WC amateur sports club re-opens from COVID-19 Oct. 13

Special to WC Online

CARP – The West Carleton Amateur Sports Club (WCASC), a fine place to recount feats of derring-do following the game, is re-opening its doors after a year-and-a-half of COVID-19 exile.

“After a very long year and a half, we are extremely excited to announce we will be opening our doors for the season Thursday, Oct. 14,” the WCASC board released in a statement Saturday, Oct. 9. “Our community is like no other and we are very humbled at the feedback and comments we’ve received recently. Thank you for all your support, and we can’t wait to see you very soon.”

The WCASC makes its home in Volunteer Hall on the second floor of the W. Erskine Johnston Arena (3832 Carp Rd.) and is open from 4 p.m. to midnight Monday to Sunday.

“(The WCASC) strives to create a warm, friendly environment in the West Carleton region where families can come and enjoy the various sport games they love to watch, all the while eating great food and spending time with friends,” the WCASC states. “We are committed to providing a consistently high level of service, reasonably priced food and entertainment, and to support local community groups and individuals through access to the facility and any profits that are made.”

Sports groups are able to rent the licensed facility which overlooks the arena’s ice pad to host fundraisers for their organizations.

The WCASC is also a proactive supporter of West Carleton’s local sports scene, helping sponsor several sporting events over the years including the upcoming U23 Men’s Canadian Fastball Championship scheduled for Carp in the summer of 2022.

The WCASC is currently seeking kitchen staff to join the team as it prepares to re-open. For more information on the position contact Jonathan at operations@wcasc.ca.
