Due to the Covid Pandemic
It is with disappointment that the Gyro Club of Winnipeg will have to cancel hosting the planned 2021 Gyro international & District-VII convention. Our deadline that we expressed is May 10th. There are three criteria items that the hosting committee identified that need to be positive on or before the deadline date.
1) Winnipeg indoor gathering limit size must be at a minimum of 100 people. With the third wave still building in Manitoba and current restrictions in place, this item will not be positive by the deadline date.
2) The Canada /United States international border must be fully open (land & air) to bi-directional leisure travel. The news out of Ottawa & Washington yesterday was that the border will remain closed to all but essential travel for at least another 30 days. Which puts it past our deadline. Thus this item is not positive.
3) Pending items 1 & 2 above being positive a survey was to be sent out to all Gyros asking for positive commitment to travel and attend the convention. The number needed to make the convention work was 100. This number of Gyros and partners would need to commit to travelling dispite a pandemic for this to be positive.
With three negative results, we are unfortunately cancelling teh 2021 Gyro International & District-VII Convention. Anyone who has booked their hotel room, we ask that you contact the hotel and cancell your reservation.
