Wayne Sangster — a Chedabucto CC member — has led his Team Sangster to the honour of being the Nova Scotia Senior Men’s Champions. Team Sangster’s impressive victory has qualified them to travel to Edmonton later this month to compete in the Canadian Men’s Seniors Curling Championship: http://www.curling.ca/2015seniors/
Wayne, representing Nova Scotia, Guysborough County, Chedabucto CC and all who appreciate curling, leaves for Edmonton on March 19, 2015. So as to represent all Nova Scotian curlers — both Senior and younger — Wayne will be faced with his personal out-of-pocket expenses of two thousand dollars ($2,000.00).
The Chedabucto Curling Club Community Activity Society (CAS) is stepping into the hack and will strive to raise funds to donate to Wayne for his Canadian championship expenses. It is not every day that we can have someone of Wayne’s calibre representing our rink and this corner of Nova Scotia therefore it is imperative for all of us to help as much as we are able.
With 100% of CAS’s executive’s approval I have been authorized to sell two awarded tickets on a double pass for a Saturday game at the Men’s World’s Curling Championship in Halifax. The tickets will be $2.00 each or $5.00 for an arm’s length. The total amount collected from the sale of those tickets will be donated to Wayne to assist with offsetting the costs of representing all of us at the Canadian Men’s Seniors. The tickets will be sold during the day leagues, night leagues and the Ladies St. Patrick’s FUNspiel next weekend with the lucky ticket to be selected on March 14th at the rink.
However — if you prefer to simply make a donation to Wayne’s Championship expenses, CAS will gladly accept whatever your contributions might be and ensure that that too goes to Wayne. Contact me, stop by the rink, come to my home, mail a cheque payable to CAS, hide money under a rock in my front yard but tell me where to look. Let’s get 100% behind Wayne and Team Sangster to help them get on the podium in Edmonton. Wayne leaves on March 19 so let’s make March 17 our collection conclusion so all moneys collected can be given to Wayne before he departs. Good curling Wayne and Team Sangster!
