Hello folks, hope everyone survived the weather of the weekend with little or no difficulty.
It’s that time of year, we are gearing up for our annual Auction and Social. Last year’s Auction raised over $3500.00 and was a lot of fun. We’re looking to match or beat that total and have a Social afterwards to celebrate after this year’s Event.
We are asking Members to source a donation. If you take the donation letter to merchants, service providers, restaurants, building supply places etc., typically they will donate something. All donations are welcome! If you are on a roll, don’t feel obligated to stop at one!
Please bring the items to the Curling Club, where they will be secured until the Auction. If you need items to be picked up, please contact Mary Johnson, Laurie Cochrane or Dee Vipond and we will gladly pick them up for you.
In the meantime, save the date – Saturday, Feb. 23 and encourage your friends and relatives to attend the Auction and Social!
Hard copies of the posters and donation ask letters are also available at the Club. If you have any questions, let us know,

Friday Night Curling and a brand new year to look forward to.
We are attaching a “Friday Fun Night” poster for your information and to encourage everyone to come out and curl on Friday night.
In the past Friday night was played on a team basis, this year the format has changed to a “drop-in” basis. This gives opportunity to all who are interested in curling to come out for a night of fun curling and as competitive curling as you want it to be.
This is open to all levels of curlers, the experienced, the not so experienced and those who have never gave it a try but would like to. Come along, bring a family member or friend.
The more people we have on Friday nights the more fun it is for everyone. We are always open to suggestions as to what you might like to see, if “doubles curling” is of interest to anyone. Let us know.
Friday night Commissioner will be there to welcome everyone and to offer his assistance.
Have a Great Day Everyone!!
Mary Johnson, Secretary
