A Week Ahead at the RGC


February 14, 2018


Dear Members,

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are spending some much-needed time with your loved ones or close friends on this breezy, and cold Wednesday. For those who are taking advantage of our Sweethearts Dinners tonight, enjoy!
 
The long weekend is coming up and I anticipate it will be a busy one at the Club as we have activities and events planned across all the different areas. Starting Saturday, February 17 and continuing into the long weekend, any guests invited to the Club will not pay any guest fees! On Saturday and Sunday, the Wibit will be in the Pool from 1:30-3:30pm. Much to the pleasure of our younger Members, we are setting up our Bouncy Castle on Sunday from 10am-1pm in the Regal Glen. On Sunday, February 18, our monthly Sunday Brunch returns with an all family spread. There are still spots available so register through Member Services today! Finally, we have a Family Skate planned for the holiday Monday from 12:15-2pm. We hope to see many of you enjoying the long weekend with us at your Club.
 
As our RGC Redevelopment Project Committee continues in their efforts to bring us closer to a potential master redevelopment of our Club, the Member-driven Committee is excited to announce that on February 26 we will be hosting an Open House session to show Members the one design concept. The session will run from 5:30-7pm in the Member Services Lobby. This session serves as an opportunity for you, the Members, to ask the Kennedy Architecture Team how they arrived at a single design concept. In advance of this Open House, there will be a communication from the Committee Chair, Mr. William Milroy, which will include more details on progress made, the single concept design process, as well as a detailed FAQ which includes many important and recurring questions the Members have shared with the Committee and Management. Please keep an eye out for the communication, and more details on the Open House session in the coming days.
 
We are counting down the days to the second iteration of YEG’s Best Athlete on March 2! Our goal this year was to have 100 registrants, and I am pleased to announce that as of today we have 91 kids registered! This includes several non-Member athletes, which is very exciting. We have decided to extend the deadline to this Friday at 10am to allow for any last-minute registrations. As the event has quadrupled in size, we need some additional volunteers. If you will be at the Club March 2 and are available to help for an hour or two, please email our Director of Recreation, Sean Gillen at sean.gillen@royalglenora.com, and let him know! All help is appreciated.
 
As we head into March we are busy planning and preparing for a number of exciting F&B events, including the 5th Annual Hops & Whisky event taking place March 9 here at the RGC. Join us for an evening of tasting unique whiskies and beers from around the world and support the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts and the incredible work they do with artists with developmental disabilities. You will have the opportunity to sample an impressive selection of craft beer and fine whisky, learn about specialty products, participate in an amazing silent auction, and taste some delicious food prepared by some of Edmonton's finest chefs. Grab your ticket today as they are selling fast! Tickets are available for $89 on Eventbrite.
 
As communicated in the February 2, communication to Members, on February 26 the new Tennis Court booking penalties take effect. Copies of the current Tennis Court Booking rules can be found at Member Services or on our website under Recreation Schedules. Rules are currently posted on the Tennis board and the Recreation board in the social entrance hallway.  Additional posters will also be up around the
Club by weeks end. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Recreation, Sean Gillen.
 
A friendly reminder that although the Club is open on Monday, February 19, our Administrative Offices are closed.
 
Have an awesome week, everyone!
