 August 2014

Dear Fellow Curlers:

     We are very pleased to have our 2014-15 Membership Application forms posted on our WCC revised and improving web site (www.wellandcurlingclub.com).

     In drafting this year’s membership fee schedule a balance was sought between the needs of our members and the viability of the club. Membership fees in the 2013-14 fiscal year would have needed to increase by over 30% to bring the Club to a breakeven position. This is not competitive nor would it be palatable to our members. Increasing membership numbers, not fees is what’s required.

     To that end we have increased the number of membership options to entice new curlers, maintain past members and reward membership (membership versus pay per game). We believe our curling environment improved dramatically this past year with the new heating system (at a cost of $145 per member). Yet this year’s membership fees in a few categories have decreased and a Full Unrestricted membership increased by only $4.55.

     We have compared our fee structure with Niagara’s other curling clubs (as well as other means of entertainment, exercise and socialization) and we believe we are very competitive.

          We hope you look forward to curling this year and please accept our sincere appreciation for your support in being a member of the Welland Curling Club.

Sincerely Matt Botden

President

PS: 1) Open House will be Oct 14-18, 1:30 to 3:30 and 6:30 to 8:30 weekdays and 1:30 to 3:30 Saturday.

      2) Keeping our ice clean is very important and old grippers are the biggest problem. Grippers will be on sale during the Open House - 2 for $20 (regularly $15 each) HST included.

      3) Please help our future by introducing a new member to our club. Thank you.  

 

 

News:

The Open House starts Oct.14, we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back, especially the new people who are trying curling for the first time.

The ice is shaping up ! Randy has been working hard to get the ice in and it looks fantastic! The cooler weather has definetly helped Randy out for the ice making. Please remember to do your part to keep the ice clean, the Pro Shop will have a gripper sale on during the Open House , great prices on grippers.

We are gearing up for another busy season with plenty of competitions and Bonspiels, check the calender for details. Also remember to sign up for the leagues you wish to play in during the Open House. This helps the people organizing the leagues so they can get things rolling right away.
