Al Friesen welcomed those attending, and presented the following President’s Report……
PRESIDENT’S REPORT — Team registrations were overall up from the previous year….Bonspiel entries were also similar to 2010, with the mixed bonspiel generating the most revenue. The year end Compressor repair bill will climb to over 17 T dollars due to unexpected damage incurred at the end of the year. Rocks are also expected to arrive in time for the curling season. These were funded in part by the Scotties Legacy fund, Manitoba Curling Development Fund, Altona Community Foundation, and 6400 dollars donated by curlers, business and friends of curling. Executive carried through on better communication with members and aim to continue that in 2011..Curl Manitoba is requiring more detailed registration information in keeping with directives from Sport Manitoba, and the CCA.. Lots of excitement in the year ahead with a Mixed League, Junior League, and Funspiel planned
A huge thanks to all of you, who helped at curling bonspiels, ice painting, 200 club ticket sales, kitchen duty, junior curling instruction, and the monthly fish fries….Your contribution was key in ensuring the financial viability of this facility……
A special thanks to outgoing executive members Ang Apperley, and Jenn Derksen…..whose commitment and dependability were a huge asset to our executive team…….Jenn has indicated that she would be available to assist with our posters, and Ang is taking registration here tonight, so thanks for continuing to allow our club the benefit of your skills….
