New for the AMCC Lounge: Pinball Tables!

AMCC is excited to announce that we will be offering pinball tables as entertainment in our lounge this season, thanks to a partnership with the Manitoba Pinball Association!

20170311 105133 400x150

The first tables will be in-place for all lounge guests to use when the Club opens for the season (per-game cost ranges from $0.50 - $1.25). Games will be rotated regularly to keep things fresh and give all of our guests a chance to try the more popular games. Renters will have the option of keeping the machines on or shutting them off during special events.

As part of this partnership, the The Manitoba Pinball League will host a number of pinball tournaments throughout the curling season, which are generally open for anyone age 18+ to enter. The first one will coincide with the Atkins Curling Supplies Classic Bonspiel, October 12-15 - click here for details.

Watch our social media feeds and website for events throughout this curling season. For more information about the Manitoba Pinball League, please visit their website: http://www.manitobapinball.com

Please join us in welcoming our new entertainment partners for the 2018-19 curling season!

Like throwing heavy rocks at houses? Just interested in finding out what the sport is like? Come curl with us!

Need a beak in your weekly routine? Are you new to the neighborhood, and want to meet some new people while having fun and getting some exercise? Want to make your Manitoba winter seem shorter while participating in a sport that you might have seen on TV (but never tried yourself)?

If any of the above applies to you, and you are a first-time or novice (<1 year experience) curler over 18 years of age, the AMCC Adult Learn to Curl Program (in its second year at AMCC) is designed for you. Returning after a successful start at AMCC in 2017, your membership in this year's Adult Learn to Curl Instructional League will offer:

  • 16 weeks of curling beginning after Thanksgiving weekend (ending in mid-March).
    • A typical session will include about 80 minutes of on-ice activity and 30 minutes of discussion indoors.
    • Eight weeks of on- and off-ice instruction and skill development - two facilitators assigned per sheet.
    • Eight weeks of additional ice time with emphasis on game play (with facilitators available to assist participants at all times).
  • Equipment available to borrow from the club - until December. You need to supply a comfortable pair of athletic pants (e.g. jogging pants), clean indoor running shoes, and a non-fleece sweater / hoodie, and light winter gloves (on-ice temperature is a few degrees above freezing - much warmer than most Manitoba winter days).
  • LOTTSA instruction at first: Terminology, Etiquette, Rules, Walking on Ice, Delivery, Sweeping, Judging weight, Judging line, Strategy, etc. Less instruction as the season progresses. Not so much instruction at the end of the season.
  • First few weeks are based around basics, then we move into skill development, challenges, small games, mini-league.
  • Social events in December and March (participants don't need to organize, but will be asked for their preferences).
  • Kitchen open for breakfast before and lunch after Lounge open for refreshments.
  • Choice of 11:00 am / 2:00 pm Sunday time slots (subject to participant interest and instructor availability).
  • All this for $300 (comparable fee to Mens' League - and they don't get most of the above).
  • No 50/50 draw, fundraising raffles, requests to be Treasurer or Secretary, or attend a meeting. Just show up ready to play and have some fun!
  • Risk-free trial: Two weeks of participation allowed before committing to a full season.

Learn to Curl is not a clinic (which typically lasts a few hours) - it is a multi-week instructional league experience specifically designed for new curlers.

Welcome AMCC's new Club Manager

As many people have already heard, our current club manager Paul Batchelor has decided to step away from the position. Paul has done a fantastic job in his role as Club Manager, and so I am glad to announce he has agreed to join the board of directors. Replacing Paul will be a familiar face to some of our long-time members of the club.

club manager aug2018Jody Smart (pictured) will be joining the AMCC as our new club manager. More recently, Jody has been the bar manager at the Deer Lodge Curling club. She hasn’t been a stranger to our curling facility though as she has been playing in our Wednesday Business Women’s league in recent years.

All of us on the Board are excited to have her back at the club and wish her luck in her new position at AMCC.
