Featuring our very own ‘cover-guy’ Marc Kennedy!
This annual fundraising campaign raises funds for a number of Charitable Benefactors each year. The last Men of Curling calendar in 2014 raised over $120,000! Rumour has it that Marc may be hanging out around the club to sell this year’s calendar ‘in person’ – so you may be lucky enough to get an autographed copy!
Calendars are $20 incl gst and may also be purchased in the office. Cash only, please.
Marc’s exclusive sales will benefit the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation & Simply Supper Helps.

The Team says: “Thank you to Nicole and the St. Albert Curling Club and icemaker, Audra for practice ice.” And, they have extended an invitation to “Anyone in a wheel chair and wanting to try wheelchair curling, please visit the Edmonton Rocks website to find details on where and when to come.
