Insurance:**

The tournament will refund application fees when the event is canceled or postponed, so long as the cancellation or postponement is the sole and direct result of a cause not otherwise excluded. The cause of the cancellation or postponement must occur during the period of insurance and be beyond the control of both the tournament organizer and the participant(s). Full refunds will only be applicable in the instance that no games have been completed. A partial refund may also be granted if a tournament is shortened due to reasons out of our control. Any partial refunds will be at the sole discretion of the tournament organizer and only after confirmation from the Insurers.
**Please Note: Due to the nature of the agreement with the insurance company, the cost of insurance is not able to be included in the claim. For example, a full cancellation refund is the entry fee minus the cost/rate of insurance. Refunds for insured canceled events are subject to
approval of the insurance claim by the insurance underwriters and is not guaranteed.
