### COVID-19 UPDATE ###

I trust this message finds both you and your families well, as we now all face ever challenging times within our new normals of social and physical distancing, and self-isolation.

It is with sincere regret that I must inform you of our Capture Oakville Planning Committee's decision to cancel the 14th Edition of Capture Oakville Photography Competition.

The Town of Oakville facilities are closed to the public until further notice.  While the Town plans to re-open the Queen Elizabeth Park Cultural and Community Centre [QEPCCC] facility as of 6 April 2020, there is no guarantee that this date is firm, or that things will return to normal.

The Committee has therefore decided that it is in the best interest of both our Members, the staff of QEPCCC, our Volunteer partners, Sponsors, and the public, that we do not host any event that has large numbers of people gathering in one location (as we have typically had as many as 200 people in attendance at our Opening Exhibition Night and Gala event), and therefore have cancelled our event.

We realize that many of our Member photographers have gone to much time and expense to enter and participate in our 14th Competition.  While nothing has been confirmed, the Committee is currently discussing a number of options for hosting a scaled-down version of our event at a later date in 2020.

I trust that the above decisions meet with your approval.  If you have any questions, please feel free to correspond with me directly.

Many thanks for your ongoing support of our Committee, and our Capture Oakville Event.  Be Safe!

Cheers,
Bernie
