The Beausejour Curling Club is pleased to be hosting the 2022 Strathcona Trust Senior Mens and Womens Provincial Championships from March 16-21, 2022.
The initial meeting to form committees will be held on Monday, November 1 at 7:30 pm in the Icebreaker Lounge. If you are interested in helping with this event, please feel free to attend. If you are interested but unable to make this meeting, please email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward your information on to the committee.
Once committee chairs have been named, more details and information on specific volunteer opportunities will be made available.
We are proud to be hosting a U18 Mens and Womens Berth Bonspiel from Nov 11-14. We will need volunteers for various jobs including:
- helping the Covid screeners at the SunGro entrance
- ringing the bell for practices/games and entering game scores online
- helping the icemakers between draws
- bar help (Serve It Safe certification required)
Specific shift times/dates will be determined once the draw schedule has been given to us by Curl Manitoba. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the club at email@example.com with your area of interest and availability.
If you have not yet completed your registration, please take care of it as soon as possible. Contact Jody at jodynicole13 at gmail dot com if you need more information.
Etransfers should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and the security answer should be "curling". Please put your name and other details in the message section.
If you still have lounge coupons (aka bar bucks) from the 2019-2020 season, the expiry date has been extended to Dec 31, 2021.
The Beausejour Curling Club and the SunGro Centre will be following all current Public Health Orders from the Province of Manitoba.
As of right now, this means that everyone aged 18 and over must be fully vaccinated to enter our facility. SunGro Centre staff will be verifying vaccination status and checking ID at the entrance to the facility. All players and spectators must enter through this front entrance and then leave by the west side entrance (by the ladies change room).
Please note that youth (ages 12-17) are not required to be vaccinated if they are entering the facility to participate in sport activities and leave the facility once their sport is over.
Masks are MANDATORY in the SunGro lobby, change rooms, lower lounge and while entering and exiting the Icebreaker Lounge and the ice shed. Masks are optional in the ice shed and while sitting at tables in the lounge.
Regular curling rules will apply this year (two sweepers allowed) but players are still encouraged to keep distance between teams as much as possible. Handshakes are discouraged.
Continuing from last year, you can now purchase your Asham curling supplies directly through the Beausejour Curling Club. No more running to Winnipeg and your purchases will benefit the club.
What items are available?
Grippers, gripper disks, slider disks, slip-on sliders (full and half), gloves, mitts, socks, broom heads, brooms, and other miscellaneous items are in stock at the club. Check out the display in the Icebreaker Lounge to see all items available as well as prices (note that PST and GST will be added to all purchases).
How do we purchase items?
Items can be purchased during evening league nights through the bartender. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or etransfer to email@example.com. If paying by etransfer, please use “curling” as the security answer and note Asham Purchase in the message section. Please get the bartender to calculate your total including taxes before writing your cheque or sending your etransfer.
If you wish to purchase something outside of league nights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for someone to meet you at the club.
Special Order Items
There are catalogs available on the display that you can take home with you. If you wish to order items from the catalog (such as clothing, shoes, etc), please email us at email@example.com with the item number, description and size/colour (if applicable) and we will contact you with the pricing information prior to placing your order. Special orders must be prepaid via cheque or etransfer. Special order items will be delivered to the club within a week (if they are in stock at Asham).
The club was not completely idle during the 2020-2021 season as Todd and the SunGro staff were busy installing the wheelchair lifts to provide access to the ice surface and main lounge area. Automatic openers were also added to both bathroom doors to provide accessibility there as well. We look forward to welcoming everyone back this fall to our new and fully accessible facility.
Funding for this project was provided by the Province of Manitoba, the Town of Beausejour and the Beausejour Curling Club.
Beausejour Curling Club Mission Statement
The BCC provides, to curlers of all ages and abilities in the Eastman Region, a family oriented experience in an outstanding facility.
We are a 6-sheet club located in the SunGro Centre in Beausejour, Manitoba. Our club includes the Icebreaker Lounge which features a bar with views of all the sheets as well as monitors with overhead views of the far end. There is also a lower viewing area that provides ice-level views.
We have leagues for men, ladies, and mixed teams as well as an after-school program for kids in grades 4 to 8 and drop-in recreational curling on Tuesday mornings for those who just want to have some fun. We are also the host facility for the Curling Academy program run by École Edward Schreyer School for kids in grades 9 to 11.
If you have a question about our club or leagues, please send us a message. To inquire about renting our facility, please contact the SunGro Centre office directly.
