After discussion over the last few days with Hasbro and ESPN executives, the NSA has been assured that the ALL-STARS tournament is essentially a "done deal."

While signed contracts are still being exchanged by all parties, we are telling you now so that you may take advantage of the 21-day window on the purchase of airline tickets.

In the unlikely event the championship is canceled, players will be reimbursed for travel expenses incurred for the trip to Providence August 15-18, 2003 as long as they provide proper documentation.

Full details of the event are available on the NSA website.

As always we thank you for your patience and look forward to seeing you in Providence.
