ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL VILLAGE INN

The weekend of March 7- 9th saw another great weekend of curling and comraderie as 16 teams got together to take part in the umpteenth Annual Village Inn Men's bonspiel.

This is annual event which covers three days and sees curlers not only play our favorite sport but also take part in the famous 'Loonie Olympics', eat all week end and have the odd beverage.

When it was all over the team of Lynn Williamson, Paul Dubois, former long time Bradford curler Joe McNeil and once a year curler (actually twice this year) Ross Williamson take home the gold.

Other winners were:

Championship Side; 'B' event Team Jeff Laidlaw, 'C' event Team Rick Dafoe and 'D' event Team Dan Merkley, all Bradford club curlers.

On the Consolation side it was Team Mike Hardman taking 'A' event, Troy Winch won the 'B' event , Al Corbiel and his Bond Head golfing crew took 'C' and world famous fastball pitcher Todd Martin showed he is not a one sport man taking the 'D' event.

The complete bonspiel draw is here.

Once again a great job from Joe Moore and his men's committee, Ron Bolognini, Terry McCarthy, Bill Jermyn were there the whole weekend while many more helped out with the Olympics on Friday night and throughout the weekend.

The club is pleased to announce that the CYOR men have agreed to use the money raised from the bonspiel, along with other money they have, to have the striking bands of our rocks reconditioned for next year. This job has been long overdo and will help to preserve one of our major assets.



 

New Ice Scraper

Thanks to the efforts of Gary Lamb the Bradford Curling Club has taken delivery of it's new battery powered ice scraper.

The total cost of our refurbished scraper came in a lot less than the proposed price of about $ 6000. With 13 people presently committed to donate $200.00 to the club, through the CCA donation plan, we could pay the machine off this year with about 7 more people coming on board.

The 13 previously mentioned people committed to a two year program, but with the lower cost of the scraper and 7 additional people we would only need a one year $ 200.00 committment from everybody.

The pictured scraper is not exactly like ours but it gives members the idea of what we have now as versus what we were using. This machine in addition to being a newer machine will allow the ice crew to turn the ice over much faster than the old cord powered machine.

Now how can you help the club, it is quite easy go to our fundraiser page, click on the CCA donation program, which is a tax deductible program and follow the instructions.

CURLING STONES

We have some great news for next curling season, the CYOR Men's Division has agreed to use money they have raised, through the current  curling season, to have the striking band on our stones reconditioned.

Our curling stones are one of our greatest assets with a replacement cost in access of $ 40,000. To extend the 50 year life of a set of curling stones it is necessary to recondition the running surface and striking band. This will be the first time the striking bands have been done.

The strikeband is the key in determining the life of a curling stone. Granites curling stones will chip in half moon shapes throughout the middle of the strikeband. Once this type of chipping has begun these stones cannot be re-profiled as too much material needs to be removed to get below the chip affecting the weight and dimensions of the stones.

Thank you to the CYOR Division for making this possible.

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.
