Hello all returning and new members and welcome to a new curling season at the Almonte Curling Club(ACC), after a year with no curling I am very excited to get this new season going, and from our membership numbers you folks are also very excited to get the new season started.
For you new members I know that you will enjoy your season at the ACC, we are a very friendly club and will make sure you have an opportunity to be involved in any of our activities.
With all members double vaccinated, we have decided to curl as we did in 2019, with no restrictions on the ice. If individuals decide to curl with masks on that decision will be respected.
It’s fantastic to see that all of our leagues are full especially our Tuesday Mixed, Day curling and the Learn 2 Curl programs.
During this season we do have COVID-19 protocols in place to help protect each other, but as everywhere else its up to all of us to make sure these protocols work. These protocols can be found on the website and on each table, it is important to still be vigilant these days to our ensure that our curling season continues to completion.
As you can appreciate the ACC Executive has put in a lot of hard work over the summer to ensure we have the correct protocols in place and adapt these protocols in these ever changing times, not just COVID-19 issues, but also putting together the programs we have, to make sure that every curling skill level is addressed … and as President I want to thank everyone on the board for their hard work in making this season a success.
In closing I want to say thank you to all of the members for signing up this year, without you there would be no curling season, in these ever changing times we live in I would like you to know that curling at the ACC will be as normal as possible with the same good curling, good friends new and old, and good laughs.
We are the ACC
