8. A licence application must be sent to the board at least 60 days before the date on which the applicant proposes to carry on the activities authorized by the licence.
Despite the foregoing, an application for an in-hall bingo licence and a bingo hall manager’s licence must be sent at least 4 months before the beginning of the period of validity of the licence applied for, as determined in section 7.
The person or partnership that submits an application for authorization to the board may be relieved from the default to comply with the period for sending a licence application provided for in the first and second paragraphs to avoid serious harm to a charitable or religious organization. Where the applicant is relieved from the default, the board adjusts, if applicable, the period of validity of the licence to the period of validity established in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 7 on the basis of the administrative region where the hall covered by the application is situated.
