Hit N Roll: November Email Newsletter

Best ever year for subscriptions!

We at the Royal Club have been delighted at the effort clubs have made to pay subscriptions on time this year. Literally, only a handful of clubs failed to meet the deadline before the subscriptions increased on the 1st November. Prompt payment by clubs saves a tremendous amount of effort by staff chasing up unpaid subscriptions, meaning we can devote our time to more constructive activities. The income also helps our cash flow by allowing us to place more funds on deposit until they are needed, thereby generating more income to plough back into the Club. A big thank you goes out to everyone who contributed to this success.

New Curling Strategy Survey

If you want to help us shape the future work and direction of the Royal Club please spend 5 minutes doing our New Curling Strategy survey. There are just 9 questions and you only need to answer the ones that you’d like to. Your input is valued and appreciated, and your responses will not be attributed to you but will be analysed in the process of developing the new strategy. Thank you.

September Masterclass: a great way to start the season!

29 curlers took part in the Royal Club`s 3rd annual adult curling camp at Kinross in September. The camp is targeted at club curlers who would like to improve their skills utilising the latest technological equipment and the expertise of qualified coaches. Abilities of participants ranged from one curler who was on the ice for just the third time to a team of competitive curlers.

The majority of participants were primarily club curlers and included a group of ladies from Nairn Curling Club who took part in the Adult Camp for their annual outing.

A variety of ice and classroom sessions were provided and the weekend was once again a great success.

The camp is an ideal opportunity for you to develop your game early in the season; the 2011 dates will be available shortly.

Membership database is for everyone to use!

More and more clubs are now seeing that the membership database is a tool for them to use and is not just there for the Royal Club. As a result, the quality of information held (postcodes, telephone numbers and email addresses) is getting better all the time as clubs as members update and add information as it changes. From the member who needs to look up a phone number to the club secretary who needs to send out a short email , everyone can use the database. Members can enter or check their own contact details by logging in with their email address and password. Just go to the login page at www.rcccmembers.org to access the site or follow the link from the Royal Club`s website. If you do not have a password, simply click `New Password` and a secret password will be generated by the system and emailed to you right away.
