We're Ready to Rock

After ten years of discussions, planning, construction and transition, the Vancouver Curling Club opens the doors to its new facility at Hillcrest Centre this weekend.

For the first time since the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, stones will once again be gliding across the ice in the building that saw Canada win three curling medals (two gold, one silver) at those Games.

Final Countdown to our New Home

After years of planning, we are now just weeks away from curling in our new facility! It’s going to be a very busy time over the next eight weeks as we complete the move, and get ready to start the 2011-2012 season.

We will have open houses, clinics and plenty of opportunities to have members experience the new facility before we officially start the inaugural season in our new facility on September 25.

Some of the key dates to be aware of are as follows:

New Manager of Membership Services

The VCC Board of Directors is pleased to announce the Club’s first Manager of Membership Services.

As part of the management team, Brad Blackwell will be the key point of contact for Club members. He will also oversee the Last Draw Lounge and pro shop operations.

Brad comes to the VCC with ample food service and curling experience. His most recent position was as a senior sous chef and acting chef at Milestones where he was involved in hiring and the development of new back-of-house employees, scheduling and managing the back-of-house team on a day-to-day basis.

The Club Moves Soon

As the summer is now upon us, we wanted to let everyone know that both staff and the Board of Directors are working hard to prepare for the move to our new home. We will be moving from our current club to the new facility in late July / early August, and we are aiming to have as smooth a transition as possible in our first curling season in the Hillcrest Olympic / Paralympic Centre this fall.

Employment Opportunity (now closed)

The Vancouver Curling Club is looking to fill a new position as the Club prepares to move to our new facility. The Manager of Membership Services will be responsible for the lounge and food prep operations, the pro shop, and the customer-service aspects of the VCC's leagues, bonspiels and more.

Thank you for the 2010-2011 season

A message from the Club's outgoing president...

I would like to thank all our members and volunteers for a great season in 2010-2011.

The VCC is, at its core, a club – and a club is defined by the actions of its members. For my time on the board, on the whole, the actions of people I have been involved with have made me proud to be a member of the VCC.

Last Rock Delivered on Dinmont Avenue

On Saturday, April 30th, the Vancouver Curling Club hosted a fond farewell and tribute to our old building and 62 years of league play, bonspiels, clinics and good times at the Vancouver Curling Club on Dinmont Avenue with the Last Rock Ceremony.

More than 100 people were in attendance - including honorary life members, past presidents, provincial champions, world champions, and current club members from many of the VCC's leagues - as everyone had a chance to revisit the Club's history through the memorabilia on display, celebrate the throwing of the last rock (ever) in the ice shed, toast the grand, old building and then watch the lights go off in the ice shed for the final time.

Team Faa has a Great Run at Provincial Club Finals

After winning the Lower Mainland division of the Dominion BC Club Challenge, Team Faa spent their Easter weekend challenging teams from across the province and the western United States.

Competing at the Pacific International Cup / BC Dominion Club Challenge Provincial Finals, Team Faa finished in a four-way tie for second following round-robin play. After winning their two tie-breaker games in convincing fashion, Team Faa moved onto the medal round. Unfortunately, it was there that the team's spectacular run came to a grinding halt on the Sunday morning.
