SUPPORT JUNIOR CURLING

Even though we weren’t able to complete our curling season this year, plans for next year are already in place, and as such, the yearly “Optimist Curling Fundraising Draw” is upon us.  This fundraiser, operated by Al Kersey for the Optimistic Clubs, is a yearly raffle that raises money to support Junior Curling.

In our club it has paid some expenses over the years for our Junior Curlers to attend Junior Curling Bonspiels and for teaching programs for Junior Curling.  This year the Optimistic Fundraiser is helping to pay the cost of a new program for the WLCC’s Junior Curling Program, which is called “Blizzard Curling”.  It is also paying for the WLCC to train up to 8 Junior Curling coaches in the fall of 2021.  This is exciting news for both our Junior Curling program and our dedicated Junior Curling coaches, most of who are high school students who attend our Teens Curling Program.  Please help all junior curling programs around our Province by purchasing your tickets today.  The draw is only 3 weeks away, on April 3rd, so act now as there are a limited number of tickets available.  For information on how to order your tickets click here or go to our Junior Curling page (Side bar or under our “Leagues” heading above). 

Our Junior Program is an extremely important part of growing our club for the future, and we’ve made great strides over the past number of years thanks to our many adult and teen volunteers.  Thanks for your past support and looking forward to a bright future with these new programs for players and coaches!!!

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, including lessons, for beginners and 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!).  Come on down and join us when the season starts in November.

MANY VOLUNTEERS KEEP THINGS ROCK’N

Curling Coaches Dec. 15th, 2019.  Missing from picture are Jerry Mooney, Bill Rand, Mike Pedersen & Ken Kvist.  We taught 50 brand new curlers the skills needed to enjoy a game  …  and they did!!!

Managing the lounge, making the ice, running many programs, doing the maintenance, hosting Christmas Parties (6 this year!) 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, hosting newcomers, and just taking care of things at the  club, say THANKS!  Without all of our volunteers we couldn’t have such a great club!!! 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 Curling Club is the place to be 6 days a week, thanks to you!
