Due to a fire yesterday evening, September 24, there is currently no electrical power in either the Currie Gymnasium or the Tomlinson Fieldhouse. These buildings are therefore closed until power is fully restored. Until then, all classes and other activities scheduled for these facilities are cancelled. We anticipate a resumption of electricity to these buildings in the next day or two. Please monitor this space and we will update it as new information becomes available.
