Altona Curling Club Code of Conduct

Welcome to the Altona Curling Club. It’s our hope that your experience will be positive on and off the ice. Please note the following happenings, and guidelines this season.

The Automatic Emergency Defibrillator unit is located at the entrance to the ice surface immediately opposite the Club Manager’s office

*****We welcome curlers of all abilities and backgrounds. It is our hope that curlers with more experience will make more recent participants feel welcome and encouraged. Substitute curlers are invited to become associate members. Details are available from any executive member or Terry Peters Club Manager. Substitute curlers are required to play lead as per competition rules for the Altona Curling Club.

Draw Times and Schedules for Junior, Ladies, and Men’s curling are displayed in the locker rooms, and on the main bulletin board (and can also be found on the Altona Curling Club website)

We schedule more than one draw on most nights of the week, and in order to respect those that you are curling against, and who are curling later, request that you practice “ready” curling. All 8 end games should be comfortably completed within the two hour time limit.

Altona Curling Club will host the following bonspiels this season.
FunSpiel – Nov
Ladies Bonspiel – Jan
Men’s Bonspiel – Feb
Mixed Bonspiel – Mar

The Altona Curling Club would not be viable without the generous contributions of it’s volunteers. We thank you in advance for the contribution you make, and encourage you to commit to an area of interest to you, when we call or ask.

You are also invited to attend the playoff finals, and trophy presentations on March 21st, 2013

The Altona Curling Club also endorses the follow rules of Etiquette from Curl Manitoba

1. Always shake hands to start and end a game
2. Mark up the score immediately on completion of an end
3. When you are not delivering a stone stand to the side of the sheets between the hog lines
4. Be as still and quiet as possible while the opposition is delivering a stone. The opposition should do the same for you.
