Cancellation Policy

The dates will be scheduled around known holidays and school/organization breaks. If a group meeting needs rescheduled then please provide PMT with advanced notice. Rescheduling may not be possible.

If a group is cancelled without make-up then 50% of the event cost is still due to PMT. If PMT Staff is ill then arrangements will be made to hopefully provide coverage by another PMT Staff Member. If not, then club will have a make-up date.

Failure to give 24-hour notice as outlined above will result in a “No Show” fee being added to your account. Additionally please understand that the club ends as originally scheduled. Your instructor will wait at least ten minutes after the scheduled group time, before declaring the meeting a “no show.”
