That would suck, but it's more of a bitter pill for the contest since several local teams are already committed to the Sam's event. It will mean fewer entries.
But, Kevin's post seems to indicate that they are looking at running the competition separate from the festival. If that's still the case then changing the competition dates wouldn't affect the festival at all.
