Important Message from BADinTO

Dear BADinTO Members,
The following is some important information about the club moving forward for the rest of the season.

GENERAL CLUB INFORMATION:
The club will be dark from now until April 7th.
For now, the permits department is saying that we will be able to play on Wednesday, April 8, but will be closed Friday, April 10 for Good Friday holiday. The club will be back to normal scheduled play starting the week of April 13th. With that said, the club is at the mercy of public health, and closures may happen anytime due to the continued spread of the COVID-19. Please check our website www.badinto.com or the BADinTO Badminton Club’s Facebook Groups page for updated information.
We apologize that we were not able to get any hand sanitizers for the club last week as promised. Hopefully we will have some when we get back from the break.

IMPORTANT: If you have tested positive for COVID-19 (or will test positive over the next two weeks), please email Vincent Chan directly to let him know. Vincent can be reached directly at kaktusstudio@sympatico.ca. Your privacy will be 100% protected. Upon return from our closure, we ask that members wash their hands before entering the gym to play. Also wash your hands afterwards for your own protection. If you are feeling under the weather and have not yet been medically diagnosed to be COVID-19 negative, please do not come to the club for the safety of our members. We would like to keep our doors open for as long as we can, in the safest and most responsible manner possible.

QUEEN’S CUP INFORMATION:
After careful consideration and discussions with both the BADinTO Executives and Queen’s Cup Committee members, it saddens me to announce the 2020 Queen’s Cup Badminton Tournament is cancelled due to the threat of COVID-19 contagion.

We did not come to this decision likely, but the health and well-being of all of our members and guests is paramount. We feel that there is a real possibility that COVID-19 cases are going to rise sharply over the next couple of months before things begin to improve. At this point no one can project the timeline of this pandemic, so we could not simply postpone the tournament to a later date. For this reason, we’ve decided to cancel it altogether.

We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out by email at info@badinto.com. This is a very unusual situation and we wish you continued good health.

Stay healthy, reduce risk, wash your hands, and be better, stronger and faster for the 2021 Queen’s Cup Tournament!

Virtual hugs,
Vincent Chan
President, BADinTO LGBTQ Badminton League

Cancellations

We will post any updates to our website & Facebook group.

Urgent: Feb28 club night

ATTENTION MEMBERS:
We have just been informed that there is an issue opening the equipment shed.
A locksmith has been called and we are hoping that it will be opened by 7:15.
