Clubs Open 1 by 1

Social media is all over Leduc opening. August. Seems early. But, it is an event. Nanaimo announced it will defer opening until October. Haha, that is normal for around farm country. Some don't open until November. Natural ice? - Try January ( a Boxing Day opener sometimes happens if it is a cold December ). How many clubs have reduced sheet-count, to improve physical distancing? For elite curlers, they will need to find the open clubs, to practice. Club curlers will wait. Let's keep track and collectively toast each club that opens, with safety in mind. It's not just about the money. We can make it happen, for our game.

One of Winnipeg's long-standing clubs, The Pembina is going full out for Covid-19 leagues, etc.
Driving down Pembina Hwy today and saw their big sign-board advertising for teams and individual players to round out rosters. I'm sure they're playing it be ear - but if you don't maximize your advertising you won't have much of a pool of players/members to stoke the fire. I imagine they'll tailor their leagues to whatever comes in the door and lays down deposits or paid in full memberships.

Give them an A for Effort.

Don't know if it will pay off but it proceeds with all the risk one might not be able to even conceive!

Highland in London is delaying until January. Chatham not opening at all this season as only 40% of the members said they were coming back.

I find that shocking, and unsettling. But we have not have had the extreme influx of cases here, **until lately** - so, these southern Ontario cases might be the norm. I hope not. I can see curling as safe, if people take the protocols seriously.

Manitoba had a fairly easy sail in the early trip thru Covid19 rivers - but now, business picking up for the Coronavirus . . . and the bad thing - its occurring in two (2) curling hotbeds, Brandon & Steinbach. Brandon has a ton of cases, many at the Maple Leaf Meat plant so curling might be an afterthought for one of Canada's greatest curling communities - WESTMAN.

Steinbach had some outbreak recently so testing may come back with dozens more as Manitoba still hasn't made masks mandatory. Steinbach 38 miles from Winnipeg, and close to avid curling communities like Altona, Morris, WInkler, Niverville, etc.

Winnipeg clubs planning for curling but obviously ready to drop plans at the turn of a hat.

Also in the London region, London Curling opening in October.
St Thomas opening in October.
Ilderton delaying a decision until Sept 8 pending online registration numbers.
St Thomas will refund fees less a two week holdback if it is necessary to shut down after opening. They should really be giving a break on fees because of the 6 week spring closure.

I'm torn. I want to support my club and I think the risk will be low but at the same time I'm not interested in just showing up, curling and heading home. The fun of curling is the social part, shooting the sht in the locker room and having beers with your opponent afterwards. My club might have room for about 15 people in the bar so that's about 4 teams sitting 1 person to a table. The club barely gets by with the bar full so less than half capacity is trouble.

I do most of my socialization on the ice. Sometimes I'll stop for a drink after, but not usually. Day league, of course, so that's different. But the game does lend itself to that on-ice chat. It's not a total social blow-out if the restaurant/bar is limited. And those pros now know how to set up for social distancing aprés curl. Push tables together to make them bigger. Limit # of chairs. It can still happen. Don't give up yet. Wash your hands. Be careful. Monitor your own symptoms.

Manitoba's Morris Curling Club has a Junior 'Spiel on as we post. TeamLyburnJunior is giving us some instagram posts. It feels normal. It's not, but it feels normal. Bit by bit, we're pushing out of the old hack. https://www.instagram.com/p/CELJBdr...id=bsekc1x6d48x
EDIT: I double checked. It is a MJCT (manitoba junior curling tour) event. It is for real.
The MJCT page shows events across the province scheduled (read - #NotCancelled) at various clubs: St.Vital, Heather, Stonewall, Petersfield, Swan River, Elmwood - so, unless there is some carelessness - the season is under way. https://mjct.ca/events/

I can easily see some curlers leaving the ice if someone on their sheet or an adjacent sheets exhibits symptoms of covid - ie. coughing, hacking, sneezing, overt sweating, etc. Why wait if you sense you're in jeopardy, you've already paid your season dues - just leave in disgust if the afflicted person persists in staying on - and stupid people are usually the most persistent in not recognizing or refusing to acknowledge they may be sick - and need to be tested.
Curling clubs should also have covid testing kits or personnel from their health authorities on hand - but never over-estimate the health authorities ability to be ignorant or stupid when in comes to adults recreation/sports.

Note to the Manitoba posters...a full plane landed from TorontoI to Winnipeg...nobody was stopped we all went on our merry way. Yet your government website said that everyone coming from southern Ontario has to do a 14 day quarantine unless they are going to NW Ontario.

So CurlingGeek has a database of clubs and is reporting Open, Delay, Closed, or unknown, of 1000+ clubs in Canada and the USA. about 26% reporting. It's kinda fun to explore the database.

They're just saying that to make Manitobans FEEL safer. Any govt. run by Brian Pallister is a dishonest endeavor by definition only. BTW - what on earth were you doing in WInnipeg and why didn't you call me?
