BERT CONS

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Bert Cons, a long time member of the Williams Lake Curling Club.  As everyone who knew Bert knows he was very passionate about golfing and curling, but curling was his absolute favourite thing to do! It only makes sense that Bert was an avid curler, a tireless volunteer in so many areas, and a person who’s sense of humour and uplifting demeanor was so appreciated by everyone for so many years.  Even after his retirement from curling, members would see him around town or go visit him and they always seemed to end up talking about curling  ….  a great thing to reminisce and chat about for sure!  We wish to extend our condolescences to his family and friends, and to let them know he was a valued and cherished member of our club, and a friend to many. We will truly miss him!  As per his family’s request, “In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Williams Lake Curling Club or The Seniors Activity Centre, both were special places to Dad.”  We know that Bert will find a happy place and he’s probably either curling or golfing at some great place in the heavens!!!  Thanks for your time with us, Bert …. You are very special to us!

ELEVATOR CONSTRUCTION

May 1st

Just an update to let everyone know what’s happening at the Curling Club.  We recently received another very generous grant that will allow us to complete our Elevator Construction project, including the installation of the elevatory, the installation of an accessible front door, and renovations to our washrooms to make them totaly accessible for all members and guests.     Phase 2, the purchase and installation of the elevator, will now start in late March of 2022 and be fully functional by June 1st of 2022.  Phase 3, the upgrading all our washrooms, making accessibility to the ice surface smooth with a ramp, and making the entrance way accessible with new automatic doors and a level entrance pad will also happen next Spring and our goal is to have everything ready for any summer bookings of the rink area and/or the Lounge.  The Board/Executive wishes to extend a big “thanks” to everyone who has already volunteered time.  In the future we may need more volunteers, and probably more financial backing, so stay tuned as we move forward with this very exciting and important project at our club.

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.
