Has anyone heard anything on the Nationals or the Open?  I was hoping we could have the Nationals in August and the Open in December, but that doesn't look likely.  Maybe just the Nationals in Las Vegas in December.

Would the Open get cancelled in favor of the Nationals if they can only do one? Hard to say.

Cancel Open so you will not have to deal with quarantine of foreign players entering from countries with 2nd wave outbreaks.

Substitute Nationals in December but relocate it to Lebanon, Kansas so everyone can drive to the event and play outdoors in a corn or wheat maze wind block system.   Bonus points awarded for finding your way to the proper table through the maze on time.

as a Kansan I can tell you you don't want to play outdoors here. Way too much wind

Currently, neither the Open or Nationals show up on USATT's events page or Omnipong.  If I recall, the Open was a big money maker for USATT (and maybe Nationals was too?).  So if I had to guess, I would think we'd get something in December.  USATT did apply for a PPP "forgivable" loan so that would take care of staff expenditures.
