COVID-19 Re-opening

The Forest Curling and Social Club will be following Provincial, Lambton Health Unit, Lambton Bluewater, and Ontario Curling Association (CurlON) COVID-19 recommendations for the 2020/2021 season.

October 1, 2020

At the Board Meeting this afternoon, we decided to go forward with our plans for the 20/21 Season. Mac will be starting the process of getting the ice in and the Club ready for Jitney and League play starting Monday, November 2nd. We were asked about the possibility of having the ice available for practice. We are looking at Saturday (October 31st) and Sunday (November 1st) being the only days available prior to the season’s start. We will set-up a system by which those wanting to get on the ice will have an appointed day, time and opportunity to do so.

Over the next four weeks, we will be trying to get everything within the Club in place to allow for the best possible experience for all curlers. There may/will be changes as to how we do things. We ask you to be patient and realize that we are trying to make FCSC a safe place for you to enjoy the game of curling and catch-up with your friends and other curlers. If you have indicated an interest in helping on your form, we will be in contact.

Keep an eye on your email and/or check the website https://www.forestcurling.ca/ for any messages and/or information that might affect you. In the meantime, keep safe, clean off those shoes and look forward to another season of curling. If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate contacting a Board Member by email info@forestcurling.ca and your message will be forwarded onto the person best suited.

Yours in curling, Mark Etienne, Membership, On Behalf of the Forest Curling and Social Club Board
