Come individually or bring a team – time to put all those skills out on the ice, have fun and curl a game.

As for the new Curling I/O Registration System, it appears that most members found that it worked well for them. It has certainly been a huge benefit for Club Administration as we now have complete membership information, including emails, phone numbers and emergency contact information. Information is in-house and at our fingertips The Club is able to pull various reports, eg team members, active curlers, Monday curlers, financial reports, eg total fees paid or total GST received, etc etc! It has been a big endeavor but successful!
CURL BC NEWS: Kimberley Dennis is the new Education Coordinator for Curl BC. She is looking forward to helping clubs organize and deliver any coaching, officiating, or ice technician workshops throughout the upcoming season. There are a number of events happening around the Kootenay’s this fall that our members can take advantage of. Including the following events:
– Jet Ice Level 1 Technical in Cranbrook September 29th-30th facilitated by BJ Gagnon. This course will help develop any new staff members that your club may have for the upcoming season.
– Club Coach Workshop in Trail October 13th-14th facilitated by Karen Watson *this workshop is free for any female participants due to a leadForward grant. This course would benefit any members/volunteers that are helping your clubs with junior & learn to curl programs, giving them extra training, resources, and confidence.
