Chippawa Curling Club
From the Fort Garry Curling Club executive:
As Manitoba Public Health orders did not allow for curling to open up as of yesterday, it is with heavy hearts that your FGCC Executive announces that this 2020-21 curling season is now cancelled. The ice plant was turned off late yesterday. As a board, we had to balance the possibility of opening with our finances and we took this very seriously.
We will have more information regarding personal item pick up as well as refunds in the next week or so.
For those who wish to support their club via a donation of fees or other, we are working on a tax receipt process so that you will be able to claim your donation on income tax. More info to follow.
Your FGCC Executive worked diligently this season to try and follow all public health orders and keep all our members safe. Countless hours were spent by all 8 Executive members these past several months trying our best to get our club open and to provide important recreation and a social outlet for all members.
As members ourselves, we know how important this club is to you the curling community and we hope that next year is a successful one.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your patience, understanding and your support.
We will be in touch with you soon with more information.
2020 - 2021 Curling Season
Welcome back! We hope everyone has stayed safe over the summer. The 2020-2021 curling schedule has been posted, but is subject to change, ... and has already changed.
Return to Play
Curling Canada has developed a set of Return to Play Guidelines for the safe resumption of curling this fall. CurlManitoba has taken these guidelines and created guidelines, Waviers, and Assumption of Risk forms for Manitoba. The Fort Garry Curling Club has adopted and posted these Return to Play Guidelines on their website. As the COVID-19 pandemic is a dynamic, evolving situation, these guidelines are subject to change.
In the event that Fort Garry Curling Club is forced to close mid season, they will refund curling fees pro-rated as follows: 66% in during first 1-2 months, 33% in 3-4 months, 0% during last 5-6 months.
The Spirit of Curling
The game of curling has always been noted for the prevalence of good sportsmanship among its members and the friendly, courteous rivalry that exists on and off the ice. Most courtesies will not be found in the rule books, yet they are practiced by all curlers who understand the true spirit and traditions of the game.
A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly.
A good curler never attempts to distract an opponent or otherwise prevent them from playing their best.
No curler ever deliberately breaks a rule of the game or any of its traditions. But if they should do so inadvertently and be aware of it, they would be the first to divulge the breach.
The spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling and honorable conduct. This spirit should influence both the interpretation and application of the rules of the game and also the conduct of all participants on and off the ice.
Lastly, please enjoy your curling season. Curl well, be a good sportsperson and always have FUN!!!
