New directors, honourary life member and bonspiel charity

The Vancouver Curling Club held its AGM on Tuesday, September 5. Three new directors are now in place with former director Craig Coyne returning to the Board and newcomers Brock Endean (Pacific Rim) and Jim Carpick (Pharmacists) signing on. Leaving the Board are past president Hamish Macdonald and Mark Trowell.

An honourary life membership has been awarded to Jen Lucas, whose many contributions include:

  • Serving on the executive as president, secretary and past president
  • Chair of two committees
  • Primary contact with the City of Vancouver in negotiating an operating agreement in the new facility at Hillcrest Centre
  • Negotiating a loan for the new facility after working with seven financial institutions
  • Volunteering at many specials events including provincial championships
  • Coaching and introducing the game to new curlers
A new charity to support in the annual Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel has been named. KidSafe provides nurturing safe havens for vulnerable inner-city children when schools are traditionally closed.
