WESTRIDGE CURLING CLUB
5400-52 STREET STONY PLAIN Alberta
Dear 2016/17 Westridge Curlers,
On behalf of the Westridge Board of Directors we would like to thank each one of you for a great season of curling and for supporting our local club. We look forward to seeing you again next season. As you are ambassadors of our club, spread the word of curling to others.
We want to share some of our successes and even a few challenges with you. We got some new curlers this year and some that came back to curling after more than 20 years away from the game. So, talk to your neighbors, friends and family about signing up next year. You might not know who was a curler or who might want to get into the game. The more people/teams we get, the more fun the leagues will be. The club saw a number of private function where those present had a great time whether it was their first time or 100th time on the ice.
Congratulations to all the winners of each league. Next year we might be adding a mid-season bonus for the leaders, details to come next season.
Thanks to all the volunteers who put in their time and talent to make everyone's experience that much better. There was a number of functions put on this year from Bonspiels to Tea Days, Wind Up party and Casinos. It takes a number of volunteers to make all of the events happen so thank you. Thank you to the league reps and those that provide their time and talent to our junior curlers, without you it would be very difficult to run this club.
Thanks to all those who volunteered on our board to try and make it a better club overall. We all try our best to make the club better. Not every time do we make the right decision in the end, but we all try based on the information we have at the time. We are learning from our successes and our challenges. Thanks to all those who helped with the upgrades, we again had many this year. 2016/17 saw upgrades to the viewing area, new rink heaters and now looking at a new compressor and changing the cooling system out. As of today, we still have the old Freon in the system that is being phased out. So as you can see, it was a very busy year.
Thanks to Vern for all his effort with the ice and to Dianne and her team in the lounge, they did a fantastic job this year.
If you are interested in helping out next season let a current board member know. Everyone is invited to help make our club successful. If you have suggestions to help make Westridge even better, please let us know. Check our website for information for the 2017/18 season, AGM and registration night will be the first part of September.
Hope to see you all next season,
Michelle, Vice President
And the entire Board

Message from the Club President
Welcome curlers to another great season of curling. We know you have choices where you
can curl and we are very pleased that you have chosen the Westridge Curling Club.
The Board of Directors would like to share with you information on the happening this season in the club.
We encourage you to head upstairs after your games to enjoy the new look and feel of
our upstairs viewing area. A lot of work has been put into our upstairs viewing area and we
are excited to share it with you.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard in making the updates happen.
We have had a change in our Board of Directors for the 2016/17 season.
We would like to thank our outgoing past President Jack Dixon for all his work over the
years, your contribution to our club has been very much appreciated. We would also like to
thank our new Past President, Dale McCracken for his guidance and passion over his tenure as President and look forward his input as Past President.
You will notice your team has been given 100 tickets to sell for the Grey Cup. It is
imperative you do your best to sell all of the tickets issued to your team and, if you need
more, there are plenty to be had from your League Rep. This is one way for our club to
generate some extra revenue and assist in keeping the costs to you to a minimum. You are
responsible for the tickets and therefore are responsible for the money. Please return the
sold ticket stubs, as well as any unsold tickets, to your League Rep before November 25,
Our club also hosts several Bonspiels throughout the season and we encourage our own
membership to enter as many as they desire. This is another way of generating extra
revenue for the club as well as having a great time playing against teams from other clubs.
Here is the list:
December 3, 2016 - The Junior Spiel - coordinator needed
January 20-22, 2017 - The Men's Spiel - Ray Lipiec
February 10-12, 2017 - The Ladies Spiel - Charlene Luberda/Janine Garley
March 03-05, 2017 - The Mixed Open Spiel (must have at least 1 member of
opposite gender) - coordinator needed
A reminder to all, please ensure your entire team has paid in full and has their name on a
registration sheet before October 30th so we can get the roster books up and running.

Tuesday Afternoon - Wendy Tremblay
Tuesday Men's -Gary Fahl
Wednesday Junior's - Volunteer Needed (Dianne Lukey-acting)

Have a wonderful year, and if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask any of our executive:
Kevin Hedley, Michele Aasgard, Sherin Hayman, Shara Webster, Dale McCracken,
Elaine Anderson, Christina Robin, Darren Weber, Marj Ferguson, Kristine Olson, Marc
Peninou, and joyce Forbes.
Also, please look at the Open Volunteer Spots. We need help in those positions. Without help,
things will not run as smoothly or properly.
We also need help with a Website Administrator (you will get in house training on the site) and a
Treasurer in Training (our treasurer will step down after this year, so will be much easier
if you start now). If interested, let any of the board member know.
Also, if you have any suggestions on how to improve our club, please forward them on to any of us.
Every suggestion is discussed.
