The Club Championships are on now. Come on down and watch our Women’s, Men’s and Mixed teams play through April 1st. There could possibly be a game on April 2nd depending on the winner of the A/B game. Concession and Bar will be open!
Our Annual AGM is coming up on Wednesday, April 1st at 6:30pm. This is your Curling Club, we’d love for you to come and find out how your Club is doing and if you are interested in sitting on our Board of Directors, check in with Nicole in the office. We have 3 board members who are not seeking re-election. If you see Dave Klatchuk, Pam Rogers or Judy Erickson please thank them for their commitment and many volunteer hours they have given to SACC. Dave Klatchuk was on the board for 10 years and was the President following the new front end being built, an extremely important time in our Club. Dave is a key reason why our club is so successful today. Pam Rogers was on the board for 6 years, the last 4 she steered our Youth program. We have gone from a handful of juniors to 44 kids after school on Thursday and 58 Little rockers on Sunday. Judy Erickson came on board 2 years ago. With Judy’s “human resources” background, we now have proper job descriptions in place and she was an integral part of the hiring committee who hired a pretty dang good Manager!
SACC is proud to announce the accomplishments of members EVAN ASMUSSEN (Third) & ANDREW O’DELL (Lead) along with teammates Thomas Scoffin (Skip), Jason Ginter (Second) and Braden Powers (Alternate) for winning GOLD representing the U of A Golden Bears Curling team at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championships (CIS) – Mar 18th-22nd in Waterloo Ontario. Evan represented Canada winning GOLD at the 2012 World Junior Championships in Ostersund, Sweden and this weekend he was able to add SECOND ALL-CANADIAN TEAM-VICE to his curling resume. Congratulations Evan, Andrew and Team!
On that note, our manager, Nicole, would like to congratulate former athletes Taylor Theroux and Alison Kotylak along with teammates Kelsey Rocque, Taylor McDonald and Claire Tully – all of the U of A Pandas Curling team who also won GOLD at CIS in Waterloo! And, congratulations to her former athletes, Danielle Schmiemann, Holly Jamieson and Jesse Iles along with Kelsey Rocque and Kristen Streifel for winning GOLD at the 2015 World Junior Championships in Estonia. “It was a pleasure coaching these ladies!”
ON TAP! Congratulations to SACC member Doug McLennan - Third, current SACC Director, former President, Manager, Treasurer, Building Committee member, all around fun guy and snappy dresser (probably missed a few volunteer positions too!) and his teammates Glen Hansen (Skip), George Parsons (Second) and Don Bartlett for representing "ALBerrrrta!" at the Everest Canadian Senior Championships being held Mar 21st-28th at the Thistle CC. Doug and Company had a 4/1 record going into Day 4 of competition; beating Al Hackner "the Iceman” 9/4 in their opening game! GO TEAM GO!
