Greetings and Good News
Today is the first day of open registration for our club. Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers we are ready to start our season (a very speical thanks for holiday weekend efforts to John Bast, Sam Johnson and Pete Marsnik for getting PayPal up and running). Please, during your registration process, make sure your Skip has contacted your League Convenor and established your team in that League. (Convenor names can be found at the end of my missive). For anyone having trouble registering, please let myself or John Bast know!!
There is an open Board Meeting this evening (4 Sept at 1800 at Modicum Brewery) and a mandatory Convenors meeting tomorrow (5 Sept at 1800 also at Modicum's back room).
There is much to do and there will be a "slightly changed" ice-in schedule posted here very soon. All help will be welcome and we will be discussing (at this Board meeting) some type of incentive for those that are willing to help Jason and become part of each Leagues ice help.
There is our Season Opening Party 6 October starting at 1600 at Modicum Brewery. Party details will be forthcoming shortly and will be posted here. Needless to say there will be beer and curling fellowship - the reason for the slight delay in details - discussion on how to feed the huge number of people I expect to see there. We will most likely charge a small fee - any money that we would bring in extra (hint here toward donations) will go toward our new (just being announced right here) efforts at giving our building a more CLUBLIKE feel. Every single member should chime in and give us written ideas just to what that means to them.
We're on our way - our season is here. I expect every single club member to enjoy this season to it's fullest. On those rare nights you aren't curling - show up - have a beer - cheer on your fellow curlers - you may see something that makes you decide to write in a season end award (fun and serious allowed) to deposit in the box you'll see on the counter this year.
Cheers and Good Curling,
J. Todd Berg, President ECCC
