Dear Fellow Curlers:

     The Welland Club is very pleased to have its 2017-18 Membership Application form posted on the \\\"Curling Opportunities\\\" tab above and then to the \\\"Registration\\\" tab here on our web site (   

     The 2016-17 season was a resounding success. Not only did membership increase, the club turned a profit and is now completely debt free. But there is much to do. To maintain our Club’s stability and viability the Board has budgeted to break even this year. The 2017-18 Budget recognized that “the Club must spend beyond nominal inflationary costs. Minimal routine maintenance will be insufficient to ensure a quality curling experience to retain and attract members”. The Budget also identifies an “extraordinary 22.8% statutory increase to minimum wage this fiscal year [which] will cause the Club’s labour costs to increase significantly”.  

    The budget also noted “Membership remains our most troubling and opportunistic challenge.  To that end cost increases must be kept to a minimum [and] bring value to the members”.   The Budget is projecting an increase in membership this year which will increase revenue. This would allow this year’s fee schedule to increase no more than $10.00 per year for returning members (less taxes and OCA fees that’s only 0.5% to the Club).

      The Club is again offering three payment options for many of our playing categories. The application notes Early Fee and Installment Plan Fees must be received by the Club by August 31, 2017. Due to delays in implementing new website software the Club will extend this date to September 15, 2017.

To save costs and keep membership fees low all fees are to be paid by Cheque, debit, E-transfer or cash.

       We sincerely appreciate your support as a past member and hope to see you this season.  Please encourage family, friends and co-workers to our great sport and membership in our club.

      Sincerely Kevin Bailey                                                                                                                     Matt Botden
