Those teams will be subject to availability at the time that the tournament is informed of the re-categorization.
You will not be accepted into the tournament until payment is received.
You will be contacted when you have been officially accepted into the tournament.
Divisions will be cancelled at the discretion of the tournament committee due to low numbers. We will let teams know as soon as we can.
