Listowel Curling Club Newsletter 2021-2022


Manager’s Remarks


We would like to invite all curlers back to our club again after a tough year of Covid 19 and an empty curling club. We plan on starting the curling season on Monday, October 25th, 2021.


I would like to thank all donors and the people that supported our on line auction by buying the donation prizes. The result of all the efforts we did in the last year produced a $ 20,000 income which kept our club solvent. The club over the last year spent $27,000 in heating , taxes, insurance , hydro, phone, security, inspections and many other things that happen regardless if you are open or not. We would have needed to take out a loan without the fundraising.


The curling club is having the annual AGM on Tuesday October 5th starting at 7 pm. We will host 15 attendees at the club and people can email our club for a link to a live video of the meeting.


We will be following Provincial and Huron Perth Public Health rules for play. We will be able to have 8 players on each ice and seating will be limited to four to six at a table with all 32 players being able to get served. All players and staff will need to be double vaccinated and contact tracing is in effect. Proof of vaccination will be required with photo ID the first time in.

We are asking that you be changed to play prior as we have limited capacity when changing. Use the lockers for shoes and picking up the broom.


We are having two bartenders to help serve and clean the areas after each game and all public touch points, washrooms door handles rock handles etc. We will be looking for volunteers to run the Leagues and the various jobs around the club. Bonspiels are being looked at in a lesser number but we have not had the regulations finalized yet.


We will post a plan on our web site in the next couple of weeks. As of now youth under 18 do need not to show vaccination proof. Junior curling will be held this year but may require masks to be worn.


If you pay before October 1st 2021 you can still pay the old fees. Registration forms are to be returned by October 11th 2021 along with full payment. You can pay by cash, cheque, Visa, E-Transfer or Debit. You can register on line at our website @ www.listowelcurlingclub.com.


We are offering again this year having the option to prepay the 50/50 draw for the year, instead of having to fill out the sheet each week. Help support the club on this fund raiser and don’t miss a week by taking advantage of the prepay program. The first draw will be November 3rd and last March 23rd . There will 20 draws and prepaying would be 40 dollars. We will be asking all curlers that curl in a competition to register on line. Go to the OCA website and follow the guidelines to register. Website: http://www.ontcurl.com/ and go to “enter a competition”.


We continue to update our website and encourage you to use it for registration, news, scores and game times. The address is www.listowelcurlingclub.com and we would like your feedback on it. We are looking forward to an exciting year and we encourage all members to bring friends out and try our sport.


Volunteers

Volunteering at the club is a great way to socialize, meet new people, have fun and support the Club. Thanks to everyone who made the 2019 – 2020 curling season a success. Volunteer duties will be posted on the Communication Board. Please sign up by December 1st for a duty or you have the option of paying $100 to be exempt from a duty.

We are looking forward to seeing all the members back and new people to the club.
