Good Day BC Discgolfers
On March 18th, our BC Government updated Provincial Health Orders regarding COVID-19 and the restrictions that apply to our sport. Under the current restrictions, we can have up to 10 people come together to play an outdoor sport.
For now, and till such time as the PHO, VIA SPORTS and the BCDS advises, the current regulations apply to all BC Discgolf players.
Note that under the current PHO:
The BCDS is working to develop a dynamic schedule to be announced soon; this will include events that we plan on hosting as soon as the PHO is amended and we are back to Phase 3 (Return to Sports) within BC. I am in contact with VIA Sports, and they are continuing to work with government to develop the next phase of return to sport because there are no current plans to return to phase three in the near future. While we recognize that some events/dates may have to be cancelled due to the circumstances, we want to provide some light at the end of the “rainbow” for BC Players, so please stay tuned for announcements from the BCDS.
As we wait for a return to normalcy, I would like to continue to encourage all BC players to embrace and mentor all new players that COVID-19 has brought to the sport. We are an amazing group of diverse Discgolfers, and if we all take a moment and introduce ourselves, club(s) and the BCDS to these new players, it will ensure that they are aware of the basic rules of Discgolf, current COVID regulations and course etiquette, allowing us to nurture and grow the sport through these difficult times.
