Please note this clarification to the 9/18/2019 email regarding Elite Sports. Elite Sports (Carlos Vega) requested that two members of our board not make any contact with him regarding a dispute over the dismissal of Robert Hardman. The LVSSA BOD’s has decided “it” as a whole, will NOT interact or do business with Elite Sports. This does not affect our LVSSA membership; feel free to patronize Elite Sports. We continue our partnership with SSUSA, CEO Terry Hennessey and all vendors at these events.
