I am thrilled to announce two new members of Team VCC: Ryan Schmidt and Shabeen Samoonhas.
We welcome Ryan as our Membership Services Coordinator, who starts his tenure at the Club on Oct. 28. Ryan’s recent employment history includes over ten years of business experience, most recently as General Manager of Reckless Bike Stores and three years as Marketing and Corporate Development Director for Greenangel Energy. In addition to a demonstrated history of sales and customer service, Ryan is an avid curler, having played the past two seasons with the Sunday league.
We also welcome Shabeen, our new Administration Coordinator, who starts on Oct. 30. Shabeen will be taking care of the day-to-day financial operations of the Club. Shabeen is a graduate from BCIT with a Diploma in Financial Management, Professional Accounting. He arrives at VCC with experience as Project Accountant at Boeing Canada, as an Intermediate Accountant with WPCG and Westwind Communications. While fulfilling his role at VCC, Shabeen’s goal is to pursue his accounting designation.
Join me in welcoming our two new team members to the VCC family.

VCC Interim General Manager
Welcome to Competition Corner, a new feature on our website in which we highlight achievements of VCC members in events outside of VCC bonspiels in the prior month. One of the goals of the Club's Board of Directors when planning for the move to the VCC's post-Olympic home was to support competitive curling with the hope that the VCC would once again become home to some of the best curlers in the Province.
Over the last four years we have had VCC members participate in, and win, regional, national and provincial events. At the VCC we believe it is important to celebrate not just the successes, but all our members' efforts. We established firstname.lastname@example.org this year so that members can let the Club know when they are playing outside the VCC.
The Vancouver Curling Club is currently seeking two full-time positions to start immediately for an annual term:
- Junior Ice Technician
- Lounge Manager

The VCC strives to make curling affordable for people at differing stages of life out of respect for a diverse membership that includes youth, students, people entering the workforce, people established in their careers, and retirees.
To put the cost of curling in perspective, we calculated the average cost of curling per week and compared it with other popular entertainment and fitness activities.
