 Message [Extract] Sent to Leagure Conveners [posted 5 Aug] for Skip response.   

"Our first step for the season is to decide if we are going to be able to open in the current climate. [Attached is ] the Deer Lodge’s Return to Play guidelines for you [skips]  to look over. Please be aware that these guidelines are subject to change as the recommendations change all the time. Skips, please look this over and talk to your team members to check and see if they are going to be returning to the Deer Lodge this year. If we lose too many curlers it may not be possible to open the club this season.
We are hopeful to have curling this year but we are looking to make sure we will have the curlers before we move into contracts etc." 




Message from President: It comes with a huge amount of disappointment to let you all know that we have decided and been directed by curl MB to close our doors immediately. Official correspondence and details to follow shortly. [posted 2020-03-16  16:10]
