2017 Pre-Registration for Returning Curlers is Open!

Hello Riverdale member,
Hope you’ve been enjoying your summer so far!  With Pride and Canada Day now behind us, we figured you’d probably be ready to start thinking about next season!
Update for the 2017/18 Season:
As with any business, we have seen increased costs year over year, primarily due to increases in ice rental fees and costs to hold our annual banquet. For the last 9 years, these cost increases have continued to be absorbed by the league, which has allowed us to keep member fees the same. However, the time has come to increase our member fees in order to maintain a balanced budget.
The 2017/18 fees will be as follows:
1 payment of $300, or
2 payments of $165 (total = $330)
The Executive Committee will continue to assess annual ice fee increases and adjust member fees on a more regular basis in order to avoid large increases in the future.  Should you have any questions about member fees, please feel free to reach out to Murray or me.
Also, last year we sent out a survey to members, and wanted to thank you for the feedback – our response rate was great!  A summary of the results can be found here, which we have taken into consideration when planning our upcoming season.  Look out for more communications from the executive throughout the year as we work towards continually improving the league, and as always, feel free to reach out to us at any time!
  1. Pre-registration for returning Riverdale curlers will start JULY 10, 2017 and will close on August 31, 2017. Priority will be given to teams with 3 or more returning members – teams with fewer than 3 returning members will be prioritized on a pre-registration waiting list until the end of the pre-registration period, based on the time and date the online registration is received.
    • Pre-registration must be completed by ONE team member using the following link: http://toronto.gaycurl.ca/riverdale-pre-registration/. You will be asked to provide your team members’ contact information; this will help us ensure our contact list is current – please make every effort to ensure all contact information is filled out accurately. Please note: online pre-registration requests, and automated acknowledgement emails, are NOT confirmations of registration. I will confirm your team’s pre-registration no later than September 8, 2017.
    • Once your team’s pre-registration has been confirmed, payment must be made by Interac money transfer, PayPal or cheque/cash to complete your registration.
      • If you wish to pay by Interac money transfer or PayPal, a link will be sent to you once your team’s pre-registration is confirmed.
      • If you wish to pay by cheque, after you have received your pre-registration confirmation, you may mail your cheque to Riverdale Curling League c/o Stephen Courteau, 504-2 Sultan Street, Toronto ON, M5S 1L7.
      • You may also pay by cash or cheque at registration night onSeptember 13, 2017 at Pegasus.
    • A minimum payment of $165 per player must be received by September 13, 2017 in order to complete your registration and secure your team’s spot in the league.
  2. The annual registration night for new curlers will take place on September 13, 2017 at 7:00PM at Pegasus (489 Church Street).
  3. The date for our annual beginners’ clinic is still being scheduled, but will be communicated at a later date.  The first day of curling for Riverdale is October 1, 2017.

If you haven’t already done so, please remember to join our Facebook group follow us on Twitter (@gaycurl), and check out the website regularly for the season calendar, updates and other news.
