Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The Valley Ridge Community Association, Board of Directors, meet on the third Wednesday of every month at the Lodge of Valley Ridge.
This month, on Mar 18th, we held our meeting by teleconference due to CORVID-19 precautions.
The Board passed a motion to postpone our AGM which was originally scheduled for April 6th.
Our bylaws allow the postponement of our AGM for up to six months due to extraordinary circumstances.
This will likely move our AGM to sometime this fall.

Outdoor Rink

Due to the public health emergency restrictions issued on March 17th, all City of Calgary operated outdoor playfields and surfaces including outdoor rinks have been closed.
VRCA has also implemented these restrictions and closed our outdoor rink.
Due to the spring-like conditions, the ice surface likely would have been done within a week anyway.

Soccer – Message from Christa McKegney, Director of Sports:

With regret, both the VRCA Board and the Soccer Committee have agreed to cancel the spring soccer program due to COVID-19 health concerns.

We hope to reschedule soccer for Sept-Oct, assuming that this pandemic is under control.

We will be putting a survey on SurveyMonkey for our soccer families and other residents of Valley Ridge to ascertain the desire for a fall soccer program.  As we hope T Ball will be running at the same time, we will suggest some alternative days and times for soccer.

Please keep an eye out for the survey and pass the link along to anyone you feel might be interested.

Our next steps:

1. Christa will begin manually refunding our families for the soccer fees.  Once you have been refunded, you should receive an automatic email and should see your refund returned to the credit card you originally provided within 10-15 business days.
2. We will not be refunding the VRCA membership fees, as per our policies.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this time.
