ACS FORCED TO CANCEL OMEGA BILLIARDS 2020 ACS NATIONALS !**

 
WEDNESDAY – APRIL 1 RELEASE:

ACS FORCED TO CANCEL OMEGA BILLIARDS 2020 ACS NATIONALS !**

 

The American CueSports Alliance (ACS) Board of Directors is a group of pool playing members, such as yourself, elected by the ACS membership. They are as involved and have the same concerns about the sport as their fellow members do. During these trying times within our sport, and North America in general, your Directors have the difficult task of balancing the best interests of its members who want to play pool, while keeping an informed perspective on their health and welfare amid the unpredictability of producing events over these next few months. With these concerns in mind, currently and in the coming months, the ACS Board regrets to announce that the ACS must cancel its Omega Billiards 2020 ACS National Championships scheduled for the Tropicana Las Vegas, May 9-16. While the Tropicana in Las Vegas may reopen by the dates needed to set-up and produce these Championships, we project the restrictions which casinos will be required to follow in May, and many weeks thereafter, will make the production of our gathering impossible.

For all members who made plans to attend (and we were projecting another record turnout!) and are staying at the host property and reserved under the ACS block using the ACS-specific passkey https://book.passkey.com/go/AmericanCueSports2020, the Tropicana will be automatically canceling your reservations and refunding any deposits made. Those who reserved their rooms at the Tropicana using others means such as player rewards, Hilton points, etc. should use their original email confirmation to request a refund from the Tropicana. In addition, the ACS administrative office will be refunding all entry fees to the original funding source, in full, minus any PayPal or credit card fees charged to the ACS. These refunds will be processed and remitted between mid-April and mid-May.

2019-20 league year ACS State Championship Teams that took advantage of the free entry perks for the 2020 Nationals will be honored for the 2021 ACS Nationals. State Championship Teams will be refunded their 2020 ACS Nationals fees and must resubmit entries in the same manner for the 2021 ACS Nationals. We request that all team members still qualify in ACS-sanctioned leagues during the 2020-21 ACS league year that begins June 1, 2020.

We can only hope that you can understand the difficult decision we made. Everyone – players, staff and Directors – looks forward to seeing old friends and enjoys the ambience, competition, entertainment and energy generated at the ACS Nationals every year…all of which will be sorely missed. We apologize for any inconvenience to our attendees. Airlines are being flexible with transfer, refund and voucher policies, and in some cases you might want to reschedule your flights for 2021, when we’ll reconvene in a big way at the ACME ACS Nationals, May 15-23, at the Tropicana Las Vegas!
