Seasons Greetings from Your President!
It’s hard to believe that the first half of our curling season is nearly over. Not long ago we werechallenged with the extremely warm fall weather to keep humidity at bay on the ice level. And now, in lessthan 3 weeks, Christmas will be upon us!
If you are looking for ideas for Christmas shopping, don’t forget to visit the many businesses that havegenerously sponsored our sections at the club. To find those sponsors, look in your roster, our website or on the sponsor boards on the rink walls.
The Learn to Curl program is well underway. If you have a chance in the New Year, come by on a Sunday late afternoon and check it out. I guarantee you will find curlers having fun and see many brimming with enthusiasm for the game. I had the opportunity to mentor in the first week and then again in the fifth week. I cannot believe the progress that the group had made in a short period of time, and was amazed that a good number of the group participated in the Fall Klassic. Thank you to the many club members that have donated their time to mentor these curlers.
Upcoming events in January include the annual BCC Grandiose Gamble hosted by the Mixed Section (January 5-7) and of course, the Annual Hamilton and District Classic Bonspiel (January 8-14) Best of luck to all BCC teams entered in this spiel.
On behalf of the Board, I want to wish you and your family a safe and joyous holiday season. Happy NewYear!!

The Legends Bonspiel took place on the weekend with the Corey St Laurent team (above) coming out on top. Corey led the team which include Rod Yuzik at Vice, Cole Thorsen at Second and Steve Krysa at lead.
Each year the event recognizes one of our club’s Legends to honour their time at the club. This years”Legend” was Mike Brophy. Mike joined the club in 1975 and retired in 2009. Mike was a competitive curler and a very active in the club. He played in most sections over the years with only the Business Women’s section refusing his entry. Since 2009 Mike has been a regular spectator in the lounge and a welcome sight behind the glass.
Congrats to the organizers for a well run and fun event!
