Hello SFBACC curlers and friends,
As we wrap up 2009, it may have been a tough financial year for most of us. However, our club seems to continue to grow. When I joined the club before the 2006 Olympic surge we had at most 20 active curlers, today we have that many attend the monthly board meetings. Every season, we worry about having enough curlers to fill a league, and yet we have done this non-stop since January 2006. Absolutely unbelievable!
I want to thank all of you for the support that you have given to grow our club. I won't name names, because I'm sure to
Here are Gabrielle's personal notes from the all-club meeting on Tues, Dec 15. (These aren't official minutes.)
The U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship is in progress December 3-6, 2009 at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle. SFBACC's own Gabrielle Coleman and Barry Ivy participated, starting out with two victories but unfortunately ending up with two wins and three losses, out of the playoffs.
Follow the action at the Granite Curling Club's website.
Here's the video you've all been waiting for: Vernon Davis curling with the SFBACC!
And again, many thanks to Vernon Davis, the 49ers, AP videographer, Haven Daley, and everyone else who organized and participated in this!
**NEW TIME - Meeting at 7:30, party at 8:30, curling at 9:30***
We've got a big day on Tuesday, December 15 in San Jose - we'll have an all-club meeting starting at 7 pm, a party with Sharks Ice employees, and we'll teach the Sharks staff to curl from 9:30-11:30 pm. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend all of these events! For the meeting, we'll most likely be in the small conference room near the pool table in Stanley's.
Granite is still looking for help with the Mixed Doubles Nat'l Championships Dec 3-6. Totally new and inexperienced folks are welcome! Here's the email from head official, Joe Roberts:
In an effort to build community and communication in the region - a MoPac discussion group has been started. This is a place to go to get more information about our regional bonspiels and playdowns and to ask questions and stay informed about MoPac issues. Please join!
This is designed for Granite members, but they may be willing to take interested SFBACC members. Here's the GCC email:
On Sunday, November 15th we will be conducting a Level I and II officiating clinic to train new (and refresh current) officials on everything you need to know to officiate at a USCA curling event. This is also a great opportunity for new curlers to learn the ins-and-outs of the rules of curling.
