REMINDER OF WHAT THE PAYMENT COVERS:
Every national organiser must pay a 2020 IPSC subscription fee of GBP £275. This replaces the previous participant and accompanying guest fees. The subscription fee includes all of the following for participants: accommodation, travel in and around London (participants receive a travel card on arrival) and all meals. The IPSC subscription fee also includes the cost of all workshops, tours and other events and excursions associated with the IPSC programme. The IPSC subscription fee does not include the cost of the participants’ air travel to and from London or the cost of the participants’ travel from the airports in London to their hotels.
The IPSC subscription fee also includes the following for up to two accompanying guests per participant for the duration of the five-day IPSC programme: attendance to the welcome reception on the Monday and evening reception on the Friday, the heats and final. The IPSC subscription fee does not include accommodation, travel in and around London, any other meals or the cost of the accompanying guests’ air travel to and from London. London travel information can be found at tfl.gov.uk.
The subscription fee must be paid by national competition organisers in its entirety. The fee must be paid by Monday, 3 February. If the ESU does not receive the fee by Monday, 3 February, the ESU reserves the right to exclude the relevant participant from the competition. Note that although the payment must be made by the national organisers to the ESU, parts of the fee may be passed on to accompanying guests and others as seen fit.
The IPSC subscription fee is required from all organisers of IPSC feeder competitions in order to best allow the ESU to plan effectively for each year’s activities and processes. If you have any concerns about the payment, including the timing of the payment, please contact the IPSC convenor.
