Statement from The Sarasota-Bradenton Organising Committee on Hurricane Irma – Sunday Update

10 September 2017

First, we’d like to thank everyone for the overwhelming outpouring of support. Your sentiments are truly appreciated.

As of now (Saturday morning), the Sarasota-Bradenton area is under a Hurricane Warning. Through our discussions with Sarasota County Emergency Management, conditions are expected to deteriorate on Sunday afternoon. Our community will experience strong winds and rain, which will last through Monday afternoon.

As mentioned in a previous statement, buildout has been delayed to allow the weather system to pass through. Our Operations Team has worked countless hours, ensuring that all buildout material is secure. Moreover, our Manger of Athlete Services remains in touch with Team Managers from the 71 participating countries. Due to airport closures around the state of Florida, some delegates will not arrive on schedule for team training. We are doing everything possible to assist with their travel arrangements.

Thank you again for your support. We will update you again once Irma has moved out of Florida.

  1. Intrigued by the thought of a “Manger of Athlete Services” – surrounded by cows, shepherds and Wise Men, I would guess. All praying for a date with the Worlds that Irma doesn’t spoil.
