A Week Ahead at the RGC

August 15, 2018

Dear Members,

I hope you are all doing well and are not suffering too much from all this smoke! While the fires continue in BC, I strongly urge our Members to take the necessary precautions to protect yourselves and your loved ones including limiting the amount of time you spend outdoors at the Club. If you wish to use the outdoor courts, the outdoor loungers, or let your kids use the park during the air quality advisory, we hope you understand you will be doing so at your own risk. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Hopefully things begin to clear up in BC, and subsequently here in Edmonton!

Pete Goodings, Steven Graham, and Bob Grynoch returned recently from the World’s Squash Championship in Virginia, USA. The three players had the opportunity to play alongside international champions, both women and men, between the ages of 35 and 80. Although Pete ended up injuring himself during a match, he said the experience was one he would never forget. Congratulations to the three of you! You make the RGC proud. For more detailed results, please read the ‘Squash’ section of your newsletter.

A friendly reminder to sign up for this year’s Pooches in the Pool event! Taking place August 26, this pup-friendly event is open to all Members and their canine pals and will take place right before we shut down the Aquatics Centre for annual maintenance. This event is safe for dogs and Members, and all funds raised will be donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS). A representative from SCARS and a local veterinarian will be on site during the event to answer any questions you may have. For any questions at all, please contact Carol Warne at carol.warne@royalglenora.com. Carol will be the Senior Manager on site for the event. Hope to see many of you and your pups there!

Continuing with the Aquatics closure, you will have noticed signage going up around different areas of the Club with the project timeline. As well, the information has been on our social media and in your weekly newsletter. If you have any questions at all about the project phases, timeline, what work is being complete, etc., please contact Dave Gray at facilities@royalglenora.com.

As much as we do not want to think about summer ending, I do want to let you know about two important things happening. On Monday, August 20, Fall Registration will close on our GameTime site. If you have any last-minute questions, I suggest you contact one of our many Professionals or our Recreation Manager, Charlene, at recmanager@royalglenora.com. Additionally, I am happy to announce that we will be hosting a Back to School Kick-Off Party on Friday, September 7! This party takes place in three parts – a Playground and Bouncy Castle party followed by a dinner buffet and a movie night. Registration is now open through Member Services, so sign up today!

Have a great rest of your week and weekend.
