Flick 5 is canceled
It is with great regret that we announce that the remainder of the PSRA 2020 season, including the 5th Flick and City Championship, have been canceled due to the devastating outbreak of the Coronavirus.
We won’t use the trite phrase, “This was a hard decision,” because it was not. There is no choice here. This is a serious situation, and although we tried to be optimistic at first, each day brought another pronouncement of the virus’ destructive impact on our society, another extension of school closure in our region, another mandate to stay at home. It became clear that there was no way we could safely hold these regattas even if for some reason the state and local bans on group gatherings were lifted and even if our schools were opened and sports allowed to resume in the next couple of weeks. Currently, most of our member schools are closed through Easter, and we expect those closures to be extended. This is heartbreaking for all of us, most especially our seniors who also face losing their proms, graduation ceremonies and class trips. We will continue to be in contact with our members during these difficult times. Thank you for your support and consideration. Stay healthy and safe, and let’s look forward to a great 2021 spring season.
