As the pandemic continues on, the province’s new public health restrictions announced on November 24th impacts all curling clubs across Alberta. That means the Rose City Curling Club (RCCC) is now mandated to remain closed until December 15th at which time the restriction may or may not be lifted depending on the pandemic status at that time. The RCCC Board of Directors have met to discuss our options and we believe it is in the best interest of the club to stay closed for the remainder of 2020. The Board will meet again by the beginning of January 2021 to discuss a future reopening date.
Curling Alberta will continue to monitor the government restrictions, and will work with all curling clubs across the province to provide support and direction in future reopening decisions.
We will try to provide our membership with any new information as it happens so please continue to check this website, your email and/or our social media platforms to stay up to date. As always, Sarah is more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have so don’t hesitate to give her a call or send an email. She will be checking both phone and email messages on a regular basis while the club is closed.
Our staff and the RCCC Board of Directors wishes each of you a safe and healthy holiday season!
Stop by the Club on November 4th or 5th from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm to view the changes to the main floor, lounge and ice shell, and to talk to Sarah about the new protocols. We want everyone to feel comfortable coming to the Club before their first curling game. This is your opportunity to look around, and ask questions.

VOLUNTEERS – WE NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER!
And while you’re at it, talk to Sarah about volunteering at the club this season. To accommodate health and safety guidelines that are outlined in our Return to Play document, we have new volunteer opportunities for members to choose from. We will absolutely need everyone on board to help us stay safe while we continue to curl during the pandemic.
It’s official! The motion to reopen the Rose City Curling Club by November 2nd was approved by the Board of Directors on September 21st. We are looking forward to seeing everyone back from last year and perhaps even a few new faces. A warm welcome also to any individuals who were members in the past and are looking for some recreation over the upcoming winter months in lieu of a trip to a warmer climate. Sarah has created a few new curling options this season so check it out on our Curling IO webpage. There’s sure to be a curling opportunity waiting for everyone so be sure to register by October 31st! Continue reading “Curling returns to RCCC in November”→
