A Week Ahead at the RGC

April 26, 2017


Dear Members,

You may have noticed that the flags in front of the RGC are flying at half-mast this week. We at the RGC received the very unfortunate news that one of our long-term Staff, Akram Chmait, passed away suddenly last week. Akram was a part of our kitchen Staff for 16 years, most recently serving as Sous Chef. He was a loving father and husband, and a friend to many. His family held a celebration of life this past Thursday. This loss has been hard for a number of our Staff and I’m sure some of the Members as well. Akram will always be remembered as a kind, hardworking employee who always had a smile on his face. Rest in peace, my friend.
 
We are thrilled to welcome 187 tennis players to the RGC and Saville Community Sports Centre for the next five days for the 2017 Western Canadian Senior Indoor National Championships! This year’s event has set a record for the most entries in a senior tournament in Edmonton! Beginning Thursday, the RGC is also hosting our Squash Club Championships in Singles. This event is Members only but will be a lot of fun for the participants involved. Good luck to all involved!
 
Our Annual Dues for Life contest is getting very exciting as we enter our last month! We currently have four eligible Members in the running to win annual dues for life. However, it is not too late for you to get involved! If you think you have enough referrals to earn yourself free annual dues for life, visit our Director of Sales & Marketing, Elizabeth Kendall, to learn more.
 
If you have been keeping up with the playoffs, you must be thrilled to have witnessed our Oilers defeat the Sharks 4-2 in the first round! That last game was nail-bitingly close, but our boys pulled through! Join us in Generations Sports Lounge or on the Pool Patio as the Oilers take on the Ducks in round two, and be sure to wear your Oilers jersey on game days. The first game of round two starts tonight at 8:30pm. It’s hunting season! Let’s go, Oilers!
 
I want to take the time to congratulate an RGC Member, Sherry Robertson, who was recently elected to the Canadian Olympic Committee. Sherry has been involved in high-performance sport her entire life and has coached at major international competitions, which include the Pan American Games, Commonwealth Games, World Championships, and the Olympic Games.  Sherry has been a member the RGC Aquatics Committee since the opening of the pool. Congratulations, Sherry! We are thrilled for you.
 
Have a great week, everybody!
