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” →
