Update from the Curling Club Executive Team

Here is a message from the PRCC Executive President, Natasha Lebedick.

“At this time, PRCC cannot issue refunds or promise credit in the new season.  Issuing donation tax receipts was also explored with Curl BC.  This avenue turned out to be not an option for our situation.  As outlined above, PRCC finances will be re-examined in September 2021.  The executive will have a better understanding our financial status and can then look into incentives and ways to give back to our dedicated members and to our community as a whole.

I understand everyone’s frustration and disappointment.  This pandemic has created difficult situations for a great many of businesses, community groups and families.  The last 1.5 years has been unprecedented for the Prince Rupert Curling Club.  First, the shut down of the 2019/20 season to upgrade the ice plant.  Directly followed by another shut down in the next season due to Covid-19.  This second shut down was completely out of our control and really unexpected.  I believe that nobody speculated adult sports would be completely paused.  This was evident in the strong return and support of our curling community.  On behalf of the executive, I would like to thank each and everyone you for your support of the curling club. The executive will continue to work hard throughout the remainder of the year.  Rest assured that we have only the best interests for curling members and our community”

Forced to Shutdown

It is with a heavy heart I announce the Prince Rupert Curling Club will be closed for the remainder of the 2020/2021 season due to the extended Covid-19 restrictions. As you all are aware, adult sport restrictions have been extended to February 5th, with no guarantee of being lifted at that time. Keeping the ice plant operational with no ability to generate further funds in not financially viable. On behalf of the executive, I would like to thank all of our members and the community for their understanding and support during these unprecedented times. More information will be following in the coming days via our website: www.princerupertcurlingclub.com and through email. Thank you again for your patience in this matter. If you have further questions, kindly direct them to my personal email: nlebedick@gmail.com  

Opportunity to Curl during Shutdown

As per COVID latest regulations, Curling Clubs may allow 2 people per sheet to practice. Bars are still allowed to be open as long as COVID plan is in place. PRCC will be open regular league nights 7-11pm to allow players practice time for 2 players per sheet during this new order. Hope you get a chance to take advantage of this opportunity. Happy Holidays.

Important: New Covid 19 restrictions

We have informed that as of today (November 19, 2020) that there are new rules for Covid 19. Masks are now required on and off the ice, except when seat at the lounge. Also, spectators are no longer allowed. Here is hoping that these are just short term restriction and things get better soon.

The return of curling for the 2020-21 season!

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the website not being updated in two years (and actually completely disappearing for a few months, although I doubt anyone even noticed). Anyhow…. we are getting close!

On a more serious note, if you are planning to curl this season, please familiarize yourself with some of the changes that will be in place this season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
