We regret to inform you that the 2012 Leisure Olympics has been cancelled.
The smaller, family oriented alternative to the raunchy and profane Over the Line Tournament was scheduled to occur this Saturday, July 14th at Crown Point Shores.
After months of planning, preparation, and meetings with the City, with less than 72 hours before the Leisure Olympics were to get underway, the City informed FreePB.org that they would not approve our Special Event Permit.
The City has offered no reasonable explanation of why they would permit the Over the Line event but would not permit the similarly organized Leisure Olympics.
We will make every effort to hold the City accountable for their unfair and discriminatory practices, and will begin by appealing the denial of our event to the Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee.
We will begin the process of issuing full refunds to participants who have pre-registered for the event and offer our sincerest apologies to those who have foregone other obligations in order to participate in the Leisure Olympics.
If possible we will attempt to reschedule the Leisure Olympics for a later date in 2012.
We'll keep you posted and are apologize again for this regrettable turn of events.
