  • Safety dictates that competition will cease if thunder is heard or lightning is spotted
  • Games will not be re-scheduled. Games will re-start, in real time, 20 minutes after the last bolt was sighted or sooner if the sky clears
  • If the entire Tournament needs to be cancelled all teams will receive a partial refund of their tournament fees. All other weather situation refunds are at the discretion of the LI Elite Showcase Directors.
