Yarmouth Curling Club UPDATE – October 31, 2017
Time to update you curlers with what is going on. Some of the facts and figures are only guesstimates and may change.
First we are happy to announce that Steven Boyce has accepted the President position for our club. Full list of positions can be seen on our web site. Second we appear to be having problems getting announcements and notices out. Always someone saying they never knew or heard. Please contact your team members or league members and spread the word. We realize not everyone is on Facebook or email.
Here’s the scoop. Our Compressor let go and we had to install a new one. Now, while starting up the system, a leak commenced out of our Chiller. More facts will come in the days to follow but we may be looking at another 4 to 6 weeks delay. We are looking at a possible combined estimated cost of 60 thousand dollars to get us going. At this time we ask for your patients and help fundraising while we wait. We have set up a fundraising committee and are in the mist of looking at all angels of loans, grants, ticket sales, etc. We have had a few curlers, municipalities, Yarmouth Golf and Country Club, and the Town express interest in helping us but we are a long way from being comfortable and need your assistance in fundraising, donating, participating or even supporting events. With this being said, please be patient with us, we may be able to extend our season to a month longer this year going to end of April. Please let other curlers know about the updates if you know they were some of the ones not getting the updated or announcements.
