The CIG is proud to announce the first ever online National Tournament! Teams from across the country will compete in three pools for national gold! The tournament will take place over three nights. Some teams are able to meet in person and will be able to compete against other teams that are able to meet in person. Some teams are only able to meet online and they will be competing against other teams that can meet online! It’s going to be amazing to see what teams have done this year!
This Eventbrite link will go LIVE at 7pm EST on Friday April 9th! https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/148376236317
The three shows represent the top five teams in each pool and are as follows:
May 6th – Top 5 Junior teams that can meet in person safely
May 7th – Top 5 teams meeting entirely online
May 8th – Top 5 Senior teams that can meet in person safely
The link for the show you want to watch will be sent to you at 7pm EST on the given date, but can be watched later (or watched again!)
You’ll get to watch the show from the comfort of your own home! It’ll be just like Nationals in Ottawa only you get to wear your PJs!
Tickets will be $14 and 100% of the proceeds will go back into CIG programming and operations. You may also choose to buy a ticket “by donation” this option is set up for people who want to donate more than $14 to the organization or for whom the ticket price is a barrier.
As part of the ticket launch we have an exciting raffle to offer! Anyone who buys their tickets between 7pm EST on Friday April 9th and 7am EST on Monday April 12th will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win one of THREE $50 Skip the Dishes gift cards! (That way you can order in while you enjoy the show!)
The round robin tournament is happening as we speak! Over 60 teams across all three pools are being judged right now and on April 23rd the top five in each pool will be announced- these top fives teams in each pool will resubmit another round of videos which will be showcased during the National Tournament! Stay tuned for more details.
We will have more exciting announcements over the coming weeks- so follow along with us on the road to Nationals 2021!
This year we are looking for alumni, supporters, volunteers, and general lovers of then CIG to submit videos of support which will be edited into the broadcast! If you’re interested in submitting a video- fill out this short form and someone from the national office will be in touch on April 19th!
