Event Decision Making Framework for OCups during COVID-19

An Event Decision Making Framework, in consultation with Local Organizing Committees, has been established to:

  • Provide a consistent decision making framework with respect to registration opening/closing, refund and decision points
  • Allows clubs/teams to understand how decisions regarding OCups will be made
  • Guide Zone4 registrations and race notices to reflect dates etc

Please note: Timelines may shift slightly should that be necessary throughout the season (ie if teams are negatively impacted by hotel cancellation date deadlines)
