OK, so it’s been like 4 months since I updated this. Lots of things happening, and not all good. As most of you know, my health hasn’t been the best. I’ve been struggling with my knees to the point that I curled with a Stick for the first time….ever….at Tropicurl. Always good to curl in a bonspiel with something you’ve never used before!!

But outside of that, Tropicurl went great. We had some hiccups as we always do, so there is room for improvement. One thing that we were down on this year was volunteers to help with setup and ice preparation. I think we had TOO many people last year and this year everybody assumed, eh, they’ll be OK.

Well, guess what happens when you assume. That’s right….you’re wrong most of the time!! Never assume that we have enough help not only for Tropicurl but for anything we do in this Club.

This is a volunteer organization and everyone can use help with something. If someone turns you down for help, be it on the ice crew, warm room, etc., let me know and I’ll have a talk with them.

As we continue to progress toward our own facility, more and more people will have to step up and take on leadership roles in the Club.

Don’t be afraid to offer your time and talents. You might just find that someone needs them, and you can make new friends…for life!! We are CURLERS after all…

See you in September!
