Were you a Volunteer at the Kelvin Hall Silver Broom?

Calling All Broom Volunteers


Broom Heading 

Those of you who have the requisite number of fingers and toes will be aware that the 30th anniversary of the very ambitious and very successful final Air Canada Silver Broom Men’s World Curling Championship, held in the Kelvin Hall, Glasgow, is almost upon us.


While being all too aware that all volunteers are not in a position to do so, a small band of volunteers centred in Greenacres, feel it would be a very rewarding experience if as many volunteers as are able meet up in Greenacres on a date still to be finalised to “chaw over” their Silver Broom memories.


It was initially thought that the get together should be in the form of a curling bonspiel but on reflection it has been decided that the curling would just get in the way of the chat.


Thus, if you are a “Broom Volunteer”, and together with a spouse or other companion would be interested in participating in the reunion to take place on a Saturday between mid April and mid June would you please send contact details  together with:-


1.     A note of your role (Corporation bus drivers welcome)

2.     Your preferred month

3.     A note of whether you have any photographs which would contribute to the reunion experience


It is envisaged that refreshments will be served and a small charge will be levied to cover the cost.


Contact details etc. can be sent by e-mail to info@curl-greenacres.com  or by letter to Greenacres Curling Rink, Bowfield Road, Howwood, Renfrewshire, PA9 1DE


We, Christine, Hugh & Richard, look forward to hearing from a vast number of volunteers and request you pass this information to any volunteer who may not get “Your Curler”.
