As we enter the holiday season, we know that people are inundated every year with requests for donations for many causes. Donations to any cause are a personal and private choice. Some choose to donate because a disease or issue has impacted their life in a meaningful way, some choose because the fundraising request letter, event or story touched them, some choose because it seems like a good idea and the tax break is beneficial. There are many choices and many reasons so why do we ask you to think about the VCC?
The VCC was well represented at this past weekend's Men's Provincial Playdowns. Team Schneider (Steve Schneider, Rick Feeney, Shawn Ecklund and Glenn Smith) and Team Marchant (David Marchant, Andrew Gray, Noah Grant and Kris Davies) represented the club as VCC teams. Unfortunately, they did not qualify but, between them, had a number of very close games throughout the weekend.
The Club's Board of Directors is pleased to announce that we have selected the new Executive Director. Willa Thorpe will begin her tenure at the VCC on December 13 so please take a moment to read the letter of introduction (linked below) to learn more about Willa, the position and the process undertaken to select our newest team member.
After winning a silver medal in the Tim Horton’s BC Senior Women’s Curling Championship in Kamloops last season, Team Miller of the Vancouver Curling Club is back at it this fall hoping for a return to the provincials.
Team Miller is off to a good start by winning the Cloverdale Ladies Bonspiel on Nov. 18-20. “We played some really tough games,” said Skip Karen Miller. The competition included some other teams that are competing on the provincial circuit. “It gave us some strong practice and also gave us a chance to measure our team against a couple of other strong senior women's teams.”
