It is Colorado and we have no idea what January 11th will have in store for us. Should we have to cancel the event we will work on refunding all fees to teams. Given the amount of tournaments in the area we will most likely not resechudle the event.
Should we have to cancel the event we will refund teams minus the $5 for processing fees.
