Thank you to all our members and curlers for your great response to our Covid-19 Participation Survey. We received over 200 responses!
The information you provided is critical for our planning. Using the survey data and other resources including CurlBC's Return to Sport guidelines and WorkSafe BC’s Covid-19 safety plan, the Board will be drafting a few scenarios for what a return to curling looks like at our Club. We will survey our membership again, with details on these scenarios, in mid to late August to help us decide on the best path forward.
A quick snapshot of survey responses. 3 of 4 respondents in the 50+ age category. 3 of 4 respondents indicated they plan to return to curling (as long as the club has adequate safety measures in place). 2 of 3 are willing to pay some amount as a “pandemic fee” in addition to regular dues. Just over half of respondents say they will use the bar/lounge following their games. Finally, 4 of 5 say they are willing to contribute some amount to help offset the costs of a shutdown.
