Default 2016 Worlds Locations

Have these been awarded? If not when will they be identified? Is it scheduled to be a Pro/Am Worlds as I think I saw mentioned elsewhere?

They don't schedule it as a Pro/Am unless the winning bid offers to do it as such. The longer it takes for them to announce it, the more likely it is they're not getting sufficient bids to host it. I believe that's how Pro Worlds ended up back at Lemon Lake three years after it had already been there...no one else stepped up to do it in a timely enough manner.

I asked because Pittsburgh in 2015 was announced prior to 2013 Worlds being held.

Ideally, you want these things scheduled 3 years out or more. But like I posted earlier, if there aren't enough/any sufficient bids to host the event, you can't schedule it, especially something like Worlds. That isn't the event you just want to hand over to whoever happens to volunteer before some arbitrary deadline.

Of course. I don't think they're panicking yet with only two years to go.

I've also heard rumors over the years that part of the reason the IDGC was built was to have a fallback location for events like Worlds should a year go unbid or a host city/club falls through without enough notice to re-bid the event.

IDGC is too far out in the sticks- no banquet facilities, etc, etc. - if they were going to use IDGC they wouldn't have had to go back to Lemon Lake.
