Organizers of the Texas Outlaw Challenge scheduled for June 24-28 have postponed the event, saying that a new date will be announced as soon as possible.
The following is their official statement:
“We regret to report that COVID-19 metrics being published from this past weekend within the Houston area have shown an aggressive increase in positive cases,” The public concern at many venues within our local community is real, and responsible decisions must be made to ensure the safety and health of you, our boating friends. If that isn’t enough, it seems that today’s latest weather report has flash floods and 80% thunderstorms throughout our event area over the next four days. Texas Outlaw Challenge is infamous for setting a high bar of value for it’s guests, and we recognize that the upcoming event, due to uncontrollable circumstances over the past few days, would not have produced an experience representative of our past productions. These are difficult times that are provoking tough decisions. The Outlaws will ride again very soon…that is a promise. We truly regret this unavoidable decision. Safety and health must be a priority for all.”
Registrations will remain on file and will be honored on the future 2020 date, or at next year’s event, scheduled for June 23-27, 2021.
