How to Request or Cancel ice via the On-line Ice Book

    The Ice Book that, for years, resided on the desk beside the door leading out to the back deck is now online. It still looks the same, but you’ll now need your computer, tablet or smartphone to look at it. And the request sheets have been replaced with an on-line request form that you will submit instead of stuffing the handwritten paper version into the locked box.

    So, here’s how it works.

    Step 1 – Go to the Tam website at www.tamheather.ca and log in using the same Username and Password that you used when you registered for this season.

    icebook.login

    Step 2 – Hover your cursor over the “Ice Booking” icon. Then select “View Ice Book” from the resultant drop down. This menu item will onlly be visible to registered curling members.

    Step 3 – View the Ice Book by clicking on the most current file from the listing. If we’re doing a good job of file maintenance, there should only be one file each day. But, if you see more than one file, just select the first one as that should be the newest version.

    Step 4 – Scroll through the file looking for a date/time that you would like to book.

    Step 5 - Close the Ice Book file in order to return to the screen containing the ice request option. This is the Registration section and appears on the same screen as the Ice Book file(s), just further down the screen. Your contact information will be automatically populated from your profile. If any of this information is incorrect, please go to your profile and update it.

    Step 6 – Populate all the required fields (i.e. Purpose, Date, Time, Sheet).

    If you are requesting ice for a Make-up Game, you will also be prompted for the names of the Teams involved.

    There is a “Request Information” section for requesting ice for practice or a make-up game.

    There is a “Cancel Information” section further down for cancelling ice you will not be using.

    After filling out all the required fields, click the purple “Process Registration” icon at the bottom of the page to submit your request.

    Additional information:

    • The Ice Book will be updated every day during the week around mid-afternoon. If you want to verify that you got the sheet you requested, please don’t email or phone the office. Just wait for the next version of the Ice Book to appear and you will see your request reflected. You will only be contacted if there is a problem with your request.
    • Practice ice can only be requested up to a maximum of one week in advance of the date being booked. There is no such limit on Make-up games.
    • When requesting a make-up game, you should also cancel the sheet you are rescheduling in order that it be made available to others. This requirement is intended to discourage the practice of requesting multiple sheets in order to present multiple options for your opposition to choose from. In a perfect world of unlimited ice, this would not be an issue. But make-up and practice ice is limited and reserving multiple sheets “on speculation” like this keeps these sheets from being available to others.
    • Be sure to use this process to cancel any sheets you will not be using. Jason doesn’t want to have to reinstate “The Black List” (names of members who repeatedly did not cancel their sheets resulting in the ice being prepped for use and then sitting empty).

    Cheers,
