Return Policy for Entry fees, SI hire, Parking and Transport WMOC2020

Dear orienteering friends,

after an unexpected cancellation of the WMOC2020 event, we had to face a difficult task to refund those participants who had already entered the event and paid the fees. That put us in a difficult situation, since significant financial resources had already been spent on the event organisation. In view of the circumstances, we have tried to come up with the most appropriate solution that would be fair for both sides. We would truly appreciate your kind understanding in this matter.

The return policy has been established in accordance with Rule 7.9 of the current IOF Competition Rules.

“7.9 If the event (or part of the event) has to be cancelled due to reasons outside of the organiser’s
control e.g. weather conditions, destruction of terrain, the organiser may retain a minimum proportion of
the entry fee in order to cover committed costs.”

Based on this, and in conjunction with the IOF, we have agreed the following policy:

Fee Return Policy

Entry fee

  • We will deduct 30EUR from each entry fee and the remaining amount will be transferred by 31 st May 2020 to the same account that it was originally paid from. This remaining sum may be subsequently subject to administration charges of relevant banks and the Paypal payment processor.
  • As a reimbursement for the deduction, a 30EUR discount will be offered to those participants who re-enter WMOC 2023.

Fees for SI hire, parking and transport

  • Full refund will be given along with entry fee refund.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you in 2023. We wish only the best to you and your families and a speedy return to normality so you can all compete again as soon as possible.
