To all who support the CBA (BC) Benevolent Society and the Vancouver Battle and Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands.

We continue to monitor the evolving news around COVID-19, taking direction from the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada and the BC Provincial Health Officer.

We want to be cautious and proactive, and implement measures to protect our bands, and their fans.

Accordingly, the Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands, scheduled for April 1, 2020 and the Vancouver Battle of the Bar Bands, scheduled for May 29, 2020, will not take place on those dates.

We intend to monitor this situation and these events may be rescheduled. We thank you for your support and cooperation as we implement these extraordinary measures. We are hopeful that this pandemic will subside quickly, without anyone in our Battle of the Bar Band family being seriously affected.

Rock on brothers and sisters.

David Hay

President, CBA(BC) Benevolent Society
