Hello Curlers, Curling supporters and CVICC stakeholders.
Greetings once again from the organizing Committee of the CVICC. We hope and trust you are doing well. Due to the ongoing desire to find a workable solution for moving forward with this event, please excuse the lateness of this update.
Weighing the pros and cons of attempting to stage the event in 2022 has been a daily task for us over the past several months. This has included, but is not limited to, monitoring provincial health authority updates, communicating with the provincial blind curling bodies and reviewing transportation/accommodation logistics. Sadly, the time has now come where a decision on the matter needs to be rendered.
Please be advised that the 2022 Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championship has officially been cancelled.
Keeping everyone safe and healthy, and the variables that still exist that are out of our control, was the deciding factor in our decision.
We appreciate your understanding in regards to this cancellation and invite you to start planning now for a “triple the fun” event in 2023.
We are also deeply saddened to report that we have lost two dedicated volunteers based at the Ottawa Curling Club. Both Nicole Gourret and Geoff Sheppard passed away recently. This event, past and future doesn’t happen without kind and generous volunteers. Both Nicole and Geoff played key roles in making the CVICC the success that it has become. Rest in Peace Nicole and Geoff!
And before closing, let me reconfirm the commitment of the CCB in regards to the future of not only the CVICC but also Blind Curling in general. If we can be of help to you at the local or provincial level, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Once again, thank you for your continued support of both the CCB and the CVICC.
