It is with the deepest regret that we must inform all members that our annual Ice Show has been cancelled. Due to closures and mandates imposed by both the Provincial and Federal governments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Skate Canada made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all sanctioned events which, unfortunately, includes our Ice Show.
We ABSOLUTELY understand how disappointed everyone will be with this news. Please know that we share this sentiment; however, we also understand the seriousness of the current health crisis our country is facing, so we stand with their decision.
We know you will have many questions including what will happen to fees paid for this event and we ask for your patience. As this is an unprecedented and extremely fluid situation for GSC, we need time to sort details. We must also await further information from the Town of Georgina to advise us when the arena will be accessible to us again.
Further, both our Annual General Members Meeting (AGM) scheduled for April 15, 2020, and our Starskate banquet are postponed and will be rescheduled for a date to be determined. We will continue to update you regarding these events so please watch our website and social media for further information.
A sincere thanks goes to all members for your support in this challenging time. Rest assured the health and well-being of all our skating families remains our top priority.
