CENTRE of CURLING EXCELLENCE COMMUNIQUE REGARDING 2020 SUMMER CAMPS

In light of the COVID-19 crisis and guidelines set by the province of New Brunswick, the CCE Board has voted to cancel the July/August 2020 summer camps. The camps depend on a large number of participants from outside the province, and those curlers will not be able to attend due to New Brunswick restrictions prohibiting visitors from outside the province.

While much is still uncertain, we are looking for and planning ahead to have events in place for a best-case scenario. We will continue to monitor and communicate as we received updated information.
