Illinois FTC bad weather policy - in the event of a snow or other weather driven cancellation

  1. The host team will investigate the possibility of rescheduling the event.
    Unfortunately we expect it will be difficult to do this given the logistics, but we will check into this (it could take a few days to determine)
  2. Who advances in event of a  cancellation:
    1. The same number of teams will advance to the state championship as planned
    2. The state planning committee will randomly pick the teams to advance from the list of registered teams.
      example: If event is planned to advance 5 teams -  then 5 teams that have not already qualified for state will be randomly chosen from the participation list.
