Dear Curling Center Member,
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve, I wanted to let you know that we are closing the Curling Center at 4:30pm March 16 through April 6. The City is also closing the Event Center and Community Center through March 31.
What does this mean?
- If you were participating in the Winter 2 league, the last week of league play is cancelled. We will work to issue refunds to those teams.
- Playoff brackets are complete and are currently scheduled to begin April 6.
- Corporate events and other programs are cancelled through the end of the month. We are contacting those impacted to either reschedule for a future date or refund if necessary.
- We will be using this time to do our yearly ice maintenance, so at least you can look forward to fresh ice when you come back.
- USA Curling has postponed the Mixed Nationals Championships, which were scheduled for March 28 – April 4.
We understand that this is disappointing news, but it is important that we do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We love interacting with our members and guests, but we feel this is the best way to keep you healthy and safe.
On social media, we’ve seen some unique ways curlers are coping with the closing of curling clubs around the world. We’d love to see how you’re working on your curling skills at home, so please share with us on our Facebook page.
We also encourage you to take this opportunity to connect in different ways with your community. While we may not be able to throw a double takeout or a draw to the button, we can all be ambassadors of the spirit of curling by helping a neighbor or supporting a local charity.
Many of the Curling Center staff will be working remotely during the closure. If you need anything, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to help. If you are wondering about the Crooked Pint, please call them at 952-361-6794.
We will continue to assess the situation as it evolves and provide updates as they become available.
Until then, stay safe!
Chaska Curling Center Manager
