Dear IGR Community and Friends,  

We were looking forward and were so excited to host you all for the Bingham Cup 2020 this August. However, due to the unfolding of the COVID-19 global pandemic and the impacts it is having around the world, your Bingham Cup Ottawa 2020 Organizing Committee as well as the IGR Trustees have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this year’s Bingham Cup Ottawa and reschedule the tournament for August 2022. You will find more detail, including reasoning and refunds, by reading the March 28 press release.

Each and every one of us in the community is having to deal with different types of grief because of this pandemic. We know you are hurting - we are too. We must all do our part in order to get past this safely and, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for understanding that this is the best way forward. In the meantime, hang tight, stay home, stay safe and check in on your community and loved ones. We will see each other soon.

With you always,
