  2. Each event application will have a corresponding preliminary financial plan and a final financial plan. The event application and the preliminary financial plan must be submitted together.
  3. The preliminary financial plan will provide some gross estimates of income, expenses, and a number of projected entries.
  4. All events will be vetted by the CBC Event Committee who make recommendations and/or forward their recommendations and preliminary approval to the CBC Board
  5. Event applications are requested no later than seven months prior to the event unless it is a National which would require a minimum of 18 months.
