East Wenatchee, WA, September 7, 2020 – IASCA Worldwide announces decision regarding INAC SPL competitions (IdBL and Bass Boxing) for 2020 season
The 2020 IASCA IdBL and Bass Boxing INAC events have been cancelled and the season extended to 2021.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been extremely difficult to locate a suitable venue capable of hosting IASCA IdBL and Bass Boxing INAC events for this year” said IASCA President Travis Chin “therefore we felt it best to extend the 2020 IdBL and Bass Boxing seasons through to 2021.”
As previously announced in May of this year, 2020 memberships will be extended and valid through to the 2021season due to the pandemic situation, with the understanding that all memberships must be purchased by September 14th, 2020, no exceptions. Current valid members who achieve the 75 CAP point requirement for IdBL and Bass Boxing before September 14th, 2020 will receive an award at the end of the year.
“We’re sad to have to make this announcement,” Chin continued to say “but, as we are in the latter part of the year without having secured a suitable venue, we had to make a decision that was in the best interest of the competitors. We ca now focus on delivering a top notch event for our members in 2021.”
The 2020 IASCA SQC and IQC INAC events have also been cancelled and the season extended to 2021.
“I’m saddened that we weren’t able to finalize a deal with the venues we were working with, for a collaborated Championship SQ event with Aggieland.” said IASCA President Travis Chin “With everything going on in today’s world, securing a location was near impossible. Any venue willing to host the event had heavy restrictions that would have made fun competition unrealistic, therefore we had to make a decision we didn’t want to make. We’d like to thank everyone involved who worked tirelessly to make the INAC events in 2020 a reality.”
As with IASCA SPL formats, 2020 memberships will be extended and valid through to the 2021 season due to the pandemic situation, with the understanding that all memberships must be purchased by September 14th, 2020, no exceptions.
2020 rules will carry on into 2021 with a few tweaks if needed. CAP points will carry over into 2021 as well as well as automatic invites to the 2021 INAC Championship for all IASCA members, SQ and SPL.
“There are many local events still taking place all across North America,” Chin continued to say “please continue to support these shows and earn points for the 2021 INAC Championship. These event promoters are also working very hard to bring you these shows and they deserve our support.”
