Sk8Expo Attendees, Chapter Officers and Board of Directors,
As I know you all can imagine, an event of Sk8Expo’s magnitude takes a lot of time to plan and a significant a
mount of time to cancel. We have been in talks with the hotel for the last two days tracking the storm’s path and looking at options for moving/rescheduling should Irma continue on its course towards Florida. Sadly, Hurricane Irma continues to appear to be heading towards land. This is not the first time that the RSA has had to monitor a major storm/hurricane prior to Sk8Expo, but this is the fir
st time the weather event did not change course.
We are saddened to announce that the event will be cancelled due to force majeure. Any fees that were pre-authorized by the Margaritaville Resort will be refunded to you by the hotel. Additionally, most major airlines are cancelling flights and either refunding the amount paid or issuing vouchers. The RSA will be refunding any registration fees paid to us.
We are still working with the hotel about potentially rescheduling the event at a future date. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those in the path of such a catastrophic storm.
If you have any questions, please contact Jim McMahon, Executive Director, at 317-347-2626 Ext. 104 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
