They said on March 14th that they would wait until May 1st to make a final decision regarding cancelation, then eight days later, they announced that they were canceling. Strange.
They said they would be making a decision BY May 1st to give people as much time as possible to prepare. However they probably want people to know ASAP if its going to be cancelled so people can prepare for the comp, or cancel flights and other plans. At the current moment in time it looks like how everything is being handled and how the virus is spreading, this won’t be over for a while, so I think they made a reasonable decision.
