Now that our curling season is coming to an end, we would like to draw you attention to upcoming events:
ALL TEAMS ARE GUARANTEED A MINIMUM OF ONE PLAY-OFF GAME.
The play-off games will be played on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday…….so your play-off games may not be on your normal curling night.
The Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday groups finish their last regular games of the season this week. Monday group finishes up regular season on March 4th
The full play-off schedule cannot be made until the Monday group completes their last regular season game.
So putting the complete play-off schedule for the Club Championship, Bill Clement Memorial Event and the Beer Event will be on a very tight timeframe.
SO PLEASE KEEP WATCH YOUR EMAIL….. TO KNOW WHAT DAY YOUR TEAM WILL BE PLAYING ON.
GROUP ROUND PLAY-OFFS:
The round 2 and 3 winners will play off for the Group Night Championships. Any tiebreakers will also be played next week.
The Tuesday group finishes regular season play tonight. So I will schedule the Group winner play-off games for Tuesday March 5th.
The Wednesday Group finishes regular season play tomorrow night. So their Group Winner Play-off games will begin Tuesday, March 5th / March 6th
The Thursday Group and the Monday Group will begin their Group winner play-off games beginning Wednesday, March 6th
CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS: I anticipate having theschedules for these events completed Tuesday, March 6th. So again please keep close eye on your email.
Play-off games for these events will start Wednesday/ March 6th / Thursday March 7th. And will continue every Monday – Thursday though to March 28th.
All play-off gams are 8 ends. There will be no bell for these playoff games, however, that is not an excuse for slow play.
- Club Championship – the top 12 teams based on total season points – two teams from Monday and Wednesday and four teams from Tuesday and Thursday will play a double knockout page playoff.
- Bill Clement Memorial Event – the next 32 teams based on total season points will participate in a single knockout spiel.
- Beer Event – the bottom 16 teams in total season points will participate in a single knockout spiel.
March 28 – MEN’S LEAGUE WIND UP – This is free for all men’s league curlers.
- Finals of all three Charleswood playoff games will be played, starting at 5:30
- This will be followed by the Men’s Banquet and Annual Meeting. The cost of the banquet was included in your registration fees.
- A deposit of $340 is required to be paid at the wind up to hold your spot for next year.
2019/2020 Curling Season Dues
- The Charleswood Men’s Club currently has a surplus of funds of approximately $8k. Please think about any improvements that would be worthy of an investment. One suggestion has been improvements to the Men’s Locker Room.
- We propose to maintain the current fees for the 2019/20 curling season.
March 14 – 17 – Manitoba Provincial Curling Club Championships
- Volunteers are required for this event
- Come and watch the Justin Reischek rink represent our curling club at this event.
2020 Viterra Manitoba Men’s Provincial Curling Championship
- As you know, Charleswood C.C. will be hosting the 2020 men’s provincial championships at Eric Coy Arena in February 2020
- A curling event of this size has the potential to raise a large amount of revenue for the Charleswood Curling Club. In 2017 our Club hosted the Scotties which brought in $83,000 in revenue to our club. This paid for replacement of our ice plant and a large number of improvements to our Curling Club. This profit was a direct result of the tremendous support of the volunteers.
- The 2020 Viterra Men’s Provincial Championship has the potential to bring in another large amount of revenue to our curling club. But it will require volunteers to make this event both a success and profitable. So we strongly need your help.
- There are volunteer opportunities for many positions and encourage your participation.
- We urgently require individuals to take the lead role for the Facilities and Treasurer groups. We have many volunteers who will volunteer for these groups so, the main responsibilities for the lead will be to coordinate the efforts of the volunteers and to attend meetings of the Viterra committee.
