Change in the date and place of the Busan International Sports Festival

This notice is due to the Organizing Committee’s need to make a change in the date and place of the Busan International Sports Festival.

The new dates are July 27 through August 4. The location will be near Seoul, Korea this year.

Here is the schedule:

  • Friday, July 27 — all members leave US for Seoul, Korea will arrive Saturday, July 28.
