We Need Your Feedback

Students from Georgian College’s Research Analyst Program have created a survey for past and present members to                    determine how the Midland Curling Club can retain its current members and attract new members.

Although you will be asked to provide your name and postal code, this survey’s findings will be confidential. You are asked to provide these details for statistical accuracy only. (I.E. Duplicate surveys by the same person)

To take the survey, please begin by choosing if you are a current or past member of The Midland Curling Club.

Beat the Blahs with Blind Mary

This famously fun Celtic band (including the curling club’s own Jim Hanmore) will be chasing away the chills of winter to help us beat the blahs on Friday February 20.

Music begins at 8:30 p.m. and the evening is open to everyone so invite your friends, your family and your neighbours because the more the merrier when there’s a party.

3rd Annual Garage and Bake Sale

Saturday May 30, 2015

Set the date aside; start gathering your items for the garage sale, and thinking of the goodies you are going to bake. We are starting to organize for this wildly successful fund raiser. We appreciate your donations of clean, usable items.

Our continuing success is dependent on you!

This is an evolving event, based on our prior experiences and safety issues; there are items we will no longer be accepting:

• No baby furniture, car seats

• No televisions, large appliances, or large furniture items

• No stuffed furniture like mattresses or sofas

• No large rugs

• No Christmas decorations

• No clothing or footwear

• No video tapes, magazines, textbooks, or encyclopedias

We will be looking for volunteers and sign-up sheets will be appearing!

Coach’s Tip #5

Warm Up

Properly warming up prior to a practice or game is something we too often disregard. However, taking 5 or 10 minutes to at least stretch and warm the muscles can not only improve performance early in the game, but can also lessen or prevent injuries.

Stretch the muscles you will actually use in sweeping and delivery and slightly increase your circulation and respiratory rates. Your body will thank you in the morning.

Check out the warm up routine employed by Team Norway (aka The Pants).
