|The Vancouver Curling Club is thrilled to announce that an Eight-Ender was accomplished by Team Rose of the B&B League!
Team Rose recently scored an eight-ender in the first end of their game. The team is actually becoming adept at achieving this rare feat as they previously scored an eight-ender approximately 12 years ago at the VCC with the exact same foursome.
The next few months mark the final time that you can participate in events in our historic building, before we move to our new facility in the fall of 2011. There are a number of bonspiels as well as skill development opportunities that will be hosted at the club between January and April 2011. We look forward to having you join us.
To a joyful present and a well-remembered past. The Vancouver Curling Club Staff and Board of Directors wish all members of the VCC a safe and happy holiday season.
Best wishes to everyone for a happy holidays and an exciting New Year!
Reminder: the club will be closed from December 23, 2010 until January 1, 2011, and regular league play resumes on Sunday, January 2, 2011.
