Over the past two years, as many may have noticed, we have been a bit relaxed in enforcing our published cancellation policy. In short, we did not want anyone to feel a financial obligation to attend an event if they were showing COVID-19 symptoms or had become uncomfortable with travel or contact. This felt appropriate as we navigated unchartered territory with the pandemic.
As we continue to navigate the pandemic as well as other forces out of our control, primarily the rising cost of travel, we are officially returning to our pre-pandemic cancellation policies. In order for our events to be operationally successful (and financially sound), we plan and execute events based on the level of interest. Late and last-minute cancellations make it difficult to plan and execute the events members have come to expect from our National Solo Series.
In other words, we do understand that the cost of attending an event is on the rise, and we ask that participants understand that the same thing is happening to event operation costs. If you find that you are unable to make an event, please remember to let us know as soon as possible so that we can accurately staff events, set run/work orders, determine chiefs, etc.
As a reminder, the National Solo cancellation policy reads as follows:
All cancellations must be made in writing.
Please contact Nikki Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or to cancel.
