Friday Nov. 9 is entry deadline for Funspiel for Schmirler Foundation, hosted by Lauren Lenentine

Hello everyone,
 
My name is Lauren Lenentine and I have been a proud member of the Cornwall Curling Club for many years now. Earlier this year, I was selected as a Spirit of Sandra Scholar by the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. The foundation was created in memory of World and Olympic curling champion, Sandra Schmirler. The foundation helps purchase equipment for hospital’s NICUs across the country, to help save the lives of babies born too soon, too sick, or too small.
 
I am hosting the Cornwall Curling Club Opening Bonspiel on November 16-17, with all proceeds going to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. I have space for 16 teams. I will accept individual and team registrations. Everyone is guaranteed three games. Only one competitive curler per team, please. The entry fee is $35 per person ($140 per team). There will be great prizes for the winners!
 
Included in your registration is a complimentary pancake breakfast on the morning of Saturday, November 17 at the Cornwall Civic Centre (upstairs at the Club). This is open to the public, so be sure to invite your family and friends! Donations will be accepted at the door.
 
If you want more information or would like to register, you can email me at laurenlenentine@hotmail.com or call me at (902) 394-5840. A sign-up sheet will be posted at the club!
 
Good curling!
Lauren Lenentine

Notice of Special General Meeting to vote on proposed Bylaw amendment

This is official notification that a Special General Meeting to review a proposed amendment to bylaw 2.4.8  will be held on  Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 8:30 pm (between the early and late draws).

The meeting will be short, and Club members wishing to vote are requested to read the proposed changes (below) in advance, in order to reduce the meeting time. Please feel free to contact any current Board member in advance if you have questions or require further information. Amendment requires an affirmative vote by two-thirds (2/3) of the adult members present at any general meeting of the Club.

PROPOSED BYLAW AMENDMENT

It is proposed to make the following amendment to Bylaw 2.4.8 in order to rename and clarify the responsibilities of the position. This will require Members’ approval at a Special General Meeting.

It is proposed that By-Law 2.4.8 would be changed from:

2.4.8 The Youth Committee
(a) Shall organize, plan and implement the Junior program.

To:

2.4.8 Development Director
(a) shall focus on all training and mentoring programs, such as, but not limited to, Junior Curling, Adult Learn to Curl, Senior Learn to Curl, Curling Etiquette and any additional in-Club programs we choose to develop.

Buzzer timing change for late draws

The timing of the buzzer will be changing on the late draws on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.  Because the games do not always start at 8:30 pm due to the time needed to clean the ice and prepare it for the late draw, the buzzer will now be activated at 10:25 instead of 10:15 pm.

When the buzzer goes, we ask you to finish up the end you are on, and then take the rocks back to the home end if necessary. In other words, you have to be in the hack throwing your first rock in your last end by 8:15 for the early draw, or 10:25 for the late draw in order to get all the ends in. In order to keep things fair, we use the buzzer on the late evening draw as well as the early draw, to ensure that everyone is treated equally and you aren’t here too late at night.
