50/50 winner for Chedabucto CC on February 28…

Congratulations to Brian Dort, Halifax, for being the February 28 winner of the Chedabucto Curling Club Community Activity Society’s (CAS) 50/50 draw.  Brian bought his winning ticket — worth $223.00 — from either Vanessa or Jena Dort, both members of our Junior Curlers Program.

(Thank you to all who bought our 50/50 tickets — and to those involved in their selling.) We have yet to set the draw date for the next 50/50 draw. That date will be decided over this week and then its day will be announced.

Our rink’s website has updates on draws and the names of our 50/50 winners.

If you wish to purchase or 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.)

Best regards,


“Hot shoot” and Juniors’ pizzas winners for February 24….

At the conclusion of today’s session there was the usual “hot shoot” draws to the button for chocolate bars as rewards for the closest girl’s and boy’s rock to the pin. The winners of the bars were Victoria Grady (15.5 “) and Cody Carter (42”). Congratulations to Victoria and Cody. 🙂

Also today we had our awarding of pizzas to two of our Junior curlers for their successes with the selling of the rink’s 50/50 tickets. The pizzas are being donated to Chedabucto’s Junior League by AA Munro Insurance, Antigonish.  AA Munro Insurance’s much appreciated generosity and assistance is definitely serving as an incentive to encourage the Juniors to sell their 50/50 tickets. Today’s Juniors to receive a Big G’ large pizza for selling the tickets were Aidan Halloran and Vanessa Dort. The next selections for the Juniors’ pizza certificates will be in two weeks, March 9th (weather permitting). My thanks goes to the Juniors, their parents, families, and friends who assisted with the selling of the 50/50 tickets — and also to AA Munro Insurance for making our awarding of pizzas possible. With the goal of having an even larger win for our next draw, that 50/50 draw will be held this Sunday at the awards ceremony for the Exxon/Mobil & Northeast Pipelines Skins.

My sincere thanks and best regards to all. As always — parents are invited to attend to watch the youngsters’
