The Nova Scotia Curling Association's Return to Play Plan has been approved by the Province. This is great news in that it is the first step that had to be taken in order for Clubs to consider opening and getting back on the ice for this coming season.

If you want to have a look, the plan is available on the Nova Scotia Curling Association website. CLICK HERE Also available are a series of questions and answers about the plan. CLICK HERE

What does this mean for the Berwick Curling Club?

Each Club is different in many ways...different numbers of sheets, different square footages in the lounge, etc. Each club is therefore required to come up with their own plan on how to re-open. The plans do not need to be submitted for approval...but they are subject to inspection. Therefore, any plan for the Club must line up with the NSCA Return to Play Plan. If you review the NSCA plan, keep in mind that the plan for the BCC may be different in certain ways...however, the NSCA plan will give you an early look at what curling will look like this season.

Over the course of the next two months, we will do the following:

1) Finalize a Return to Play plan for the Berwick Curling Club that will include how things will run both on and off the ice. Once the plan is approved by the Board of Directors, it will be shared with the membership.

2) Initiate a survey of our membership that will be designed to tell us whether you intend to curl this season or not.

Ultimately, I feel 100% confident that we can create a plan for the Club that meets, and in many cases exceeds, recommended guidelines. However, even if we have a great plan, if enough people choose not to curl, the projected financial impact may be great enough that it will make more sense not to open. That's why we need to understand clearly how many people will be curling this season.

Should anyone have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out through the Club's e-mail.
