ATLANTIC CHALLENGE CANCELLED

The Restigouche Comets deeply regrets to inform you that we must cancel our meet scheduled for Feb 25-26. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide accomodations for our event. We have tried endlessly to come up with a solution since November,
when we learned that the Marianne Limpert Swimming meet was being held the same weekend; unfortunately, our area is not equipped to accommodate two large event at the same time. With the exception of a few B&B and the hostel, all hotels and motels within a 100km radius are completely sold out for that weekend. We tried changing dates and changing venues but all our efforts were unsuccessful.

Thank you to everyone who tried to help us out during the last few months. We also appreciate all the effort that each club put into promoting our meet this year. We looked forward to welcoming skaters from Atlantic Canada, Quebec, and even Ontario this year.

We will work with the city and the recreation department to improve communication to prevent future scheduling conflicts. We’ll try again next year. As they say: Three times a charm!

Sincerely,

The Restigouche Comets

DÉFI ATLANTIQUE ANNULÉ

Les comètes du Restigouche regrettent profondément de vous informer que nous devons annuler notre compétition prévue pour le 25 et 26 février. Malheureusement, nous ne sommes pas en mesure de fournir des logements pour notre événement. Nous avons essayé sans fin de trouver une solution depuis novembre, quand nous avons appris que la compétition de natation Marianne Limpert se tenait la même fin de semaine; malheureusement, notre région n’est pas équipée pour accueillir deux grands événements en même temps. À l’exception de quelques chambres d’hôtes et l’auberge, tous les hôtels et motels dans un rayon de 100 km sont complètement épuisés pour ce week-end. Nous avons essayé de changer nos dates et l’aréna, mais tous nos efforts ont échoué.

Merci à tous ceux qui ont essayé de nous aider au cours des derniers mois. Nous apprécions également tous les efforts que chaque club a faits pour promouvoir notre compétition cette année. Nous avions hâte d’accueillir des patineurs de l’atlantique,
du Québec et même de l’Ontario cette année.

Nous travaillerons avec la ville et le service des loisirs afin d’améliorer la communication afin d’éviter de futurs conflits d’horaires.
Nous nous essayerons encore l’année prochaine.

Sincèrement, Les Comètes du Restigouche
