Curbside fundraiser in support of Charleswood Legion Poppy Campaign

What a day we had on Thursday! Our Curbside Poppy Fundraiser was an overwhelming success that exceeded anything I could have imagined. It would not have been possible without the dedication and efforts of all of you. From the bottom of my heart I thank each and everyone of you for making it a success.

A total of $2,276.85 was raised for the Poppy Fund and our Veterans.

Special thanks to my Father Harold Onagi and Jody’s son Brandon Cohoe-Smart for volunteering their time for this cause!

Huge Thanks to Club Member Brooke Onagi and Club Manager Jody Smart for their incredible work getting everything ready leading up to yesterday so we could have this event in the first place and with all their efforts helping during the event!

Thank you to the Charleswood Legion League Curlers Rose and Phil Otis for jumping on board and dedicating your time to making this idea a reality!

Finally I wish to express our thanks to our Webmaster / Social Media Director Kevin for getting the word out and updating our social media platforms. We had many people show up because they heard about it from the media outlets. We had people who heard about it and came out from as far away as Fort Richmond, The HCS as well as other parts of the city! We had people driving up just to drop off money and didn’t want a Poppy as they were already wearing one. What an incredible day!

In the meantime on behalf of Al, myself and the rest of the AMCC Board thanks again!

Regards,
Ken

Winnipeg and Area Level Red Restrictions

As you may have heard earlier today, Level Red public health orders enacted to reduce the spread of COVID-19 will apply to the City of Winnipeg beginning 12:01 am Monday, November 2. This action requires all indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, including ours, to close for a minimum of 14 days.

Following the lead of two weekend leagues that decided to cancel their scheduled games, the AMCC Board of Directors will close our facility effective immediately. Other city clubs have taken the same action.

The ice surface will remain intact, and facility staff will take actions necessary to reduce operating costs and maintain the facility in a condition that allows quick and efficient resumption of league play when conditions allows us to do so.

We will continue to watch for guidance from Provincial health authorities and CurlManitoba, and provide further updates to our members as the situation evolves. If you have any questions, please watch our website for updates, or send our Club Manager Jody an e-mail using the contact link on our home page.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Late Draw Accommodations for Level Orange restrictions

To maximize the ability for all players to utilize AMCC’s lounge amenities, and attempt to ensure a fair amount of game time for all teams, the following procedures will be used for Wednesday and Thursday leagues that include early and late draws:

  • For contact tracing and recordkeeping purposes, all Wednesday Business Ladies League curlers will be treated as a single unit of players, regardless if a team is playing a late or early game on a given night.
  • Similarly - for contact tracing and recordkeeping purposes, all Thursday Mens’ league curlers will be treated as a single unit of players, regardless if a team is playing a late or early game on a given night.
  • The early draw will begin play at 7:00 pm as scheduled.
  • The 8:40 bell will signal that the current end being played will conclude the game. To be clear – only the current end is to be finished when the bell rings – NOT “current end plus one more.”
  • When two sheets have been vacated by the early draw (immediately upon conclusion of the game), the league convener or Board member will notify the ice crew to begin ice preparation for the next draw.
  • The late draw teams will be allowed to enter the ice shed only when instructed by the league convener / Board member present, after the ice crew has finished preparing their sheets.

Practice ice booked for 9:15 pm Thursdays will adhere to that scheduled time. Early entry to the ice shed will not be permitted.

Leagues playing on Wednesdays and Thursdays must ensure that all players are aware of the following operating restrictions currently imposed by the Province of Manitoba:

  • Bar beverage sales end at 10:00 pm (last call 9:50 pm).
  • Curling games must end by 10:50 pm, so that all players can vacate the ice shed and change before the facility closes.
  • All lounge patrons and curlers must leave the building, and doors will be locked, by 11:00 pm.

These measures will become effective October 20, and will remain in effect until Level Orange health restrictions implemented by the Province of Manitoba no longer require AMCC’s premises to be vacated by 11:00 pm.

Winnipeg and area COVID Level Orange update / Mandatory Mask Update

Message from CurlManitoba and Winnipeg Curling Clubs Association (WCCA)

Please Note:  Public Health has updated their interpretation of the COVID-19 Prevention Orders.

It was originally believed that curlers could continue to curl past 11pm as long as the bar/restaurant was closed and all alcohol was removed.

This morning, Public Health informed CurlManitoba that the current legal interpretation of the COVID-19 Capital Region Prevention Order is that Prevention Order 5 Licensed Premise overrules Prevention Order 10.

CurlManitoba received the following communication from Manitoba Emergency Coodination Centre:

For clarity, licensed facilities can continue to operate and allow members of the public to engage in activities, such as curling. However, facilities must ensure that those in any bar or lounge area are assigned to a table and must remain seated unless they are travelling to or from washrooms, engaged in playing a video game or other similar activity in the licensed premises, briefly interacting with staff at the licensed premises, or entering or leaving the licensed premises. Additionally, there can be no liquor service between 10:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. and the operator of the licensed facility must ensure that all members of the public vacate by 11:00 p.m., including those engaged in recreational activities, such as curling. Order 5 is not specific to restaurants or bars but applies to the licensed premises.  

Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention; we appreciate hearing your feedback and have shared it with public health for consideration. We acknowledge that the measures in place are having an impact on businesses and organizations in Manitoba. This is not an ideal situation, however, Manitoba's top priority is the health and safety of its citizens in the face of this unprecedented pandemic. As this is an evolving situation, we encourage you to stay up to date by visiting: https://manitoba.ca/covid19/index.html.

CurlManitoba will continue to advocate to have the sport of curling continue past 11:00pm however, at this time, it is important to follow the current interpretation from the Provincial legal team - which is that all curlers must be out of the licensed establishment by 11:00pmPlease consider altering draw times or shortening games to be done by 10:50pm to ensure all curlers have 10 minutes to change their shoes and leave the premise. Please communicate this to all members.

We understand the frustration with the constant changes this season and appreciate all the work clubs are doing to be flexible and support a safe return to curling. I’m sure your curlers also appreciate all your staff and volunteer efforts to make this sport as safe as possible.

Level Orange restrictions applicable to licensed premises in Winnipeg and area, made effective on October 7 will affect AMCC operations as follows:

  • Liquor and beer sales both in the lounge and on the ice will end at 10:00 pm sharp.
    • Bar staff will make an effort to poll players on the ice for final drink orders between 9:30 and 10:00 pm.
  • The facility must be vacated by all customers (this means - anyone who is not a paid staff member) prior to 11:00 pm.
    • Anybody playing a late draw must take his/her belongings to the main floor at the start of his/her game.
    • Game play must end by 10:50 pm, so that all curlers may change shoes and exit the building by 11:00 pm.
    • Further updates for leagues curling a late draw will be provided after September 17.
  • Effective October 19 - all tables in the lounge and on the main floor will be restricted to no more than 5 occupants (most were before solely due to spacing requirements, but not it is mandated by the Province).
  • Discussions between the Return to Play Committee and conveners of leagues with late draws to increase availability of bar service to those players in late games are ongoing - but at this time there is no change to game scheduling.

These restrictions are expected to be in place until at least November 4 - but may be extended. Updated signage and communications will be issued when the restrictions are removed.

Reminder: at all times during the season, any curler who is in the building at a time outside of one of his/her scheduled full-time league games (i.e. visiting the lounge as a non-curling guest, sparing for another team in a league other than his/her regular full-time league) MUST sign-in at the bar upon entering the facility.

Level Orange Restrictions for Winnipeg beginning September 28

Mask Rules Updated September 28

During past week the AMCC Board of Directors and many members of the club have had the opportunity to put into practice the Clubs Return to Play Guidelines. Based on this opportunity to play on the ice, new supporting guidance and information from the WHO, the board has revised the "Mandatory Mask" rule while participating in the Ice Shed.

Masks during play will now be optional but is still highly recommended. If you choose to wear a mask while playing, it is recommended that you change them regularly when they get damp. Mask use also MUST NOT be your primary control to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We respectfully ask that you continue to follow all public health directives and the Club’s Return to Play Guidelines (http://keepcurling.curlamcc.com) - which will be updated to reflect the rule change within the next week.

It is critical that we all do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Continue to stay home if you are feeling sick, or have been in contact with any confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.
  • Maintain 6’ / 2m physical distancing at all times.
  • Practice good hand hygiene.
  • Wear a face mask at all times when entering our facility, taking it off ONLY a) when when seated in the café or lounge or b) participating in our ice shed according to Curl Canada’s rules pertaining to play.

Thank you for doing your part to ensure we all continue to have a safe and fun curling season.
