The kitchen will be offering a special menu on the evening of Tuesday December 16. Donna will be cooking wings that can be purchased as an individual serving, for a team or for a table! Come out and watch the Basswood players and enjoy some delicious Buffalo Style Wings! Everyone welcome.
Heads or Tails
In a previous Ice Advice it was suggested teams shake hands and flip for hammer in the lounge while you are waiting for your sheet to be prepared for play. To make the flip easier, there has been a Heads or Tails spinning wheel installed in the lounge on the pillar adjacent to sheet #3. Just spin it and see who wins!!
Thank you to Earl Brown for taking the time to make the spinning wheel!
Bob Biehler receives recognition from HACA.
BCC’s long time member, Bob Biehler was recognized for his 25+ years on the Hamilton and District Mixed Curling Classic Bonspiel Committee. On Saturday, November 29, the committee members presented him with a gift of a miniature curling stone in a beautiful hardwood box.
Bob is certainly a fabulous ambassador of our great game and we are very fortunate to have him as a friend and member of our club.
Congratulations Bob for a very well deserved recognition!!

Once again the Mens Evening Section will be selling calendars as we lead up to the gift-giving season to support various charities. The 2015 Spirit of Curling Calendar (http://www.curling.ca/2014/10/21/fundraising-calendar-benefits-for-the-love-of-curling/) proceeds go directly to the Canadian Curling Association’s For The Love of Curling philanthropic program, benefiting young curlers and curling centres across Canada – national funds raised will go to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation and the Canadian Spinal Cord Research Organization. And, with each calendar sold, $5 will go towards a (yet to be selected) local charity that the Men’s Section will donate to.
The calendars depict a variety of tasteful curling pictures and scenes the whole family can enjoy.
Calendars are available at the bar and make the perfect stocking stuffer for every member!!
