Dear Fellow Curlers:
We are pleased with the level of activities at our club this fall. The Club Coach Clinic in October was a success as those members that participated enjoyed the experience and came away from the day with some good coaching tools. We have hosted 2 junior curling zone playdown events – the Pepsi Junior Men & Women Zone Playdowns and the Gore Mutual Schoolboy & Schoolgirl Zone Playdowns.
We received a $5000 grant from the Royal Bank “Learn to Play” program that will provide the funding to go to 30 elementary schools in the area to promote the sport of curling as a great activity for the youth in our community! A cheque presentation was made at the club on the last Saturday in November – RBC Sport Day in Canada.
The annual Turkey Spiel was enjoyed by a full roster of teams!
While the number of members this season is down slightly, curlers are enjoying the programs at the club. We believe our curling environment is a fun place to be and invite all members to encourage people to give our club and curling a try!
The board would like to wish our members “Best wishes for the holiday season and for the coming year!”
Please accept our sincere appreciation for your support in being a member of the Welland Curling Club.
Sincerely Matt Botden
