Parliament: Proposed laws will protect event deposits from being forfeited, but do not mean immediate refunds, says Shanmugam

(straits Times reported April 7, 2020)

we had a previous discussion on this with @beast, @lonewolf...legally, Event Entry Fee is not Event Deposits, and SLA (Service Level Agreement) was never signed, but Races signed up are always Paid In Full without the Participants reading on the Terms & Conditions or Rules & Regulations...have you?

@SG RED DEVIL had mentioned that in future, need to be ready to read on the R&R before sign-up for any Race...should we be signing on what we agreed first and not signup on what we do not agree like OMG! No refund, no signup?

Unless, a collective petition by Participants affected by the No Refund is to appeal to the Law Minister, yes, this is still possible because So many things during this COVID-19 period is no longer follow policy. ..why not...collectively say for 10,000 who paid $75 on average...that is almost $3/4 million...being held by race organizer claiming they paid for cancelled expenses and costs to vendors...is there evidence on that payment, how much...there is never transparency in accounting?

Importantly, we had not been an informed consumer as Participant to Races, and it is time we must be "awakened" because of Covid-19.

Yah I was only wondering what are the chances of trying to argue that race fees are deemed as a form of deposit, to take advantage of the new law, should we need to sue or force any organizers from refusing to refund our fees from a cancelled race. Realistically if there is no refund, I doubt we can round up most the race participants to petition for the refund. Many will just simply walk away as the race fee is just a small sum of money. 

If it is remotely possible to petition under the new law, does the new law has power over a force majeure clause in the indemnity form that protects organizers from refunding even under the circumstance of a pandemic? (Note: I don't read all the rules and regulations so I am just assuming that this force majeure clause exists. I also don't think we can boycott any races that does not promise a refund, as this should be something that will protect the interests of the organizer.)

Maybe we are just thinking too far ahead.

    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...

    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
