Summer Capital Projects
The summer work on the club is nearing completion.
The outer walls of the curling rink are being insulated. The insulation will allow our Ice Technician to better control the environment inside the rink, especially during the shoulder seasons when we have periods of warm weather. We all remember those warm days when we experienced frosty ice, sweating rocks, fog, condensation etc. This generally happened in September and early October when it was warm and humid outside. The new insulation will help reduce the possibility of these conditions occurring.
There has been a new chiller installed onto the ice cooling system. The old one was scheduled for replacement and with the assistance from an Ontario 150 Grant, the BCC was able to replace this key piece of equipment this summer. Thank you to Paul Feldkamp and Joe Taylor for all their work planning and completing this very important project.
Also, a new Glycol cooling system was installed on the compressor so the club will no longer have to spend money using city water to cool the compressor.
All three projects have been have been completed without the club having to finance them. They were paid for by existing funds, accumulated over time and saved to use for special large capital projects such as these.
New BCC Developmental League
Volunteers needed for Learn to Curl / Development League
The New Development League introduced in the BCC Newsletter in March has developed into a Learn to Curl / Development League. The premise remains the same and will be designed to keep members on the BCC waiting lists involved and engaged in the club while offering them the opportunity to learn to curl and/or improve their curling skills on selected Sunday afternoons during the curling season. In addition, where space is available, novice curlers and others seeking to improve their game skills are encouraged to participate.
Derek Vachon will coordinate this new program and he is seeking certified coaches, trainers, mentors and all others who would be willing to help these curlers with technique, etiquette, strategy and skill development. If you can help, please contact Brian at the office or Derek Vachon.
We are currently scheduled to have the ice ready for play and practice Sept 21. We will keep the membership informed as we progress with the ice installation process and confirm dates and times of ice availability through member emails.
