As the event is scheduled on a Saturday in the winter, we might be faced with inclement weather. We will attempt to run the invitational as long as it does not pose a threat to the safety of our schools in attendance. Due to the nature of organizing and purchasing materials for the competition, we unfortunately cannot offer full refunds to schools should we be forced to cancel due to the weather. We will, however, distribute the event materials to all registered teams through a secure website so that your team will still hopefully benefit from a full set of event resources before your regional tournament. In addition, once the costs for the invitational have been incurred, the possibility of providing partial refunds for teams will be thoroughly investigated so that teams can be reimbursed their precious funds.
