In light of the extension of the current Covid-19 restrictions announced on Thursday, January 21st, the Rose City Curling Club has made the difficult decision to close our doors for the remainder of the season. The decision to do so was not made lightly, with many different factors being considered throughout the process.
Members, please keep an eye on your emails for information over the next week or so. We are still working out some of the details as far as refunds go, so please be patient with us until we get everything sorted out. We will reach out next week with more information, so please await that email before asking individual questions about refunds.
Regardless of the early end to our season, we are still determined to see the “Keep the Lights on Raffle”through to its draw date in March. We would ask that anyone who hasn’t already, arrange a time to pick up ticket books to sell. Barring that, please consider buying a ticket or two yourself. Every bit helps. For more information about the raffle, please clickHERE.
The Board of Directors and RCCC Staff would like to thank our members and supporters for your incredible efforts this season. We are disappointed that we couldn’t get more curling in, but what we did manage to do, we did in a very safe and socially responsible way. We are so proud of all of our members for their efforts this season and we very much look forward to a time when we can get back to the sport we all love!
With the province’s latest public health restrictions announced on December 8th, the Rose City Curling Club is now mandated to remain closed until January 12th, 2021 at which time the restriction may or may not be lifted depending on the pandemic status at that time. The Board will meet again in 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.
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.
Check out the September/October Newsletter to read about all the great programs and leagues Sarah is brewing up for this year at the Rose City Curling Club.

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.
