Latest news for the upcoming season….

50th Anniversary dinner: At last Tuesday’s Executive meeting the decision was made to postpone the Club’s 50th Anniversary dinner from October 5 until later into the curling year.

Semi-Annual AGM: The Club’s Semi-Annual General Meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 9, at the Club for 6:30 PM. The agenda will be circulated later in September.

Stick delivery Instructions: The Nova Scotia Stick Delivery Champions, Ron Crowe and Bill Spinney, from the Truro CC, will be conducting a daytime workshop at Chedabucto CC in November for Club members. More details will follow at a later date.

New members: It may be August but the Club’s executive is planning for the 2013 – 2014 curling season.  Your immediate contribution can be to start thinking of friends, neighbours or acquaintances who you believe would like to become Club members. If you know former members who have “drifted away” from Chedabucto CC, please give them a polite nudge to rejoin the flock. We are aiming to commence this year’s curling in early November.

Juniors: If you know of youngsters who would like to curl we will be working with Mr. Long, Principal, to promote curling as a very affordable and enjoyable sport where the only equipment necessary are clean sneakers and warm clothing. All curling equipment is provided by the Club at no direct cost to the members.

Duckie Race results…..

A rather successful Duckie Race and Chicken BBQ took place yesterday at the club. Weather was great and we actually had the race on the same day this year. All of our chicken dinners sold out and approximately 830 duckies got sold give or take. We brought back the Stick Draw contest and it too was successful. Hopefully next year we will have more prizes. The crowd was quite steady over the whole afternoon as music from Mary Theresa & Danny Rogers plus Neil Decoff and others who joined in played on. Duckie Race winners this year were Evelyne Jamieson (1st), Basil Mattie (2nd) and Magdalyn Connolly (3rd). Congrats goes out to our lucky winners. Thanks also go out to all of our volunteers who made this annual event a success. If anyone out there has more photos to add to the website and/or Facebook site please email the club with them.
