The Canadian Championships are postponed due to general shortage of snow-free ice.

We will try for 21/22 February, although longer term forecasts are not yet that encouraging .....

Watch this space!

Postponed again, due to (lack of) ice conditions.

Kingston still has several inches of snow cover over slush, caused by the snow load flooding the ice, so a thaw-rain-freeze cycle would be wonderful.  Other sites are likely the same.

Date  (and venue) for next attempt tbd, weather willing.
