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 kaslocurling@gmail.com 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.

Games and drop-in sessions cancelled

All games, drop-in sessions and practice ice are cancelled effective immediately per the recent PHO, which explicitly includes curling as a restricted activity:

We’ll let you know if things change.

Mask changes for members

Hello fellow curlers and club members,

This is the latest update regarding curling under CoVid conditions.

The rule making Masks Mandatory while on the ice has been lifted. The wearing of masks is strongly recommended when on the ice.

Masks are still mandatory in all other areas of the club. They are excused only when eating or drinking, seated at a table in the lounge. Social distancing is of prime importance both on and off the ice and remember to sanitize or wash your hands often. All the other rules previously put in place still apply.

Please remember to be kind to each other and mindful of the fact that these times are difficult for us all. In addition to CoVid we all have personal issues/hardships to deal with and a little kindness goes a long way.
