Update on both Novice and Junior Programs

NOVICE LEAGUE... A quick reminder to all curlers who had expressed an interest in participating in the club's novice league that play begins this coming Sunday, Sept 27th.

Due to the recent collapse of the manager's harddrive (Sept 11), all of the emails to the manager from before that date have unfortunately been lost. So please be sure to confirm your registration with the club manager either via email or phone.

JUNIOR PROGRAM... The Vancouver Curling Club Junior Development Program is back, but in a new time slot on Saturday mornings. We'd like to welcome everyone who participated last year and everyone who'd like to try out curling for the first time.

First day of the Junior Program is Saturday, October 3 and you can please click here for more details.

New Doubles Champions are Crowned

The 2009-2010 season is now one week old, and the first spiel is already in the books at the VCC. Congratulations to Aaron Thompson and Jack Holmes - the Season-Opening Doubles Spiel champions.

Aaron and Jack went undefeated throughout both round-robin play and the playoffs to capture their title. In the final, they defeated the only other team who had gone undefeated to that point - Brady & Kristin Clark, from the Granite Curling Club in Seattle.

New Website and Registration System are online

A new season at the VCC is bringing some new changes, including a revised club website. The new vancouvercurlingclub.com is now online and live!

The intent of this site is to be the main source of information for all of our members. The new site has a number of changes to the site's back-end technology and it allows for a number new features. Some of these features include online registration for events, a more robust calendar of events, online rental request forms, more capabilities for league reps to help manage the club's leagues, and much more.

Pre-Season Open House

The club's annual pre-season Open House took place this past Sunday, Sept 6th. So thank you to everyone who came out.

Everyone was welcome -- club members, friends, family and neighbours of members, plus any interested community member -- to come on down to the Vancouver Curling Club.

Looking Ahead to the 2009-10 Season

One of the main changes for the upcoming season is the club’s curling calendar. The 2009-2010 season will be a little different than normal due to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games that will unfold in our backyard… in the Vancouver Olympic / Paralympic Centre.

New Capital Development Fund

During the 2009 AGM, members voted in favour of a Board of Directors’ recommendation to establish a legacy fund for the purpose of fund-raising for the required furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) that will be needed for the new facility.

The first step of fund-raising begins in the 2009-2010 season with a $35 per member contribution to the Capital Development Fund (CDF).

Business Plan Principles

To help the club prepare for the move to our new facility, the VCC Board of Directors undertook the task of creating a plan for the Legacy Facility during the 2008-09 season.

To answer questions such as: Will current leagues move from this facility into the new one? How will the VCC change as part of a larger Community Centre? What services will the club offer in its new home? How will we fill 8 sheets of curling ice? and more, the Business Plan Principles were created.
