Welcome

We welcome curlers of all ages and abilities to our club. Our mission is to develop sportsmanship, skill, confidence and to promote the sport of curling. Curling is a lifelong sport - so why not get started this year! Come to the club and make arrangements to learn to curl, register for a league and join in the fun.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE:

Welcome to the new season of curling! We hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful summer and is bringing their enthusiasm to the 2014/15 curling year. A special welcome goes out to all new members this year. We hope you will enjoy being part of our club and share in the camaraderie we have all come to enjoy. Our returning members to the Stroud Curling Club have many fond memories of events and friends made through the years and will undoubtedly be looking forward to making new friendships and more great memories.  We are all extremely proud of our facility and the asset it has become in our community. The past presidents, board members, staff and all our volunteers have been instrumental in ensuring the positivedevelopments, growth and success of our club to date, and hopefully for many years to come. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those members that have gone the extra mile to see that our facility is wheelchair accessible.

Once again, we are proud and pleased to have the care of our facility placed in the capable hands of Bert Johnson and his ice technician staff. With Bert and our bar staff on board, we are assured of another great year.  Rental opportunities, advertising revenues and increasing memberships are essential in maintaining the continuing success of our club and we ask all of you to help us promote the club by getting the word out.

Any questions regarding rental opportunities and advertising can be directed to Bert.  Thanks to each one of you for the part you play in being a member of the Stroud Curling Club.

GOOD CURLING!

Ken Pickles

President
