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.
Thank you to everyone who voted! The results are in and Jacket 1 in orange was the clear winner. (Jacket 4 was the runner-up.) Lyle and I will start working with embroiderers soon to get a sample made to be sure that the design and text will look ok. We certainly hope to use the design from Jacket 1, but, should the design not translate well to embroidery for some reason, we'll use the desing from Jacket 4.
Here's the winning look:

This is a fantastic opportunity for the curling clubs in the Western United States to get together and learn from the talented pool of experts in Club Management and Growth.
The first-ever curling event was held in Oakland yesterday. It was a corporate event with about 20 participants and 9 volunteers. (Thank you, volunteers!)
Details are still being worked out around league times in Oakland - but Wednesdays at 7:15 pm is one possible time. The cost will depend on the number of people in the league. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
