Hopefully, there will be some compensation... but there isn't a lot of money in curling to give financial compensation.

Not a good situation.


Compensation from where/whom. Surely you are not suggesting govts/taxpayers step up and compensate teams/federations. Let the WCF and CC dig themselves out of there financial mess.

I would think that the flights have been booked

Can generally cancelrooms up to 24 hrs in advance - bookers and hotel likely aware of the emergency

Not a line up for rooms

Teams prob hoping airlines cancel the flights or announce an exchange forfuture credit

im sure everyone is hoping for the best but things arent going to be okay or good enough in 3 weeks to hold the event.

this is like the indian wells/miami situation in tennis. indian wells was cancelled and miami was trying to be optimistic but not even a week later the cancellation became official.

i just dont know how they can even consider holding the evnt. dont put these teams through that. tell them now

Everybody's retirement plan suffered a painful meltdown over the last 10 days or so. However, as in 1987, 2002 and 2008, the financial markets will recover in due course and go on to new heights.

The critical thing to keep in mind during these "periods of turmoil" is to stay the course Unless you are within 3 - 5 years of retirement.

I was loud yesterday as I talked to a friend at the checkout of our Local Coop, jammed with hoarders of all ages, colours and sizes.
"Look at all the toilet paper. DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THE VIRUS IS GOING TO FLY OUT OF THEIR ASSES?"
Honestly, I just don't care anymore.
Human beings are morons.
