REGISTER NOW FOR THE 2021/22 SEASON
We would like to welcome you back to another Curling Season at Golden Ears Winter Club. You can expect for it to look very similar to the START of last season with the safety and comfort of our members at the forefront.
As noted previously, we have moved to a new on-line registration platform called Curling I/0. By clicking HERE you will find a detailed step-by-step guide on how to register. Feel free to reach out if you require additional assistance. Once you create your “Curler Profile” in Curling I/0 you will never need to do this step again.
The GEWC Board of Directors and Management team completed a thorough analysis of our club’s league fees during the off-season. The focus was to adjust our league fees to a fair market value and ensure the club remains financially viable moving forward. This review was prompted as part of the club’s mandate per our recently renewed operating agreement with the City of Maple Ridge.
Each league rate is based on a “cost per game” model. Daytime rates are $8/Member and $9/Non-Member, and Evening rates are $12/Member and $14/Non-Member. The Curling Canada/Curl BC fee and Club Growth fee remain in addition. Beginners League and Juniors League are on a slightly different model.
Please click HERE to register for the 2021/2022 curling season at GEWC. Registration and payment are due by September 8, 2021.
NOTE – The Masters League registration will roll out via a separate email. Please stay tuned.

Our Open House will be Sat, Sept 11th from 10-2pm. This will give you an opportunity to introduce someone new to the game and for you to dust off the curling gear and get in a few slides. We will also be there to get you set up with your lockers for the season.
