3rd Annual SSA Holiday Classic
presented by Starkville Radiology
(December 3-4, 2016)
December 2, 2016 - Holiday Classic has been canceled
After careful consideration and with much help from our local meteorologist, we unfortunately have made the decision to cancel the Holiday Classic tournament this weekend. This decision was not taken lightly and we are saddened that we cannot host the event. However, with the current forecast, our fields will likely be unplayable by early tomorrow afternoon. The forecast is calling for long periods of moderate to heavy rain beginning at noon on Saturday. Our utmost concern is the safety of the players and coaches on the fields and the unfavorable conditions in the forecast will not allow for safe play.
We are going to make every attempt to schedule a spring tournament and will send you an invitation as soon as we have ironed out the plans.
If you have already mailed your check, it has not been cashed. We will be mailing all those checks back to you.
We would like to invite you to attend our Frostbite Tournament on January 28-29, 2017. Registration is open and we would love to see you there! You can find information at the site below:
Again thank you for your interest in the Holiday Classic, we were looking forward to hosting you in Starkville.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we made this very difficult decision. We hope to see you on the fields soon.
