Failure to attend the Event without notification will result in disciplinary procedure and possible exclusion from future Events. As per EASB policy entry fees are non-refundable.

Please arrive at the Event and report to the TD by the 'Arrival Time’. As this Event is drawn on the day, any player who is not in attendance, or has not, by the 'Arrival Time', notified the TD by phone, will not be included in the draw. Once you have reported in to the TD you must ensure you are available to commence playing as soon as you are called. Failure to acknowledge your call, having reported to the TD or not, will result in the standard match procedures for lateness to apply.

Lateness will be penalised as follows: If not present when called by the TD, one frame shall be forfeited. Fifteen minutes after start time, a further frame will be forfeited. Thirty minutes after the start time, the match shall be forfeited. In the case of Billiards, 50 points would be forfeited if a player is not present at the start time, and a further 50 points every 15 minutes until 30 minutes after the start time.
