Invasion rules and participant codexInvasion rules and participant codex
Every Eurolanche Invasion participant will be informed about the rules and the codex of the project in advance. In case one chooses to participate, one needs to agree to both the codex and the rules.
Terms of the Eurolanche Invasion
1. The number of Invasion participants isn’t limited. An unlimited number of people may join the trip anytime. Eurolanche (hereinafter “Organizer”) may restrict the final number of participants only if a higher number of participants would complicate the overall organization and would substantially raise expenses. If such restriction is necessary, the Organizer would consider the order of the signed participants based on time, i.e. when a respective member sent his/her registration.
2. The pre-registration process for the next Eurolanche Invasion begins via a private announcement for the Eurolanche staff and writers, who may pre-register first. Groups of Eurolanche members, who registered for the past Invasion, but didn’t travel in the end and members of all past Invasions will be next in order. Finally, the pre-registration process for the rest of the Eurolanche members begins via a public announcement at www.eurolanche.com. A pre-registration doesn’t commit a member to do anything; its sole purpose is to secure a place for him/her if he/she would ultimately decide to travel.
3. An approximate date of the next Eurolanche Invasion is announced usually in June, after the NHL releases the schedule for the upcoming season to those Eurolanche members, who have pre-registered themselves. The Organizer informs them about deadlines for the final confirmation of their participation. Usually, the final deadline for full registration (and payment for the plane ticket) is the first week of September.
4. Those Eurolanche members, who have serious interest in the Eurolanche Invasion and would be first-time participants, have to attend the Invasion orientation meeting. The presence of members, who were a part of one or both past two Invasions as well as of members, who live too far away from the location of the meeting, isn’t necessary. The meeting may be organized before or after the registration deadline. If the meeting is organized before the deadline, the pre-registered members, who are considered as substitutes, don’t have to attend the meeting.
5. All Eurolanche Invasion participants travel from Europe to USA and vice versa on the same flight. This rule doesn’t apply to those participants who, live too far away from Central Europe, which is usually the starting point for most participants. All participants stay at the same hotel facility during the entirety of the trip with no exceptions.
6. The Organizer doesn’t guarantee free tickets for Colorado Avalanche games to Eurolanche Invasion participants. If such tickets are available, active Eurolanche members have the preferential right to receive them (if they take part in the trip). The rest of the available tickets will be fairly split between other participants. The Organizer helps all participants with securing their tickets for all games during the entire trip.
7. The Organizer doesn’t guarantee special tickets for post-game meetings with Colorado Avalanche players to Eurolanche Invasion participants. The Organizer helps to arrange alternate meetings with the players, if post-game passes are not available.
8. The Organizer is responsible for the overall organization of the Eurolanche Invasion – from arranging plane tickets (not buying them), accommodation, renting a car, through planning the entire schedule and trips to attend Colorado Avalanche games. The final schedule has to be approved by all participants of the trip.
9. All Eurolanche Invasion participants are required to pay an organizational fee. The amount varies and all pre-registered members will be informed about their value. The only exceptions are members of the staff, active members and members, who made special contribution to the Fan Club.
10. The Eurolanche Invasion is organized only with the participation of the Fan Club President.
