Temporary Club Closure

After thorough discussion, and with the support of our Board of Directors and club management, we have decided to close TCC as of 10 p.m. March 17, 2020, until further notice.

As we have expressed in previous communications with respect to the current public health situation, our primary focus is the health and safety of our staff, members, and community. In light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 virus, we believe this is the best decision at this time.

We understand that the closure will have a significant impact on our community, and that you will likely have many questions. We ask for your patience as we endeavour to answer them. Following this notice is a page of Frequently Asked Questions that may help to answer some of your concerns.

Your support and understanding is very much appreciated during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Joe Corea
President

How will our staff be affected by this closure?
We will do our best to provide support and compensation to our staff during this closure. Our staff are a critical part of our club and culture, and given the current competitive labour market we must do everything we can to retain them at this challenging time. As an important part of operating revenue, membership dues will be one component of helping us bridge this gap for our employees.

Will the facilities be maintained and secure during this closure?
Yes, all required maintenance will be completed throughout the closure, and management will be on site Monday to Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our Chief Building Engineer and his team will be on site daily and available 24/7 as required by WorkSafe BC.

Has a reopening date been established?
No, at this time, there is no clear indication of when it will be appropriate to reopen. The Board of Directors and Club management will continue to monitor the situation and the recommendations of the Provincial and Federal public health authorities. Updates will be emailed to members, and posted to www.tcclub.com, every few days or as needed as the situation evolves.

Who do I contact for further information?
Peter Jackman, General Manager, at gm@tcclub.com or admin@tcclub.com
