Welcome to the Jasper Place Curling Club
2020-21 Registration Newsletter
It’s official! Curling at Jasper Place is a GO!
Thanks to everyone who registered and paid their fees or a $100 deposit by Friday’s deadline. Jasper Place Curling now has enough registered curlers to take a chance on the 2020/21 curling season.
The “GO” decision has several implications for curlers:
· League play will begin on the targeted start date of Friday, October 23. Check out the Leagues tab at jasperplacecurling.ca to confirm when your league(s) begin play.
· The Jasper Place Curling Club will be following guidelines and protocols approved by Alberta Health Services, Curling Alberta, Curling Canada and the City of Edmonton to keep you safe both on and off the ice when you visit the club.
· Deadline for the remainder of fees is Friday, October 16. Receiving your payment even earlier would be great.
Waiver and declaration
You will have seen references in other emails and on the website that everyone must have a completed and signed waiver and declaration before being allowed entry. These documents are important! They are required to help combat the spread of COVID-19. Please watch your email about a week from today to receive these two documents – then read them completely and carefully before completing and signing them and returning them to me by Friday, October 16.
Curlers arriving at the club without these documents completed will be asked to complete and sign the documents before they are allowed entry. This will help ensure the health and safety of everyone in the club.
Bring a friend. Seriously.
We all want to keep curling and keep having a safe, fun experience at Jasper Place Curling. While there are enough individuals registered to open the doors, Jasper Place still needs more curlers to be financially viable.
We are asking for your help. We all have friends, neighbours, grounded snowbirds, family members, members of groups or places of worship we belong to. Now is the time to approach your circle of acquaintances to encourage them to experience something new, something safe, something fun. There is still time for new registrations – and we appreciate every individual who signs up! Singles, full Triples teams or four-person traditional teams. We welcome them all!
The FAQs will be particularly helpful.
· Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you still have questions. I will answer your question within 24 hours. You can also call me at 780-489-6428 if you need to discuss anything with me.

*If you are registering for more than one evening league, simply repeat these steps for each additional league. The payment system will allow you to pay for multiple leagues in one transaction.

These curlers also must pay a $100 deposit no later than September 18. Fees and methods of payment will be determined by each league.
Daytime seniors’ curling
The daytime seniors curling league has been postponed until January 2021.
The Jasper Place Curling Club is making available morning leagues on Monday, Thursday and Friday for anyone displaced from the previous seniors' league wishing to continue to play.
These new daytime leagues will be run by the curling club not the members. The club is happy to accept registrations of teams or individuals that we will place on teams. All leagues will play triples - don't worry if you don't know how that works - it's new to everyone, but it will help ensure that we are all physically distanced.
NEW! Triples Leagues
