RECENT NEWS

STICK CURLING LEAGUEThis has become so popular that Stick Curling is now two days every week  …. Mondays starting at 11am and Thursdays at 2pm.  Bill Rand is the organizer and he asks that curlers arrive about 30 minutes early so that teams can be determined and equipment obtained.  Everyone is invited upstairs afterwards for some great social time!  For more info click here.

DROP-IN CURLINGThe Curling Club is booked for the next 5 weeks so the rink is not available for Drop-In Curling until January 2020.  We’d like to thank everyone who has attended our Saturday Drop-In sessions so far this year  ….  we’ve all had a ton of fun!!!  Hope to see everyone back on January 11th, 2020!  One thing to think about in the New Year is using Saturday nights to practise “Doubles” curling.  Lessons/Rules/Strategy will be explained if needed.  There is a plan for the WLCC to host a Mixed Doubles Bonspiel in mid February so Saturday nights would be a great time to practise up prior to the Bonspiel.  More info to follow in the New Year.  Stay tuned  ….

LADIES FUN NIGHT AT THE RINK

Wow  ….  almost 50 ladies joined together for great games and great times at the rink on November 20th.  There were about a dozen brand new curlers and the teams were made up of ladies from all of the leagues as well as the rookies.  Everyone was mixed up on teams which played three 2-end games and enjoyed pizza upstairs afterwards, thanks to Boston Pizza!  Check out all the pictures by clicking here or going to the Ladies League page.  Thanks to Donna Shiach and her group of volunteers for putting on this fantastic evening for the Williams Lake ladies!  Stay tuned for the next one …  you don’t want to miss these!!!!

MANY VOLUNTEERS KEEP THINGS ROCK’N

Managing the lounge, making the ice, running many programs, doing the maintenance, and serving on the executive ….  all these things have something in common  ……  these are all done by club members who volunteer their time  ….  and what a great job all these people do!!!  All members get to enjoy a fantastic facility, both on and off the ice, thanks to the many hours of volunteer time put in by  fellow members.  If you see people behind the bar, coaching school kids, making the ice, fixing things, and just taking care of things at the  club, say THANKS!  Without all of our volunteers we couldn’t have such a great club and everyone is invited to help.  Throughout the season there will be many more opportunities for members to step forward and help out in some little way that makes a big difference.  Please consider giving a few hours of your time to help make our club the best it can be so we all continue to enjoy this great Canadian sport.  Again, thanks to all you volunteers out there …  all of your efforts are greatly appreciated!!!!  The club is off to a great start to this season!
