  Marietta is a city located in central Cobb County, Georgia GR6, and is its county seat.

  As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 58,748, making it one of metro Atlanta's largest suburbs.
  Census Estimates of 2005 indicate a population of 61,261. Marietta is the third largest of three principal cities (by
  population) of and is included in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is
  included in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Gainesville, Georgia-Alabama (part) Combined Statistical Area.

  Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU), Chattahoochee Technical College and Life University are located
  here, and the city operates its own school district, separate from the county. Dobbins Air Reserve Base is on the
  south side of town, separated from SPSU by a Lockheed-Martin manufacturing plant. The major local landmark in
  Marietta is the Big Chicken, a large, metal, animated chicken structure atop what is now a Kentucky Fried Chicken,
  located east of downtown at one of the city's busiest intersections - Cobb Parkway and Roswell Street. Even as the
  city has become more urbanized, locals still give directions by referencing it.

  Downtown Marietta features Glover Park, the historic town square and former location of the county courthouse. The
  Strand Theatre on the square is being renovated back to its original design. The Marietta Gone with the Wind
  Museum, also called "Scarlett On the Square," houses one of the world's most extensive collections of memorabilia
  related to both the book and the film. The CSX trains between Atlanta and Chattanooga (Western & Atlantic
  Subdivision) still run a block west of the town square, past the train depot (now the visitor centre) and the Kennesaw
  House, one of only two buildings in Marietta not burned to the ground in Sherman's March to the Sea.

        For any reason the above schedule is not suitable, please contact us and subject to supplier deadlines, we
        are happy to revise the schedule wherever possible.

        If you have to cancel your arrangements with FCm and cancellation charges are applicable from the
        suppliers, a cancellation invoice will be issued at the time of cancellation.

        Billets & Fixtures:

        We go to great lengths to ensure the reliability and success of every sporting fixture we arrange. While we
        take every possible step to prevent tour fixtures suffering last minute cancellations, in a very small minority of
        cases, this can happen. Unless a cancelled fixture is the only fixture of a one-fixture tour and has been
        cancelled for reasons other than force majeure, we cannot be held responsible for this and it will be
        considered a minor change
        Our ground agent in conjunction with FCm Sports will arrange the necessary fixtures against teams of a
        suitable standard. However, as hosting fixtures represents a favour by a non commercial club / institution,
        FCm Sports or their Ground handlers cannot be held responsible for adverse conditions or unforeseen
        reasons causing cancellation of fixtures, or lack of performance on the part of the hosting club or institution.
        Should there be a breakdown in the arrangements for hosting or matches causing a need for alternative last
        minute adjustments to the tour itinerary, cost for these alternative arrangements if incurred, will be billed as
        additional costs. We must also draw your attention to that fact that FCm Sports along with our respective
        Ground handlers throughout the world are in constant communication with schools and clubs regarding their
        ability to field teams of the correct age. Should there be an obvious infringement the FCm Sports manager
        along with the tour leader will seek a resolution that could possibly affect the playing of the fixture. The final
        decision will be at the discretion of the tour leader. FCm Sports or their ground handlers cannot be held
        responsible for any such occurrences.
        Where billeting with host families is arranged, it is the responsibility of the touring staff to supervise and
        organize activities should any host family be unable to look after a student at any time during the tour. We
        must stress that this supervision is not the responsibility of the host.

FCm Travel Solutions Provision of Event Management

        FCm Travel will act on your behalf, providing conference, event and group travel arrangements.

        Please note the following points:

        FCm Travel Policy
         Passport and visa requirements will be advised for UK passport holders. Details of any non-UK nationals
           travelling on overseas arrangements must be notified to FCm Travel.
         All charges, local taxes and VAT will be quoted in Sterling (GBP). All rates are subject to adjustment
           resulting from fluctuation in currency exchange rates.
         Provisional reservations can be made on your behalf without liability. An ‘option’ can be held pending
           formal confirmation for an agreed time period after which time the option will expire and release any
           provisional reservations.
         Once we confirm a reservation with the principal on your behalf, you are bound by the Terms &
           Conditions imposed by that principal. This applies should you confirm either verbally or in writing to us. A
           formal acceptance of Terms & Conditions may be required.

        Terms & Conditions of the Principals
         Each principal (hotel, airline, etc) maintain their own Terms & Conditions for reservations made by FCm
           Travel on your behalf. The Terms & Conditions vary from supplier to supplier and form the contract
           between you, the client, and the principal.
         Most principals and suppliers (hotels, airlines, etc) require some form of pre-payment either by deposit or
           pre-payment in full. Deposit amounts vary but usually equate to between 25 & 40% of the value of the
           reservation with the balance payable in stages, prior to departure.
         Principals will levy a cancellation fee or penalty should you cancel in full or reduce the number of the
           original party. The cancellation penalty is usually a scale of charges, which increase the closer to the
           event the cancellation notification, is received.
         It is our policy to accept the Terms & Conditions imposed by the principal unless these are deemed to be
           unreasonable, in which case we will act on your behalf to negotiate more reasonable terms.
         In the event of a dispute arising from cancellation charges we will endeavour to effect a reduction in
           charges levied, although this will be at the discretion of the principal.

        Accounting & Finance
         FCm Travel will manage any billing or pre-payment arrangements on your behalf.
         A payment schedule will be generated as appropriate. Invoices will be issued in order to allow for the
           transfer of funds within the terms of the supplier. In some instances, charges may be settled direct with
           the venue/supplier should you prefer.
         FCm will negotiate the most cost effective rates on your behalf. Often suppliers will quote on an agent’s
           special ‘nett’ rate upon which a handling charge will be made.
         All charges. Local VAT and taxes will be included in the prices that will be quoted in Sterling (GBP).
         Any ‘drinks on consumption’ requesting a bill back facility on-site will incur a 15% handling fee.
