Welcome to the 2020 Sports Weekend!
Notes re 2020: As everyone is aware, protocols and guidelines related to COVID-19 are in place this year and it is necessary for AHCA to take these into account in regard to our annual Sports Weekend. As a result, we recognize that it is not feasible to hold the Water Sports Events at the Main Dock, or the Land Sports Events at the Ball Park this year. We all hope that things will be back to normal next year. Meantime, a limited set of events are feasible. They can be run while respecting the COVID-19 guidelines and they are set out below.
