2020 Interstate Games Cancellation

Posted: 6/2/2020

As of today the Interstate committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020
Interstate Championship Meet. While not a single member of the committee likes the idea of
canceling, we must remember that the competition is Oregon (WHO) and Washington (PSHA),
without one team or the other it is not Interstate!
In all probability, Washington will be canceling their State Finals due to the inability to have
qualifying shows. PSHA will be lucky if shows can be held by July because of the
limitations imposed by the State of Washington. Since they only had a couple of shows last fall,
there are no competitive averages, thus no fair way to pick a team for Interstate. Although the
committee deeply regrets having to cancel Interstate it is the correct decision during a time of
so much uncertainty with no way to pinpoint the progression of the State regulations allowing
Washington to have shows.
In addition, our main way of funding Interstate is at a standstill. As a committee we want to put
on the best show we are capable of, the kind of show you have come to expect when you come
to Interstate.
Sincerely your Interstate committee
