AGM on Wed, Sep 29 at 7 pm

The Kaslo Curling Club is a registered non-profit society, and our AGM will be on

Wednesday, September 29 at 7 pm at the club.

Vaccination is not required to attend this event, but masks are required in the building with exemptions for:

• People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one
• People who cannot remove a mask on their own
• Children under the age of 12
• People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person’s hearing impairment

These restrictions can be found at: Interior Health Provincial and Regional Restrictions

Members are always welcome at the AGM to learn more about the club “behind the scenes”, and/or run for a position on the Board.

Your current Board is:

• Darryl Slobodian
• Mark Dobroski
• Kathy Alexanders
• Carlos Jordan
• Rita Rasmussen

All Board positions are 1 year terms ending at the AGM.

The ice may also be available that night for you to get some slides in (happy dance!), but we’ll confirm that as we get closer to the date.

Curling and COVID this season

Update (Sep 15): A Curl BC Sep 13 announcement has changed the youth exemption age from under 12 to under 22.

The Kaslo Curling Club will be following Curl BC’s guidelines again this season with regards to COVID and Provincial Health Orders (PHO).

The good news is that it looks like we can have fairly normal play this year with no masks, two sweepers, and sweeping the opposing team’s rocks behind the T-line.  The Curl BC guidelines are here:

Aug 24: https://www.curlbc.ca/curl-bc-statement-on-b-c-s-new-proof-of-vaccination-order/

Sep 13: https://www.curlbc.ca/curl-bcs-statement-on-youth-sports-health-order/

However, the current PHO requires everyone entering the building to show proof of having been vaccinated:  one shot as of Sep 13 and full vaccination as of Oct 24.

Please remember that you’re not fully vaccinated until 7 days after your second shot.  Only children under 12 children and youth under 22 years old are exempt, and the vaccination requirement is in effect until at least Jan 31, 2022.

Masks are still required in the building except on the ice.  Masks can be removed in the lounge while eating or drinking.

More info will be coming your way soon regarding the start of the season, the AGM, and equipment orders.  The ice plant has been started up, so curling is just around the corner!

Lorry Cann 1931-2021

August 13, 2021 update:

Donations in Lorry’s name can be made via Interac e-Transfer (no security question needed) to kaslocurling@gmail.com. Thank you so much to those who have asked about this!

Lorry at our Kaslo 125 Open House in 2018

The Kaslo Curling Club was saddened to hear of the passing of Lorry Cann, a lifetime club member, on July 22, 2021.

Lorry and his wife Rose, also a lifetime club member, were indispensable at the club for decades. Lorry dedicated several years to bringing along the next generation of curlers, and his name is on many of the trophies that line the club walls.

Even after Lorry stopped curling (and that wasn’t too long ago!), he and Rose would drop by the lounge to watch the occasional Friday night game, and they were sure to check out the Kaslo Bonspiel every January. It was always a joy to talk curling strategy with him, and his enthusiasm for the sport knew no bounds.

The Kaslo Curling Club owes a great debt to Lorry Cann for keeping the spirit of curling alive and strong in Kaslo for many years, and he will be missed.
