A Week Ahead at the RGC

September 13, 2017


Dear Members,

We’re only one day away from the grand re-opening of our Outdoor Playground during tomorrow’s Park A Palooza event! It’s been very exciting to hear all the chatter about the event in the halls of the Club and I hope you’re all looking forward to it as much as I am. It’s sure to be a fun evening of music, food, and fun with our excellent Club Community. If you haven’t yet RSVP’d to the event, please make sure to do so at Member Services as soon as possible. Let’s hope the weather cooperates with us, but we do have a contingency plan should it continue to rain! I would also like to take this opportunity thank the entire Membership for being so patient and understanding during all of the Club updates and repairs that have been ongoing as of late.
 
Our Membership Fair took place on Monday night and it will be back for a second time tonight from 4-7pm. If you have any questions regarding Transferable Memberships and Membership Upgrades, Member Referrals, Aquatic Certificates, or Membership Policies, our Membership Committee along with our Sales & Marketing Team will be set up in the Club Lobby to assist you. Make sure to check it out!
 
Friday will be our annual back to school movie night with Storks being the family-friendly film feature of the evening! The movie will start at 6:30pm in the Regal Glen room and finish around 8pm. We will have adult supervisors present, but parental supervision is required for children two and under. Please make sure to arrive at the event 15 minutes early in order to check your child in.
 
This week is International Housekeeping Week, so I’d like to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful Housekeeping and Maintenance Staff for the great job they do to keep the Club looking excellent. If you happen to see one of our Housekeepers or Maintenance Workers while in the Club this week, I encourage you to express your appreciation by telling them “thank you” as you pass by. As well, National Coaches Week is coming up from September 23-30. To celebrate the fantastic coaching Staff we have here at the RGC, we have paper leafs available at Member Services for our Members to fill out telling us why their coach is the best. Make sure to return your leaf to Member Services, as all of the leaves will be put on display for National Coaches Week.
 
Our Splash, Pedal, Dash children’s triathlon is set to take place this Sunday, September 17. Kids ages 4-13 are invited to participate and it’s not too late to register through GameTime. Please note that the Aquatic Centre will be closed from 7am-12pm due to the event and Member Parking will also be impacted. Please refer to the Breaking News section of the Newsletter for details.
 
Also this weekend is the long-awaited Davis Cup tennis event at Northlands Coliseum. We do still have some tickets available for purchase, so if you would like to see the action of the Davis Cup in person, please be sure to connect with Charlene Gray at recmanager@royalglenora.com for more details on seat availability and pricing. Go, Team Canada!
 
You may have noticed that two beautiful family portraits are now on display across from my office. These portraits were done by Robert Bray, three-time Canadian Portrait Photographer of the Year. We’re excited to be partnering with Robert to offer RGC Members a fantastic opportunity to have family portraits taken for a good cause. Sunday, October 1 will be Portrait Day at the Royal Glenora Club, as Robert is currently taking bookings for 25-minute portrait seatings for only $75 each, with 100% of the seating fee being donated to the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Portraits will be done in the area surrounding the Club, weather permitting. There is also a Deluxe Option available for a $150 donation to the Stollery that gives you the opportunity to pick your own date and time for your seating. More information is available at the table display by my office. Please book directly through Robert Bray at 780.448.4905.
 
I wish you all a fantastic rest of your week and an excellent weekend!

Kind Regards,
Dustin McAvoy
CEO
