Pot luck at noon in rink on Thursday….

Greetings of the season to all.  (This invite extends to day leagues and night leagues.)

This Thursday we will be having our Christmas pot luck dinner at our curling rink. There will be the usual morning games but no curling at lunch time. In lieu of afternoon curling there will be our Christmas gathering to celebrate friendships and “break bread together” as we move into this special and joyous weekend.

On behalf of all at the Chedabucto CC I extend a warm invite to you to attend if your schedule permits. Friends and family members are also welcome to join our festive get-together. The only “charge” is to bring something as a contribution to the serving table so as to enable all to have a bite or two as we gather for our celebration.

Best wishes to you and yours


Chedabucto CC 50/50 tickets now available….

The Chedabucto CC’s 50/50 tickets are now available to sell.

I’ll take tickets to the rink tonight and they will be located in the 50/50 box on the table next to the bar.  This Saturday 50/50 tickets will also be distributed to the juniors for their selling over Christmas. All efforts to sell will be sincerely appreciated.

As decided at the Chedabucto CC semi-annual general meeting in October, the cost of Chedabucto CC’s tickets will be $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00. Also decided at that same meeting, tickets will not be located at the business locations within Guysborough.

So as to get a reasonable-sized prize, the first 50/50 draw will happen on the weekend of the Edgar Sceles Memorial Bonspiel, January 21, 2017.

If you have any questions or ideas for how more tickets can be sold, please contact me.


Thank you to Wayne, Mable and George plus those who attended….

Thank you to Wayne and Mable Hyam plus George Luddington for their efforts and donations to enable the use of our rink this past Saturday evening for a curling social.

The participants had a 4-ender game and then two games of banging a turkey around the ice. The first turkey shoot was for a box of chocolates that was donated by Mable and won — but shared — by Evelyne Jamieson. The second shoot was for the turkey that was donated by George and won by Vanessa Dort.

In addition to the members (adults and juniors) who showed up to participate and/or to watch there were 2 new-to-curling participants who also had an enjoyable evening. As well as curlers there were spectators present to enjoy the curling and our facility.

Wayne, Mable and George did a great job of pulling things together for the enjoyment of those who attended. It would be nice if such socials could become monthly gatherings thereby enabling our rink to be used more often and possibly attracting new members.

Cheers :
