Although it might not come as a surprise, this will confirm that the Whistler Regional Bridge Tournament, scheduled for Nov 1-7, has been officially cancelled, as of today, October 4.

As District 19’s president, Chris Cookson, explained in an emailed letter to all members:

“We had hoped to be able to return to Regionals in the District in 2021, but sadly that is not to be. We would be remiss in not acknowledging our hotel partner, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler who have worked very closely with the District in trying to run a safe and fun event. We look forward to returning to Whistler in the future. The work done by original chair Bruce Busby and his team, current chair Marv Norden, and the District Tournament Committee are also deeply appreciated. Tournament Director Matt Koltnow has worked closely with the District and his counsel has helped guide us through these difficult times. “
