Members Services of USA Curling and Mountain Pacific Curling Association are pleased to announce a â€œMini-Conferenceâ€ and Skills Clinic for the membership of MOPAC.
Date: October 10 and 11, 2009
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.
Note date change to Sat, Oct 10 and Sun, Oct 11
Hello Bay Area Curlers,
MoPac will be hosting a USCA mini-conference and skills camp in Vacaville on October 10th & 11th. Many head office staff will be here. The USCA says we need a minimum of 20 people to make this successful. I'm thinking that our club can do that by itself, let's show the USCA why MoPac is the fastest growing region in the country.
Can't get enough curling? The SFBACC is all over the web, including MySpace, Facebook and now Twitter.
The Granite Curling Club in Seattle, which hosts the MoPac Club and Mixed playdowns, has posted playdown dates on their web site. On rare occasions, these dates change, but for now they are:
MoPac Club Nationals Playdown: Sat, January 16 - Sun, January 17
MoPac Mixed Nationas Playdown: Sat, January 30 - Sun, January 31
I've got a few photos from last week's Fremont league posted here. There are a few more still to come!
