HCC Directors have made a bold decision to go ahead with the 2021-2022 Curling Season. We need 48 members to sign up (that means submit your completed Registration Form and payment) by October 1st for us to move ahead! Our Season is 15 weeks in length, October 22 – December 10, 2021 + January 21 – March 4, 2022. There is no Fall nor Winter Draw this year….one season all year! Can only play part of it? Consider sharing a spot with another curler.
Membership will be capped at 48 (not including Spares) and will increase after that by groups of 8 to our maximum of 64 members this year. Your completed Registration Form may be mailed, scanned and emailed, or dropped off to Kate Head or Mary Kent. $200 Membership Fee may be a cheque payable to HCC dated 1 October 2021 mailed or dropped off to Kate or Mary, cash given in person to Kate or Glenn Rowell, or e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org! We are so excited to be able to offer e-transfer this year!
Members MUST show proof of double-vaccinations and respectfully follow all other safety (falls, footwear) and Covid-related protocols. These latter protocols are ever-changing (as you know) and we will forward these to our members prior to opening night and update as needed.
With capacity limits pre-established by the County and Health Unit, MEMBERS ONLY are permitted to enjoy our “Club House” (McSorley Room) after their games. We have caps on numbers permitted. Sorry, no visitors or drop ins to watch the exciting on-ice action at this time.
Spares MUST complete Registration Forms BEFORE October 15th. A spare list will be published and those on that list will also need to provide proof of a 2nd vaccination.
We will have two draws: 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to your game, please. The Bar will open to curlers after their games only. More information about our after game social time in a future email.
We have the opportunity to welcome several new members to our HCC! Some are experienced curlers and others are “new to the sport” and an on-ice introduction will take place that first night.
If you have borrowed Club equipment (e.g. brooms, sliders, grippers, sticks) in previous years, this year we will loan our limited supply on a season basis. You may be required to pay a refundable deposit for the use of such. We will also share information about where you may purchase your own curling equipment.
Hope you are as excited as we are to start curling again!
