The Adult Afternoon League hosted their annual bonspiel on November 29 with a total of 18 teams coming from as far away as Fort Saskatchewan, Castor, Forestburg, Lacombe, and Stettler. Together with many of our members from the Rose City Curling Club, the teams enjoyed a full day of curling competition followed by a delicious turkey supper provided by Ron Baier. A singing and acting ensemble from “About Time Productions” were also on hand to provide some great entertainment to close out the day.
Many thanks to the organizing committee from the Adult Afternoon League for hosting another successful event! If anyone has any pictures from the day that they would like posted here, please send them to our email at email@example.com.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the Food Bank this week. Your generosity will help others in our community. If you were unable to bring your donations to the curling rink but would still like to donate, please contact the Neighbor Aid Center at 780-679-3220 or drop your donations off at 4524 54th Street, Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Online payments for Credit/Debit are now accepted through the curling.io registration system. In order to pay with a debit card online, it needs to have a Visa or MasterCard logo. This service is available for both league registrations as well as bonspiel entries. The Cash/Cheque payment option is also still available requiring you to make payment in person at the curling club office.
We hope by offering the ability to pay online, our registration process will be easier for both the curlers and our management. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and thank you in advance for your continued patience as we transition into using curling.io.
Did you know that the Rose City Curling Club pays an annual membership fee on your behalf to both Curling Alberta and Curling Canada?
Curling Alberta’s membership rates for the 2018-2019 season are based on population so for a community with a population under 20,000, we pay $80 per sheet of ice. So for 9 sheets of ice, we will need to submit $720 to Curling Alberta.
Curling Canada has an Individual Membership Fee which is $2 per member. Continue reading “Curling Canada and Curling Alberta Membership Fees” →

In September 2017, the World Curling Federation membership voted overwhelmingly to change the Free Guard Zone (FGZ) rule as of the 2018-19 season to the five-rock FGZ rule, a change from the four-rock rule that has been in place in Canada since 2002, and the rest of the WCF since 1993.
