Inclement weather is out of the control of the tournament directors, officials, and site managers. In the event of thunder and/or lightning, all games will be suspended for 20 minutes from the last occurrence. Games will resume at their regularly schedule times. Cancelled games may not be rescheduled. If weather disrupts scheduled games, Management has the authority to adjust the schedule as needed, including, shortening games, adjusting the schedule, etc. In the event of extreme weather, once the event has started, it is up to the tournament directors, officials, and the site managers as to whether the conditions are deemed safe to play on. All decisions final. No refunds will be issued for game cancellations, due to “acts of God” (i.e. rain, severe wind and/or thunder and lightning).
Should the event be cancelled, in its entirety, due conditions out of the control of Management, the amount equal to the initial deposit will be withheld*. A prorated portion of the balance of the entry fee will be refunded to the team. CSE or the IWLCA is not responsible for any other expenses incurred by the team.
*(Management incurs substantial non-refundable costs in preparation for the event. The withheld deposit will help to offset some of these expenses)
