    Last Call to Curl

    This is one last request to those of you who have yet to let us know your decision on curling this season. If you have already paid all or a portion of your fees, you can disregard this message.

    We plan to continue to prepare for a curling season until we are told we can’t. But first we need assurance from you, the members, that if we put in the ice, and if we are not locked back down again by our politicians, you are interested in curling this season.

    So far, only 40% (approximately 200 members) have confirmed that they are definitely planning on playing this season by registering and paying all or a portion of their membership. This is not enough to support opening. But there are still 257 members who registered back in May and June, but who we need to hear from. This number was over 300 earlier this week, so we conducted a phone blitz and contacted them all in an attempt to get a “yay” or “nay”. But our attempts were only partially successful as, in many cases, we were only able to leave a phone message. I thought the idea of cellphones was to make it easier to reach someone (not true).

    So, this email is intended for those 257 members who remain undecided/unpaid. Please do one of the following this weekend:

    1. If you plan on playing, please go to the website at www.tamheather.ca and pay for your membership. We have even added a split payment option that allows you to pay half now and half in January. If you are undecided because some, or even all, of your teammates from last season have decided not to play, but you would still like to play, rest assured that there are many others in the same situation who are looking for new teammates. Our drawmasters are very good at matching up teams. And you will have the final say in who you want to play with. This year will be less about competition, and more about just getting out and doing something active and social; just having some fun. Something that’s in very short supply these days.
    1. If you have decided not to play this season, please let us know with a quick email to the office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or a phone call to 416-284-9251. If you were a member last season, you may also go online and convert your membership to a “Hold-My-Spot” membership.

    Please do one or the other.

    If you would like to play, but are hesitant to go ahead and pay because you expect that the recent uptick in positive COVID tests will result in us being unable to open, be assured that we will not keep your money in the event we are unable to open. Your money will be refunded in full. If we are able to start the season, and then get shut back down, you will receive a prorated refund for the entire portion of the season that is missed.

    I can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions.

    Cheers,

    Doug
