Hamilton and District Survey
All adult male members of the BCC will be receiving a survey from your Hamilton and District Committee this week. Please take the time to answer a few questions for the committee as they attempt to find out how to make the Hamilton and District Bonspiel more appealing to more players. The survey will be completely electronic so it is easy to fill out and it is completely anonymous.

When practice ice is available to the members, please follow these rules to be sure as many members as possible can use the ice in the time frame allotted.
1. If there are people waiting for a sheet to become available, please limit your time on the ice so that others can use it. A general rule of thumb is to throw for no more than 30 minutes.
2. If there are members who are waiting for a sheet and you do not have 4 players on your sheet, ask them to come and share the sheet with you.
Your cooperation is appreciated.

Contacting the Club Manager by Email

All members are welcome to email Brian at anytime. The best way to contact him is to compose a new email, and send it to [email protected]. He will then receive it as a separate item and respond as soon as he can. Thank you for your cooperation.
