UPDATE ON WALKPATHS AND SNOW CLEARANCE
As previously explained the RRRHA was required to cease and desist from snow clearance by the City of Calgary, which owns all the sidewalks and paths in Rocky Ridge. As such they can only be cleared by a city-appointed sub-contactor with insurance to cover 100% liability. The City does not have sufficient budget to clear all the pathways so RRRHA is paying from its own budget to more than double the number and extent of sidewalks and walk paths which will be cleared by the City contractor (Green Meadows) during Winter 2017. Any uncleared walk path is to be considered closed for the season and should not be used; if pedestrians do use these paths, they should be aware that this is at their own risk. If you have any complaints about snow clearing please convey your feedback to the City at 311.
*ICE UPDATE* Feb.27th - ICE CLOSED
WINTER PROGRAMS: Register now for programs starting soon like Pre and Post-Natal Pilates (March 7 - April 13) and Young Rembrandts (March 8 - 29). Punch passes are still available for classes that have already begun. Please click on the programs tab for more details on the many programs we offer.
A few things to keep in mind:- Helmets are strongly recommended- Public skating will be on the end of the lake closest to the parking lot; Hockey will be on the far side (no hockey sticks/pucks on the public skating side)- Please refrain from going onto the ice immediately after flooding (generally done first thing in the morning) as ruts and grooves develop that are extremely difficult to improve- The "stay off the ice" signs will be placed on the dock when necessary
We are looking forward to a great season of skating, and hope that all of our members are able to come out and enjoy!
TENNIS COURT UPDATE
RRRHA has obtained a quote and scope of work for the reconstruction of the lower tennis court. Once the retaining walls and drains re fixed, the space will be resurfaced and re-versioned to allow for multi-sport activities, including tennis and pickleball, with each court available on a first-come first-serve basis. The contractor has let us know that the project will require a minimum of eight weeks, starting from when ground and weather conditions permit. We will keep members updated on progress and when we expect work to be done.

PARK ACCESS & FUTURE PLANS
The RRRHA Board wants to engage our members and local residents in a conversation regarding access to and the use of the Ranch. We invite you to contact us directly in person or via social media, to let us have your thoughts on RRRHA offering a limited number of paid day passes for non-members. At this stage we are simply gathering information, and the next step would be to conduct a formal survey. The Board might then hold a General Meeting at which any proposal would be put to a vote of all the membership. RRRHA is also interested in gauging interest for activities such as a lunchtime book group, or walking group, or bridge or chess club - other suggestions and feedback by members are very welcome!
Do you have a green thumb? Do you have strong ideas about what plants you want to see around your community? Please let the office know if you are available to volunteer for the Landscaping committee in the Spring. Last year the RRRHA concentrated on clean-up, pruning, weed control and the planting of perennials and spring bulbs. This year the RRRHA will be ordering more perennials, along with annuals to create our community's living floral displays. Other green spaces within the community which belong to the City will be maintained by RRRHA in accordance with an "Enhancement" Agreement. What this means is that the City provides a limited budget for essential landscaping (e.g. mowing fields & meridians), and RRRHA "enhances" this out of its own budget.
