QCC Spare and Fifth Curler Policy
If you are a fully paid up member of a regular league, you can spare in any league at no additional cost! ( ie. Monday night open leagues, Tuesday mens league, Wednesday Super League, Thursday night Ladies and Thursday night open)
If circumstances arise that you are unable to play full time on a regular team, but wish to spare during the season, you can pay an annual fee of $150.00. This includes the $20.00 Capital Improvement fee and $14.00 CCA affiliation fees and taxes.
In order to encourage new curlers, there is a provision that permits up to 3 free games as a spare prior to paying the annual fee.
All Fifth players (registered with the Curling Centre Manager) not playing in another registered league are responsible for paying the $20.00 Capital Improvement Fee and $14.00 CCA Affiliation Fee.
Fifth players on a team (registered with the Curling Centre Manager) must also play in another league as a fully paid curler in order to be able to spare in other leagues at no additional cost. If they wish to spare and are not in an additional leagues they are responsible for paying the $150.00 Spare Fee minus the Capital Improvement Fee and CCA Affiliation Fee and taxes = $112.00.
A Registered Spare Board will be posted on our website www.quesnelcurlingclub.com and through the Club Manager at 250 992-5813. This List must be consulted prior to finding a non-registered spare for your team.
The Curling Centre is looking towards all of the Skips in the registered leagues and or the organizers of leagues IE: Seniors and Sunday Fun League to ensure that spare curlers playing on their team or teams are eligible to curl. Please make your spare curlers are aware of this policy and direct them to the Curling Centre Manager for registration if applicable.
We are certainly not trying to discourage curlers from coming out to curl; but at the same time we must ensure that all of the users of the Curling Centre are paying for their curling privileges in a fair and equitable manner.
