I want to thank Steve Myette and Jim Muise for their help this past Wednesday. We managed to get the rings all cleaned up and ready for the new season plus the handles on the rocks were reversed and cleaned up. Next up is the cleaning of the ice plant room, warm area and dehumidifier rooms. Several hands on deck would be nice for this duty. We are looking at Saturday Oct. 3rd at 10am. Hopefully only a couple of hours is needed for these tasks. The following week we will hold our semi-annual meeting. Date and time TBA soon. Ice prep will hopefully start on or around Oct. 16th. I need to contact George to discuss this further.
PS Plea reply back or call me at home 533-2539 if you are coming on the 3rd.
Here is the story in the Chronicle Herald about the plight of the proposed curling rink in East Hants..

Did you know there was a Grey Cup of Curling that is 2 years older than the CFL Grey Cup?
See the attached poster for details, a couple highlights are: up to $4000 in prizes to be given away AND the winners will have their names added to the Original Grey Cup!
