Congratulations to Jimmy Halloran, Guysborough, for being the December 19 winner of the Chedabucto Curling Club Community Activity Society’s (CAS) 50/50 draw. Jimmy bought his winning ticket — worth $176.00 — from his son junior curler Aidan Halloran. (Thank you to all who bought 50/50 tickets — and to those involved in their selling.)
To enhance his Canadian experience we asked Chedabucto CC junior curler and international exchange student Luis Reuber, Germany, to make the selection at his hosts’ (Jim and Chris Muise) home.
50/50 draw with Luis Reuber and Ray Bates.
If you wish to purchase or to sell tickets: contact a club member, purchase them from a Junior curler, come to the curling rink, or buy tickets at Cutting Loose Hair Design & Tanning, Guysborough Pharmacy, Cook’s Gas Bar & Robin’s, Chedabucto Home Hardware, Guysborough Discount & Gifts, or at Days Gone By Bakery & Restaurant. CAS sincerely thanks the before-mentioned businesses for their continued support. (The businesses’ sold-tickets are collected on Saturdays.)
CAS usually draws its winning 50/50 ticket on Saturdays but — with the intention to have richer prizes — will occasionally be doing the selection after a couple or several weeks of selling. Our next 50/50 draw is tentatively planned for Saturday, January 16, 2016, during the Edgar Sceles Memorial Bonspiel. Our rink’s website has updates on draws and the names of our 50/50 winners. http://www.chedabuctocc.ca/5050-draw
The 50/50 draw is going to take place today at approximately 5:00 PM. I will collect whatever is in the community boxes today and then go to the Muise household (for their German-exchange and Junior-curler member, Luis Reuber, to make the draw.
Should you have moneys and tickets still to submit please bring them to my home (101 Green Street) as early as possible today.
Chedabucto CC members and guests,
This is your reminder that with this Monday being the conclusion of day curling until the new year we are having our annual Christmas pot luck at lunch time (approximately 12:15 PM with no afternoon game).
Members are asked to volunteer to bring something to add to the lunch selection. Since it is pot luck we are not doing specific requests — bring whatever you are able.
If you are chatting with any former members please invite them to also attend this special gathering. The truth being, if not for their input over the past, we might not have the privilege of being able to enjoy all that our rink has to offer.
If there are night-league curlers able to attend, come on down — the more the merrier. Besides, with Neil leading us in our carol sing, we can always use more voices.
Should you have the opportunity to bump into Chedabucto CC members or former members please share this invitation since not all have the use of a computer. It would be great to have them join us.
If you are unable to attend, I will use this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing participation and support and also to wish you a very merry Christmas with health and happiness in 2016.
There will be no curling tonight due to the nasty weather conditions out there. Games will be made up at a later date.
Next Saturday, December 19th, 7 PM, we will be drawing for the next 50/50 winner. That will conclude the draws before Christmas with the first draw in 2016 to happen at the Edgar Sceles Memorial Bonspiel being planned for January 15/16, 2016.
If you wish to purchase or to sell tickets: contact a club member, purchase them from a Junior curler, come to the curling rink, or buy tickets at Cutting Loose Hair Design & Tanning, Guysborough Pharmacy, Cook’s Gas Bar & Robin’s, Chedabucto Home Hardware, Guysborough Discount & Gifts, or at Days Gone By Bakery & Restaurant.
