have made the decision to CANCEL the 2020 Icebreaker tournament. With most clubs moving into the 2020-2021 cycle and COVID-19 restrictions in place from Local and State Government we are unable to host the event this year. We have provided an email update to all teams with additional information. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
If your team is holding hotel reservations, please be aware that hotel contracts have an Impossibility Clause to waive any penalty in the event of a cancellation due to a circumstance beyond the control of the event organizers, that makes it impossible for the tournament to operate. Halpern Travel has already contacted each hotel's Sales Department to invoke the Impossibility Clause and to cancel your reservation. You do not need to contact the hotel or Halpern Travel to cancel your reservation. However, if you would like to keep your reservation, please contact Halpern Travel immediately at 888.640.6400 or email@example.com.
