YUK-YUKS IS RETURNING TO BRADFORD

Mark February 7th 2015 on your calendar.

That is the date the Bradford Curling Club will be bringing Yuk-Yuks back to the Portuguese Hall for a night of FUN.

If you remember last year you will not want to miss this year.

Tickets are now available at the club and Video Quest. There is a limited numbers of thickets so make sure you get yours, a Great Christmas Gift.

ROCKS MATCHED

Thanks to the leadership of Jane Hooper-Perroud, Pat Perroud and Ziggy Doberstien the rocks at the club were matched recently.
 
With several people spending up to 7 hours throwing rocks we were able to ensure that curlers are now throwing rocks which are very similar in speed and curl. The one thing which was found during this process is that the rocks are in good shape and really we should be okay for the next few years. 

At the same time the running surface of every rock was profiled and found to be very close to the acceptable 5.5 to 6 mm in width. 

Those throwing rocks were; Peggy Barrette, Michel Barrette (both from South Muskoka), Doug Thomson, Jordan Kemp, Russ Gale,Larry Bakewell and Gabe Perroud. Many thanks to these people along with Jane for doing all the leg work.

Thanks also to the OCA for the loan of the equipment necessary to carry out this procedure.

The handles have now been changed and the rocks textured, so all the work has been done and we are good to go.




We are pleased to announce the Bradford Curling Club has been chosen, in memory of the late Superintendent Mark Grant, to receive a defibrillator as part of the Canada's 911 Ride Foundation.
 
Superintendent Grant was a 32 year member of the York Regional Police force and a member of the Bradford Curling Club, as a curler on Frank Badowich's Monday CYOR team , who at the age of 54 died as a result of a motor vehicle accident
 
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation hosts an annual police escorted motorcycle ride to raise funds and awareness of the foundations causes. These include helping families of fallen emergency services workers, helping children who have been victims of violent crimes, as well as working in conjunction with the MIKEY Network to make defibrillators more readily available to save lives.
 
The Canada 911 Ride Foundation will also donate a plaque in memory of Superintendent Grant to be hung beside the defibrillator.
 
As part of the agreement the Bradford Curling Club will be required to have several club members undergo training on the proper usage of this defibrillator.
 
The Bradford Curling Club would like to thank both the Canada 911 Ride Foundation and the MIKEY Network for providing this valuable equipment to our club.

The Bradford Curling's recently held Volunteer Days were a huge success, many thanks to those who were able to make it out for the three nights of doing various tasks, which helped to prepare the club for the upcoming curling season.

Following are some of the jobs which were completed, by a group of about 18 volunteers, over the three night period:

  • Clean out and freshen up kitchen cupboards .
  • Clean up and paint trophy  case.
  • Hang advertising signs after painting of walls.
  • Install handles on rocks.
  • Re-install Curlers Welcome sign.
  • Vacuum and wipe down lockers.
  • Power wash extra brooms.
  • Paint new ramp steel.
  • Paint new trim boards.
  • Paint far end benches.
  • Clean upstairs windows.
  • Wash window curtains.

Again thanks to all those who had the time to help out.
