AMCC Hosts Manitoba Curling Tour Event

The AMCC was extremely pleased to host 8 of the top teams in the Province 8-10 Jan 2016 as they participated in the Manitoba Curling Tour Ladies Open spiel. The very strong field used the opportunity to prepare for the Provincial Scotties, win some cash and earn MCT points.

Based on Round Robin win/loss records the top 4 teams Kim Link, Joelle Brown, Janet Harvey and Darcy Robertson advanced to the Championship Playoff (shootout results were used to break ties) while Kerri Einarson, Michelle Montford, Shannon Birchard and Barb Spencer were relegated to the Consolation Playoff. Darcy Robertson and Kim Link won their respective semi final matches advancing to the final game where Darcy prevailed in an extra end. Robertson earned $1,300 while Link picked up $950 for second place with semi finalists Harvey/Brown receiving $750 each. Montford and Birchard split the Consolation $250.

Of note: 4 of the top 5 seeds for the Provincial Scotties were in the field (Einarson #2, Spencer #3, Montford #4 and Robertson #5). We wish all of these teams great curling in Beausejour with special emphasis on club members (Spencer, Montford and Brown).

The competitors and numerous spectators spoke very highly of all aspects regarding our great facility and agreed that the competition should do them in good stead starting the middle of next week. Special thanks to the hardworking staff, volunteers and participants for their untiring efforts in the success of this high level event. Also appreciation to those leagues, who so willing adjusted their draw times, in order to meet the commitments of the MCT Ladies Open.

Men’s League 2015 Contribution to The Christmas Cheer Board

Once again the AMCC Men’s League was able to contribute to the Christmas Cheer Board. A total contribution in the amount of $292.60 was given to Jim Bender on Thu Dec 28th.

The amount represents $268.50 raised through the Men’s League 50/50 draws during December. The balance of $24.10 was loose change dropped in the Christmas Cheer Board jar at the bar.

Jim expressed appreciation to the AMCC Men’s Leagues for their contribution and hoped they would be able to continue in future.

Thanks to all and happy New Year!

Second Half of the 2015/16 Curling Season Underway

Another Christmas / New Years has wound down and curlers are returning to our great ice in an effort to work off some of the extra calories resulting from too much food and drink. In addition to regularly scheduled league play, the Club will also be hosting a number of events commencing 8-10 Jan 2016 with the MCT Ladies Open Bonspiel. The Spiel will feature AMCC's Michelle Montford, Joelle Brown and Barb Spencer as they compete against five other teams (all with berths in the Provincial Scotties) for cash and MCT points while preparing to win Manitoba. Free admission to some great curling with draws at 5 pm Friday, 4 pm Saturday, 11 am Sunday and playoffs at 2 pm and 5 pm on Sunday.

The Montford, Brown and Spencer teams have a very good chance of winning the Province. The JT Ryan and Laura Burtnyk AMCC teams are strong favourites to capture the Provincial Juniors which start this week in Rivers. In addition the Dennis Bohn squad will be highly rated at the Provincial Mens Championship scheduled for mid-February in Selkirk.

The Board Of Directors, staff and Management appreciate your continued patronage of our great facility and hope that all of you thoroughly enjoy the second half of the season.

AMCC Hosts Successful Regional Qualifiers

The AMCC was extremely pleased to host the 18 team Masters Winnipeg Regional Qualfiers 15-17 Dec 2015. Following 3 days of intense competition the teams of Dave Johannson (Thistle CC), defending Canadian Champions Ron Westcott (Fort Rouge CC), Doug Harrison (Heather CC) and Wayne Johnson (AMCC) earned berths in the Provincial Championships hosted by the Thistle Curling Club 10-14 Mar 2016. All of these teams will be great representatives of the Winnipeg Region and could quite easily win the Provincial Championship moving on to represent Manitoba at the National Championship in Truro NS.

Special thanks to Matt and his hard working ice crew for providing a great curling surface, Cindy and the always friendly bar staff for providing liquid refreshment and Vance for ensuring full stomachs at a reasonable cost. In keeping with the Club's voluntary spirit, George Wildeman, Sue Maxwell and Dorothy Hollins served as Event Assistants ensuring the timely completion of the many administrative functions.

Drop by the Thistle Curling Club 10-14 Mar 2016 and cheer on the Winnipeg Region teams (particularly Wayne, Kelly, Al and Henry from our great club).
