Update on Junior curling

Before formal and finalized information is sent about this year’s Junior (ages 10 years +) curling I thought it best to give you some tentative news for this year’s Junior curling. I met with Principal Avery and Recreation Director Angie Traveres last week; both on firmly onside with their support for our young curlers.

Our tentative start-up date will be Wednesday, November 4, from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. A school bus will be available again to transport the curlers to the curling rink but a note to grant permission for the bus transportation MUST be sent by the Juniors’ parents to the school office before November 4. That requirement will be mentioned again in the letter that will be coming home from the school before the end of October.

The Junior dues for this year are again only $25.00 (that included tax).

Donalda Mattie, Turning Point Curling School, has agreed to be our lead coach pending our rink obtaining the necessary provincial funding to cover her costs. If you know of other youngsters who are interested in the Chedabucto Curling Club’s Junior Program please share this information with them and their parents. Over the next two weeks there are some points that I need to firm up and then a formal letter will come home via the school, over the rink’s web site and by way of email. Spread the word about this year’s Juniors.  We are working on some ideas to make it even better than it already is therefore more excitement for all involved.

My best wishes to all for an enjoyable Thanksgiving.
