AMCC Past Presidents Turn Out In Record Numbers

A record number of Past Presidents attended the Celebration of Life for Mel Rogers held 13 May at the Viscount Gort.   The Purple Patch definitely stood out in the rather large crowd receiving many compliments about the blazers and the excellent turn out.  The family was particularly appreciative of this overwhelming display of respect for Mel and made a point of including his club blazer on the table of memories.

In his remarks, on behalf of the Board of Directors and all members, Paul noted that Mel was a relatively young President in 1974-75 at a time when the club was being rebuilt, membership was flourishing, impressive bar revenues made up for the opportunity to apply for Financial Grants, the club rooms were blue with smoke and Minutes of meetings were either handwritten or documented on a (manual) typewriter and copied for distribution.  Paul further recognized the efforts of all Past Presidents and many other AMCC folks in attendance for their untiring work in making our Club one of the best in the City, if not the entire Province, while lamenting the fact that volunteerism is undergoing a significant downturn.  

Given the large crowd and many (mostly humorous) stories it was quite obvious that Mel led a full life and touched many people during his 72 years on this side of the grass.

AMCC Hosts Annual Volunteer Appreciation Night

In what is developing into a very popular event, Club President Loyd Olson was pleased to host the annual Volunteer Appreciation the evening of 15 April 2016.

Many of those in attendance were awarded Certificates of Appreciation recognizing their unselfish contributions to the Club in a variety of roles and responsibilities. Others had already either received this recognition in the past or will receive their Certificates at a later date. It was particularly encouraging to see so many hard working League Convenors in attendance.

Both Councillor Shawn Dobson and retired MLA Jim Rondeau spoke very highly of our great club and the sense of pride which is so prevalent throughout the facility. In thanking Jim for his outstanding support of the AMCC during his years in Office Club Manager, Paul Batchelor, echoed the thoughts of many in attendance by referring to Jim as more of a "Constituency Worker" than a Politician.

Looking ahead to the 2016/17 curling season there is little doubt that the AMCC spirit of volunteerism will continue to be the envy of so many other clubs.

AMCC Men Win Daytime Championships

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.
