In the News…

Weekly Update – May 29, 2020

This week’s announcement of Phase 2 brings with it mixed feelings: hope that we can slowly open our centre, uncertainty as to what a careful opening looks like, and so much more.

Many centres are busy working on a re-opening strategy and GCWCC is gathering as much information from as many sources as possible to provide a re-opening package. In the meantime, the province has outlined specific guidelines for Community Centres in their Restoring Safe Services Phase 2 document: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/phase-two.html;

We will continue to work on a safe opening strategy while adhering to the provincial guidelines.

In light of this Varsity View Community Center has decided to suspend programming, as follows:

  1. Bingo (Sunday/Tuesday evenings) has been cancelled until further notice
  2. Nursery programming has been suspended until further notice
  3. Yoga (Wednesday evenings) has been cancelled until further notice

Should you have any questions related to our facility and/or program cancellations, please email vvcc@mymts.net .

 Thank you for your patience.

Varsity View is offering a power skating program put on by Brooke Enns of Competitive Edge Power Skating.  Brooke is a very qualified coach and brings some experienced coaches with her for her program.  The pamphlet is attached if you would like to register.  Spots are limited to 15 children/class.  If there is demand there will be a wait list in case someone should have to cancel.  If the program cannot go forward then refunds will be issued. If we have to modify the program you will be notified.  Please follow the registration information in the brochure to sign up.  Please be honest about your son/daughters ability when registering as having appropriately skilled children together is important to keep the class moving ahead with their skills.  There will be 2 coaches/class  and no sticks allowed as the focus will be on skating.  If you have any questions please send me an email.

(VV Board and Staff with Madison Bowey and the Stanley Cup in the Splex Jul 28/18)

********

NHL champion Madison Bowey  brought the Stanley Cup to Varsity View Community Club on July 28 at 3 p.m.

Bowey, defenceman for the Washington Capitals hockey team, is a former Varsity View Falcon and he will bring hockey’s greatest trophy back to his childhood club for a party. All were welcome to attend this free event.

“My hockey career began here, at this great community club in this wonderful hockey city, and this is my chance to pay tribute to everyone who helped me get started, and encouraged me to keep going,” Bowey says. “It’s a great honour to have this privilege and I can’t wait to celebrate back home in my community.”

Traditionally, players and staff of the championship team each get a day to take the trophy to a destination of their choosing. Madison chose to share it with his community, where it all began.
