The first week of curling has been great and we are most impressed with how all members are embracing the new COVID curling standards.  Looking forward to a fantastic curling season. 
Here are a few Covid Clarifications:

  • Please pay attention to the schedule and if your team is listed to disinfect please arrive 30 minutes before start time.  All other curlers should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before start time.
  • Upon entering the lounge, go to a chair at the table reserved for your sheet.
  • Don’t rearrange the chairs unless you are moving closer to your spouse/partner.
  • The Vices will now disinfect the rocks to allow the skips to move down the ice.
  • The Skip with the hammer will now clean the scorecards.
  • The Vice of the team with the yellow rocks should keep score for both teams.
  • To avoid congestion, the Vice and Skip should enter the ice first.  The Lead and Second can enter the ice once the Vice starts sanitizing the rock handles.
  • For the first rock, the team with the hammer immediately goes to stand on the circles.  The team delivering the first rock should get ready to deliver their rock.
  • Remember, if you can reach out with your broom and touch another person you are too close.
  • We strongly recommend that everyone install the Covid Alert app on their phone

It was great to see that the new curling process is working well for us.  Here is a summary of where you should be positioned on the ice (highlighted in this video 


  • Non delivering team should be on the circles between the hog lines on your sheet when the other team is preparing to deliver.  
  • After delivery, non delivering team should walk along the edge of the sheet (along line of circles) towards the hack (move as soon as the rock is delivered).  
  • For delivering team, the non active sweeper should start on the curtain (just off ice) and follow down the ice with the delivery of the rock.  
  • The delivering team should move up the middle of the sheet and once the non delivering team has moved past you down the side of the sheet you should move to the side to one of the circles.
  • In summary, the delivering team moves down the middle and the non delivering team moves down the side until you have passed all of your opponents. 

Re:  Fenelon Falls Curling Club Annual General Meeting

As I'm sure you are all aware we had hoped to hold our AGM this June but due to the ongoing saga of COVID19, we will have to postpone this until later this summer or fall. 

Our club is very fortunate. We only have very good news to report to you all, notably that we are in a solid financial position, considering what our club has had to overcome with our shortened season. 

In order to ensure that we continue on a strong foothold the board has decided to appoint 3 interim directors to replace those going off. The outgoing directors that have supported us through the past years are : Joan Gibson, Brenda Hann and Darlene Young. I wish to thank them for their support!
We have asked the following individuals to join the board and they have all accepted as interim directors until they can be elected at our AGM. 

Maryjane Greenlee
Trevor Hassen  
Bruce Hooey

Thank you for your continued support and STAY SAFE.

Your Curling Board of Directors

Everyone deals with Covid 19 in their own way.
Some are loud, like the singers and the pots and pan noise makers, giving support to essential workers.
Some folks stay quiet in their homes in an effort to minimize risks to others and themselves.
In our community we’re limited to local access of groceries, pharmacy and healthcare, so decisions to access these essential services are very planned.
The Pharmacists have a program to keep requests for prescriptions filled while protecting their employees.
The Healthcare for non-emergency has accepted virtual appointments.
The grocery store has developed a safe and respectful way to give customers daily access by restricting flow and keeping contact between customers and staff to a minimum.
It takes a lot of effort for all our businesses to stay open for us. 
To help out at this time Fenelon Falls Curling Club offered to lend a hand. So when a customer could not shop for themselves in the store nor leave their home for safety reasons, a volunteer list was offered to Sobeys and groceries delivered with safe protocols.
When there became a need to support  lineups with physical distancing at the entrance to Sobeys ,  a volunteer list was once  again set up. 
We are all working through this pandemic as best we can, supporting one another and bringing hope to our community.
We are confident our awesome town of Fenelon Falls will continue to work together to rejuvenate , rebuild and rekindle our town spirit. 
Thanks to each and every one of you for doing your part.
