OTCA October 2020 Newsletter

COVID UPDATE

The new limit on the number of people allowed to attend an unmonitored social gathering or organized public event is:

  • 10 people at an indoor event or gathering (previous limit of 50); or
  • 25 people at an outdoor event or gathering (previous limit of 100).

Dear members, students and instructors:

OCDSB is focussing on a safe return to school for the students. For this reason CUS has not opened the booking software for renewals.  School facilities remain closed until the end of December 2020.

 

Since we announced at our last newsletter that we would not be able to resume in-class taichi practice Vinh Troung offered on-line taichi practice.  Vinh is sharing a free zoom session on every Monday from 9:30-10:30AM.  The first part (9:30AM-10AM) is general exercise, including tapping exercise and physical exercise.  The second part (10:05AM-10:30AM) is Gigong 1 and towel/rubber band exercise.  If interested, please contact Vinh at vtruong6846@gmail.com for details.

As you are aware, our AGM was not held during COVID shut-down.  Now that the Ontario State of Emergency has ended, we are obliged to hold the AGM no later than October 24th, 2020.  The new limits of 25 people at an outdoor gathering also means that we cannot have quorum at the AGM, however, you can vote by e-mail or send your vote with your proxy (Proxy form attached).  If you wish to have your name nominated for the Board, you may submit it to Pat Lam , the Secretary, at patlam5667@yahoo.ca

OTCA's News (August 2020) // 渥太华太极拳学会简报(八月号)

Dear members and students:

 

COVID-19 Updates

Masks to be worn in Public indoor spaces.

Indoor gatherings are limited to 50 persons.

Physical distancing and hand sanitization continues.

 

At this time OCDSB needs to ensure the safety of the users and staff of their schools and requires unencumbered time to prepare facilities for the start of the upcoming school year.  During this time, OTCA cannot book permits for the 2020-2021 school year.

Based on the above, OTCA executive has made a decision not to re-start OTCA activities and classes until January 2021.  Should the OCDSB decided not to rent their facilities for the coming school year, OTCA will suspend all activities and classes until September 2021.

 

Rest assured that OTCA is working behind the scenes to bring everyone back as soon and as safely as possible.  OTCA will continue with monthly updates and keep the membership informed.

 

During these COVID times many of you may feel lost without your Tai Chi friends.  OTCA encourages you to invite a few friends to go outdoors and practice Tai Chi together while the weather is warm and sunny.  Many of the public parks, such as Dow’s Lake/Commissioner’s Park, have lovely views, space to physically distance and sitting areas to rest.

會員和學生:

COVID-19更新

 

在公共室內場所應戴口罩。

內聚會最多可容納50人。

仍需繼續保持身體距離和勤洗手消毒。

 

我們舆渥太華卡爾頓區學區局 (OCDSB) 作出確認,為確保其學校用戶和教職員工的安全,並需要時間為下一個學年的開始準備設施。 在此期間,OTCA無法預訂2020-2021學年的場地許可證。

 

基於上述情況,OTCA已決定在20211月之前不會開辦OTCA活動和課程。如果OCDSB決定在下一學年不出租其設施,則OTCA將暫停所有活動和課程,直到20219月。

 

OTCA仍然進行規劃工作,希望盡快在安全情况下作出復課安排。  OTCA將繼續進行每月更新報告,向會員提供最新情況。

 

疫情期間,相信你們有些人掛念其他太極朋友。  OTCA鼓勵您在好天氣時邀請幾個朋友到戶外陽光下一起練習太極拳。 許多公園,例如(Dows Lake/Commissioners Park),都享有美麗的景色,廣闊的空間可以實行2米身體距離,以及多個地點可以坐下休息。

Released by OTCA President Frank Lau

2020年6月

至學會會員和學生:


COVID-19更新

學校設施將關閉直至2020年8月31日。
社交聚會僅限於10人或以下。
社交圈可以增加到10人,並建議謹慎使用。
**關閉時間可能會延長**


感謝您讓OTCA知道您對下學年的打算。 根據收到的答复,OTCA已決定為我們的所有活動預訂一個站點–阿爾伯特街的Old Technical HS。


現在您已經知道了位置,如果您想改變自己的意圖,請讓會員協調員Jim Wong知道有關更改決定的信息。


以下是2020年6月13日之前收到的答复摘要。

楊式太極-中級  12
楊式太極-初級   3
陳式小架-中級   2
陳式小架-初級  2
陳式實用太極 -中級  3
陳式實用太極 -初級  3
吳式太極  4
孫式太極 –初級和中級 5
混元太極劍  5

學生總數  39


儘管安大略省已進入重新開放的第二階段,但仍有許多不確定因素。  OTCA不知道社交距離,洗手或戴口罩等政府健康指引將如何影響我們的太極拳活動。 由於這種不確定因素,你們中有些人可能尚未做出返回太極拳的決定。

OTCA繼續為會員提供預先註冊的機會。 請注意,每班最多可容納24名學生(開設課程至少需要6-8名學生)。  OTCA鼓勵會員通知學會其重返會員練習的意向。

OTCA希望能夠在政府許可室內舉行太極拳活動時,第一時間舉行開放日並繼續註冊。 這將會讓那些未決定的人有機會瀏覽各式學會所提供的太極班,並親自與大師/講師交談。

雖然渥市公園現已開放,但OTCA 將不會在Dow's Lake組織夏季太極練習。 在重新開放的第二階段,省級緊急命令仍然有效,禁止在當前家庭之外聚集10人以上。 這適用於所有公眾開放的戶外公園設施。 請注意保持2m距離,定期洗手和避免觸摸臉部的公共衛生安全措施。

安大略省現在允許一個社交圈最多10人(即密友)。 這與最多10人的社交聚會(有身體距離)不同。 這是安大略省政府網頁的鏈接,其中包含有關如何創建社交圈的信息:https://www.ontario.ca/page/create-social-circle-during-covid-19。 您應該只參與一組社交圈。

OTCA希望每個人都身體健康,以及無論在家裡還是在其他地方繼續練習太極。


期望很快見到各位,

OTCA
