Poor air quality from wildfires forced suspensions on Tuesday and a full cancellation of Wednesday's rounds. The Air Quality Index improved, but the weather's second punch included heavy lightning, wind and rain on Thursday, forcing even more suspensions.
Please see below for important updates to the event schedule for Friday and Saturday. These changes are designed to ensure competitors in both the Amateur and Junior divisions can play a revised schedule that most closely resembles the original event schedule.
(Latest update as of 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 28)
After reviewing the most recent data regarding the air quality in the Peoria, Illinois area, the PDGA and tournament staff have made the difficult decision to suspend play on Wednesday for the day, resulting in changes to the schedule for the rest of the week.
This is a decision that did not come lightly, and one made with the safety of all competitors in mind.
