Presidents Letter



Friday, September 22, 2017


Greetings everyone,


The Board of Directors invites you and any prospective members you can bring with you, to the

2017-18 season’s first event, our Open House on Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m.


Please set aside this date. It is the kick-off of another great season!  League organizers will be present to meet, greet, and sign up new and returning members. Goldline Curling Supplies may be on hand to display some of their equipment (to be confirmed), and catalogues will be available for those wishing to order curling equipment through the Tuck Shop. There will also be squash equipment catalogues available. The bar will be open and munchies will be served.


The ice should be ready for league play in mid-October.  A second Open House, “Come Out and Play”, on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. is an opportunity to play squash and/or curl for all who are interested.  Watch for details of other scheduled events on the Club notice board and on the web site.


Ann McGahey is back in the Office again this year.   Brian Hewson remains our ice technician.


Browse the Club’s website at for all the Club news and downloadable membership forms.


This year’s membership form is attached. Please fully complete it and return it to the office.  Membership fees have not increased from 2016 17. You will have the option of providing five post-dated cheques (15th of the month October to February) – all to be submitted at the time of registration – and still qualify for the early payment discount. To encourage new members, we are offering a month of free curling and/or squash to first timers and a discounted first and second year fee.  A reduced rate for 20 to 30 year old members is also offered. New honourary members will pay a partial fee. 


Volunteers are an important part of Club operations.  Please consider where you can help with the many jobs which keep the Club operating and vibrant.  Opportunities include assisting with bonspiels, squash tournament, fundraising, bartending, kitchen meal preparation and serving, the Youth Program on Mondays, etc.
