MCC Winter League Opening and Closing Assignments
The Missoula Curling Club is a volunteer run organization. As such, we ask all the teams to participate in helping set up and clean up during the season. Each team is asked to open and close once this season. The tasks are very easy and do not take a lot of time if everyone shows up and participates. It is the responsibility of each skip to make sure his or her team arrives on time for the week assigned to help. A Board of Director or League/Membeship committee member has been assigned as a lead for opening and closing each week. They will assist, direct, and train everyone so the experience is a positive one and our league runs on time. Thank you in advance for participating. Assignments follow below.
Opening Lead – Arrives early (one hour before start time). Fill Pebblers, open lockers, get prepped for ice preparation, coordinate/assign tasks for the Opening Teams as they arrive. Ultimate authority to make sure ice is ready by scheduled start time.
Opening Teams – Teams arrive no later than 30 minutes before start time. Lead will assign tasks from team members to complete the following tasks: Pebble ice, install hacks, distribute stones to sheets, crush pebble after pebbling is done, put scoreboards in place, string mop ice after crush, and start curling at scheduled time.
Closing Lead – Is the last to leave. Ultimate authority to make sure everything is put away, locked up, and properly cleaned.
Closing Teams – Following completion of your match, the lead will coordinate/assign tasks to complete the following items: make sure stones are put away, scoreboards off ice and put away, pebblers are drained and put away, all trash is picked up off ice, hacks are taken off ice and put away, all equipment is put away, and cabinets are locked.
