Government of Manitoba declared a State of Emergency on March 20, and the
immediate closure of all wellness centres offering physical activities, gyms,
fitness centres and athlete clubs and training facilities is mandated.
Therefore, all rhythmic gymnastics clubs are required to close.
TrainingFacilities: The University
of Manitoba will be keeping facilities closed through spring, with all rentals
from now until Tuesday, June 30th to be cancelled. While they continue to
monitor the situation, they hope to be able to resume operations by Thursday,
July 2nd. They will not be rescheduling any bookings at this time.
Events: In addition
to the club training, the Manitoba Provincial Championships and Provincial Gymnaestrada
will be postponed or cancelled. RGM will try to reschedule events to a date
that fits with the changes to the national calendar.

the AGM online.
The Awards ceremony
for the Order of Sports Excellence will be delayed since the Provincial
Championships will not have taken place.
