Regretfully, EDP is cancelling the Spring Classic tournament
at all venues. There will be no games this weekend.
Our crews had been working hard all week in an attempt to get the tournament off as scheduled. However, recent weather developments and worsening forecasts for the upcoming weekend proved too much to overcome.
At Tuckahoe Farms in Hammonton, the standing water and ice has not been draining as hoped due to ongoing frigid temperatures and frozen ground conditions.
We had planned to move the Joint Base / Fort Dix venue games to Cohansey and Pittsgrove fields, but those fields were hit with fresh snow overnight, preventing the necessary field preparation. Weekend forecasts have also been steadily deteriorating, making the necessary drying conditions unlikely.
Our facility hosts have withdrawn the use of their facilities, citing unplayable fields. EDP is committed to the safety of its players, and agreed with the mutual decisions reached all around.
EDP will post a 100% credit for each team’s entry fee for the Spring Classic, which can be used for any new applications to an outdoor EDP event over the next 12 months. Our posted online Application Info and our Regulations allow for the option of a 70% refund in the event of a cancellation, in lieu of the 100% credit. Any team opting for the 70% refund in lieu of the default 100% credit, please advise us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
