GAIA Ultimate - Official Gear Sponsor of the Toronto Ultimate Tournament: This year GAIA has come out to sponsor the TUT tournament with Ultimate gear and clothing.

Fields: As in the past, the TUT tournament will be using a number of locations in the town of Markham (which is directly north of Toronto). Unfortunately we don't have a single location that can accommodate 60+ teams. This year the fields are even more dispersed than usual since there are a couple soccer tournaments as well as our Ultimate tournament. We'll do our best to keep things as clear as possible, but if at some point during the weekend your team gets lost, you should contact John's cell phone at: 416-525-5677.

Parties: The Friday get together will be at the Bedford Ballroom, 232 Bloor Street West, 416-966-4450, which is about 2 blocks east of the Quality Hotel Midtown, 280 Bloor West, 416-968-0010.

The Saturday party will be at 300 Campbell Ave, Suite 216, from 9:00pm onward; which is easy walking distance from the Lansdowne subway station on the Bloor line: from the Lansdowne station, walk four blocks north on Lansdowne to Dupont, then 1 block west on Dupont to Campbell. VC Ultimate will be hosting this party!

SARS: A number of you have asked about SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) which had an outbreak in Toronto. I am no medical professional, but here’s what I can say:

  • On April 30, WHO lifted travel restrictions to Toronto.
    On April 23, WHO recommended against non-essential travel to Toronto.
    See www.who.int/en/
  • The CDC (Center for Disease Control) in the US is recommending caution when traveling to Toronto - see www.cdc.gov/travel/other/sars_can.htm. They mention that SARS has been contained to a small number of hospitals and communities in the Toronto area.
  • Health Canada, www.hc-sc.gc.ca/english/protection/warnings/sars/update39.html, has expressed opposition to the WHO recommendations stating that all SARS cases in Toronto can be traced to a single case, and that the outbreak has been contained. Also, Canadian health officials are monitoring airports for any new cases that might arrive from other affected areas.
  • I phoned Health Ontario (1-866-797-0000) today and learned that there were only four hospitals in Toronto that had SARS cases. The hospital nearest to the TUT fields, Markham-Stouffville, did not treat any SARS patients.
  • I also heard on the news that it has been 20 days since the last reported new case in Toronto. 20 days represents two incubation periods for the disease, so the expectation is that the outbreak has ended.
  • This is the Health Canada advisory saying it's OK to travel to Toronto: www.hc-sc.gc.ca/pphb-dgspsp/tmp-pmv/2003/sarsdomestic_e.html.

Given this information, it is my intention to continue with the TUT tournament. I will keep an eye on the situation in Toronto and will let you know if there is anything negative to report. I will respect the opinion of any team that feels uncomfortable visiting Toronto and will unconditionally issue a refund of full fees if a team drops out due to SARS fears. (But please let me know sooner rather than later so I can revise any schedules.)
