The COVID-19 virus situation has caused many groups, including CURLSASK, to reassess ongoing and upcoming events and gatherings. After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the Masters Provincial Championship and U18 Provincial qualifiers scheduled to take place this weekend (March 12-15, 2020).
“This is obviously a very difficult decision. said Executive Director Ashley Howard, however, given the public health risk posed by COVID-19, we feel it’s a prudent response to protect our curlers in Saskatchewan. Please rest assured making every attempt to avoid any unnecessary health and safety risks to our athletes, umpires and host communities.”
- Curling Canada has also announced the postponement of the 2020 Canad Inns Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships and Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship.
- The World Curling Federation has also made the decision to cancel the Women’s World Curling Championship in Prince George.
- Curling Canada has said the 2020 U18 Canadian Curling Championships, in Sudbury, Ont., from April 20-25, will be re-evaluated in the coming days.
With respect to future CURLSASK events, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide further update on Tuesday March 17th.
