Cancellation of remaining trips and events
Dear Trakkers - in recognition of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the club's executive has decided to cancel this week's March 15th proposed Sunday trip, and thus our skiing season comes to an end. There will be no further Sunday trips planned. Our planned Annual General Meeting and Year-End Party, scheduled to take place on April 8, is also being cancelled.
We have made this decision after careful consideration of Public Health Canada's guidelines about risk-informed decision-making for mass gatherings during the COVID-19 global outbreak. While our Sunday trips may not traditionally be considered as a "mass gathering", we are extremely mindful of the close proximity of our members while on the bus, and the club's inability to assess potential high-risk factors such as individuals' travel histories or those who may have occupational exposure. Additionally, the demographic in our club is diverse -- including older adults and/or people potentially with immune vulnerabilities -- and we feel that getting out for "one last ski" simply doesn't off-set the potential risk.
We trust that our members respect this decision. Any members who may have signed up and paid for this Sunday's trip will have their accounts credited in full. An additional update re: AGM rescheduling / alternate approach will be communicated once more information is available.
