Question New membership and outdoor field status?

Hello,
I am RC helicopter pilot in Montreal and am going to join the WIMAC for the 2021 season, but I have some questions:
  1. Does the club still accept new members?
  2. What is the status of the outdoor field? Will it work this year (2021)? Especially the helicopter part. I saw some waring records about possible closure of the filed, but all of them are for previous years 2019 and 2020.
  3. What will be the schedule? Are there are limits and no-fly days? If I become a member, will I be able to use the field on weekends?
  4. Are there any new rules and limitations regarding COVID situation and curfew in Montreal?
Thank you very much for the answers! It will help me take the correct decision.

No need to worry about helicopter instructor. I am experienced pilot and already was a volunteer MAAC instructor myself for CSLRC.

I saw some waring records about possible closure of the filed, but all of them are for previous years 2019 and 2020. Apart for a short period, we have been open during the pandemic, with restrictions - maximum # of plane (4) or heli/drone (2) pilots at a time. Reservation slots: 2 hours each. Social distancing, masks, etc.
  3. What will be the schedule? Are there are limits and no-fly days? The only restrictions are mentioned above. If I become a member, will I be able to use the field on weekends? Yes
  4. Are there any new rules and limitations regarding COVID situation and curfew in Montreal? See above

Please provide more information on this.
I have checked the roll, there is some unclear for me. For example, what does it mean?

What is meant under "etc."

For example, "10:00 pb (lr)(gg)" means:

from 10 am to 12 midday, one plane pilot whose initials are "pb" and two heli/drone pilots (in brackets), whose initials are "lr" and "gg", have reserved this 2 hour time slot on the day mentioned in the title of this thread.
It is explained here:

Mask rules are the same as whatever is currently in force by the government of Quebec

Electric is fine any time. The restriction is on gas/glow which may not be flown before 10am.
