Fri, 10 Apr 2020 20:08:00 +1000


Q            Are you sure Hattah is still going ahead ?

A             We are guided by Government regulations and advice. If we can, we will. If we can’t because of regulation, the event may have to be cancelled for 2020.

Q            What if I enter and the event is cancelled. Do I get a refund ?

A             Yes. If the event is unable to be conducted for 2020 because of COVID-19, ALL ENTRIES WILL BE REFUNDED 100% and paid  back to the account that the entry was originally processed from. All refunds will be   by PayPal transaction reversal.

Q            What if my state still has closed borders and other aren’t ? Will I get a refund ?

A             Yes you will – 100% refund if the border of your state remains closed because of COVID-19

Q            What if I book accommodation and the event doesn’t go ahead ?

A             If you have followed the guidelines and rang the accommodation provider direct and confirmed the details with them, there will be no out of pocket expense to you. Most accommodation providers are not taking deposits, or allowing cancellation within 24 hours of the date.

Q            Will the event be exactly the same as previous years ?

A             Maybe not. We will be guided by any restrictions and guidelines set by the Australian and State Governments, along with our governing body at the time. All changes and information will be posted on our official social media and website.

Q            Why do you think you can still run the event ?

A             We are guided by the policies of the Federal and State Governments. If the restrictions do not look like being lifted or eased, the event cannot proceed and all entries will be refunded 100%. We feel that if there is ANY chance of running the event in any form, we owe it to the local community, businesses and competitors to provide some light at the end of the dark tunnel that many are in at the moment. The community, businesses and sponsors have made this event possible for over 25 years. If we can do something in return we will.

Q            What social distancing etc will be in place ?

A             If it is possible to run the event, we will follow the guidelines of all authorities in regards to social distancing/health initiatives that are in place at the time.

Q            When will you know if the event will be able to proceed ?

A             We will assess the situation again prior to entries being opened and advise.

Q            What times will the entries be open ?

A             The same times will be applied to the entry process, just on the different date of May 16th

Q            I didn’t receive our pre entry for top 3 placegetter from 2019 yet ?

A             Some were put on hold in light of the current situation. These will now be finalised and sent
