AMCC Teams Impress at MCT Championships

For the second year in a row, the AMCC team of Michelle Montford, Lisa DeRiviere, Sara Van Walleghem and Sarah Neufeld (pictured below) captured the MCT Championship held in Dauphin by virtue of a very narrow defeat over club mate Joelle Brown and her team (Allyssa Calvert, Erika Sigurdson and Lindsay Baldock). In addition to winning some cash, both teams also earned berths in the Provincial Scotties Tournament of Hearts where they will be joined by the Barb Spencer team also from the AMCC. Special mention to Beth Peterson (Fort Rouge / AMCC) for a very respectable semi final finish in spite of playing the entire event with only three curlers.

Team Montford
Montford, Brown and Spencer have confirmed their entry in the MCT Ladies Open January 7-10, 2016 at the AMCC. They will be joined by other high level teams as they attempt to win some cash and MCT / CTRS points while preparing for the Provincial Scotties. Club members, guests, and friends of curling are strongly encouraged to take in the action (draw TBA).

Rounding out the success of our Associate Member teams, Dennis Bohn and his AMCC squad earned a berth in the Viterra Men's Provincial Championship a result of their final MCT ranking position.

The Board of Directors and all members of the AMCC are extremely proud of the success enjoyed by these teams and wish them continued good curling in the season ahead.

Purple Power

Past Presidents

For the first time in many years, your Board Of Directors was very pleased to host a Past Presidents Brunch meeting on Sunday, 15 November 2015. The truly overwhelming participation and productive discussions confirmed the benefits accruing to the Club by the continued contributions of the very knowledgeable, "purple to the core", individuals as pictured.

Building on the success of this event, concerted efforts have begun to establish a Past Presidents' Association for the betterment of our great facility well into the future.

Manitoba Tuck Delivery Training Session

Participants took to our great ice for a video analysis of their delivery supplemented by constructive input from Connie, Jon and BJ.The AMCC was extremely pleased to be given the opportunity to host the Manitoba Tuck Delivery Training Session on the afternoon of 8 November 2015.  

Thanks to the efforts of Connie Laliberte (Curl MB High Performance Director), ably assisted by long time "tuckers" Jon Mead and BJ Neufeld, approximately 20 curlers from a variety of City and Rural Curling Clubs were afforded the opportunity to fine tune their current delivery or learn the fundamentals of the Manitoba Tuck.  

Following an hour of classroom instruction the participants took to our great ice for a video analysis of their delivery supplemented by constructive input from Connie, Jon and BJ.  From all indications the "Manitoba Tuck" will continue to have a long future in our great game.

Question of the day - What do you call a curler with a partial flat foot/partial tuck delivery?
Answer: A "flucker!"

2015/16 Curling Season Gets Off To A Very Busy Start

 

 Matt and his hardworking crew had the ice ready to go as scheduled with the Ernie Oliver Stick Spiel running 30 Sep - 01 Oct.  This annual event featured great curling and socialization while providing some participants with their first exposure to this growing sport.  The First Event was captured by long time stickers Johnson/Carman, Second Event Oliver/Sobkowicz, Third Event Campbell/Campbell with Cook/Nechwediuk winning the Fourth Event.  

 
Evenings 30 Sep - 02 Oct 2015 featured very successful curling clinics.  Thanks in large part to the organizational skills of Club President, Loyd Olson, the expertise of Curl MB instructors and a number of volunteers many individuals were able to fine tune their skill levels, change some bad habits or learn the game from ground zero.  Hoping to capitalize on this success, Loyd is considering a November Refresher Clinic (more details to follow).
 
As pictured, the Club was very pleased to host the National Wheelchair Team Training Camp 02-04 Oct, featuring our very own Dennis Thiessen and Jamie Anseeuw.  Dennis was joined by other members of the Paralympic Gold Medal team which included Jim Armstrong (a six time Brier participant "back in the day".)  Except for short lunch breaks these truly remarkable athletes were on the ice from first thing in the morning until mid-late day (a real inspiration).
 
Our great facility received some very positive comments throughout this rather busy start which bodes well for the season ahead.  Some leagues have already started while others hit the ice after Thanksgiving.  Contact your respective League Convenor if not sure of first draw, every effort will be made to post schedules on the website.
 
Have a great season
 
Paul B
Club Manager
