After suffering a round robin loss to St Vital, the AMCC team of Lawrie Hogg, David Green, Bill Mamchuk and Larry Weatherburn rebounded by defeating the same Dave Romano team in the Mens final of the Winnipeg Curling Club Association Daytime Championships hosted by the Heather Curling Club 4-7 Apr 2017. The Event which featured 10 mens and 7 ladies teams, representing the majority of curling clubs across the City, continues to grow in popularity and skill levels. The WCCA, in particular event organizer Marion Krienke, and the host curling club are to be congratulated for a job very well done (sentiments expressed by many of the competitors) . Dates and venue for the 2016/17 Championship have yet to be determined.
