This is a follow up email as per the last email sent out back in August regarding no school access for Community Groups until Dec 31, 2020.

The districts have confirmed that there will be no Community Use of Schools through February 2021.  We will be meeting again in January to see if it is possible for March and let you know.

-= IMPORTANT UPDATE =-

We have received word from the city and school division about covid, and unfortunately we will not be able to play in the schools for the rest of the calendar year. We will update you with information near the end of the year about possibly resuming play in January.

Statement from City and Schools
We have confirmed with our local school divisions that Community Use of Schools will not be available through the end of December 2020.  The school divisions are currently working on re-entry plans for their students and will not be able to accommodate access to their facilities for the first few months.  We will meet with the school divisions this fall to determine if bookings will be able to resume in January.  At this time we will not be able to book any space for groups in schools.

2020 Season Information

posted 22 Jun 2020, 22:13 by SABC Badminton

Dear St. Albert Badminton member,

As you are aware, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, all sports were put on hold or cancelled, including badminton.  Since March, the City of St. Albert closed all schools which affected our gym time.  The Executives had been holding off cancelling the season, hoping to have a few final playing weeks, but it looks like that will not happen.  We are now officially cancelling the rest of the season. 

On Wednesday, June 10, the Executives held a meeting to discuss some outstanding items: 

·         AGM:  we have also decided to cancel this year’s AGM due to restrictions of large gatherings.

o   The financial statement will be audited the same as in the previous year (Diane Loh and Diane Hajek).

o   The members of the Executive Team will remain the same. THANK YOU all for volunteering (or being “voluntold”):     

President - Billy Ma

Vice President - Naeem Hague

Treasurer - Adam Luv

Secretary - Sokhon Phon

Tournament Director - Royce Loh

Past President - Weng Chee

Web Director - Matt Budd

 

·         Membership:  if you are an active member this season and are planning to join again next season, you will pay half of the membership fee.  If you are planning to join half-way through the season (February 2021), we will waive the fee.

NOTE:  The fee structure will remain the same.

We are hoping to start back again in September 2020.  This will solely depend on the opening of schools.  We will continue to update our website if new information arises.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 

Have a wonderful summer and hope to see all you in September!
