The 2013-2104 season was a successful one for many different VCC teams and individuals who were representing the Club at competitions from Ottawa to the Comox Valley, and many places in between.
This season was a unique one for the Club because for the first time in recent memory, there were VCC teams at three different national championships. We would like to congratulate Team Switzer, Team Gibson, Team Schneider and Team Thompson for representing the Club so well on the national stage.
Thank you to all Club members who attended the 2014 Annual General Meeting on June 4. Everyone's comments and feedback during the meeting were appreciated as members' opinions and participation are vital for a membership-driven organization like ours to thrive and succeed.
A very special thank you to our outgoing Board members for their dedication over the past few years. The following members gave very generously of their time and professional skill sets over the past three years (and in some cases more) to help the VCC get settled into our new facility at Hillcrest Centre:
Additional kudos are extended to Kathy McInnes for being elected by the membership as an Honorary Life Member. Kathy’s contributions to the Club and the sport of curling during her tenure are endless but some of her key achievements include: serving multiple terms on the Board, including one year as President and three as Secretary; helping run and coordinate two different leagues for many years; playing a leading role with many of the Club’s special events for more than two decades; working with a small group of others to help preserve and document the Club’s rich history; volunteering with the 2009 World Junior and Wheelchair Curling Championships as well as the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games; and much more. Congratulations Kathy, and thank you for everything you have done and will continue to give to the Club.
Two other individuals were also honoured at the 2014 AGM; Jen Lucas and Jason Tusor were named the female and male volunteers of the year. Their respective contributions from March 2013 to February 2014 were quite impressive and extensive. Thank you to both of them for giving so freely of their time and contributing positively to the VCC.
Lastly, congratulations to the new Board members who were elected during the AGM. Please click here to view the Club's Board of Directors for the 2014-2015 season.
The VCC's Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 4 from 7pm to 9pm and is open to all VCC members to attend. Our AGM is an important activity for our member-run organization. It provides the Board an opportunity to summarize its activities for the year, and it also gives members a chance to voice their feedback. In addition, a number of positions on the Club’s Board of Directors are up for election at each AGM. To learn more, please click here.
Did you volunteer at the Club last season? The annual VCC Volunteer BBQ will take place from 5:30pm to 6:30pm on June 4 (before the AGM). All volunteers of the 2013-2014 season are invited to come down and enjoy a drink and BBQ meal and socialize with other members. Please RSVP to Christopher via email email@example.com
