MEMBERSHIP GENERAL MEETING
There will be two General Membership meetings this year. We ask that all members attend the first meeting on Thursday October 30th at 9:00pm.
NEW CURLERS’ CLINIC
The first part of this clinic deals with rules of curling, recommended exercises prior to playing; this takes place in the lounge area. The second part deals with rock delivery, sliding and sweeping and will take place on the ice surface. This clinic is free and comes highly recommended for new curlers. The membership will be notified via email, the PECC website and Facebook when this clinic will be held.
CLUB CURLERS’ CLINIC
Looking to improve your game? All club curlers with at least one year of curling experience are invited to attend a clinic. The membership will be notified via email when this clinic will be held which will likely be around the end of November or early December. Kate will be instructing this clinic and is a Level 2 Curling Instructor with Provincial, National and International coaching experience. Topic covered will include delivery, sweeping and one on one technical delivery analysis. If you would like more details feel free to contact Gary at 519-832-6354.
PLEASE NOTE: Clinics will run Sun Oct 22 as long as the ice is ready. Times will be posted in the club.
All entries for OCA events must be entered on-line at www.ontcurl.com . If you are registering for an event through the online registration system for the first time, you will need to set up an account. Creating an account is a one-time process. If you have trouble registering, there is step-by-step explanation attached to the database that will guide you through the process of setting up an account. The entry deadline for each competition is shown on the OCA website (www.ontcurl.com) as well as the OCA poster posted in the club. The deadline must be adhered to. It is up to each skip to enter their team using the on-line registration and pay the entry fee during the registration process. After the on-line registration is completed, the Club OCA Representative must confirm their eligibility electronically or via either email or fax. If you have any question or trouble regarding the new process for entering an OCA event, please contact Don Meyer, OCA Director 519 832-6298.
