A band withdrawing on or before April 30th will be refunded 50% of the paid entry fee. Notification must be received in writing (letter, email) in order to be eligible for a refund.
No refunds will be given for any bands withdrawing after April 30th.
Rationale: The SBF makes significant commitments regarding venue hire and engaging adjudicators based on the initial number of entries. These decisions carry considerable financial obligations which must be honoured, regardless of the number of bands which ultimately participate in the event.
