However, we understand that there may be instances when you are unable to participate due to unforeseen circumstances. Please using the following steps below if you are no longer able to attend the event you are signed up for.

  • If you are unable to find a substitute yourself, please let us know at least 24 hours before the event begins so we can find a replacement for you. There are people on the waiting list that will gladly take your spot so please let us know as soon as possible so we can give them enough notice to participate.
