A Week Ahead at the RGC

April 18, 2018

Dear Members,

I hope you are all having a great week, and are starting to enjoy the warmer weather as I am. This winter has been a long one, so it is great to see so many of you running outside again, using the stairs, and even a few of our Junior Members have been eager to get back onto the Playground despite the dampness. As we transition into the spring, and then the summer, you will notice our Maintenance Team will be very busy as they try to keep up with the aging facility. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we address each leak and spill that our beloved Club throws our way.

Speaking of summer, our next issue of Royal Review is set to go out to Members at the beginning of June! As such, we would love to see more Member submissions. The new format for spring included some fun additions such as a Member Q&A, Board Member spotlight, a delicious recipe, as well as a workout playlist. Do you have a fun idea for an article or feature? Let us know! Email your thoughts and ideas to marketingmanager@royalglenora.com.

Coming up this Friday, we are excited to be showing the massively popular Disney film, Coco. This family favourite follows 12-year-old Miguel as he is transported to the land of the dead, where he seeks the help of his musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living. Join us in the Regal Glen from 6:30-8:15pm. Popcorn and water will be provided. Pre-register today through Member Services.

We have a few other events coming up in F&B. On April 26, Wine Club returns with a session led by Dwayne Bayda from Artisan Wines. The cost is $30/Member. Give Jay or Derek a call at 780.482.0375 to reserve your spots. Following Wine Club, we are excited to be partnering again with the Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview for their annual scotch-themed fundraiser, Scotch Mist. Taking place May 11 here at the RGC, we will be serving a four-course dinner with various Scotch and Whisky pairings. All monies raised go towards supporting projects initiated by Riverview that support youth at risk. Visit riverviewrotary.eventright.com for tickets.

Spots are filling up quickly for our annual Mother’s Day Brunch! Do not wait too much longer to reserve your seats as this event sells out every year. Also, remember that your non-Member friends and family are able to attend. For more information, contact Member Services.

The 2018 Badminton Club Championships are taking place April 30-May 5. Join your fellow Members on badminton courts as you compete for the Club Championship titles! Registration is now open on GameTime, but closes this upcoming Monday, April 23 at 11pm. For more information, please contact Val Loker at badmintonhead@royalglenora.com.

I wanted to quickly remind everyone about a few things myself and others have noticed happening lately. The breezeway is intended for quick drop-offs and pick-ups and for easier access for mothers and seniors. The purpose is not to leave your vehicle and spend time in the Club. Please use the parking lot if you wish to come into the Club for an extended period of time. Additionally, I was made aware of some Members leaving their cars in the parking lot overnight. If you are having a great time up in our Lounge or Pool Patio, that is awesome! Therefore, if you need to leave your vehicle overnight, please let us know. Otherwise, your vehicle may be towed. Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.

One last thing, this Thursday night we will be completing an initial sweep of our parking lot. This will take place overnight. Please make sure you don’t leave your vehicles overnight, or they will be towed at your expense. Thank you.
