Hello Curlers
 
While it is only early in September, a lot of things have been going on.  If you are a member at Victoria Curling Club, you may know they have been experiencing some mechanical issues which has caused a delay in getting their ice in.  As a result, a couple of events have been moved to the Archie Browning Sport Centre.
 
So first up, the curling events at the BC 55+ games are now taking place (Sep 13-17) at Esquimalt.  Al Sutherland and his crew are already busy getting the ice installed.  The following weekend (Sep 23-25), Esquimalt will be hosting a World Curling Tour Mixed Doubles Cashspiel.   
 
In addition, a competitive Japanese Men's team (part of the Japanese National program) is looking for some twice daily practice ice from Sep 19 – 27.  Although a few leagues are making use of the early ice, it looks like we can accommodate the Japanese with a few minor changes.
 
Finally, please don’t forget about our annual Open House on Sunday, Sep 25 from 1-4 pm. (after the finish of the cashspiel). 
 
Dust off your curling gear, come down and throw a few rocks and meet other members of the Club (and maybe the Japanese team).  Members of the Doubles League will be available to assist anyone looking to try doubles curling. 
 
We have postponed the Learn to Curl clinic to later in the season so that it might be Integrated with other Esquimalt programs – meaning there will be lots of practice ice for the Open House.

It is with substantial sadness to inform you all that we have lost one of the great members of Curling in Victoria.  Stew Thomson passed away peacefully on August 4, 2022.  Stew was an amazing person and lived a remarkable life. We feel so lucky that we got to know him and that he was a part of Curling in Esquimalt.

Website Administration Enhancements
The website has been updated to provide User Guides to all of the features offered through the Administration screens. These are divided up between "League" and "Event" User Guides and are filled with features that you may not have been aware of.

We have also added 2 new features so that you can find pre-existing draw schedules for Bonspiels or for your League. This should make it easier for draw masters to find schedules that have been proven to work in the past and helps streamline the process to get your schedule posted to the website.

If you have Administration access, please read the User Guides and find out how much you can do to enhance our online presence. User Guides are found at the bottom left of the Administration page under Helpful Information.
