Fall Klassic: Important Message
This message is for all members who signed up for the Fall Klassic. The Mixed Committee would like to find out a couple of things from the participants. We are trying to accommodate gluten free and vegetarian members. If you are either, please contact Mike O’Malley at: [email protected] so that the Committee will be able to obtain an accurate count of the meals required.
Don’t Trip Skips!
Often players prepare for their shot by taking equipment they will not need to shoot their rock to the other end in advance such as a broom ( they throw with a throwing device ) or gripper or even a pair of gloves. These items often are left on the boards in the middle of the walking area. Skips stand on the back boards and move laterally all of the time to watch shots as that are delivered by the opposing team. If these items are haphazardly placed on the back boards, SKIPS CAN TRIP as they are concentrating on the shot, not the items on the walkway. In addition, you may lose your $150 broom if it gets stepped on!
If you prepare for your shots in this fashion, put your equipment under the benches or otherwise in a safe place. Your Skip will appreciate it!
New BCC Club Stabilizers
The Club has purchased additional stabilizers that will be stored on the ice at both ends of each sheet of ice. All members are welcome to use them. They will be installed on hooks in the next few days.
If you use them, please remember to return the stabilizers to the appropriate storage place at the end of each game so that the next draw can easily find them.
Curling Strategy Clinic
Wendy Morgan will be hosting a Curling Strategy Clinic on November 3 at 7pm in the BCC meeting room. This is an off ice clinic that will cover the “strategy” aspect of curling. Any member can attend. The cost is $10.00 per person. To register please contact Brian at the club office. Space is limited.
There will also be a sign up sheet for anyone wishing to help with the Fall Klassic ( food preparation, food serving, running fun games, score keeping)

Contacting the Club Manager by Email
Periodically members will want to contact Brian and they click on “reply” to the Weekly BCC Update when they receive it. When your email is received, there is a chance it may get lost in the many vacation notices, bounce backs or notices of delayed emails received each week when the newsletter is sent out to 800+ addresses.
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.
