GOOD LUCK to all 91 of our athletes traveling to Montreal this weekend to represent Team Ontario at LSN 2019.
The competition starts early Saturday morning at Allez Up in Montreal and will consist of both Difficulty (D) and Speed (S). Check out the event website – http://climbingcanada.ca/en/lsn-2019/ for additional information.
The OCF Registrar (Davis Barton) will register all Ontario athletes during LSN Registration on Friday afternoon. She will be at Allez Up between 7:00 and 7:30pm (the half hour before the Technical meeting) to distribute athlete bibs to Ontario coaches. For any alternate arrangements, please contact Davis directly at email@example.com
Due to space restrictions at the competition, the CEC will only permit one coach per team/gym to enter ISO at a time. The coach “ISO badge” is interchangeable (i.e., coaches can switch out between rounds), but it can only be used by a coach that has a valid CEC membership. Coach badges will be distributed at the same time as the athlete bibs (see above). For any alternate arrangements, please contact Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, please ensure that you are monitoring the event page that the CEC has created http://climbingcanada.ca/en/lsn-2019/ to ensure that you are aware of any last minute changes or other important information.
We are pleased to announce that the following four members were elected to serve as Directors for a two-year term starting June 1, 2019:
These four will join Will Johnson, Laura Nuesken and Davis Barton to form the 2019/2020 OCF Board of Directors. Thank you to all of the nominees and to all of our members who participated in our Annual General Meeting, in person or by proxy.
We would also like to thank the outgoing Board members, Lisa Gray and Lorraine Winger, for their hard work and dedication to the Board over the past years.
