As the Club returns to a state of normalcy following the "invasion" of some 150, 16 and under curlers along with their support group of coaches, family and friends - I would like to extend sincere appreciation to Loyd, George, Dorothy, Sue and Elsie for putting in some looooong days in direct support of the Youth Spring spiel. As Event Assistants, Loyd, Dorothy, Sue and Elsie ensured that the event ran smoothly while George's sale of 50/50 tickets resulted in a pretty decent contribution to the Club's Bank Account.
Thanks to Matt and his crew for providing great ice while keeping the facility as neat and tidy as possible given the very limited time between draws and large crowds throughout the 3 days. The bar staff are to be commended for dealing with periods of fairly busy activity, interdispersed with periods of complete boredom and the ever present popcorn cleanup. Boredom was definitely not a factor with the Restaurant staff as they endeavoured to cope with a large demand for food service compounded by the limited time between draws and space constraints. Of note - Curl MB will be revising the draw format for future Youth Spring Spiels in order to make the event more manageable from a Club perspective.
Hope to see many of you at the season ending Funspiel!
