Membership

Just a quick update to remind you that starting in September, our 2 month Trial Membership Program will be back. So use this summer as an opportunity to think about your neighbours, lake friends, family and colleagues that you now know through virtual meetings and others who would enjoy the Club and be a great fit! Send their name our way and we can discuss this exciting opportunity!

Don't forget, your Club Bucks from last years program will expire on August 31st, 2020!

Thanks for all of your support and enjoy your summer!

Can you believe all that we have experienced over the last 3.5 months? I often have a take a moment to pause and remember that through all of this we have remained as healthy as we can and with family. Of all the negatives, the positives have been amazing!

As a parent, I spent more time with my little family in the last 3 months than I did in the 12 months prior! With the business of working, volunteering, hockey, dance and so on... life moves faster that we can handle it sometimes. What a valuable experience this has been to teach us to slow down.

The other change many of us experienced with having extra time was using that time to workout. I enjoyed seeing different people present at the Zoom classes and the pictures of temporary home gyms that were set up. But most rewarding was seeing and hearing our members say that they were grateful to return to the Club, a small piece of normalcy returned to our lives. Working out was certainly a savior for some at home and hopefully we can support you in continuing that feeling at the Club.

As we shift into July and the dog days of summer, remember that we are here, and supporting you through this season of transition. We have done so much to ensure that we remain open and keep our members feeling safe. Thank you for letting us be with you during this season of change. Stay healthy.

Do you have a family member, friend or neighbour who is interested in checking out the Club, playing a match or working out with you? We take a hiatus from our trial membership program over the summer months but we do offer summer memberships for those who are interested in seeing what the Club has to offer. As we are not allowing guests into the Club at the moment as part of our Covid-19 member procedures, you are welcome to refer them to me via This email address is being protected from spambots.

One of the best things about our Club in the summer time is cooling off in the rink! At any given time, you might find a staff or two just chilling out (literally) in there to cool off! What a great opportunity to strap on the skates and give the ice a try! Remember, you will need to reserve your space with reception in advance!

REFERRALS = REWARDS

Thank you to all of our members who referred their friends to the Club in the 2019/2020 season! While we didn’t end our busy season as we would have liked to (i.e. enjoying a Brew Ha Ha and well… not being shut down!), we still had a successful referral campaign! We had over 160 referrals and over 110 who took part in the experience! That means that those who were referred were really interested in trying it out! We were able to sign up approximately 40 new members and over 20 are still enjoying their trial experience as it was delayed due to Covid-19 and our shutdown. So, the future possibilities are exciting!
For those who referred someone who signed up, you were rewarded with $200 in Club Bucks to be used on incidentals around the Club (Catering and Pro Shop excluded). Remember, the deadline to use your Club Bucks is August 31st, 2020.

Thanks for your referrals! We will be seeing this program again and, with some adjustments due to this pandemic and our new procedures, we hope we can be as successful, if not more. All of our success rides on our Members. You are following our Covid-19 procedures well and are great advocates for our Club, ensuring that we will continue to stay open!

Thank you!

We, at the WWC, would like to start off by saying we recognize that these are challenging times and we hope it’s okay for us to reach out with our normal schedule of communications.

Over the last 12 weeks I have used the phrase in our communication ‘Remember, we are all in this together’. We have all sacrificed so much over the last 12 weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we prepared to return to the Club we were hit with another injustice and everything we are experiencing really had to come into perspective. The phrase ‘Remember, we are all in this together’ has never been more true and more false in this time. The unjust killing of George Floyd in our neighbouring state has opened a wound that has begun a movement. A movement towards social equality, respect, and cooperation. As one friend put it ‘It’s awful, BUT it’s finally happening’. We all have friends who live in the U.S. who are protesting, in an unsafe environment, regardless of their skin colour for equality and safety. We are with you.

My heart was warmed by the peaceful rally that occurred in Winnipeg last week in support of both Black Lives Matter and social injustices and I’m sure many of you were in attendance, either in body or in spirit. We stand with you, with our members, our city, province and country in support of a safe movement towards true equality, cooperation, respect, and inclusion.

Our community at the Winnipeg Winter Club is inclusive. We strive to create a safe, equal and welcoming environment for everyone. We stand with our friends fighting for true equality and wish everyone across this globe safety as they make their voices heard.

“Remember, our greatest strength is in standing together and remaining committed to finding ways to support the advancement of equality and racial justice.” ~Dan Chessa
