The VCC's Sandra Schmirler Day took place on Saturday, November 21st, and club members and community members alike came on down to the Vancouver Curling Club to celebrate the sport of curling.
The day was a busy one that had the club's Junior program taking place, the start of the VCC Playdowns for the Dominion Club Challenge, teams from the Blind League playing an exhibition game, community members 'having a go' on the ice and a number of club members who took advantage of the open ice to practice their skills.
The The Recession’s Not Quite Over Bonspiel! wrapped up play this past Sunday. Thank you to all of the participating teams, and to the organizing committee led by Dan May.
The event winners were as follows:
Winner - Team Schneider / Runner up - Team Thompson
Winner - Team Lubin / Runner up - Team Chapman
Winner - Team Styba / Runner up - Team May
Winner - Team Ritchie / Runner up - Team Bos

A number of members have been enquiring about what, if any, open ice time will be available. Now that all of our leagues are up and running, we are happy to announce this season's Open Ice times for members to come to the club and practice.
The times and sheets available will always be shown online (right-hand column of the homepage) and on the sign inside the club - just to the right of the front door when you are leaving. And Please note these times are subject to change as a result of any rentals that may occur and/or staff availability.
We look forward to having you come on out and practice when you can.
NOVICE LEAGUE... A quick reminder to all curlers who had expressed an interest in participating in the club's novice league that play begins this coming Sunday, Sept 27th.
Due to the recent collapse of the manager's harddrive (Sept 11), all of the emails to the manager from before that date have unfortunately been lost. So please be sure to confirm your registration with the club manager either via email or phone.
JUNIOR PROGRAM... The Vancouver Curling Club Junior Development Program is back, but in a new time slot on Saturday mornings. We'd like to welcome everyone who participated last year and everyone who'd like to try out curling for the first time.
