We regret to confirm that the 2020 Provincial Championships and the 2020 Junior Provincial Championships are now cancelled, and the 2020 WWC Junior Open has been postponed.
Over the past several months, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Manitoba in the hopes that these provincial championships could go ahead. We brainstormed different formats and ideas and tried to find ways to run these events. Unfortunately, the modifications that would need to be made to these tournaments in order for them to be held with minimal risk would render them very exclusionary and unlike past provincial events. Furthermore, as of two weeks ago, the Province was "strongly recommending" that no tournament or events be held, and with cases still on the rise, we felt it best to not move forward with both Provincial Championship tournaments.
No other tournaments have been modified at this time. We hope that tournaments like the Herb Richard, the WWC Junior Open (currently postponed), some of the Rural Super Series, and others can still go ahead. We are also developing new "COVID-adapted" tournament formats and hope to host several throughout the season.
Take care. We look forward to seeing you soon!
