Greetings everyone,

I am honored to bring you greetings this holiday season in my first December as your Club President. It’s that time when we pause to reflect on the year that was and look ahead to the new year where brighter days are sure to be in store for us all.

Over the past twelve months our club has faced many challenges. None greater than COVID-19, which effectively shut down the world and has placed a terrible hold over all of us. Through it all though the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club (AMCC) achieved and accomplished many great things including:

  • Dennis Thiessen (2nd) on Team Canada winning a Silver Medal at the World Wheel Chair Curling Championship in March;
  • Team Brett Walter winning the Junior Men’s Provincial Championship in January;
  • Team Jacques Gauthier winning the Canadian and World Junior Men’s Championship in February;
  • We successfully hosted draws for the Manitoba Open;
  • We successfully adapted to the digital age with our Online Registration feature;
  • We successfully implemented our Return to Play Protocols which allowed us to safely open our facility for use;
  • We re-introduced our Youth Program laying down a solid foundation to help build our game at the grass roots level;
  • We successfully and safely ran one of the few competitive Bonspiels in the Province during the Pandemic - the Atkins Curling Supplies Classic;
  • We successfully ran a Drive Thru Poppy Fundraiser for the Royal Canadian Legion in November;
  • The AMCC Men’s Leagues continued its long tradition of supporting the Christmas Cheer Board with a Generous Donation in December.   

As our global community fights to win against this virus, the Board of Directors and I are going to be working very hard to ensure we will be able to continue to operate, when we are safely able to, and provide the quality service and on ice experience our members and guests deserve. Some of the key initiatives we have already undertaken or are in the process of implementing include:

  • Targeting all available grants, loans and programs from all levels of government to help offset the mounting expenses caused by the shutdown of our facility;
  • Continuing the refinement of our Return to Play Guidelines to ensure a quick transition when our facility is permitted to open for use;
  • Working with our Leagues to ensure that facility availability and options are provided to allow for the completion of a complete and meaningful season;
  • Improving our members on ice and off ice experience while at the Club;
  • Ensuring the long term financial viability of the Club by improving operational efficiencies, increasing revenue streams and through sound financial decisions.

As we enter the new year, I am confident that together we will see many more successes and overcome the current challenges that we now face. I thank you for your continued support and commitment to making the AMCC the Home of Champions on and off the ice.

In closing, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend my warmest wishes for a safe and enjoyable holiday season and a healthy and happy new year to you and your families.

Regards,

Ken Onagi | AMCC Club President

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

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.

Poppy Campaign


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.
