A huge thank you to all who helped make this Return to Curling Weekend such a success.
First of all thank you to all who came to support the events taking place.
I must thank Scott Andrews and Ali Cunnigham for a very enjoyable and informative evening for our coaches and to Scott for helping us understand how to play Quick Curling. The timing with clocks has been removed from the rules now and it really is quick and fun. 18 joined Scott today for games of Quick Curling.
A big, big thank you to all who made Friday a success. We had lots of helpers on and off the ice , lots of members trying out their skills on the ice and we raised a very good sum for Macmillan. The final figure will be given to you as soon as we are able and a cheque presented to Macmillan.
Angela reckons we had over 60 Come and Try participants over Friday and Saturday and Angela deserves a medal for her amazing advertising and the monumental task of collating the booking system. Thank you so much. Here’s hoping for some new members.
Thank you too to all the coaches and assistant coaches who above and beyond the call of duty stayed on to do extra shifts when more people booked at the last minute. We cannot thank these people enough for the time they have given this weekend and throughout the season.
Thanks to Lorrie and Sinitta who provided good food and drink every day and the ice men for very good ice all weekend.
We are looking forward to seeing lots of you for Opening Day and for the rest of the season
Rob and Aileen
