Note to Members of the Cornwall Curling Club

26 January 2022

Some good news from the Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) today: a relaxing of the restrictions that have been in place since mid-January will take effect on Monday, 31 January 2022.

The Club will once again be able to offer the “Members’ Ice Time” program.
In keeping with the new CPHO guidance this has been expanded to include Team (with Coach if applicable) ice sharing.

Junior Team Practice will be able to resume as per their designated team practice schedule (Monday to Thursday 4pm to 5pm or 5pm to 6pm).

We are also investigating if our Novice and Little Rock instructional programs are able to resume under this CPHO guidance.

The Members ice time schedule will be posted Friday morning and members can begin booking ice time once it is posted.

Please call the club to book your ice time at 902-566-4427 or email cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca .

The Board of Directors continues to look at all scenarios for how to make the most of what remains of the season; this includes the possibility of extending the season.

We will continue to provide information and alter our operations as we receive guidance from the CPHO.
Be assured that the health and safety of all who enter the Club continues to be our overriding focus.

Cornwall’s Lauren Lenentine, Team Birt set for the Scotties – draw now avail. (Curling Canada)

A modified 18-team draw is ready to go for the 2022 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Thunder Bay, Ont., it was announced today by Curling Canada.

The event will operate under the Province of Ontario’s current public health measures, which allow for sporting activities for select professional and elite amateur sport leagues to operate via an approved framework from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer.

“With the advancement of the new Omicron variant we wanted to ensure Curling Canada set up the most effective health protocols possible to keep all participants at the 2022 Scotties Tournament of Hearts safe,” said Curling Canada CEO Katherine Henderson. “We thank our partners in Ontario Health and the local health authority in Thunder Bay for helping us put together a plan to make this event a success.”

Part of the framework includes no fans or media inside Fort William Gardens and only allowing entrance to players, coaches, officials and essential operational staff/volunteers. 

Curling Canada will contact current ticket holders and provide a refund in full. Customers should not contact the box office at the venue.

In response to the Province of Ontario’s announcement that 500 fans will be permitted in sports venues starting Jan. 31, Curling Canada will initiate communication with stakeholders about the possibility of a modified ticket plan for the final three days of the event. Curling Canada is erring on the side of caution and will not admit fans into the building during the round robin even though public health guidelines allow it.  We thank all curling fans for their patience and understanding as we manage this complex process as efficiently as possible.

TSN/RDS, the official broadcaster of Curling Canada’s Season of Champions, will be in the venue and provide full television coverage of the event.

The 2022 edition of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts will feature an updated format that brings back the Page playoff system.

The event will feature 18 teams split into two pools of nine, seeded based on their final standing on the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) as of Jan. 10, 2022, and play a complete eight-game round-robin. 

From there, the top three teams in each pool (instead of the top four) advance to an expanded playoff field. The second and third-ranked teams in each pool crossover to play in Page playoff qualifier games on Friday at 1 p.m. (all times ET). The winners advance to play the winners of Pool A and Pool B on Friday at 7 p.m. The winners of those games go to the Page 1v2 game, while the losers will compete in the Page 3v4 game.

From there, the standard Page playoffs commence with the winner of the Page 1v2 game on Saturday at 7 p.m., advancing directly to the final, and the loser plays the winner of the Page 3v4 game (scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday) in the semifinal. 

The semifinal (Sunday at Noon) winner takes on the winner of the Page 1v2 game in the final at 7 p.m. on Sunday. The winner will represent Canada at the 2022 OK Tire & BKT Tires World Women’s Curling Championship in Prince George, B.C., from March 19-27.

If necessary, only one tiebreaker game will be scheduled for Friday at 9 a.m. for third-place only. If there is a tie between more than two teams for the spot, teams will be eliminated by head-to-head record first and then by accumulated last stone draw to determine the two teams that will play in the tiebreaker game. Tiebreaker games will only be played if teams have a better than .500 record (5-3 or better).

The format at the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier, presented by AGI, will be the same.

Here’s a look at how the two pools are set up:

Pool A

1. Team Wild Card 1, Tracy Fleury (Selena Njegovan, Liz Fyfe, Kristin MacCuish, Robyn Njegovan, Sherry Middaugh; East St. Paul, Man.)

4. Team Wild Card 2, Chelsea Carey (Jolene Campbell, Stephanie Schmidt, Jennifer Armstrong, Rachel Erickson, Colin Hodgson; Regina)

5. Team Wild Card 3, Rachel Homan (NOTE – Homan will not be participating due to mixed doubles commitment at 2022 Olympic Winter Games; Emma Miskew to skip; Sarah Wilkes, Alli Flaxey, Joanne Courtney, Lynn Kreviazuk, Marcel Rocque; Ottawa)

8. Saskatchewan, Penny Barker (Christie Gamble, Jenna Enge, Danielle Sicinski, Amber Holland, Mark Lang; Moose Jaw, Sask.)

9. Northern Ontario, Krista McCarville (Kendra Lilly, Ashley Sippala, Sarah Potts, Jen Gates, Rick Lang; Thunder Bay, Ont.)

12. New Brunswick, Andrea Crawford (Andrea Crawford, Sylvie Quillian, Jill Babin, Katie Foward, Daryell Nowlan; Fredericton)

13. Prince Edward Island, Suzanne Birt (Marie Christianson, Meaghan Hughes, Michelle McQuaid, Kathy O’Rourke; Montague & Cornwall)

16. Newfoundland & Labrador, Sarah Hill (Kelli Sharpe, Beth Hamilton, Adrienne Mercer, Laura Phillips; St. John’s)

17. Nunavut, Brigitte MacPhail (Sadie Pinksen, Kaitlin MacDonald, Alison Taylor, Donalda Mattie; Iqaluit)

3. Team Canada, Kerri Einarson (Val Sweeting, Shannon Birchard, Briane Meilleur, Krysten Karwacki, Reid Carruthers; Gimli, Man.)

6. Manitoba, Mackenzie Zacharias (Karlee Burgess, Emily Zacharias, Lauren Lenentine, Lori Olson-Johns, Sheldon Zacharias; Altona)

7. Ontario, Hollie Duncan (Megan Balsdon, Rachelle Strybosch, Tess Bobbie, Julie Tippin, Barry Westman; Woodstock)

10. Northwest Territories, Kerry Galusha, lead stones, (Jo-Ann Rizzo, Sarah Koltun, Margot Flemming, Megan Koehler, Shona Barbour; Yellowknife)

U13 Funspiel (orig. scheduled for Feb. 5) Postponed

The annual U13 Funspiel,  previously scheduled for Saturday February 5th,  has been postponed given the recent direction of a “pause on sports” and then the closure of sports facilities from the Chief Public Health Office. If we are able to re-open January 31st and with the uncertainty of what the possible re-opening would look like, it does not allow the club to be able to plan for the event with confidence. The club will make every effort to re-schedule the Funspiel for later in the season,  and /or offer a FUN event for U13 club curlers on a Sunday afternoon.
If you have any questions, please reach out to the club at cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca  or 902-566-4427.

Club seeking volunteers for our 40th Anniversary Celebration Committee

We are very excited to announce that our Club will celebrate its 40th Birthday this season!!!

With this wonderful news, we need your help…
 
Our Board of Directors is seeking volunteers to work on this. The committee would plan a celebrational day (and/or celebrations throughout the year).
 
If you are interested, please contact our Club Vice-President Debbie Rhodenhizer at drhodenhizer@gmail.com or touch base with our Club Manager as soon as possible!
 
We have tentatively planned Saturday, March 19th for a day of reflection and fun!
 
Here’s a flashback to the sod turning for the Club:
 
 
Sod Turning: Hon. Pat Binns – Minister of Municipal Affairs, David Miles – Village Council, David Leslie – C.M.H.C.
 
 

Our 20th anniversary events included an anniversary bonspiel, a juniors bonspiel, a history room with memorabilia from years gone by, a banquet, and a variety concert.

The team of Al MacCormac, Gladys Wright, Sterling MacRae, and Zita Cameron won the anniversary bonspiel:

Another activity was an “old fashioned” variety concert, which wrapped up with a chorus led by coordinators Phyllis Lowther and Miriam MacLean.

Despite the blustery weather, a large crowd was on hand as piper Danny Campbell lead the “Grand March” from the Cornwall Curling Club to the United Church hall for the 20th Anniversary banquet.

Piper Danny Campbell, followed by Shirley and Gordie Lank, Premier Pat Binns, and other head table guests at our 20th anniversary banquet.

Members Practice Ice availability and guidelines/conditions for week of Jan. 17-21

 We are welcoming bookings for “Members Ice Time” for the week of January 17th to January 21st.

Please contact the club via email at cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca or 902-566-4427.

Before booking, please review the terms and guidelines for ‘Members Ice Time’ as listed below.

Those booking the ‘Members’ Ice Time’ are responsible to ensure that all those in the group are abiding by the guidelines.

All members and family members will be required to sign a disclaimer before proceeding to the ice that states:

I declare by signing this form that I am:

  • Curling with my “close contacts/steady ten” as defined by CPHO
  • That I am not required to self-isolate.
  • That I have no symptoms of COVID or any strains of COVID.
  • That I have proven I am fully vaccinated and have provided ID.

     All according to the current standards of our Provincial Government. 

*  this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.

About Members Ice Times- Guidelines and Conditions:

“Members Ice Time” is a great way to get out of the house, get some exercise, and keep your ‘draws and takeouts’ intact!

You should also know:

  1. Our ‘retail’ operations (the Pro Shop) will be open at 50% capacity. The Pro Shop will be open from 12 noon to 8 pm, Monday to Friday
    2. Our food and beverage operations will be available, at 50% capacity, from 12 noon to close, Monday to Friday. Enjoy a drink and a snack. Remember: masks must be worn at all times when not sitting AND eating or drinking. Social distancing rules are in effect.
  2. ‘Members Ice Time’ is available to members and any of those members who are in their “steady ten”(See book times below).

What times can I book “Members Ice Time”?

You can book “Members Ice Time” Monday to Friday, in one-hour blocks, at the following times:

10:00 am-11:00 am, 11:00 am-12 noon, 12:30 pm-1:30 pm, 1:30 pm-2:30 pm, 4:00 pm-5:00 pm, 5:00 pm-6:00 pm, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm, 7:00 pm-8:00 pm

It is the responsibility of the member who is booking ice to pass on information (below) to their “steady ten”.

Who can I share a sheet of ice with? You can book a sheet of ice independently, or you can book a group of 8 who are within your “steady ten”.

What does “steady ten mean? “Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/news/additional-public-health-measures-to-limit-the-number-of-contacts-31-new-cases-of-covid-19

Personal Gatherings: When you curl in a group of “up to 8” (as per our current club operations guidelines) during our ‘Members’ Ice Time’ with others (vs independently) it is considered a “personal gathering”, as defined by CPHO:
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” –CPHO

“Activities with steady 10 personal contacts permitted such as a family going bowling or curling (up to 10 individuals ) – recognizing the intent of the current measures is to minimize contacts”-CPHO

So basically CPHO (with the goal of public safety and “intent to minimize contacts”) would like you to pick ten people, in addition to your household, to spend time with at “personal gatherings” overall in life.

How that relates to curling:
As mentioned, curling with up to 8 curlers is considered a “personal gathering”. Who you curl with should be a part of your LIFE “steady ten”.

The intention of this guideline is to allow families or very close personal friends (that you have identified as your “steady ten” cohort in life) to share a sheet of ice.

From CPHO:

“Activities with up to a steady 10 personal gathering limit permitted (e.g. family going bowling, or curling) – recognizing the intent of the current measures is to minimize contacts.” -CPHO

This initiative was implemented in an effort to offer our members an opportunity to stay active safely during these unusual times, and has been approved (based on conditions listed) by the CPHO and our Club Board of Directors.

The below conditions are mandatory:

*Each sheet can be booked for no more than 8 people in a group. You must provide names for all people in your group if not a family.
* Those in your group of 8 or less MUST be considered a “close contact/“a part of your steady 10” as defined by CPHO.
* Each booking will require that everyone in your group sign a disclaimer noting the following: that you are curling with what you have self-identified “close contacts / steady 10” according to the terms and definition of the office of the Chief Public Health Office. Along with a disclaimer that you do not have covid or covid-like symptoms, and that you are not required to self isolate for any reason. (This last point was on our CPHO contact tracing document last season as well).
* Sheets of ice will be booked in one-hour increments, however if there is no other booking behind you, your group may stay an extra hour.
*All curlers must social distance at all times.
* The club will maintain a 50% capacity to our posted capacity limit.
* We ask that curlers book during the times that they would normally curl. So if you usually curl from 10 am to 12 noon, that you book at that time, or, if you normally curl Tuesday evenings, that you book at this time. This will not be an absolute (and you can book other times), however, if you do book at a time when you would not normally curl, you may be “bumped” by someone who books that does curl at that time typically.

* We currently have 32 ice times a day with over 400 members to serve. There may be times when repeat weekly bookings may be asked to forfeit one of their times for another person or group so that this program can serve as much of our membership as possible.

* Given we have so many members who wish to access ice, we ask that members keep within their membership profiles and ice reservations.

*If cancelling please cancel as much in advance so the club has an opportunity to offer the ice time to someone else.

Please be kind and gentle with our staff as we move through these challenging times.

Thank you….. stay safe and take good care of each other.

2022 55+ Winter Games ( was to be hosted in Cornwall) Cancelled

Planning for the 2022 Cornwall Winter Games began in the fall of 2021. The host committee and 55+ Games Society board were both optimistic that this event would be the return of 55+ Games events in PEI. Unfortunately, due to the presence of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, cases in the province have sky rocketed. Due to this surge in cases, the committee and board were faced with once again making the call to cancel the 55+ Games. With this cancellation, the 55+ Games Society along with the host communities have had to cancel a total of 4 Games, one in 2020, two in 2021, and now one in 2022.

The 55+ Games Society board sincerely thanks the host communities, employees, and volunteers who have worked with us to try and put on these events safely. With the uncertainty around COVID-19 and the fact that these events deal with a vulnerable population, it has not been possible to offer our normal programming.

The board will continue to work to keep the PEI 55+ Games Society present in the province and known amongst the 55+ population. Early planning is in the works to have the 2022 Summer Games go in Kensington in September. We are hopeful the 55+ Games will make a return in the near future. Until then, be sure to follow all Public Health guidelines and stay safe!

Curl PEI Postpones the 2023 PEI Canada Games Curling Trials

The Canada Games is an amazing opportunity for all athletes and coaches who have the opportunity to attend.  The process to get to a Canada Games is an opportunity in and of itself;  for our future elite curlers to train, develop and spark that interest to be the best they can be.  

With sport being paused in PEI for the past four weeks, the curlers have not had the opportunity to be on the ice to hone their skills.  As the 2023 Canada Games Curling Trials are only weeks away,  the Curl PEI Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone this event to allow the teams time to return to the ice and continue with their development.

The event was scheduled to be held at the Silver Fox Entertainment Complex February 2-6, 2022 and was to decide PEI’s two training teams for the 2023 Canada Games.  Curl PEI will evaluate the situation when the current restrictions to sport are lifted.

Club extends sympathies on the passing of Gordie Lank

Cornwall Curling Club members were saddened to hear of the passing of Gordon (Gordie) Lank, who was integral to the success of our Club over the years, as the MLA who helped get the funding together for it, and cut the ribbon at the opening, as a curler, former Club president and later manager, a Board member many times and an organizer of many events, including a visit by the Scottish curlers, along with our 20th anniversary celebrations. Back in 1993, he arranged a deal with the bank to refinance our mortgage at a lower rate, and to allow for capital improvements, including new, more efficient lights in the ice area.

Our deepest sympathies to his wife Shirley, who has also been a board member, a women’s president, a coach, and has served many years on the PEI Curling Association, the PEI Ladies Curling Association, and Curl Atlantic, and to the rest of his family.

All of their daughters had their wedding receptions catered by the club, and are also avid curlers, and have also introduced their own children to the sport.

 
Ribbon Cutting: David Miles, Village of Cornwall, MLA Gordon Lank, Club President Robert Burns
 

Dennis King, Premier of Prince Edward Island issued the following statement on the passing of former MLA Gordie Lank:

“Gordie was a fixture in Island agriculture and Island politics for decades. After receiving his early education at the West Royalty School and Prince of Wales College, Gordie and his wife Shirley raised six children and operated a successful mixed farm. Gordie was involved with several community organizations such as the North River Fire Department, the Central Queens Home and School Association, the Hampshire Community Council, the Prince Edward Island Cattlemen’s Association, the Federation of Agriculture, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Cornwall Curling Club.

Gordie was first elected as the MLA for 2nd Queens in 1979 as part of the Angus MacLean government, serving as Chair of the Standing Committee on Agriculture. Re-elected in 1982, Gordie served as Minister of Community and Cultural Affairs and later Minister of Finance and Tourism during the Jim Lee government.

Gordie was a passionate advocate for Island farmers. I was proud to call him a friend and will miss our conversations and his advice. I want to offer my sympathies to Shirley, their children and grandchildren on their loss.”

 
Gordon Lank

2022 Tankard PEI Men’s Ch’ship Cancelled

With the current temporary COVID-19 measures being extended until at least January 24, only days before the 2022 PEI Tankard is scheduled to begin, the Curl PEI Board of Directors, with the safety of the athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers in mind, has made the decision to cancel the Tankard.

The event was scheduled to be held at the Montague Curling Club January 26-30, 2022 and was to decide PEI’s representative for the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier in Lethbridge, AB.

As announced last month, the following process will be followed to determine the Curl PEI representative for the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier:

  1. Curl PEI will invite the PEI team that is leading on the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) as of December 26, 2021 to represent PEI at the national event.  
  2. If that team is not available, with at least 50% of the original roster, Curl PEI will invite the next highest ranking team and so on.

An announcement of the Curl PEI representative will be made when the process is complete.

Curl PEI will continue to consult with health authorities and partners for the remaining events on the 2021-2022 calendar, and remains hopeful that some championship events can be played safely and responsibly this season.

Curl PEI Postpones the 2022 Masters Curling Championships

 

Although the current temporary COVID-19 measures are scheduled to be lifted on January 17, the Curl PEI Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone the 2022 PEI Masters Curling Championships, for curlers age 60+. Without knowing what restrictions may still be in place next week it was felt this decision was the best option to ensure the safety of the athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers.

The event was scheduled to be held at the Western Community Curling Club January 19-23, 2022.  As there are no immediate time constraints to have this event played right away, Curl PEI will attempt to reschedule the provincial event later in the season.

Curl PEI will continue to consult with health authorities and partners for the remaining events on the 2021-2022 calendar and remains hopeful that some championship events can be played safely and responsibly.

Cornwall Curling Club adds world junior curling champion Lauren Lenentine to facility’s official name (SaltWire Media)

(By Jason Simmonds)

CORNWALL, P.E.I. — The rebranding of the Cornwall Curling Club is now complete, and the new name includes a world champion.

A small ceremony on Jan. 5 featured the unveiling of the Cornwall Curling Club, Home of World Champion Lauren Lenentine.

“It’s really special,” said the 21-year-old daughter of Robbie and Jennifer Lenentine of New Dominion, P.E.I. “I started (curling) here when I was seven. Ever since then, they have been so supportive, and I really appreciate it.”


“It’s really special. I started (curling) here when I was seven. Ever since then, they have been so supportive, and I really appreciate it.”

– Lauren Lenentine


Lenentine is a two-time world junior champion with Team Canada. She joined Nova Scotia’s Kaitlyn Jones rink as the fifth player for the 2018 world championship and played lead on the 2020 world junior championship rink, skipped by Mackenzie Zacharias from Manitoba.

The Cornwall Curling Club: Home of World Champion Lauren Lenentine!!

Wednesday was an INCREDIBLY exciting and emotional day here at 29 Cornwall Road-the Cornwall Civic Centre….the Cornwall Curling Club!!!

Our club, along with our partners in recreation the Town of Cornwall PEI, were so pleased to declare that we are…

 “The Cornwall Curling Club~ Home of World Champion Lauren Lenentine’!!

While our club and the Town of Cornwall had hoped for a grand celebration that would welcome the entire community, and our membership, to celebrate this wonderful and special occasion… we were unable to do so during these unusual times.

Many …many….were missed, but given this project has been on hold since Lauren and Team Canada won the World Junior Championships in Russia in 2020, we felt it was time to celebrate as Lauren represents our club and our province on Manitoba’s Provincial Champions Team Zacharias as they prepare for the 2022 Scotties Tournament of Hearts!!

Lauren was incredibly touched as her special plaque was presented, and she offered her gratitude to so many people…it would be a challenge to note everyone here….but during an especially emotional moment, she noted how kind and generous the club and club members have been to her over the years, and it has helped to nurture the confidence and belief in herself and her dreams. And that she appreciates it so much …

Lauren noted that her love of curling was supported at her home club by the Junior Programming, and appreciated coaches and mentors that provided instruction and such enthusiasm. She thanked her amazing coaches over the years, particularly the very talented and incredible coach Mr. Pat Quilty. Lauren shared her love for the club and made special mention of former Club Manager Beverly McCormick and the entire membership, who always provide a welcoming space for Lauren so she could get on the ice and practice the game she loved! Lauren curled on ice created by Cornwall’s former Ice Maker Lance Lowther and she noted great reflections of practicing for many hours on the ice.

Lauren extended a heartfelt thank you to the Town of Cornwall for their partnership and commitment to curling as a part of the wonderful recreation programs in Cornwall. Lauren also noted that there have been many many talented curlers who have curled at the club and continue to curl at the club. She has been honoured to have some really talented and cherished teammates, and many exceptional mentors and former Champions in PEI. Lauren really took an extra pause and moment to acknowledge that our province has so many talented curlers, and she is honoured to be among them. 

Lenentine family

Lauren’s family joined us of course, including Lauren’s Mom and Dad, Jennifer and Robbie Lenentine…Along with Lauren’s sister Ella (who is a talented and dedicated volunteer at the club!), Lauren’s grandparents, Club Members Hazen Lenentine and his wife Ann.
Hazen shared a special toast and raised a glass to both of his granddaughters Lauren and Ella~  sharing how proud he is of these young curlers. Hazen also thanked his fellow members for their support of Lauren and Ella, and for their camaraderie.

Also present was Lauren’s very special Auntie Barb….And it is, without doubt, we felt the presence of Lauren’s very cherished grandparents, the late Carolyn and Jim Molyneaux. Carolyn and Jim were a wonderful part of the community of Cornwall and of the Club. They were incredibly proud of their grandchildren.

Cory Stevenson

The Town of Cornwall was enthusiastically represented by Deputy Mayor Cory Stevenson and Counsellor Judy Herlihy. Deputy Mayor Stevenson congratulated Lauren, on behalf of the Town to Cornwall and the community,  on her exceptional accomplishments. He noted how proud the growing and thriving community is to be a part in such a successful club, and how proud the Town of Cornwall is of all of the recreation opportunities the town is able to offer~ thanks to special community spirit and wonderful employees and staff.

Chris

Past-President of the Cornwall Curling Club and Project Co-Chair, Chris MacDougall acted as a Master of Ceremony, while Club President Shauna McGill and Club Vice President Debbie Rhodenhizer also were in attendance.

Shauna

Shauna extended a big congratulations to Lauren on behalf of the membership and noted how proud we all are of Lauren. Shauna noted the history, special spirit, and club culture at the Cornwall Curling Club and how Lauren’s accomplishments are a wonderful part of that community culture.

 

The Cornwall Curling Club has always offered a club environment that is second to none. It is warm and welcoming and we offer such diversity in our programming. This is credit is to the deep history and commitment of many over the years….from those who have founded the club, such as Club Member (and Molyneaux and Lenentine family cherished friend) Mr. Roy Coffin, and all of those who have given their time and heart in providing a place where everyone can enjoy the benefits of recreation and community….

And some of those….
 can even pursue their dreams…

Congratulations Lauren on being a World Champion!!  We are cheering you on at the 2022 Scotties Tournament of Hearts!!

We are so honoured to be the HOME CLUB of World Champion ~ Lauren Lenentine !!

Return to Play update

A Note to Members of the Cornwall Curling Club

Jan. 4, 2022

Fellow Members:

The Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) has instituted restrictions that continue to have a major impact on Cornwall Curling Club operations.

These restrictions came into effect on Friday 17 December 2021 and today have been extended to 17 January 2022.

In short, CPHO has advised that:

“Indoor sport and recreational activities continue to be paused for Island children under the age of 12 years, including organized sports, tournaments, competitions, games, team training and practices; League play and practices for individuals over the age of 12 are paused. No teams can play games or get together for competitions.”

What does this mean for you the members at this time?

“The Club will continue to offer the “Members’ Ice Time” program, in accordance with CPHO guidance, until Friday, January 14th utilizing the same schedule that was in place prior to the Christmas/ New Year break.

While we are unable to offer any “team” ice sharing, we can offer at least some ice time for members to throw some stones and get some exercise.

Please call the club to book your ice times at 902-566-4427 or email cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca

We are hopeful that we can return to regular League play, with CPHO approval,  on Monday 17 January but we are also looking at what the long-term impacts of these restrictions will have on Club operations if they extend past 17 January.

Our overriding focus continues to be the health and safety of all that enter the Club.

When the CPHO revises their guidelines, the Cornwall Curling Club will also revise our guidelines and Operational Plans.

We do have some availability for tomorrow at all times…
Please see below for times and guidelines.

While we are not able to yet offer any “team” ice sharing … we are pleased that we can offer at least some ice for members to throw some stones and get some exercise….and a break from being at home.

Please call the club to book your ice times at 902-566-4427 or email cornwallcurling@eastlink.ca .

Members Ice Time’ is available to members and any of those members who are in their “steady ten”(See book tomes below) will resume January 3rd.

What times can I book “Members Ice Time”?

You can book “Members Ice Time” Monday to Friday, in one hour blocks, at the following times:

10:00am-11:00am

11:00am-12noon

12:30pm-1:30pm

1:30pm-2:30pm

4:00pm-5:00pm

5:00pm-6:00pm

Thursday, January 6th :closed at 5:00pm.

Who’s can I share a sheet of ice with?

You can book a sheets of ice independently, or you can book a group of 8 who are within your “steady ten”.

What does steady ten mean ?
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO

https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/news/additional-public-health-measures-to-limit-the-number-of-contacts-31-new-cases-of-covid-19

Personal Gatherings: When you curl in a group of “up to 8” (as per our current club operations guidelines) during our ‘Members’ Ice Time’ with others (vs independently) it is considered a “personal gathering”.

As defined by CPHO:
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO

So basically CPHO (with the goal of public safety and “intent to minimize contacts”) would like you to pick ten people, in addition to your household, to spend time with at “personal gatherings” overall all in life.

How that relates to curling:
As mentioned, curling with up to 8 curlers is considered a “personal gathering”. Who you curl with should be a part of your LIFE “steady ten”.

The intention of this guideline is to allow families or very close personal friends (that you have identified as your “steady ten” cohort in life) to share a sheet of ice.
From CPHO:

“Activities with up to a steady 10 personal gathering limit permitted (e.g. family going bowling, or curling) – recognizing the intent of the current measures is to minimize contacts.”

This initiative was implemented in an effort to offer our members an opportunity to stay active safely during these unusual times, and has been approved (based on conditions listed) by the CPHO and our Club Board of Directors.

The below conditions are mandatory:

*Each sheet can be booked for no more than 8 people in a group.
* Those in your group of 8 or less MUST be considered a “close contact/“a part of your steady 10” as defined by CPHO.
* Each booking will require that everyone in your group sign a disclaimer noting the following: that you are curling with what you have self -identified “close contacts / steady 10” according to the terms and definition of the office of the Chief Public Health Office. Along with a disclaimer that you are not required to self isolate for any reason. (This last point was on our CPHO contact tracing document last season as well).
* Sheets of ice will be booked in one hour increments , however if there is no other booing behind you, your group may stay an extra hour.
*All curlers must social distance at all times.
* The club will maintain a 50% capacity to our posted capacity limit.
* We ask that curlers book during the times that they would normally curl. So if you usually curl from 10am to 12 noon, that you noon at that time. Or if you normally curl Tuesday evenings, that you book at this time. This will not be an absolute (and you can book other times), however , if you do book at a time when you would not normally curl, you may be “bumped” by someone who books that does curl at that time typically.

This program will start after ice maintenance/flood and run until until January 8th when it is hoped that CPHO restrictions are lifted.

*If demand for ice succeeds the hours and days noted, we will review the hours and adjust accordingly.

Who’s can I share a sheet of ice with?

You can book a sheets of ice independently, or you can book a group of 8 who are within your “steady ten”.

What does steady ten mean ?
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO

https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/news/additional-public-health-measures-to-limit-the-number-of-contacts-31-new-cases-of-covid-19

Personal Gatherings: When you curl in a group of “up to 8” (as per our current club operations guidelines) during our ‘Members’ Ice Time’ with others (vs independently) it is considered a “personal gathering”.

As defined by CPHO:
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO

So basically CPHO (with the goal of public safety and “intent to minimize contacts”) would like you to pick ten people, in addition to your household, to spend time with at “personal gatherings” overall all in life.

How that relates to curling:
As mentioned, curling with up to 8 curlers is considered a “personal gathering”. Who you curl with should be a part of your LIFE “steady ten”.

The intention of this guideline is to allow families or very close personal friends (that you have identified as your “steady ten” cohort in life) to share a sheet of ice.
From CPHO:

“Activities with up to a steady 10 personal gathering limit permitted (e.g. family going bowling, or curling) – recognizing the intent of the current measures is to minimize contacts.”

This initiative was implemented in an effort to offer our members an opportunity to stay active safely during these unusual times, and has been approved (based on conditions listed) by the CPHO and our Club Board of Directors.

The below conditions are mandatory:

*Each sheet can be booked for no more than 8 people in a group.
* Those in your group of 8 or less MUST be considered a “close contact/“a part of your steady 10” as defined by CPHO.
* Each booking will require that everyone in your group sign a disclaimer noting the following: that you are curling with what you have self -identified “close contacts / steady 10” according to the terms and definition of the office of the Chief Public Health Office. Along with a disclaimer that you are not required to self isolate for any reason. (This last point was on our CPHO contact tracing document last season as well).
* Sheets of ice will be booked in one hour increments , however if there is no other booing behind you, your group may stay an extra hour.
*All curlers must social distance at all times.
* The club will maintain a 50% capacity to our posted capacity limit.
* We ask that curlers book during the times that they would normally curl. So if you usually curl from 10am to 12 noon, that you noon at that time. Or if you normally curl Tuesday evenings, that you book at this time. This will not be an absolute (and you can book other times), however , if you do book at a time when you would not normally curl, you may be “bumped” by someone who books that does curl at that time typically.

This program will start after ice maintenance/flood and run until until January 8th when it is hoped that CPHO restrictions are lifted.

The Food Bank Elves say Thank You to Cornwall Curling Club Members!

Well….. the busy Cornwall Food Bank Elf (and Cornwall Curling Club member!), the personable and wonderful Eugene Murphy dropped by 29 CORNWALL Road today to pick up some donations for the food bank. The donations were generously donated to by our members as a part of our 2nd Annual Food Drive.

Today Eugene brought another elf along with him~ his lovely wife Paula!

It was so special to catch up with the Murphies… married for almost 53 years (he was smitten right away!), two wonderful children… who they are so very proud of~ a Physiotherapist, and a teacher (like her Mom and Dad!) , and three grandchildren they adore !

Paula shared some experienced insight on being a middle teacher for many years , and Eugene (always a fun story teller!) reflected back on the carefree days of university life!

The conversation was reciprocal and easy, and was a sweet interlude of lives lived apart that were brought together by….

Community.

This is our club. Beautiful people doing good deeds.

Eugene noted he was so overwhelmed and touched by our club’s Food Bank Drive response … noting the generosity of our members has been so very touching and much needed.

Today Eugene and Paula picked up a filled envelope that had been previously presented to Daytime Committee Chair Paul Durant from the O’Connor Glass Cornwall Classic Committee Chairs, Robbie and Jennifer Lenentine.

Eugene and Paula also picked up an envelope of donated funds from our generous members ~ many who donated their refunded Christmas luncheon funds.

The kindness and generosity of our club members has been nothing short of exceptional.

Thank you to members Ernie Dunsford, Paul Doresy, Jean Anderson, Kimball Blanchard, and Debbie Rhodenhizer for your kind donations.
Thank you to David and Margaret O’Connor for sponsoring the Cornwall Classic, giving us an opportunity to raise funds for those in need.
Thank you to Jennifer and Robbie Lenentine for organizing the event, and your efforts in raising funds for the food bank.

We have the best club members.

Including the cheerful and kind elves, Eugene and Paula, who visited us today!

Thanks to Debbie R. and everyone who helped with our “Honour Wall” plaque project!

If you’ve visited the Cornwall Curling Club, you will undoubtedly have noticed the “Honour Wall”, located on the left side of the staircase as you enter, of our many provincial through to world champions. This replaced the large vinyl banners hanging in the ice house, which long-time members will remember. While impressive, they affected the air-flow, gathered dust, were high up and therefore hard to hang, and we were out of room for them. We installed the first of the new plaques a few years ago, and listed some of our champs, but more names needed to be on it. This turned out to be a huge project, and, after partial attempts by several others, Debbie Rhodenhizer was able to complete it, in her role as Facilities Chair last season!

Debbie Rhodenhizer and our “Honour Wall”

Thanks also go to Club Member John McKay in the production of the plaques, and to many others who helped provide and verify the information.

Many club members have shared lovely and positive comments about the plaques, with one person noting how proud they are to see their grandchildren’s names on the plaques1

A big thank you to Debbie, John and everyone else who helped, for the hours they have spent on this project to acknowledge our top competitive teams throughout the years!

Members Ice Time

A Note to Members
Re: Personal gatherings and “Steady 10” relating to our “Members Ice Time” program.

Personal Gatherings: When you curl in a group of “up to 8” (as per our current club operations guidelines) during our ‘Members’ Ice Time’ with others (vs independently) it is considered a “personal gathering”.

As defined by CPHO:
“Personal gatherings are limited to 10 people plus household members; this is a ‘steady’ 10 people and should not be 10 different people each day.” -CPHO

So basically CPHO (with the goal of public safety and “intent to minimize contacts”) would like you to pick ten people, in addition to your household, to spend time with at “personal gatherings” overall all in life.

How that relates to curling:
As mentioned, curling with up to 8 curlers is considered a “personal gathering”. Who you curl with should be a part of your LIFE “steady ten”.

The intention of this guideline is to allow families or very close personal friends (that you have identified as your “steady ten” cohort in life) to share a sheet of ice.
From CPHO:

“Activities with up to a steady 10 personal gathering limit permitted (e.g. family going bowling, or curling) – recognizing the intent of the current measures is to minimize contacts.”

To summarize:
The intent is to allow activity on the ice for exercise and mental health benefits in one of two segments/options:

1. Independent actively: one person, one sheet of ice.
or
2. Steady 10 personal gathering activity : One sheet of ice with up to 8 people who are a part of your “steady ten “ personal bubble cohort. This steady ten is not related to just a curling group steady 10, but your life overall.

We have many members that are couples, or families, multi-generational family members, and/or have very good close personal friends in their “steady ten”.
These groups are what the booking for up to 8 people per sheet is intended for.

We are very happy that the majority of our members understand these conditions and many have taken the time to book ice under the guidelines in order to stay active and #keepcurling.

We do also understand that, as with any new measures or program in these unusual times, we may have to provide reminders or further explanation of such guidelines.

If you have any questions, or would like to book “Members’ Ice Time” , please reach out on our Club Manager at 902-566-4427.

“Members Ice Time” is as follows:
*Tuesday Dec 21st 10:00am to 8:00pm (last booking time is for the 7:00pm to 8:00pm spot)
*Wednesday Dec 22nd 10:00am to 8:00pm
( (last booking time is for the 7:00pm to 8:00pm spot)
* Thursday Dec 23rd 10:00am to 8:00pm
(last booking time is for the 7:00pm to 8:00pm spot)
* Friday Dec 23rd 10:00am to 12:00noon
(last booking time is for the 11:00am to 12:00noon spot)

Tyler MacKenzie and Laura Arsenault rinks win Wed. Eve. Ladder League Round One

Round one of the Wednesday evening Ladder League came to an exciting conclusion this week.

Team Arsenault

Going into the final “B” Pool night, the Joe Callaghan team were in the lead with 5 wins, while their opponents, the Laura Arsenault rink, as well as the Josh McInnis-skipped “Legion of Broom” squad, had four. Arsenault beat Callaghan, giving them both 5 wins, while McInnis lost to the Joostema (Team HGWZ) rink. This means that the Arsenault rink win the round, and the gift certificates from sponsor Peake & McInnis, as they beat the other 5-win team.

Team Tyler MacKenzie

Up the ladder in the “A” pool, the Tyler MacKenzie and Mark MacDonald teams both had 5 wins, but MacKenzie won their round-robin game against MacDonald, giving them the prize from sponsor JR’s Pizza. 

Moving down the ladder from “A” to “B” for round two will be the Greg Groves and Hank Kamphuis teams with two wins, plus the Rob Gallant foursome, who were tied with the Paul Neima team with three wins, but lost to Neima in their round robin match. 

Climbing the ladder from “B” to “A” will be the Arsenault and Callaghan teams with five wins, plus the Josh McInnis team with four (Amber Robb also had 4 wins but lost to McInnis in their game).

Here are our Round Two Draw Sponsors:

A Message for All Cornwall Curling Members and User Groups

A Message to our Members and Community User Groups

The Government of PEI and the Chief Public Health Officer issued a number of directives on Friday 17 December 2021 regarding the current COVID-19 situation. One of these directives that directly impacts the Club is the “pause” placed on all indoor Sport and Recreation activities regardless of age; this includes all organized sports, tournaments, competitions, games, team training and practices during the period 18 December – 8 January 2022.

We are aware that this is a very dynamic situation and that this directive may be subject to change. Rest assured that the Health and Safety of our Members and Community user groups are our prime concern and that the Cornwall Curling club will be ready to welcome you back when we are allowed to do so.

Fellow Members: As you are all probably aware, the Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) has instituted new restrictions that will come into effect on Friday 17 December. These restrictions will have an impact on how we conduct ourselves while in the Club.

In short, CPHO has advised that “multiple cohorts of 50 participants are permitted at a recreational facility over the span of a day as long as physical distancing of 2m/6ft is maintained between different cohorts and during short periods of interaction at shared areas like entry/exit points, washrooms, concession stands, hallways, etc”.

This is the policy that we were operating under at the conclusion of last season, so we should be able to have a fairly smooth transition back to it. I do expect that there will be a few small hiccups as we reinstitute this policy so I ask that you be respectful of staff and other members if they remind us of the required adherence to this policy change.

To recap the 2 Cohort policy:
Members playing in the first draw of their league will utilize the Fireplace side of the lounge and use the round table designated for their game and enter and exit the ice surface via the Sheet 1 door. When accessing the Bar, please utilize the window on the right hand side.

Members playing in the second draw of their league will utilize the Office side of the lounge and use the rectangular table designated for their game and enter and exit the ice surface via the Sheet 4 door. When accessing the Bar, please utilize the window on the left hand side.

If at any time you notice a lineup of more than 6 people at the Bar, please be respectful of people’s personal space and wait at your table for the lineup to clear.

The wearing of non-medical masks/face coverings remains mandatory in indoor public places. Masks/face coverings may be removed when seated at a table while eating or drinking and once you go to the ice surface. Masks MUST be worn at all other times while seated without food or drink and whenever you are moving around the lounge, washrooms and locker room areas of the Club.

At this time CPHO has also decreed that “no tournaments are permitted in PEI with more than 50 participants mixing over the span of the day regardless of age of participants. Tournaments can proceed under the 50-person cohort rule”. This is essentially the same restriction that was in place for tournaments last winter. Please see our Manager for further details if you have an event coming up in the near future.

Our overriding focus continues to be the health and safety of all that enter the Club. When the CPHO revises their guidelines, the Cornwall Curling Club will also revise our guidelines and Operational Plans. We ask that everyone continue to be patient and respectful of each other as we continue to enjoy this curling season.
