Letter from President

September 18th, 2020

Dear Members,

I am writing to you today with a few updates as we progress toward the start of the season.

Registration: Thank you to those who have already submitted their teams. Each league is filling up and it’s important to submit your team now to reserve your spot. Please don’t wait for the Open House. The ladder coordinators will be creating schedules soon and you need to be included! The registration form is attached.

Open house reminder: Friday, September 25, 6:00pm (planned to be outside) – please remember your masks.

Waiver: In past communication, I mentioned the Acknowledgement of Risk waiver forms that were created by Curling Canada and Curling Quebec. In order to curl this year, you must return your signed waiver prior to your first game. Those waivers confirm the important understanding between you and the club when it comes to COVID-19, and they are attached for your review and signature. Please review, sign and return the waiver to Yolanda (mail@glenmorecurling.com) anytime between now and Tuesday, October 13.

One-sweeper video: Curling Canada created a poster showing the safe positions of players using the 1-sweeper method. Those posters are in the club, but to show you how this works in real time, please view the following video: https://youtu.be/jCnP5Pn06FU

Clinics: Allison will be giving beginner and intermediate curling clinics: Save the dates! Beginner: Sep. 30, Oct. 1 / Intermediate Oct. 7, 8. If interested, please register with Yolanda (mail@glenmorecurling.com).

Spares Membership: For those who may not want to commit to a full season but who still want to keep sliding, we are excited to offer a Spares Membership! Look for that in the attached fee schedule.

Lastly, this is a year with many new challenges and as usual, Glenmore members are always willing to help out. I’d like to thank the following members for their contributions:

  • Grant for trimming some problematic trees in the parking lot.
  • Nath and Tim for organizing the Google Meets AGM online platform.
  • Yolanda for assisting with the PPE supplies and setting up the lounge for the AGM.
  • Allison, Ann-Lise, Hratch, Brendan and Rob for their work to date on the Health & Safety Committee.
  • Maria for assisting with translation, most notably the detailed Return to Curling guide.
  • Randy for identifying and fixing a plumbing leak in the wall, dehumidifying and setting up the locker rooms and frequent Mr. Fix-it trips to the club on short notice.
  • Allison, Brendan, Rob and Jen for setting up the lounge with distancing so that we can have drinks after our games.
  • Larry and Yolanda for applying for the CEBA government grant to help the club’s finances.
  • Mirko for getting some new carpet for the back of the shed, since sheets A and C will start from the scoreboard.
  • And, all members and staff for your feedback, opinions, patience and diligence regarding COVID-19!

I’m sorry if I missed anyone, and if you think someone deserves a shout out for a contribution, please email me at brad.rogers@rchagen.com to include in my next update.

Stay Safe!
Brad Rogers

 

A Little History

The Glenmore Curling Club opened its doors in 1961. It was originally named the Roxboro Curling Club, but the name was changed just before the opening.

Through a combination of debentures sold to the founding members and a floating loan from the bank, sufficient funds were raised to purchase a very large parcel of land. In 1962, the pool was dug, and the club opened for its first full season in 1963.

Open & Mixed Ladders Schedules for Week of February 14

Dear members,

Effective Monday, February 14, we are restarting our leagues. The calendar still needs to be finalized, therefore a full schedule is NOT yet available for the Open Ladder and Mixed Ladder. Please find the schedule for the week of February 14th below:

Please also take note of these details in effect during the gradual deconfinement measures:

  1. The usual passport, mask and hand sanitary measures apply – even if your passport was already scanned, please remember to always have your passport with you in case of an inspection;
  2. Locker rooms are limited to 50% capacity – please change quickly to allow time for your colleagues to use the locker rooms;
  3. The bar remains closed until Feb. 28, and since our lounge is governed by a bar licence, the lounge is also closed until then, therefore please leave the club directly after your game;
