Stacey MacNeil - At-Large Board Candidate 2009
Originally from Nova Scotia, my curling interest started quite a few years ago while living in New Brunswick, Canada. A friend of mine convinced me to go to an open house to try something different. At the time I thought â€“ youâ€™re kidding right? Growing up I had been exposed to just about every sport â€“ except curling. Ice was for skating -- in fact, it was all about hockey. I thought â€¦ curling? Why would anyone want to do that?
But, eventually I gave in and agreed to attend the clinic â€“ and even though I couldnâ€™t stand on the ice and fell down quite a few timesâ€¦I kept going and was soon hooked. I love curling. Love the game, love the fun, love talking about it, love it when you make â€œthe shotâ€. (That happens once in awhile!) When I moved to California, I never expected to curl again until a colleague told me there was a league out here. I seriously doubted she knew what she was talking about until she sent me the link. If it wasnâ€™t for Elaine, I would never have known.
I really didnâ€™t know what to expect when I first showed up in Fremont. I thought â€¦ how exactly is this going to work in a hockey rink? But it doesâ€¦ Thanks in large part to the many dedicated volunteers who also share a passion for curling and a desire to help others learn and enjoy the game.
My interest in the board is simple. Iâ€™d like to contribute to support the club, help foster curling to have greater exposure in the community, grow the club membership and assist in making each club membersâ€™ experience a more enjoyable one. After all, you havenâ€™t really lived until youâ€™ve been chased off the ice by a zamboni!
