One of the main changes for the upcoming season is the club’s curling calendar. The 2009-2010 season will be a little different than normal due to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games that will unfold in our backyard… in the Vancouver Olympic / Paralympic Centre.
During the 2009 AGM, members voted in favour of a Board of Directors’ recommendation to establish a legacy fund for the purpose of fund-raising for the required furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) that will be needed for the new facility.
The first step of fund-raising begins in the 2009-2010 season with a $35 per member contribution to the Capital Development Fund (CDF).
To help the club prepare for the move to our new facility, the VCC Board of Directors undertook the task of creating a plan for the Legacy Facility during the 2008-09 season.
To answer questions such as: Will current leagues move from this facility into the new one? How will the VCC change as part of a larger Community Centre? What services will the club offer in its new home? How will we fill 8 sheets of curling ice? and more, the Business Plan Principles were created.
