A message from the President
Hello to all CNBTA members,
First and foremost, I just want to express my sincere desire that you are all staying safe and secure during this very tense time. Covid-19 has certainly disrupted our daily lives, as well as our sport. But the most important thing is that you and your families are doing what you need to do to stay healthy and safe.
On March 25/20, the CNBTA Board of Directors met via skype to discuss the upcoming season, and where we feel adjustments should be made. Opinions were given that we should NOT completely cancel the 2020 competition season, but we must make some accommodations given our current situation. To that end:
- the 2020 Regional Competition, scheduled for March 28/29, is officially cancelled. Our Treasurer, Sheila Batarla, will be reaching out to club directors to make arrangements for refunds of entry fees.
- the 2020 Ontario Provincial competition, scheduled for May 2/3, has been postponed. This is because as situations are changing daily, we do not feel we would be able to properly plan this event. We also do not know if our gym permit will be in place in a few weeks. It is our hope that we may be able to reschedule this event in June. More information will be available in the coming weeks.
- at this point, we are still hoping we can host our 2020 CNBTA National Championships, to be held in Peterborough, ON, July 3-5/20. This may end up being an 'open' Nationals, with no qualification requirements at all, or simply a 'Welcome Back to Twirling" event. The Board of Directors will make that decision a little closer to the event date.
Above all, I want to ensure our members that the Board of Directors will continue to meet regularly to continue the day-to-day business of the organization. We remain dedicated to our members, most of all our athletes.
Again, stay safe, and keep twirling as much as you can.
