Afternoon Adult League enjoys another successful bonspiel

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 rccc@cable-lynx.net.

Online payments now available

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.

Five-rock Free Guard Zone

No club is obligated to play under the new rule but if any club members enter any playdown that leads to a Curling Canada-operated championship, the five-rock rule will be in effect starting this season.
