2020 Minnesota State Free Throw Contest Cancelled
See Documents for Participant and Winner details
We have decided to cancel the 2020 State Free Throw Contest. The March 28 contest date was cancelled and with the health concerns it would be late May or even June before a make- up contest could be held so the decision was made to cancel the contest for this year. It is unfortunate for the 14 year-old young men and women as this was their last opportunity to share the fun.
– I have done a block cancellation of the hotel reservations at the Holiday Inn for the contestants. With the health crisis the Holiday Inn will give full refunds through April 30 and I would think all the other hotels will be doing the same.
– I will either send back the pizza lunch checks or refund the money to those that have been deposited.
I have checked with the Supreme office and we can use our regional scores with the district and council scores as tie breakers to select our state winners for this year. The state winners will be entered in the International contest with our Supreme office but the contest will be late May or June with the health situation at this time. We will be giving out trophies to the top three finishers and I will be looking for our State Officers and District Deputies help to get them handed and pictures taken later on after the travel and social restrictions have been lifted. I do plan to ask for pictures of the trophy presentations for posting on our website and for our contestants.
I have sent the listing of the trophy winners for 2020 based on the regional scores and the listing of all the contestants who qualified for the State contest this year to be posted on the state website.
Thank you for your patience as we have been looking at our options and your continued support of our contest with your young people. I hope to see many of you next year.
Please call me with any questions or concerns.
Pray for a good and quick resolution to our health situation.
