Welcome to the Jasper Place Curling Club

Curling update - Jan. 12, 2021

As you will be aware, the Province extended the current Public Health Order (PHO) until at least Thursday, Jan. 21 when authorities will announce either the lifting of some or all restrictions or another extension of the current lockdown.  

If the Jan. 21 announcement allows curling to resume, Jasper Place Curling can be ready for play within a few days - to ensure the ice is ready for play and to give me time to prepare new draws. If the Province again extends the PHO on Jan. 21, the club will again review the options available to get in at least some of our late winter curling schedule. Our strong hope is to get as many games as possible played this winter/spring, possibly with a slightly extended curling season.

Regardless of which league you signed up for – seniors for 8 games, a half season of 10 games or the full season of 20 games) – I hope you are planning to return to play if and when curling resumes. If you registered for the half season of 10 games because of other time commitments after the New Year, please email me to discuss your situation. For everyone else, keep your fingers crossed that we can hit the sheets in later January.

The Public Health Order (PHO) put in place in late November has been extended to at least Thursday, Jan. 21. That means curling across Alberta continues to be suspended until at least Jan. 21 when the Government of Alberta will give an update on Alberta's numbers of COVID-19 cases.
