The 2021 BC Club Championships

Quesnel is hosting the BC Club Challenge on September 29th to October 3rd. We realize that this is short notice as the registrations need to be submitted to Curl BC by midnight September 1st. We were not sure if the changes in the covid regulations would allow us to hold this event.
Registration is done with Curl BC. Their website has links and info on registering or use the links Registration Links at the bottom of this post.
Registering for playdowns to qualify for a championship is easy. Select the playdown you wish to enter by clicking the event category heading below and you will be redirected to the category page with event registration links. In an effort to streamline the process you will only require each player’s name, coach information, team contact information and home club at this stage of registration. Each team member will then need to complete the competitor agreement (once per season).

Some things to know:

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Hello all, I hope this finds you and yours healthy and happy.

During these unique and challenging times, it is important to remember that we can still accomplish a lot of good by working together, being kind and staying safe.

In preparation for our return to curling this fall, we would like to keep you informed of the changes we are making and the work we are doing in light of the Return to Curling Guidelines released by Curling Canada and Curl BC. On top of this, we have created additional guidelines that will ensure a safe and secure environment for all.  It is of paramount importance that we each take the time to read, understand and follow these guidelines.  We are all responsible for not only our own safety, but for the safety and well- being of those around us. 

To be clear, these guidelines are written for PHASE 3 and we will continue to be in constant communication and update our protocols as we move forward in this ever- changing environment.

We appreciate your support and look forward to an interesting season with all of you.

Stay safe and see you soon.

 Ralph Givens

OVERVIEW

All activities in our curling centre must operate within current provincial health restrictions in order to limit the transmission of Covid-19 in our community.  These guidelines meet the criteria set out in the CurlBC—Return to Curling Guidelines and have been approved by the Quesnel curling executive, CurlBC and WorkSafe BC.  In addition to specific return to curling requirements prompted by the pandemic, Covid-19 related risk assessment, and the general public health rules and directives for the curling public, Centre operations must also address the health and safety risk issues for staff and volunteers as outlined in the viaSport Guidelines. The following sections outline measures taken for curlers and staff alike.   Click on QCC Return to Curling to go to QCC booklet explaining all requirements that will allow us to curl during this Covid period.
