|The Vancouver Curling Club is thrilled to announce that an Eight-Ender was accomplished by Team Rose of the B&B League!
Team Rose recently scored an eight-ender in the first end of their game. The team is actually becoming adept at achieving this rare feat as they previously scored an eight-ender approximately 12 years ago at the VCC with the exact same foursome.
The next few months mark the final time that you can participate in events in our historic building, before we move to our new facility in the fall of 2011. There are a number of bonspiels as well as skill development opportunities that will be hosted at the club between January and April 2011. We look forward to having you join us.
To a joyful present and a well-remembered past. The Vancouver Curling Club Staff and Board of Directors wish all members of the VCC a safe and happy holiday season.
Best wishes to everyone for a happy holidays and an exciting New Year!
Reminder: the club will be closed from December 23, 2010 until January 1, 2011, and regular league play resumes on Sunday, January 2, 2011.
The Club is inviting artists and designers (both amateur and professional) to design a visual image to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Vancouver Curling Club (2012).
The winning graphics will be put on t-shirts as well as other memorabilia and event materials. The t-shirts will be available for sale to members and friends of the Club with proceeds going to help our move to the new facility.
Artists are requested to keep a three-colour limit in their designs. Contributions should be submitted in PDF format with 300 dpi or better resolution by Friday, January 21st, 2011.
The VCC Board and Management are pleased to unveil a new section on the club's website - a complete section featuring information, drawings and photos of the Club's new home.
Negotiations between the VCC and the Vancouver Park Board are continuing so this section will be updated as new decisions are completed, but members can be assured that the facility will be ready for play next fall for the 2011-2012 season.
A message from the Club's President...
Now that the new season is in high gear, the club is stepping up its fundraising efforts to secure corporate and member support to defray the costs of our move and reduce our bank financing requirements. Our current estimate for furniture, fixtures, equipment and moving / installation costs is in the range of $450,000, the largest capital outlay in our almost 100 year history.
There are a number of ways to show support, so please review the options below and help where you can:
Thank you to all of the participating teams for making the 2010 Harvest Bonspiel a great success.
The club would like to congratulate Team Hamish Macdonald for winning the bonspiel as they defeated Team Aaron Thompson in the A Draw on Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, Team Ryan Blunt captured the B Event title and Team Kyle Domes won the C Division. Finally, complete event results are available by clicking here.

More details on both of these events will be available in the coming weeks. And a complete listing for all of the bonspiels, clinics and more taking place at the VCC this season can be viewed by clicking here.
Due to limited interest in the upcoming intermediate clinic on "Team Dynamics", we have decided to cancel the clinic. We thank you for your understanding.
In the meantime, we are happy to announce that next month’s intermediate clinic – focusing on the “Line of Delivery” - will take place on Saturday, Nov. 27.
Please click here for more details, and we hope you will join us at the VCC for the continuation of our curling clinic series.

Complete event details are available by clicking here, but all participating teams will be guaranteed three games, a special pizza night and much more. Registrations for both teams and individuals are being accepted.
