December 21 2020 – January 10 2021
New public health restrictions were announced on December 16 and they will have a significant impact on the operations of the Chester Curling Club for the next few weeks. The new restrictions take effect at midnight on Sunday, December 20 and last until at least January 10.

Under these restrictions, sports practices and training may take place, but must be limited to a maximum of 25 people. Games or tournaments are not permitted.

All curling games, including league play and drop-in games will therefore be cancelled for the period of the restrictions. The only curling activities that will be allowed in the club will be team practices involving regular team members and coaches.

Team practices will be conducted under the following guidelines:

Access will be limited to teams that regularly curl together and who have a coach or other volunteer who has been issued a key and is willing to act as the designated individual as defined in our Facilities Operation Plan The designated individual is responsible to ensure that the ice shed is used safely and responsibly, and to ensure that all COVID-19 precautions are followed. If your team is unable to make arrangements with an authorized keyholder, please contact Beth Atherton at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so arrangements can be made.

Bookings are to made in the ice book at the club and bookings must include the number of people in your group, in order to ensure that ice usage is coordinated and that the total number of participants does not exceed the public health limit of 25 participants.  The ice will be shaved on the afternoons of December 22, 23, 27, 29, January 2, 5, 7, and the 10th and will not be available for practice at those times. It is up to the teams using the facility to prepare the ice for their own use, if they wish to do so. If you do pebble, nip, etc, please make the appropriate entry in the ice maintenance log, so others will know what the status/usage of the ice has been.  All COVID-19 precautions are to be followed when entering the club and when preparing to go out on the ice. This includes hand sanitizing, signing in in the book at the entrance, wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing. Once all participants have arrived, the outer door will be locked to maintain club security while teams are on the ice.

In preparation for leaving the club, please ensure that all tables, chairs and other surfaces that have been contacted by your group are sanitized and that chairs are leaned up against the tables to assure subsequent users that they have been sanitized. As usual, all lights in the club are to be turned off and the entrance doors are to be locked upon departure from the club.
