play;

the second half of the game and the entire schedule will be delayed by the duration of 
the delay;

o   If the evacuation occurs during the second half of a game, that game may be 
terminated and the score at the time that play was suspended will be the final score; the next round of games will be played when play resumes and the remaining schedule will be played on a delayed basis in its entirety.
