Dear Bill,

Due to the financial situation in Torino and the Piedmont Region, the
International Masters Games Association has decided to move the event from
Sestriere, Italy to Quebec City, Canada.

This announcement was made during a press conference in Quebec City on
Tuesday 4th of February. Jens V. Holm, CEO of IMGA together with M. Sylvain
Légaré, Member of the Executive Committee in charge of sports for the City
of Quebec, announced that the 2nd edition of the Winter World Masters Games
2015.

The Games will take place during the Winter Carnaval from January 31st to
February 8 th, 2015.

The following sports will be on the program : Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country
Skiing, long track Speed Skating, Ice Hockey, Curling, Winter Triathlon,
Snow Shoeing and Climbing.

As you can see, unfortunately biathlon will not be on the program of the
Games, due to very strict Canadian Laws to import weapons into Canada when
it comes to amateur sport.

The website will be launched in the next few months. More information about
the venues, and opening of registration will follow shortly.
Please don't hesitate to get back to me if you have any further questions.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Best regards,

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your email. There have been delays due to financial issues in
Italy and the Piedmont Region. We are currently trying to see if we could
move the event. Therefore, I'll ask you to be patient for a few more weeks,
as we should have this issue solved by mid-February. By that date, we will
be able to give you the dates of the event.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
Samantha
