Altered Game Play for the 2020/2021 season (updated Oct 31, 2020)

See all the Curl BC covid resources here : https://www.curlbc.ca/resources/covid-19-resources/

As you know, playing during the Covid-19 pandemic will mean that game rules have to be modified. We will follow Curl BC guidelines for 4-person curling as follows:


Also, the following safety measures will be in place at the club:

Lobby, lockers and ice surface:

  • Masks must be worn at all times.
  • Teams are to gather in the lounge before games. Teams will go on the ice one sheet at a time.
  • Rocks will be sanitized before each game. Players will be expected to only handle their own 2 rocks during the game.
  • Use of rental equipment will be carefully monitored and all will be sterilized prior to being reused. Due to the extra cleaning cost, there will be a $2 fee per item.

Lounge

  • Masks must be worn at all times, except when seating at your table.
  • Lounge users must stay seated at the same table for the evening and cannot switch groups in the lounge.
  • The lounge will have strictly regimented and enforced social distancing protocols and designated traffic flow, as expected of any establishment.
  • Tables will be set a minimum of 6 feet (2 metres) apart, with no more than 4 people at a table.

Please contact the club by email if you have any questions.
