are excited about the idea of the “Sin City
Spiel”. This event is focused on fun and we
are trying very hard to bring in new curlers, those
that have not been in the rink for a while and of
course, the regulars! It’s all about having a
great time, and as the name suggests we have a few
tricks up our sleeves to encourage that!
From a facility aspect, we completed our first year
with a new camera and TV system. Hans Wuthrich
was out to provide some technical advice last year
and we anticipate much better curl and ice
conditions this year. Along that line, all the
water used to create the ice this year used reverse
osmosis water. You will see the difference as
it is decidedly whiter out there. We have lots of
plans for the future as well.
To make some of these plans
happen we need help. To add more fun to it we would like to
add more events. Like Grey Cup Parties
upstairs, maybe a golf tournament in the summer.
There are tons of small things we can do to add to
our sport. But like anything it takes a bit of
members of OUR club, we need you to get involved.
For this club to be a success, all members need to
contribute. We don’t need big time
commitments, maybe something as simple as just bringing in a new
member. Unless we as a group step up, and work at
this, our membership will continue to decline.
I firmly believe encouraging a sense of membership,
unity and creating more fun events is positive
action. As enthusiasts of the sport, it’s our
responsibility to help create that.
See you on the ice,
