Please make sure you are able to attend both dates, original and reserve days. We will not refund the pre-payments in case you are not able to attend reserve days.
The idea behind two reserve days is to have longer period and more chances to do the valid comp... Example: If we will see first two competition days Saturday and Sunday unflyable, we will start with the comp on Monday. All the decisions will be sended by mail to the competitors 2-3 days prior.
Maximum competition days is 5. In case we will start with the task on Saturday, we will use only one reserve day (Wednesday). In case we will start with the comp on Sunday or Monday, we may also use second reserve day.
We will use reserve days until we have at least three valid tasks.
In case of not proper weather conditions (no decent chances for comp with 2-3 tasks), we will use the reserve dates - one week later, same schedule.
