In 2015 and 2016, with the help and participation of other club members, I brought live streaming to the Golden Gate Bonspiel via the club YouTube channel (bayareacurling). As a board member, I'd pursue the following objectives:
• opportunities for draws at different times or new locations
I'm thankful SFBACC existed to introduce me to curling, and I, like all of you, will do my part to build on the efforts of volunteers that made that possible. Board members contribute significantly to that effort, and I'd be glad to be among them.
Hi, my name is Mary Riordan. For those of you who do not know me, I began curling in the fall of 2014 in both San Jose and on Friday nights in Oakland. Since that fall, I have curled regularly in San Jose & Fremont and occasionally in Oakland. I have also had the good fortune to have played in our local bonspiel and am looking forward to a great event this year. Aside from my love of the game (sometimes a love-hate relationship), the camaraderie of my fellow curlers has been the highlight of my experience.
Please consider me as an At-Large Director - Since becoming a member of the club during the last Olympic cycle, I have become a Level 1 and Wheelchair curling instructor and have taught learn to curls and Junior lesson series and am proud to represent our club at bonspiels and local events. I feel a great sense of purpose when it comes to sharing the love and spirit of curling, and feel this will be important as we expect many new faces in the coming year.
