For Immediate Release // Jeffersonville, VT // July 31, 2020

The Disc Golf Pro Tour and MVP Open at Maple Hill have made the decision to move the date for this year’s event from August 28-30, 2020 to September 11-13, 2020, two weeks later than originally planned. The date change is related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the alteration allows travelling professional competitors enough time to quarantine.

With the change, the Green Mountain Championship will be next in line for touring professionals after Discraft’s Ledgestone Insurance Open, which allows plenty of time for competitors to quarantine in line with Vermont state policy before the event. After Vermont, touring professionals will be able to head south to Massachusetts without quarantining, as travelers from Vermont are exempt from quarantine since they are coming from a state identified as “lower risk” by the Massachusetts State Government. 

In addition to the change of date for the MVP Open the Silver Series event, Canadian Nationals, has been cancelled by the event team. There are restrictions on entering Canada for US Citizens, and the event team felt it best to alter the format of the event for this season. We hope to work with the event team and return to PEI in the future.

The Disc Golf Pro Tour is committed to following all state and federal policies relating to COVID-19 at every event on tour. The DGPT mandates that all competitors, staff, volunteers, and media adhere to all DGPT COVID-19 Policies & Best Practices, including our Testing and Contact Tracing Policies. The Tour will ensure compliance with all policies when entering new states. 

The DGPT is working with Vermont State officials to ensure the event, and the travel to it, are conducted in accordance with State policy. The Tour is also working with Smugglers’ Notch Resort to outline player options for travel to the Resort. The DGPT will outline all quarantine and Testing options for competitors in the Green Mountain Championship directly.
