Senior Softball USA (SSUSA) is holding the 2017 World Masters Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada which run from September 22 to October 8.
Following the tragedy of the mass shooting on October 1st, Terry Hennessy, CEO of SSUSA issued the following statement:
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and victims of the terrible mass shooting in Las Vegas last night at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
This tragedy occurred on the last evening of the third session of the World Masters Championships here in Las Vegas.
While we do not know the reason for this attack, we firmly believe that the best answer to any form of terrorism is to continue our lives. Therefore, the fourth session of the World Masters Championships will continue as planned next weekend.
The most powerful force we can weld is to act together to support each other in unity. We intend to do just that by continuing the World Masters Championships.
