Late this morning (Thursday November 19, 2020) the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit advised that we could not hold the event in the City of Barrie. We have tried our best many times to secure a location for the Toronto Pro Qualifier and the CPA President's Cup (Toronto, Vaughan, Hamilton, Kitchener, Barrie).
Since we received the news this morning we have been trying to find another location. Unfortunately we were unable to and at this point we must regretfully cancel the event.
We apologize for the inconvenience (to put it mildly) that this has caused. We, like you, are devastated to deliver this news.
We are grateful to our loyal competitors who have worked so hard under pandemic conditions to participate. Our heartfelt apologies to all of you.
We will refund your registration fees.
