The Women’s Intersectional Team Event in Naples has been cancelled for 2005 due to the damage the club suffered from Hurricane Wilma. All alternatives were considered, but with 280 players, it was not possible to move the event to another site on such short notice or to move the date. Larry Eichenbaum will update the Intersectional web site soon.
