AMCC Stick Curlers Emerge Victorious

Click for larger imageThe AMCC was pleased to host the 12th Annual Provincial Sticks Curling Championship 19-21 Feb 2016. A total of 40 teams, comprised of 10 or 11 from the AMCC with the balance from City and Rural clubs, took to the pebbled surface for 3 days of intense competition. The hardworking MSCA Host Committee, in concert with Club staff, ensured the delivery of a first class event culminating in many positive reviews.

In spite of a fairly busy schedule, all participants found time to socialize and talk about the "curling days that were" and how the advent of the delivery stick has extended their enjoyment of the roaring game while introducing many new folks to the sport. It is generally acknowledged that many curling facilities and individuals continue to benefit from the phenomenal growth of Stick Curling. 

Although many of the AMCC teams attained good results it was left to John Barzarkewich and Marty Nechwediuk to better the field and capture the Provincial Championship. John and Marty are pictured proudly holding the Provincial trophy surrounded by some of their fellow stickers. In addition to the Championship laurels, John and Marty will also receive a small allowance, from the MSCA, to offset some of their travel expenses as they represent the Province at the National Championship in Vernon BC. The Board of Directors and all members of the AMCC wish them good curling in Vernon and know that they will represent us very well.

Student Journalist - Stick Curling Video

On Wednesday February 10th, a student journalist by the name of Samantha Samson came to the St. Vital Curling Club and interviewed Warren Johnson and a few others during the three draws we have. Samantha picked “Stick Curling in the Community” as her project at Red River. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/YmuyMoOWaJM

We are thankful to Samantha for her story on “Stick Curling” and we are hopeful this encourages growth in this great sport.

 

A quick reminder to everyone that the Manitoba Provincials are being held February 19 - 21 at Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club. Encourage your members to come out and watch. 


Thanks

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.
