Give thanks for all of the opportunities
that even our struggles bring
Although members were only able to get on the ice for about a month this season, the joy at being back to playing a beloved sport was obvious. The Board of Directors and Staff at the Rose City Curling Club are grateful to our members and the very supportive community in which we live for the assistance given to us during this very challenging year. There may not have been much activity at the Club but our latest newsletter recaps a few notable mentions.
We close this season on a somber note as we remember Vic Luckwell, our oldest curling member for the past several years. The Rose City Curling Club would like to extend its condolences to Vic’s family and invite you to click HERE to read the 2019 news article we published about Vic and his curling highlights. Thank you Vic for being a dedicated club member, we will miss you!
Sarah is already planning for next season and will update members as necessary throughout the summer. As always, if anyone needs to contact Sarah in the off season, please leave a phone message at 780-672-4152 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Sarah will get back to you. Here’s hoping everyone stays healthy and we wish you all a good summer! See you in the fall.

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.
