To the VCC members, coaches and volunteers,
Thank you for a great 2009-10 curling season. The only drawback, though, is that it is now officially over.
Members, coaches and volunteers: if it was not for your cooperation this season I would not have been able to do my job and, for that, I am quite grateful. There were probably many days during the season where the last thing you needed was to see me approaching you with my gleaming look but, members, you all were always accommodating.
Congratulations to Team Faa! For the second straight year, skip Chris Faa led his team to the title of Club Champions. Curling with his Thursday Open team in this year's event, Chris was joined by third Brad Blackwell, second Sean Ramsay and lead Steve Lewis as they captured the title in the A Final over Team Bos, also of the Thursday Open League.
In the B Final, Team Juniors (from the club's junior program) captured the B title with a spirited win over Team McGregor of the Pharmacists and Travelers League. Our B Champions, from the Junior Program, were a team of three made up of skip Harry Yau, third Maxim Langlais and and second Aaron Lao.

Now that the Olympic and Paralympic Games are over, we wanted to make sure that all club members are aware of a couple of items:
First, all club members who purchased an early-bird membership pass for Games-time access are able to receive a refund starting on Monday, March 28th. Refunds will be processed between 11am until 6pm each day, and anyone who purchased a pass is entitled to a refund less $1.00 - due to the pricing restructure.
Second, we want to make sure that all club members are that fund-raising for the Capital Development Fund continues through until the end of season.
We have our unique Team Canada Raffle where you can win a chance for a one hour curling lesson with a member from either Team Martin or Team Bernard (as well as many more fabulous prizes).
Please click here to learn more, and be sure to purchase your tickets from the bar or from the office for a chance to win and to support the club at the same time.
A message from VCC Club President, Jan Bos...
Today marks our first day back from the league hiatus, and we are looking forward to another month and a half of curling at the Vancouver Curling Club.
I wanted to take this opportunity to provide the membership with an update on: * the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, * our Team Canada Raffle, and * a difficult decision recently made by the board regarding the Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel.
