Presidents Message 2017 -2018
Another summer has past by and it’s time to break out that broom, those well used curling shoes and get ready for a new season of CURLING! I know the summer seemed short this year but it is time to return to the rink and have some fun!
Each year the Board of Directors plan for the events for the coming year and we are all working hard to improve our communication and hopefully add a few surprises along the way. We have been working on an improved registration form to help us all get signed up for what will be a memorable year. We do realize that we will require help along the way from you the members and curlers. We know many of you have held positions in the club before and your experiences will help us do our jobs. If you have a good idea to help improve the club let us know and we will consider all recommendations. We work for you not the other way around. Be involved it makes it more fun for all of us.
Finally enjoy the sport! Curling is a game that has a physical aspect , a technique, and finally strategy. These combined create one of the best sports in the world! Take time to use all the attributes you can offer your team but be respectful of your opponents, your teammates, and respect the rules of the sport. The enjoyment comes through healthy competition on the ice and a healthy conversation in the lounge afterward.
Let’s make this a wonderful Year!
David McCombe, President, Eastlink Curling Centre “Home of the Oliver Curling Club”
