Yesterday we heard the Sweet Adelines International made the difficult decision to cancel all Regional Contests for 2020, (with possible options to compete via video being worked out) We are sad that we will miss connecting with all of Region 26 at regionals. We have been working really hard to prepare, but this is the right choice in this unusual time.
The Provence of Alberta also announced new public health measures. This is the one of concern to us...
The following mass gatherings should be canceled:
Events with more than 50 attendees that involves international participants, critical infrastructure staff, seniors, or other high-risk populations.
We have quite a few members that work in healthcare and as with most SAI choruses, many of our members are seniors.
We have made the decision to cancel rehearsals for the time being. We have not put a length of time on this at the moment, but we will continue to monitor the situation.
We send our love to all of our barbershop family.
Stay strong. xoxo
