Club Update - May 14

  • This month's Board meeting was held on May 13 by teleconference. There is no significant change to our current operating status.
  • AMCC Board members will be attending "Return to Play" seminars hosted by Curling Canada / CurlMB in the next few weeks, and sharing information about what the upcoming season may look like when available.
  • Current health restrictions will not allow us to hold an in-person Annual General Meeting in our usual late-June timeframe, with required 30 days' notice.
    • Our Constitution does not allow us to hold an online version (and the Constitution cannot be amended without holding a member vote at the AGM).
    • We are required to hold the AGM and file reports prior to October 24.
    • The Board's current plan is to wait for the next phase of business re-opening to be announced by the province, and provide 30 days' notice of the AGM at that time.

April 19

An update for our members since we closed for the season on March 16:

  • AMCC remains closed to the public as per Government of Manitoba public health orders. Ice removal and plant shutdown work has been completed, and repair work for damage to the east ice shed wall is being finalized with our insurance providers. We continue to communicate with the construction crew at the neighboring Bruce Oake recovery centre on a regular basis (whose staff remain authorized to utilize AMCC's parking lot - on a somewhat increased basis during the next few weeks).
  • The Board of Directors continues to hold monthly meetings via teleconference - minutes may be found under the Members - Board of Directors... menu (you need to log in to the website to see it). Note that there is at least a one month delay between a meeting being held and minutes being posted.
  • Be assured that we are continuing to plan for normal club operations beginning in September, to the extent that public officials allow us to do so. In support of that goal, a draft operating budget for the 2020-21 curling season has been reviewed and approved. Contingency plans are also being developed for various scenarios that could materialize due to future public health orders.Timing for the Annual General Meeting (normally held in late June) will be discussed at our May 13 Board meeting, with an announcement to be made shortly after.

If you have any questions about our club, please use our website contact form to send us an e-mail.

Mens' Wind-up and Senior Men's Golf Day

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, our Mens' League wind-up has been tentatively re-scheduled. Since the club is closed we have made online payment available through our website using PayPal. We ask that you please send Graham an email after paying online (click here to pay) with your name and who you are golfing with so we can get the teams together.

Facility Closed due to COVID-19

5:30 pm Sunday 15 Mar:

To all members, guests, and staff of AMCC:

Earlier this afternoon, all Board members of the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club convened an emergency meeting to discuss our response to the COVID-19 epidemic.

Directors voted to close the facility to the public and cancel all remaining curling and facility events through April 15, effective at 4:00 pm today.

Our decision was not an easy one, but given other preventative measures announced by the Province (closing schools for 3 weeks beginning March 23), and City (closure of all city-owned recreation facilities and libraries), there was really no other responsible choice. We realize that this decision creates financial impacts to our contractors, staff, and some leagues; we will be discussing ways of minimizing these impacts in the coming days, and make a final decision on how to proceed at our regular Board meeting (which will be held by teleconference) on March 21.

To facilitate locker clean-up, the following arrangements will be made:

  • The facility will be accessible Tuesday, March 17 through Thursday, March 19 for locker clean-up – 2:00 – 4:00 pm and 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Bar and restaurant will be closed; please minimize personal contact with others as much as possible during your stay.
  • Please bring your own hand sanitizer / disinfectant wipes to clean your hands and locker handles before and after clean-up.
  • If you are sick, or fall into one of the self-isolation categories, please stay home. Arrange for a friend or teammate to pick up your belongings and deliver them to you when it is safe to do so. If you are unable to do so, your belongings will remain safe in your locker until the facility re-opens.

Other items to be aware of:

  • If you were expecting to participate in upcoming play-off or wind-up activities at the Club, please watch for further information from your league convener.
  • If you were entered in the FUNSpiel beginning on March 24, a separate e-mail notification will be provided to all registrants early next week. A full refund will be issued via PayPal, with no action required on your part; please wait up to 14 days for our volunteers to issue those refunds, and the transactions to be processed by your bank / credit card provider.
  • The Mens’ Wind-up (scheduled for May) has not yet been canceled or re-scheduled. Tickets will be made available for purchase through our website later this week, so that any teams who have not been able to do so can, and our organizers can make food and golf arrangements.

Board members will continue to monitor the situation, and issue updates on our facility’s status as they unfold (every 30 days, at a minimum). If you have any questions or concerns, please use the contact form on our web site to send us an e-mail: https://curlamcc.ca/index.php/contact-us. Please be patient in waiting for a response, as all of us who respond to e-mail are volunteers.

Until we see you again - please stay healthy, and contribute to the collective efforts in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your support andf understanding.
