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:
