About the Blue Water Curling Club
From the President:
We would like to congratulate Carrie Keeling on her new position with the club as our Club Manager/Cleaner. Along with her knowledge of the workings of the club, she brings enthusiasm towards promoting the growth of our club. Also new for this year is a 4 day Curling Clinic for new members. Please see the poster for information regarding dates and price.
There have been a couple of changes made to leagues this year. The Ladies League now has Monday Nights from 7 – 9 pm meaning the Men’s League is solely on Thursday nights. We would like to urge curlers to consider entering teams (or going on the individuals list) for the Players Choice League as we would like to expand that league into flights which would pit more competitive teams against each other and vice versa. Please contact Dave Twining if you are interested.
We have continued the new member incentives this year, including the 20% Promo discount for new members and the Member Referral Program. Both of these incentives proved their value the last couple of years as our membership showed a marked increase. Please refer to the Member Referral attachment for details on how you can bring in a new member and benefit at the same time.
Once again this season we are offering our afternoon Bridge Club. This season it will be held on Tuesday afternoons. Please complete and send the bridge registration form if you are interested.
Please remember to print out a Registration Form for each curler before attending. As in the past, we prefer to have dues fully paid upon Registration. We have also instituted an Optional Membership Payment Plan which involves 3 payments consisting of one current cheque and 2 post-dated cheques. Please be aware that there is a $25 administration fee charged for this service. If you are unable to attend the Registration night, please mail your Registration Form and fees or drop them in the club mail slot at the front door.

As you know, each year the Board is always looking to replace members. This year there are three vacancies on our Board. The open positions are for Mixed, Kitchen/Events and Ladies. If you are interested in serving on the Board, you must be present at the annual meeting on September 14th. When we call for nominations, please have someone nominate and second your name for consideration. If there are more nominations than positions an election will be held. If you are interested or you would like more information about these openings, please contact Norma Breadner or Brent Keeling.
Norma Breadner, President
