      Athens Invitational Tournament Participants,
      Thank you for your patience as we dealt with severe weather in Athens-Clarke County. Please pass on this information to your teams as this email only goes out to tournament contacts. We have rescheduled all games that were postponed today due to rain for tomorrow morning. In order to accommodate these changes, we have had to make adjustments:
      - For any game that kicked off and made it to halftime but was weather-delayed, game scores are as stands
      - For any game that kicked off and did not make it to halftime but was weather-delayed, teams will play their second half ONLY with no half-length adjustment and will reflect the score at the time of postponement.
      9U and 10U
      - All 7v7 games at Holland Park will play 20 min halves with a 5 min halftime
      11U and 12U
      - There will be no 9v9 games at Trail Creek Park
      - All 9v9 games will be played at Southeast Clarke Park and will have 20 min halves with a 5 min halftime
      13U and Older
      - All 11v11 games at Holland Park and Trail Creek Park will be shortened to 25 min halves with a 5 min half-time
      - All games at Gordon Street Park and East Jackson Park will play as previously scheduled
      We have done our best to avoid creating any new coaching conflicts. However, some conflicts were unavoidable. If, after weather-delayed second-round games are completed, any teams that are able and willing to play their third-round game as the Division Final, please contact lloydathensunited@yahoo.com.
      Thank you, and good luck to all teams tomorrow!
