    In these times, a lot of players are waiting till the last minute which is understandable. Also, lots of players are hoping the mandatory masking rule goes away, which is up to the Alberta government. That being said, I am happy with the numbers so far.

        The Alberta Government last night called a State of Health Emergency and imposed more COVID-19 regulations. As a result, the Banff Centre will now require Proof of Vaccination before entering their buildings and masks must be worn indoors. The regulations are a bit confusing, but at this point our tournament will forge ahead. One possible benefit, is that we may now get two large playing halls for the price of one, but this is still being determined.
