Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

In the case of inclement weather, all team advisors will be contacted via email. While sometimes weather can be unpredictable, usually we will make a decision by 4:00pm the day before the event, if not earlier. I will also update the "EVENT NAME" to read "CANCELED" at the top.

 

Depending on the circumstances, we will make every effort to reschedule, rather than outright cancel the event.
