Another curling season is overwith at the Capital Winter Curling Club and on behalf of the Staff & Management, we hope you have had a great year and we look forward to having you back with us in October. We encourage all members to join us on Monday, April 24th @ 7:00pm at the Club for our Annual Spring Meeting and then on Friday, April 28th @ 7:00pm for our Closing Banquet.
It has been an exciting year at CWC with the hosting of the Everest Canadian Seniors Curling Championships and during the week of April 15th - 22nd we look forward to hosting the Canadian Police Curling Association National Championships so drop by the club to watch some of this great event. Curling will be back in Fredericton before you know it with the recent announcement of the Everest Curling Challenge to take place from August 25th - 27th at Willie O'Ree Place featuring (32) of the top curlers in the World competing for huge prizes.....You will not want to miss this!! Of course, the arrival of our new rocks in March was another highlight of the season and we can now look forward to many, many more years of curling at CWC.
We had some great highlights this season on the ice with many of our teams and individuals competing for National titles. At the Canadian Juniors, it was the Ladies team of Samantha Crook Julia Hunter, Danielle Hubbard and Kayla Russell representing CWC and also Carter Small throwing 3rd rocks for the TSA Mens team skipped by Liam Marin. We all looked forward to watch our Scotties Provincial Champions made up of Skip Melissa Adams, Third Jennifer Armstrong, Second Cathlia Ward and Lead Jillian Keough compete for a National Title but unfortunately a tough 5 -3 loss to Northwest Territories in the finals of the Pre-Qualification didn't allow for that to happen. Curling out of CWC, Jamie Brannen threw lead rocks for the New Brunswick Mens team at the Brier skipped by Mike Kennedy and then how can we forget our amazing Ladies Team of Kathy Hicks, Alexa Washburn, Brenda Stirling and Eleanor Murray who did our Province and our Club very proud at the Everest Canadian Seniors.
In addition, the team of Justine Comeau, Cathlia Ward, Jamie Ward and Jillian Crandall represented our Club and the University of New Brunswick at the Women's University Curling Championships and beginning on April 18th, the Ladies team of Justine Comeau, Emma LeBlanc, Brigitte Comeau and Keira McLaughlin will represent CWC at the National Under 18 Championships in Moncton. Also at the Under 18 Championships on the Mens Team is Third Adam Tracey curling for Skip Liam Marin out of TSA.
We have a lot of curlers to be very proud of at CWC.
Have a great summer and once again, we look forward to seeing everyone at the Annual Meeting on April 24th, the Closing Dinner on April 28th, at the Everest Curling Challenge in August and of course back with us in October for what promises to be another great curling season at CWC.
