Dear Member,

With the increasing Covid numbers across Canada, and the introduction of the new Omicron variant, the Canadian 5 Pin Bowlers’ Association is increasing restrictions for all participants in national events. The health and safety of all participants is the top priority of the Canadian 5 Pin Bowlers’ Association (C5PBA) and therefore, necessitates the requirement of full vaccination to reduce risk of transmission and exposure.

Therefore, this letter/email is to inform you of the implementation of the following:

C5PBA Proof of Vaccination

Effective January 15, 2022, all Affected Persons are required to be Fully Vaccinated (i.e., including the 14-day period after receiving their completed dose) before participating in any C5PBA national program or event. All Affected Persons must present proof of vaccination and valid identification, as evidence that they have received the completed series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine.

For the 2022 Youth Challenge being held Calgary, all participants must provide evidence of full vaccination to the Provincial 5 Pin Bowlers’ Association by January 30, 2022. If you don’t meet this deadline, you will not be allowed to participate until you are able to provide proof of full vaccination (second dose plus 14 days for it to take effect).

In alignment with “C5PBA Proof of Vaccine Policy”, C5PBA will support exemptions with proof of valid medical contraindication for COVID-19 vaccinations. Any Affected Person who is granted medical exemption through Valid Medical Contraindication for COVID-19 vaccinations must show proof to their Provincial/Territorial Association with the approved documentation from a Physician or Nurse Practitioner.

C5PBA reserves the right to have exemption medical documentation reviewed by the C5PBA Executive Director to make appropriate inquiries to verify the authenticity of any claim for exemption. Any Affected Person who is granted a medical exemption must follow safety protocols outlined by public health.

Note: Spectators at National Championships will be subject to the rules of the event. Stay Safe,

Len Isleifson – President, C5PBA
