Newsletter of the Port Elgin Curling Club
As members now know, the Port Elgin Curling Club, in conjunction with CurlOn, will be hosting the 2022 Ontario Men’s Curling Championship also referred to as THE TANKARD, February 9 – 13, 2022 at the Plex.
The Steering Committee for the event is lead by Doug Flowers with members Earl Anderson, Kate Hagen and Brian Crabbe. This committee “steers” seven different committees, each with specific responsibilities that are being co-ordinated and developed so everything is organized and we can be the best hosts possible. The goal is to make this Tankard an unforgettable event for the curlers and the spectators while we build the image of curling in our community and provide a significant economic stimulus to the town of Port Elgin and surrounding area.
Our members will be amazed to learn of the interest that has already been generated. Just the day after town council ok’d the event and the use of the Plex, we received phone calls from curlers in other clubs and towns who want to lend us a hand. We have even had requests for tickets!
The success of the Tankard in Port Elgin depends on volunteers and we need lots of them. We are issuing the “call” for volunteers with this newsletter. We require volunteers for many tasks and in many areas. You can take your pick. Please, keep in mind that we need you!
Attached you will find a letter from the co-chairs of the Volunteer Committee, Sue Little and Deb Campbell. This letter will give you important information about how to become a volunteer. Sue and Deb are looking forward to hearing from you.
Over the next few weeks there will be lots of news rolling out to keep you informed. The Hog Line will update you with TANKARD NEWS.
