Oireachtas 2017

July 11 – 2017

Hi everyone:

The Oireachtas hotel will open for bookings starting Thursday July 13 at 10am.

The dates for the event are Friday November 10, Saturday November 11, and Sunday November 12, 2017, and the room block has been extended at the preferred rate to accept bookings for a couple of days before and after the event dates for those who want to extend their stay.

The location is the same as in 2016, as is the rate of $160 plus taxes.

Sheraton Toronto Centre
123 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON
416-361-1000

Follow this booking link to make reservations: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/2IK08B

One night will be taken as a non-refundable deposit, and the rate will be honored (subject to inventory) until October 17, after which regular rates will apply and there will not be anything the committee can do about this.

The schedule will remain the same as in previous years, although the order on the days may change around.  Friday will be solo championships for boys and girls u8-u15; Saturday will be solo championships for boys and girls u16 and older plus adult team events; and Sunday will be all remaining team events plus premiere competitions.

Thank you!
