Update 31/3/20

Hi All

I sincerely hope you are all well and continue to be so.

The situation regarding Covid-19 does not show any real signs of abating in the United Kingdom. It has been reported that it will get worse before it gets better. The seriousness of this should now be abundantly clear to the population of this country that adhering to the rules and guidance issued to combat this virus is necessary.

Various timescales are flying around as to when normality will return. Some say 3 months others say 6 months, truth is, nobody knows.

In a nutshell, everything is up in the air regarding planning for 20/21 season until such time as some clarity is seen.Your committee members will keep this under review.

A couple of things to mention in the meantime:-

1) The Spring League and Singles competitions have been considered as null and void.
2) A letter has been sent to Preston Curling Club to assess their interest in a home and away match as part of both clubs 150th Anniversary celebrations in 2021.

Please, Please, Please take care of yourselves and your nearest and dearest during this difficult time.

On behalf of your committee.

Coronavirus Announcement

Here at Curl Aberdeen, the health and safety of our members, guests and staff is our highest priority. We, as a community, must do our part in mitigating risk to others in and around our Club. The Management Committee along with myself have decided to close the Club as of this morning, Monday 16th March 2020, for the remainder of the curling season.

This decision was made by consensus with many factors taken into consideration. Curl Aberdeen has a wide-ranging membership demographic, from all walks of life, and staff that allow us to operate daily. We also provide a venue for an even wider demographic of guests for events and room hires. Given the breadth of uncontrollable factors, and rapidly evolving situation, we believe it is our responsibility and best for all involved if we take this step to protect everyone, as much as possible.

We have also taken the decision to postpone the Club AGM on, 30th April 2020. A new date will be sent out once we have a date confirmed.

Updates will be sent out in the next few weeks with our plan going forward. These communications will include details about the current unplayed games, the new season, Club AGM and other details.

In the meantime, stay healthy, stay active, and enjoy time with family.

Best regards,

Tom Brewster
