Jasper Place Curling News

 What's changed for curling in 2020?
  • Triples Curling has been introduced in curling clubs across Canada. It's going to prove to be fast, democratic, competitve - and a whole lot of fun!  If you're not sure how the rule changes will affect your enjoyment of the game? Wherever possible, migration between the club league and the triples league on the same night will be allowed whenever the 5-game square ends and is re-drawn for the next 5 games. Triples curling will be offered Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening.
  • Start date. JPCC is targeting Friday, Oct. 23 as the first day of curling at the club. That targeted start date depends on YOU! If enough curlers register (and that means paying a $100 deposit or your full fee when you register) by Friday, Sept. 18 to meet JPCC's financial commitments for the season, then we're good to go on Oct. 23. The JPCC Board of Directors will review registration numbers after Sept. 18, and will announce the GO-NO GO decision Sept. 21.
  • The leagues have updated names. In a survey JPCC sent to all members, many curlers wanted the leagues renamed.  Voila! The JPCC leagues are simply named by the day of the week they play.  For example, last years “Tuesday Open (Mixed)” league has been renamed “Tuesday”. The only distinction that we will make now will be to differentiate between the four-person typical curling game and “triples”.  Both the typical game and triples will be offered Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
  • Registration changes:
  1. All teams returning to JPCC will be asked to complete the “Return to Play Team Intention Form” by August 28. Your spot will be available to you for either a full or half year, regular or triples play. In subsequent years when the physical distancing measures are relaxed, you will be able to return to regular from triples play without losing your spot, if you choose to do so.

  2. A $100 deposit OR payment of the full fee is required from every curler in every league this year by Sept. 18 due to the registration uncertainty from COVID-19. Please click the registration link for your league on the home page and select the registration option as determined by the number of players on your team or the “deposit” option.

  3. The balance of your fees must be paid by Friday, Oct. 16 using the online registration system. If pre-paying fees creates a financial hardship, please contact Cathy at 780-489-6428 to discuss a payment plan option.

  4. You asked for it. You got it. The online registration system now accepts Interac e-transfer online payment. When you get to the payment options within the online registration system, select “invoice me”. This allows you to pay by e-transfer using the email address of payments@jasperplacecurling.ca as your payee.  Please use the day of the week you are registering to play as the password. If you are registering for more than one league use “multi” as the password. 

  5. All curlers must submit a signed waiver and declaration by Friday, Oct. 16. These documents will be emailed to you after you have paid the online deposit. Anyone arriving at the curling club on their first curling day without these documents completed will be asked to complete and sign the documents before they are allowed entry to help ensure the health and safety of all curlers. Please note: the curling club is waiting for the declarations and waivers to be approved with the Curling Alberta return-to-play guide. They will be made available as soon as possible.

  • On the warm side of the glass, JPCC will be following the guidance from Albertas Chief Medical Officer of Health and complying with the guidance for restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars Once the approved Return to Play guide from Curling Alberta is available, the curling clubs return to play committee will establish a guide specifically for JPCC. At this time masks will be required upon entry to the building and worn until the curler reaches the field of play (ice). A mask will be required again when the curler exits the field of play and until they take a seat in the upstairs lounge. The lounge will be set up to comply with the restaurant, cafĂ©, pub and bar guidelines which will provide 6’ spacing of tables and 4 chairs per table.
What has stayed the same for 2020?
  • Discounts:  Again JPCC will offer a multi-league discount to anyone registering in more than one league at the club. Prime time leagues will receive a $50 rebate, paid in JP coins. 
  • Recruitment bonus:  For each new team added to a full-year evening league, the existing team that recruited them will receive $200 in JP coins.  Teams can use JP coins anywhere in the club – for drinks, food, pro-shop items or even curling fees.
  • Learn-to-curl clinics will be scheduled once the curling club opening dates are confirmed. 

  • Great news! Jonathan of Preserve Food Truck is returning to provide his tasty delights in the cafe again this year. The bar will be in full swing as well.
