All dues are payable before a member can participate in regular league play. The annual fees include the 'association' fees which the Club turns over to Curling Quebec and Canadian Curling Association.
As a member, you are assigned a number for the purpose of signing Club chits. You may “charge” for food, drinks, merchandise, and Club events under this system. This is a privilege accorded to members and a statement is issued each month detailing expenditures. ALL PAYMENTS ARE DUE UPON RECEIPT. Any payments not received before the issuance of the next statement will be subject to interest charges.
Mail is placed in the wall cabinet to the right of the ice viewing windows in the main lounge. Any mail not collected will be posted to you.
