We would like to begin by thanking the players who generously contributed to the various Competition Committee meetings, and made specific recommendations to our board of directors. As was previously announced, our first priority is still to present some type of provincial championship, however we are aware that the likeliness of that being a possibility is very slim. Out of respect for all of our competitors and to avoid any exclusions or favouritism, a provincial championship will only be held if every region in the province is in either a green zone or a yellow zone as established by the Quebec government at upcoming announcement in January.
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our original Scotties and Tankard events which were scheduled to be played in Laval from January 24-31, 2021. There is a lot of organization and behind the scenes work which need to be done ahead of an event as large as that one, and the uncertainty of the current situation has made it too difficult to continue with that original plan. We would like to sincerely thank the organizing committee as well as the city of Laval who invested several hours of work into the planning of the championship, and we hope that we’ll get the opportunity to work with them again in the near future. In the meantime, we are still keeping January 28-31, 2021 on hold as a potential timeslot for a modified provincial championship in a club if the situation in Quebec significantly improves in the new year.
