Accommodations

BCSSA has informed us that most of the wildfire evacuees, firefighters and support crews have now left Kamloops. As a result, quite of number of hotels rooms have become available. The City of Kamloops is looking forward to welcoming BCSSA athletes for the Provincial Championships. Anyone who has not booked a room should now be able to easily find accommodation. A Cudas family informed the executive team last night hat there are hotel rooms available at the Coast Hotel as well.
