Thanks for reaching out.
I made the difficult decision in the third week of March to not produce the events in Oliver this year. The utmost of concern was bringing in 1500+ athletes, families and spectators to the Oliver community and potentially overwhelming the community’s health care resources that may have already been stretched with the current situation.
With such amazing support year over year from the community with volunteers, we were concerned with the potential extra exposure that this may bring the town. Our athletes have also faced training challenges with facilities being closed, with safety at the forefront when we make decisions, we just couldn’t risk the health and safety of our host community, volunteers, athletes and crew.
The Town and Parks and Rec were notified early on and obviously understand the decision, which was reinforced not too many days after it was made by BC’s medical officer of health issuing the mandate to not allow large gatherings for the foreseeable future.

We are already planning our return to our favourite venue in 2021!
