Join the Bonspiel Planning Team!

We're going to be holding the 2nd Golden Gate Bonspiel on Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30, 2010. Here's a note from bonspiel organizer, Lyle Sieg:

Hello fellow SFBACC members. The time has come to get to work on the 2010 Spring Golden Gate Bonspiel.

We are planning on having this event on Memorial Day Weekend 2010 at Fremont. While we make the final negotiations for the ice we want to start the planning committee work so this is a call out to all our members that want to help to step up and sign up for the bonspiel committee. I have volunteered to lead our bonspiel organization but am looking forward to having help from many people to make this a first class and money making event. Please email me at lyle@bayareacurling.com to confirm your interest.

We usually meet once per month and then assign some follow up items with more frequent meetings and activity just prior to the event. There are lots of fun things to do and there is room for everyone to help out. The advantage now is we have a template for some of the work and we should be able to focus on improving things all the way around for participants and organizers alike. I would like to have our first gathering within two weeks so I look forward to hearing from you. To get things started, I’ve emailed directly the folks who served the committee planning in 2008. I would love to have you all back and yes, please bring some friends!
