Chedabucto CC needs your support for the stick draws and Ducky race….

Adult and Junior Members plus Supporters,

Plans are being made for the Chedabucto Curling stick draw at our annual ducky race / chicken BBQ — our yearly MAJOR FUNDRAISER — being held on Sunday, July 24. We need all members to step forth and assist. Our supporters are also encouraged to pitch in if possible. (The ducky race tickets are in the process of being printed and will be ready for sale by early June. The beginning of the ducky race is tide dependent.) As you spring clean, or receive gifts that you are willing to donate (valued $5.00 or more) — or if you are able to collect donated promotional products from the places where you do business — or discover great items on sale — please keep prizes in mind for our annual stick draws.  Monetary donations are also encouraged if the providing of prizes is not possible. We also need “larger-valued prizes” to attract more people to purchase sticks. If you are able to donate or know of someone (a business) who might provide larger-valued prizes, we would be pleased to acknowledge the donated item(s). Adult and Junior members will be contacted by our rink’s executive members for prize donation(s).

Contact me (902.533.2528) or Phil (902.533.2539) to arrange for prizes pickup.

Thanks. Ray

Sydney Nova Scotia Bid for 2018 Scotties….

Sydney Nova Scotia is bidding to host the Scotties Tournament of Hearts from February 4th to 11th, 2018. We’re writing to invite your members, and your members’ family and friends, to join us at the Scotties in Cape Breton.

The bid is being put forward by a local committee and is supported by the four Cape Breton Island curling clubs: the Baddeck Curling Club, the Schooner Curling Club, the Strait Area Curling Club, and the Sydney Curling Club.

To strengthen our bid, we are offering a pre-sale on a week-long event pass. A $100 deposit will hold your seat at the Scotties. This offer ends June 17, 2016. If the bid isn’t successful, the $100 deposit will be refunded.

Please find attached a flyer with more information. As I write this, the link to purchase deposits online isn’t yet active, but we anticipate that it will be active very soon. Please share this information with your members. The more community support we have, the stronger our bid will be.

See you in Sydney at the 2018 Scotties!

Prizes needed for Stick Pick game at the Ducky Race and Chicken BBQ on Sunday July 24th…

Looking for prizes for the Ducky Race & Chicken BBQ on Sunday, July 24 from 1-4 PM for the Stick-Pick game. As in former years, we usually ask for a couple prizes from each of you (around $5) or whatever you can afford.  It is always nice to get a few BIG things to draw the crowd.  If some of you would rather donate money, that’s ok too.  Call Phil or Ray for drop-off details or email the club.
