Curling 201 Clinic
Dermot Quinn and his Learn to Curl team are running a clinic for novice and intermediate curlers from 9 AM to 3 PM. If you could use a refresher on the techniques of rock delivery (delivery, grip & release, line of delivery, and weightcontrol) this clinic is for you. Video analysis of your delivery is included! Space is limited to 20 curlers, and the cost is $25 including lunch. There is a sign-up sheet on the front bulletin board, or you can sent me an email to enrol.
Light up Shayla’s World
The committee raising funds for Tammy and Sean Brown’s daughter Shayla have reached their initial goal of raising $10,000 to purchase eSight eyewear for Shayla. Mary Jane Brooks writes:
We are having a celebration benefit for Shayla at the Midland Curling Club, as follows:
Date: Feb. 1, 2014
Time: 7:30 to Midnight
Location: Midland Curling Club
Tickets: $15 available at the Midland Curling Club (705-526-5631)
Bands – Rock N The House, The Black Fly Kings, Blind Mary
Lunch will be provided
We are thrilled to have Shayla at the function with her new eSight Eyewear…. she will even sing a couple of songs for us! Any funds raised will be held in trust for Shayla and will go toward additional aids that will contribute to her ongoing development and independence. We can only accommodate 100 people so tickets are expected to go fast so be sure to get yours soon! (We are looking for silent auction items, so please let us know if you have anything you would like to contribute!!)
Salvation Army Fundraiser
Members of the Midland Curling Club gave generously again this year to the Salvation Army fundraiser. Anita Fegarty delivered donations totalling more than $3000 last week, in time for the Salvation Army to help make Christmas a little more merry for local families in need. Thanks to Anita and to all helped make this program a success again this year.
New Year Price Reductions
As we have done in recent years, we are reducing a couple of prices after January 1. Our new curler introductory price drops from $199 to $149 for those who join us for the balance of the year. If you have friends or neighbours who would enjoy curling, please send or bring them in to sign up! And, for those members who currently curl in a single league, the upgrade to a multi-league membership is reduced from $100 to just $50. Double your curling fun for the balance of the season by joining a second league!
Each member on a full-year membership may use two free guest passes (Day Curling pass curlers get one) that allow you to bring a non-member out for league play. Additional guest passes are available at the bar and cost $20. There is no limit on the number of guests a member may invite, but each guest may play no more than four times during the season. Use of guest passes depends on space being available on the ice and is subject to the approval of the league convenors. A member wishing to bring a guest must contact the league convenor ahead of time.
Help Light Up Shayla’s World
A group of Club members is raising money to help Tammy and Sean Brown’s daughter Shayla, who has severely impaired vision. Technology is available that will help Shayla, and the group is hoping to raise the funds necessary to equip Shayla with this incredible electronic eyewear. If you can help with a donation of $10 or more please see the full letter from Mary Jane Brooks for more information.
