KCC Shut Down as of Feb 16

Due to the latest PHO extension prohibiting adult team sports, the KCC Board recently moved to:
–  shut down the season effective last Tuesday Feb 16th,
–  refund 75% of all League and Afternoon dues, and
–  not refund the $20 memberships or $15 locker fees

PLEASE email after FEB 28th if you are expecting a refund but haven’t heard from us by then.

PLEASE return any club equipment that you borrowed, or you can bring in your 10-pack card for a refund during the following times:

Sat, Feb 20:  1 – 3 pm
Tue, Feb 23:  5:30 – 7 pm
Fri, Feb 26:  1 – 3 pm

Bar cards will be carried over to next season by default, but the unused portion can also be refunded this year (normally bar cards are non-refundable).  Please let us know if you want that.

Of course, this is a sad but not surprising end to our season.

However, we got more curling in than a lot of clubs, and the decision to stay open this long meant our junior curlers got in their usual 12 sessions instead of just 4.

The 1 on 1 format also went over surprisingly well, running from Jan 18th to Feb 13th:  11 members rented the ice 35 times, which brought in $490 to the club.  It’s definitely worth doing again even after COVID, as it’s great for people who want to work on their game without the team component and/or if they have difficulty sweeping.

Have a great spring and summer everyone, and cross your fingers that we can be back on the ice again this fall.
