Travel Recommendation To International Umpires With Plans to Attend The 2020 USAFL Nationals
An important message from Laurie Rupe – USAFLUA International Liaison
June 15, 2020
Hello Fellow Aussie Rules Umpires,
I hope this email finds you in good health and that your family and loved ones are staying healthy and safe. I wanted to reach out to provide an update on 2020 USAFL Nationals. First of all, thank you all for showing interest in making the trip to come over and help us with our National tournament, we couldn’t do it without help from you!
At this time, the USAFL has not made a decision about whether we will have our National tournament yet and we don’t have an exact date for when that decision will be made. Given that we don’t have an official decision date yet and we have less than 4 months until our tournament date, the USAFL Umpires’ Association recommends that you don’t book any travel for this year’s tournament and that you start saving for 2021! If you have already booked your trip and feel comfortable coming over, we are still happy to host you and will put you to work.
This is such a crazy year for sports, traveling and our normal routines and I wish I was sending this email under different circumstances but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
