AMCC Hosts Successful Past Presidents Dinner

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.

Business of Curling

business of curlingEven as the end of the 2016-17 curling season has passed, AMCC volunteers remain hard at work preparing for next season (and beyond).

Loyd Olson (Club President), Paul Batchelor (Club Manager), and Kevin Nakonechny (Webmaster) were among delegates from a minority of Winnipeg curling clubs, and several rural Manitoba curling clubs of all sizes, in attendance at the Business of Curling seminar on April 21-23 at the Best Western Plus Winnipeg Airport hotel.

Sponsored by Curl Manitoba and presented by Curling Canada, formal presentations by full-time curling experts from across Canada covered topics in the following broad areas:

Attracting new curlers

  • Curling 101 (a curling introductory follow-up to "Rocks and Rings," which was presented at AMCC this year for the first time)
  • Adult Learn to Curl
  • Social Media Buying
  • Building Capacity

Servicing our customers (everybody who sets foot in our facility - to curl or not) better

  • Scraping, stones, water, paint
  • Bonspiels
  • Delivering Superior Customer Service
  • IMF Registration System

Tools and techniques for making our curling club financially sustainable (without simply raising membership fees every year!)

  • Risk Management
  • Energy Conservation
  • Volunteers

Informal networking and discussion of success / failure stories between seminar attendees also provided an invaluable learning experience.

What does this all mean for AMCC? - exciting possibilities for the future of our Club and all of the people it serves. Further details will be shared through the Board in the weeks and months to come; attendance at this year's AGM is highly encouraged, if you are curious for a sneak peek.
