Hotels
Bids: I really need to make sure that teams that put in bids are actually coming to the tourney. If I don't have a check, I'm not likely to hold a spot for your team. That is: checks trumps expression of interest. Makes everyone's life easier, esp. mine! since I don't have to 'play favorites.'
REFUNDS/CANCELLATION:
If the tourney is cancelled, teams will receive partial refunds after the TD has covered his costs.
If an individual team cancels or fails to appear, the team will receive a refund at the sole discretion of the TD. Note well that the TD is incentivized to provide some refund in order to make sure that there are enough teams to make all the divisions work. So, if you bail 3 days before the tourney, you are likely to receive a $25 refund. If you bail 2 weeks before the tourney, you are likely to receive a $40 refund. If you bail more than two full weeks before the tourney, you will likely receive a full refund. Sound fair? Good!
Remember, your entire division is counting on your team to show up and play all of its games. One price of diversity (e.g. attempting to have a coed division, women's division, let alone *both* at the same event) means that the fields we have are carefully split up between the attending teams. So far, it's worked out really well and folks have generally had an excellent time at the RTS events. I'm really looking forward to April 10th!
