Our 1st Turley Shoot in a few years took place last night, Nov. 29th, and was well attended. Four turkeys were shot down and won by Evelyne Jamieson, Holly Nahrebecky, Heather Manuel and Don Armstrong. Thanks goes out to all who attended and members who helped make this night a success.
Congratulations to Mary Cooke, Erinville , for being the November 29 winner of CAS’s 50/50 draw. Mary’s winning ticket was worth $259.00. (Thanks to all who bought tickets — and to those involved in the selling of the 50/50 tickets.)
With the wish to have a larger draw, CAS will occasionally be drawing at the usual 8:00 PM on Fridays but will be occasionally doing the draws after a couple weeks of selling. Refer to our website for updates on draws and the names of winners. www.chedabuctocc.ca
If you wish to purchase or to sell tickets: contact a club member, come to the club, or buy tickets at Gerard Hart’s Grocery Store, Boylston; Cook’s Gas Bar & Robin’s; Cutting Loose Hair Design & Tanning; Chedabucto Home Hardware; Days Gone By Bakery & Restaurant; Guysborough Discount & Gifts; Guysborough Pharmacy or Central Supplies (Guysborough).
CAS sincerely thanks the before-mentioned businesses for their continued support. (The businesses’ sold-tickets are collected mid-afternoons on Fridays.)
Unfortunately due to a serious lack of numbers and no one to coach the youngsters, the Juniors curling will be put on hold until after Christmas pending a sufficient numbers increase and available coaching.
With sufficient numbers we can try again to get a Juniors program going for this season; if not we will wait and try again next year.
This is a regrettable decision to be made but with an almost zero lack of responses to our word-of-mouth, circulated Juniors Curling posters, school announcements and emails there is no other choice at this time.
At last week’s Juniors registration evening at the Club the only people to show were me and Phil O’Regan.
If anyone would like to step forward and volunteer to assist to recruit youngsters and/or to find a person to recommend to the Executive who would be willing to coach the Juniors, please reply ASAP.
As is happening within many organizations — the numbers are down.
Unfortunately the Chedabucto CC is also a victim of our dwindling population.
The Chedabucto Curling Club would like to encourage all members and non-members to take a try at Stick Curling. After our workshop on Nov. 16th of this year we were introduced to this new type of curling. It only requires two people with no sweeping needed. We, as a club, hope to introduce this type of curling on Friday nights this year and maybe next year add this as part of our Day/Night League curling. Stay tuned for more details to come.
