What happens to the team entry requirements for the National Bid tournaments if one of the regular season tournaments is affected by Inclement weather?

If a tournament that is eligible to be used as a qualifying tournament for the National Bid tournament is cancelled, then the teams entered in that tournament will have their requirement to be eligible to participate in the National Bid tournament reduced by one. If a team withdraws from a tournament due to inclement weather but the tournament is still held, then that team may appeal to the Region to have their minimum requirement lowered by one. There will be no limit to the number of times a team may have their requirement lowered if their schedule is affected by cancelled tournaments.
