Peace of mind

Dear editor:
Unlike many fishing tournaments in Northwestern Ontario, the Kenora Bass International, which has changed to a new sponsor (Shaw Direct), is lenient on cancellations.
I had to cancel on two different occasions, and they gave me the option of either a refund or to carry my registration over to the following year.
I got this same option from the tournaments in Sioux Narrows, Morson, and International Falls.
Committed participants will have “peace of mind” if they have these same options rather than forfeiting an entry fee at those tournaments that have stringent rules concerning cancellations.
The changing economy could have a serious effect on keeping participants coming to these events knowing they could lose their entry fee because of circumstances they have no control over.
