Now that the new year is upon us, the staff and board at the VCC wish to extend Happy New Year wishes to all of our members and our friends.
The club is now open again after our holiday break, and we have a full month of curling ahead of us before our league hiatus begins on February 8th.
Be sure to check back here soon and to read the upcoming issue of “The Backline” for complete details on the club’s plans during the league hiatus from February 8th to March 2nd. We have some very interesting activities in the works for both on and off the ice.
Happy New Year!
