We have now received clarification from the various government agencies and levels, via Curl BC, that regular league play will not be impacted by the latest round of COVID-19 protocols introduced in the Provincial Health Orders of December 17 and 22.
League play will resume as scheduled on Monday January 3.
As we operate under a “Club” Liquor License, the Stone’s Throw lounge *will* be open, however we must restrict patrons to one party per table (in effect, that means one team), with a maximum of six seats, and seats will be 2 metres apart between tables.
Bonspiels are not allowed until February 1 at the earliest. The Jack Anderson, scheduled for January 19-23 has been postponed – new dates are pending. We expect announcements concerning our Club bonspiels: the Ladies, Men’s and Sooo Long, all happening in March, to be forthcoming soon.
With the Esquimalt Curling Club shutting down to allow that facility to host a vaccination centre, the second half of our year promises to be busier than the first, as we may be able to welcome curlers from Esquimalt into our leagues – we are working on the logistics of this as we speak, and will have announcements as to availability and times within the next several days.
Thanks to everyone for a successful first half of the year, and have a happy holiday until January!
