DC Curling Club ready to get back in the hack

The Dawson Creek Curling Club season is right around the corner, and is doing everything it can to ensure members have a full experience.
While this means curlers will have a lot of rules and procedures to get used to, it also means they’ll get to curl as often and to the full extent they would in a normal year.
“We’ve had some good success for the past couple years. The circumstances around covid are out of our control to a degree, but where we can manage them, it’s our responsibility to do that and still offer the level of camaraderie and social activity we’re used to,” said Curling Club GM Jeff Ginter.
Ginter is providing both members and potential members with an extensively detailed Return to Play Plan handbook to highlight everything that is done to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the Curling Club this year, and what will be different than normal.
Curlers will be required to enter the ice-pad on one side of the building and exit on the other, and there will be detailed spots for curlers to stand on the ice when their team is not throwing. As well, only one person will be allowed to sweep at a time. There will be clearly detailed signage throughout the building directing traffic, indicating what rocks and tables have been sanitized, and how many people are allowed in a specific location at any one time.
“We want to be as professional as we can this year, and to reassure folks to be courteous and respectful to each other. We have a family here, curlers are an exceptional group of people that are really respectful and I don’t see that being a big challenge for us.”
“We’re very excited to get going, and I’d encourage people who haven’t even tried curling to use Covid and everything going on as an excuse to try it,” said Ginter.
