IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR LEAD/SPEED NATIONALS

Registration

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 registrar@climbontario.ca

Coaches

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 registrar@climbontario.ca.

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.  

New Board of Directors

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:

  • Sharon Vukojevic 
  • Elina Avramova
  • Shaun Hunter
  • Manh Ellis

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.
