Amidst the gloom of the coronavirus pandemic, a ray of good news: The 2020 ACPT has been rescheduled for Sept. 11-13 — as usual at the Stamford Marriott Hotel.
Registration will reopen in a few months, after life (fingers crossed) has returned to normal and the pandemic has passed.
Meanwhile, all payments for the live tournament on March 20-22 are being refunded. This is a slow process, so if you haven't received a refund yet, please be patient.
Registrations for at-home solving of this year's puzzles, either online or by mail, will be refunded upon request.
A reminder: If you reserved a guestroom for the March 20-22 weekend, you should call the hotel to cancel.
I hope to see you in September.
