To SFBACC members,
As you know, the USCA has been holding town hall meetings to explain the High Performance Plan (HPP) that was created in 2008 and used last year to help prepare our Olympic teams. These meetings also cover the ongoing process to revise that plan, what it could mean for current and future athletes and how it relates to our funding from the US Olympic Committee.
The US is changing its approach to high performance training and this is your chance to learn about that and give input. USCA COO Rick Patzke, 2010 Olympic coach Phill Drobnick and two Olympians will be at the meeting. Sharks Ice at San Jose, upstairs conference room, 5 pm, Wed July 28. (This is before the Vernon Davis charity curling event.) We'll try to hold some alternate sessions for folks who can't make it (and possibly some web/conference call options.) Questions? - or to let organizers know that you'd like to attend but can't make this session, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two San Jose leagues completed on June 22, 2010. The 10-week league had Team Okada (Takashi Okada, Andrew Lam, Laura Klein, Eric Prestemon) triumphing over Team Bollinger (Steve Bollinger, Boris Fedorov, Kelly Jeffery, Robert Garber).
The San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club celebrated another successful year of curling in California by hosting an open bonspiel over Memorial Day weekend, May 28-30, 2010. This Golden Anniversary Bonspiel was a huge success and was attended by 28 teams. Fourteen teams traveled from various clubs and locations across North America to join fourteen local teams in the fun and competition.
