Fall Update – November 26, 2021

Season Startup Delayed

In preparations for starting up the ice plant on Sept 29th, we were investigating a brine leak.   

The problem was found at the chiller and the bad news is that it is not repairable and the chiller must be replaced.  This is not an off the shelf item, so our startup will be delayed.   

With all the information available to us, your Board has made the decision to go forward with the replacement and target start of play in early December.   The season will be extended well into April to compensate.   We will keep you posted on progress. 

To improve the health and safety of members, we have enhanced the ventilation and air cleanliness at the club, installed touchless sanitizer, soap and towel dispensers throughout, a new dishwasher ready to go, and quotes are in on some other improvements.   A new point of sale system has been installed in the bar.   We ran a successful Street Curling event that raised our profile and generated some new member leads.    We have 2 new signage sponsors.    A new website was launched.    We are on track with completing all the COVID-19 signage, procedures and a Safety Plan documented (per government regulations).   

For all these reasons I am optimistic about this season.   Although delayed, I am still looking forward to a season of curling at Prescott Curling Club.

Registration for the season is open and the Board encourages you to register soon, it does help with our program planning.  The AGM is still planned for October 6th, 6pm at the Kinsmen Amphitheatre.  I hope to see you there.

Yours in curling,

Gary

A big thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for recognizing the value we bring to the community and selecting us as one of the successful grant applicants among many that were submitted. Over the summer we have been using the grant to rebuild and recover from impacts of COVID-19 by purchasing and installing touchless appliances, air purifiers, and UV air cleaners to create a safe and healthy environment for our volunteers and members.

Congratulations to the other grant recipients in the Leeds and Grenville area.

Volunteers

Volunteering is the lifeblood of this club. Many individuals contribute hours without whose efforts we simply could not operate the facility. Volunteering at the club helps keep draw curling and bonspiels more affordable. Every adult member is encouraged to contribute to the work that is needed at the club, either in maintenance of the facility or at the various club events. We try to organize our needs to minimize wasted time and as always, many hands make light work.

A huge thank you to all our volunteering members.
