More Curling Clubs Close
With the 2018-19 Curling season gearing up across the country, at least two long standing curling clubs are closing their doors permanently. Some clubs continue to lose members, while maintenance and operational costs continue to increase. One can not help but wonder which club will be next. The situation in Canada is in stark contrast to that in the United States, where new curling clubs are opening on a regular basis over the past few years. With the United States winning it's first Olympic Gold medal in history at the recent PyeongChang Winter Olympics, a curling frenzy has erupted across the nation and John Shuster's humble Olympic rink have seemingly been turned into rock stars. With curling club closures in Canada far exceeding the opening of new clubs, long standing clubs can no longer take their existence for granted.

Thanks Jenn Opitz for 11 years of volunteer service as Bar & Concession Manager!
In addition to 9 years as a volunteer bartender, Jennifer Opitz served as the Grande Cache Curling Club’s volunteer bar and concession manager for the past 11 years. Jennifer donated countless hours sourcing and transporting bar and concession supplies to the curling club, ensuring the club’s coolers and concession supplies were always stocked for league play and bonspiels. She routinely contributed 30+ hours over the course of a bonspiel weekend cooking and bartending. Jennifer also spent countless hours behind the scenes year round ensuring the club’s operations ran smoothly, and always operated according to the rules and regulations of the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission and Alberta Health Services. Jennifer stepped down as bar and concession manager in January of 2017 and will be missed. Thank you Jennifer for your 11 years of dedicated volunteer service to the Grande Cache Curling Club!
The new executive of the Grande Cache Curling Club has opted to make the bar manager a paid position for the upcoming 2017-18 season.
