UPDATED Tournament Sign-up Info
Dear Iowa Region,
Thank you for your patience and understanding during a rough Saturday morning. Sorry if we did not respond to your phone messages, emails, and voice mails—all of the answers we have right now are addressed in this email, so please read it carefully and all the way through. We are attempting to send this to as many people affected as possible, but please make sure it is passed to anyone in your club who was involved in the tournament registration process.
As you know, on Dec. 7 the tournament registration process was complicated by server-wide issue on the side of My Online Camp. Their staff members were working that morning to get things fixed, but were not able to solve all the issues. As a result, the tournament entry process failed. It was slow, inconsistent, and not fair to all people attempting to enter tournaments.
The Iowa Region wants to make sure the process is fair to everyone. We realize that SOME of you did get into the tournaments you wanted, but at the same time MANY of you did not get into any tournaments. At this point, with no perfect solution, our best option is to cancel all online tournament entries made on Dec. 7 and start the registration process over again. Any manual entries made prior to Dec. 7 will remain. Our goals are to make sure everyone has a fair opportunity to enter tournaments, and that all of your money is accounted for.
We are still working out the exact details with My Online Camp of how the process will work. There are many technical details to work out to make sure it all runs smoothly, as we definitely do not want to repeat this process! We hope to have exact details and instructions early next week.
What should you do at this time?
- Understand that all online entries made on Dec. 7 have been cancelled, so any confirmations you received are null and void.
- Any money you have been charged will either be used for tournament entries again, or refunded to you.
- We will publish the NEW tournament sign-up dates ASAP.
- Look for exact details coming out early next week.
Tournament Directors, please do not move teams in your tournaments or move teams to the drop list at this point. We will send further instructions on what you need to do when we have the process finalized.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this situation.
