Volunteer Post-season Improvements

Earlier in April, AMCC's Masters League, Senior Men’s League, and Stick Leagues all contributed to the undertaking of a restaurant flooring upgrade project.

April 9 was the day volunteers chose to prepare for the new flooring for the Restaurant. Taking out the flooring and Tile was a difficult dusty undertaking. George Archibald, Harry Dyck, John Abrams, Rick Park, and Pat Kilcullen took the dirty job and worked until it was finished.

Norm Scott, Sid Biliski, Harold Cook, Archie Mullin, Barb Sadler, and Georgina Mullin cleaned the dust and washed down the restaurant etc.

Harold Cook, Dave Boehmer, and Greg Lavalee worked long hours to prepare the flooring and put down the New flooring. Harold Cook ‘s company FISC supplied much of the flooring products for the undertaking.

The CFB League will be installing new window blinds at a later date. Thanks to the dedicated volunteers for these improvements to the Restaurant.

As another curling season comes to an end, we would like to say a final "thank you" to all of our sponsors, supporters, volunteers, and of course - curlers, for another successful year at Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club.

Co-inciding with the arrival (finally!) of nice Spring weather - our annual volunteer appreciation night will be held on April 20 (watch our Facebook page for pictures) - and planning is already well underway for the 2018-19 season!
