A Week Ahead at the RGC

September 20, 2017

Dear Members,

It’s truly beginning to feel like fall in our city. Between our Fall Programs being in full swing, the surprise of yesterday’s brief snowfall, and the fall equinox happening this Friday, it’s apparent that the beginning of the holiday season is upon us as October and Thanksgiving quickly approach. Our first Sunday Brunch buffet of the season is happening this Sunday and reservations are still available for this sure to be delicious Summer Harvest brunch that will feature live entertainment. If you can’t make it to this brunch, we have more lined up—the next one is on Sunday, October 8. As always, the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend will see our Thanksgiving-themed Sunday Brunch buffet as well as a hearty Thanksgiving turkey dinner to enjoy as we give thanks amongst friends and family. Whether you join us for Thanksgiving Brunch, Thanksgiving Dinner, or both, I’m sure that our RGC Culinary Team will be pulling out all the stops for these meals. Reservations for all of the above can be made at Member Services.

Tonight our Food & Beverage and Sales & Marketing Teams will be headed to the Shaw Conference Centre to represent the RGC at the Alberta Food Processors Association FEASTival of Fine Chefs. Always an amazing event, this evening of delicious food sees some of Edmonton's best restaurants and culinarians coming together to provide guests with a four-course meal that features ingredients sourced right here from Alberta. I along with my wife and some of the other Senior Managers will be in attendance to show our support, and I hope to see many of our Members there as well. I wish our Team the best of luck tonight.

Yesterday the Ladies’ Locker Room saw a bit of an upgrade when the old furniture in the vanity area was replaced with sleek new chairs and armchairs. I’ve been told that the new pieces have modernized the area nicely, so I hope that our female Members enjoy them! On the note of the Ladies’ Locker Room, I would like to bring to your attention that on Monday, September 25 from 8-10am, the Ladies’ Locker Room will have some of our male Maintenance Workers present in order to carry out some necessary plumbing repairs. In an effort to protect the privacy of our female Members, we ask for them to please plan their visits to the Club during those times accordingly, and we invite them to use the Family Locker Room and Female All-Ages Locker Room instead. We do apologize for any inconvenience these repairs may cause, but appreciate your understanding as we work quickly to repair the plumbing.

Our Membership Committee and Sales & Marketing Team have a great incentive on if you’re thinking about upgrading your current Standard Active Membership to a Personal Transferable Membership. Transferable Memberships give you the ability to sell your Club Membership and receive a return on your investment should you ever choose to leave the RGC. The typical cost to upgrade your Membership is $3,500 +GST, but if 20 or more Members sign up to upgrade before October 13, 2017, those Members will receive the upgrade for 50% off! We’re only six Members away from making this deal happen, so if you would like to learn more about Transferable Memberships, the Upgrade Group Sale, or if you would like to sign up to upgrade, please contact Elizabeth Kendall, Director of Sales & Marketing, at Elizabeth.Kendall@royalglenora.com.

I would like to thank everyone who came out to Park A Palooza last Thursday to help us cut the ribbon on our updated Playground. Seeing the stampede of excited Junior Members rush to the Playground once the ribbon had been cut brought me, and I’m sure all of the parents in attendance, such immense joy. I hope that everyone takes some time to enjoy the Playground before the snow flies! As well, basketballs are now available to be signed out for use at the Member Services desk, so make sure to take advantage of that as well.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Kind Regards,
Dustin McAvoy
