It is with deep regret that East-West Optimist and the Hollywood Dodgers (HD) Youth Organization have once again decided to cancel the HD Las Vegas Invitational. While numbers related to COVID-19 are improving and restrictions are being loosened, the threat of other variants (which could lead to another surge in infections) remains. There is no way to know how severe or transmissible such variants might be and whether current vaccines and treatments will prove effective against them. There are still too many uncertainties that make planning the tournament unviable.
Our primary concern continues to be the safety and well-being of all tournament participants, spectators, and service providers. We appreciate your patience and understanding and hope to see you in Las Vegas in 2023. In the meantime, please be safe and take care.
