Nevada approves tournaments TO BEGIN THE DAY AFTER DUBLIN DIRTY
NEVADA MOVES DUBLIN DIRTY TO MAY
The state of Nevada has forced the postponement of Dublin Dirty…again. In 2020, the state shut down the tournament the day before we were set to play. Now, a mandate from the Governor is forcing the tournament to be postponed even though tournaments in Nevada are set to begin March 15th, the day after Dublin would have ended. Are things going to drastically change between Sunday, March 14th and Monday, March 15th? Does 24-hours really make that big of a difference? We don’t get it. We have been fighting to make Dublin happen on the weekend of March 12th-14th. We have been working non-stop with local officials to create a COVID plan that adheres to state guidelines. As a major event production firm, we are more than capable of adhering to state guidelines and we are ready to go. However, because the Governor says privately-owned tournaments can’t happen until March 15th, we can’t even submit our plan.
To say we are frustrated by the state of Nevada is an understatement. We know the dangers of this pandemic, and we do not take COVID lightly. We also believe we should be held to the same guidelines as other businesses and government entities. There can be hundreds of shoppers indoors at Costco, 250 children inside a school, unlimited outdoor restaurant seating, but not 20 people on an outdoor field? We can’t think of one logical reason why we can’t play. Especially since city and school sports have been given the go-ahead. And especially when tournaments will be permitted a mere one day later. This is not our choice. The state has let many small businesses like ours fall through the cracks.
THESE DATES ARE FIRM!
So what are we going to do?
We are going to throw one of the greatest tournaments on the planet on the weekend of May 21-23, 2021! Thanks to the City of Sparks, THESE DATES ARE FIRM! We aren’t changing them again. And we’re going to go ALL OUT! The obscene number of giveaways, the Arseway wheel, the Irish atmosphere…this is, after all, to lay claim on winning the first-ever two-year championship. It’s going to be one epic spring Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.
Dublin is sold out. We are reaching out individually to the coach of each team. Teams who are registered for Dublin will have two options: roll over to the new May dates or get a refund. If any team can’t make it, we will begin contacting the coaches on the waiting list. Please do not contact us if you are not a coach.
If any registered team doesn’t want a piece of this green, we will re-open registration one week from today, Friday, February 26th at 9am.
We can’t wait to finally play this May.
NEW IN 2021
FRIDAY NIGHT START: We’re ready to start this party early! Due to increased demand, we are expanding the tournament to include games on Friday night at Golden Eagle Regional Park! There are only a handful of spots available. Registration for these Friday night start time spots will open on February 1st.
NEW PLAYER CHIP RULES: We’ve changed the player chip rules and added more roster points to each division. In 2021, men’s teams are allowed 6 points and coed 4 (women players do not count toward point value). See The Rules for more info.
