Apr 30 - Breaking News: AMCC-based Team Manitoba captures Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship. The team will be arriving back in Winnipeg at 10:34 am Monday via West Jet and will piped home by our very own Hilda Towercey.
The AMCC was extremely pleased to be given the opportunity to host the Past Presidents Association of Manitoba Curling Clubs annual dinner on the evening of 24 April 2017. Some 75 Past Presidents, many proudly wearing their respective club colours, joined invited guests for an evening of socializing, great food, a short meeting and door prizes.
Attendees were entertained by high level curlers Raunora Westcott (began her illustrious curling career at the AMCC and currently a member of Team Englot) and Mark Franklin (many on ice achievements and most recently skip of the Provincial Masters Championship team). Both athletes recognized the corporate knowledge and volunteerism displayed by the Past Presidents and their respective Boards over many, many years. The acknowledged success of this Event was due in large part to Vance and his hardworking food services staff, excellent bar service provided by Cindy/Jaime and the talents of Pat McCaughan in creating very well received table decorations.
The AMCC would be pleased to serve as the host club for this prestigious event well into the future. In the meantime, an agreement has been reached whereby our great facility will host the steak BBQ component of the annual Past Presidents Association's golf/dinner event scheduled for 15 June 2017.
