Entries will only be confirmed once payment (preferably by BACS) has been received by the LCBA Treasurer using the details provided in the acknowledgement email.  Entries and payment must be received by 18 February 2022.  Should any pair wish to withdraw once entered, they may do so and receive a refund provided that their withdrawal is notified to the organiser by 18 February 2022.  Refunds for withdrawals made after this date will be at the discretion of the organiser.
