Today we received news from the Organizing Committee that the 2023 Canadian Championships in Hay River, 22-24 September must be cancelled.

If you are following the news, you will see that there are wildfires in the North and both Hay River and Port Smith have been evacuated. Both towns sustained damaged from the wildfires.

Although the wildfires may be extinguished by 22 September, the roads may still be closed, and the airport will be used to bring back the evacuees.

The TTCAN Board will meet on Thursday night to plan an alternative.

In the meantime, please cancel your flights and cancel the hotel bookings. You may have difficulties contacting the Hotels because the internet and phones may not be working in Hay River.
