Hello & Welcome Back LCC Members!
I can’t believe I am saying this, but the 2023/2024 Season is just around the corner!!
Our calendar is being finalized & we are in for what we hope to be another successful and event filled year on the ice.
The Ladies’ Scallop Spiel kicks off our events calendar and takes place November18, to be followed by our Business Spiel the following weekend. We are again hosting the Learn to Curl program in partnership with the Town’s recreation department (November 7th) which has been such a resounding success over the years. We have a phenomenal crew of members who step up to assist during the 5-week program and beyond!
As always, we will have our other favourites taking place – The Stephen Rhodenizer Club Championship, Bob Mayo Memorial Stick Tournament, Doubles Event, Curl for a Cause & we look forward to Night Crawler’s Crib & Curling being added as a permanent fixture on our event calendar after a fun first go last season!
The ice plant is set to be turned on October 6th and with that ice preparation will commence. This will be led by our new Ice Chair, Tracy Frowd, and with the help of Wayne, Kevin, Harvey, and many others – we look forward to being set to begin play on Monday, October 23rd. I must extend many thanks to Craig who filled the role of Ice Chair for many years for his time and efforts. (He never let the ice melt - Craig's words not mine!)
We were happy to have Sweet & Saucey Catering back in the kitchen on the weekends again, along with a few private rentals and a wedding. We have a great venue for hosting events & I think we will see this grow in the years to come.
The LCC is always looking for members to become more involved in their club and spend some time volunteering in whatever capacity they have to offer. If you are interested, please speak to me personally or to one of our directors. We can always find something for you to do!! Many hands make light work.
I want to extend thanks to Anne Spence for her work over these last years, who while not stepping away from the Membership role completely - will be helping Jan Merrill who has stepped into the Membership side of things for us. (Yay & thank you Jan!) We’re so happy to have the help and appreciate thetime being offered!
And... on the topic of membership! We truly have a great membership & together we make our LCC a fun place to be. I hope to see all of you returning and you should bring your friends! I know it can be daunting – but take part in events even if it is all brand new. There are always people on the ice to show you & answer questions. Put your name down as a spare on league nights you don’t necessarily play on. We are a little community and love enthusiasm. While we all love to be competitive – the love of the sport, and the camaraderie is what brings us back. We enjoy our time both on the ice and around the tables afterward!
This is the final year of my 2-year term in the role of President. I look forward to seeing what the season brings and thank you for trusting me in this role. I feel lucky to be sitting around the table with a great board: Craig Munroe, Lorne Spence, Lola Greek, Becky Nodding, Al MacIntyre, Peter Mosher, Dale Kelly & Tracy Frowd, all of whom bring so many skillsets and ideas to the table.
Start stretching those muscles (who am I kidding, this is really a big reminder to myself), reach out to your teammates and I look forward to seeing all of you in just a few weeks!
Please do not hesitate to contact me via phone 902-521-0803 or
email ( email@example.com ) if you have any questions or concerns.
Be Safe, Be Well!
