Club Directors
Message from CBTF

This will confirm that the Board of Directors agreed that there will not be a traditional Winner Championship event in person in the summer of 2021, and we will be aiming to have a Canadian Winner Championship event in its usual form in 2022, provided the pandemic situation permits it to occur. We will work towards having that event in Moncton during the first week of July.

In lieu of a traditional national competition in 2021, the Board of Directors approved holding a type “yellow” competition. In order to plan that event, we require input and information from our members.

A survey link is included below. Please complete the survey no later than February 20, 2021? We will then compile the results, and work with the technical committee and board of directors to hold our virtual national event. Thank you for the hard work that you do in supporting our sport!
