January Practice Cancellations

Club bookings will be cancelled until Feb 7th. Sorry for getting everyone's hopes up. There was a discrepancy between when the UBC email saying all bookings would be cancelled until the 18th, clubs receiving January schedules, and time between the official statement which seemed like a tentative green light.

Hopefully we'll see you in February (fingers crossed).
