In case you have not yet received the news, this week's scheduled curling has been cancelled and the season will end a week early. Due to the warming trend in the weather and the ice plant struggling to keep up on the weekend for our Mixed Bonspiel, Roman thought it best to shut the plant down right after the bonspiel to spare the one remaining functional compressor.
Congratulations to all the finalists in our Mixed Bonspiel:
"A" Event: Milward Rink (Lillooet Curling Club), winners over Foord Rink (Chilliwack Curling Club);
"B" Event: Trick Rink (Al, Pattie, Evan and Judy), winners over the Harvey Rink (Steven, Sharyn, Ron and Gail), from the Hope Curling Club;
"C" Event: Neid Rink (Chilliwack Curling Club), winners over the Kinnear Rink (Port Moody).
At this time, I personally would like to send out a HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE involved in this past weekend's very successful bonspiel - from the 30 participating teams of curlers, to all the volunteers who gave their valuable time and a first-class effort to ensure that we hosted a truly great weekend curling event at our Curling Club. Bravo! Also a big thanks to Roman, our prized ice-maker/Manager for all that he does at our Club. Thank you to the generous contributors and bidders at our annual Silent Auction which raised $3431.00 for the Club! I am happy to announce that, at the present time, we have sold over 1000 of the 1500 Extra End Ca$h raffle tickets and will be presenting the $500.00 early bird prize to Carol Pringle, whose ticket was drawn on Saturday night. Please continue to sell the raffle tickets - I have confidence that we can sell every one of the remaining tickets and maximize our return on this fundraising initiative. Tickets and ticket money can be turned in to me at Toy's Pharmacy or Stu at Meyers Norris Penny.
Congratulations Hope Curling Club on a job well done! Let's keep it going!
