Barring any border issues, the new compressor is due to arrive in Ottawa from the United States sometime on Monday, November 3, 2014. We have already arranged installation and testing of the compressor on an urgent basis and expect the compressor will be installed within 2 days after we receive it in Ottawa.
Unfortunately, we were unable to maintain the ice we installed in September and we will need to reinstall it. This means that we must flood and freeze the sand base underlying the ice surface, install the base layer of ice and hacks, paint the ice, and complete the installation. This process will take about ten days. We will return to league and rental play as soon as the ice is playable.
Mindful of time lost while the ice plant has been under repair, the Board adopted several measures to maximize curling opportunities for members. At the last Board meeting, the Board decided to cancel two club bonspiels during which league play is normally suspended (i.e. the Christmas Bonspiel and the Funspiel), withdraw ice from three outside bonspiels (the OVCA Senior and Mixed Bonspiels and the Crystal Heart Bonspiel) and to extend the season an additional two weeks. These measures, along with other adjustments to be announced by each Division, should allow most members to enjoy almost as many games as they experience during a normal curling season.
Check our website at: http://www.cityviewcurling.ca for further updates as the ice installation process unfolds.
On behalf of the Board, I regret the inconvenience suffered by our members and renters and thank all of you for your patience, understanding and support.
