JOINT LADIES & MENS BONSPIEL

It is the 75th anniversary of the Williams Lake Curling Club this year and that is the focus of the upcoming Joint Ladies/Mens Bonspiel on Februrary 3rd, 4th and 5th.  The theme is Redneck Reunion, and combined with the 75th anniversary celebration this should get people’s minds going on how to best represent their team  …. it’s going to be a ton of fun!!!  For more info click here to visit our Bonspiel page.  Good curling, everyone!

CLUB CLOTHING

It is the 75 anniversary of the Williams Lake Curling Club this year.  The board thought that members might want to celebrate with a piece of WLCC logoed clothing.  We have a sample selection of clothing, as well as the logo, up-stairs in the lounge.  You can also view the clothing in the attached document.  The samples are for members to check on sizing and quality, but they are not for sale.  All items can be ordered using the attached order form.  Pricing is include in the attached catalogue.  An order is placed every Friday so get yours in soon if you’re looking to have it as a Christmas gift for someone special!

Please contact Carol or Donna with any questions.  Their contact information is on the bottom of the order form. 

Thanks to Carol and Donna for getting this all organized for us  …. just one more example of how our volunteers step up to make the WLCC such a great place to be!!

ELEVATOR CONSTRUCTION

May 1st, 2019

UPDATE – The two areas that have been completed this Fall are the renovations of the downstairs women’s bathroom to make it completely accessible, and the installation of new front doors, which make our whole club accessible with electronic door openers. Yet to be accomplished on these two projects are new flooring in the bathroom and new concrete slab leading into the building.  A bit thanks to Wise Windows and doors for installing the new entrance doors, and to Dan Moore at Parcon Construction for the bathroom renos.  We are really moving forward with this project and hope to been 100% accessible at all levels by this time next year.

As you may already know, the WLCC has been very active in

Elevator completed – September 15th, 2022

pursuing grants and other funding in order to complete our accessibility project of installing an elevator, improving our entrance/exit doors, and updating our washrooms to accomodate all people at our club.  We have now completed phase 1 (elevator) and once contractors become available we will be getting to the next two phases.  This is very exciting for our club as we can accomodate new groups of curlers and allows more opportunities for rental of our upstairs lounge and rink area.  Thanks to the Executive members hard work on procurring grants and to the contractors who made this project happen so quickly  ….  it’s a great way to start a new season  ….  with new and exciting opportunities!

 

OTHER TYPES OF CURLING

STICK CURLING LEAGUEThis has become so popular that Stick Curling is now two days every week  …. Mondays starting at 11am and Thursdays at 1pm.  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 CURLINGThis has become a very popular activity for family and friends on Saturday evenings from 7 – 10pm.  Cost is only $10/person for non-members and members curl for free.  The club supplies all equipment needed and a lesson for people wishing to try out this amazing sport – all players have to wear is some warm/stretchy clothing and clean indoor runners to wear on the ice (please carry these in … no outdoor footwear allowed on the ice!).  A helmet is suggested for all beginning curlers, and is mandatory for everyone 12 years and under.  Come on down and join us when the season starts in October.
