As many of you know, York hosts a great school program on Thursday mornings. We have been giving local students the chance to try curling in conjunction with their physical education programs at school.
In order to host these groups we need volunteers to help with basic instruction. Our goal is to have one volunteer at each end of the ice. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN EXPERT!! We just cover the basics and get the kids into a game so they can see what fun our sport is and perhaps decide to take up the game.
Your help would be greatly appreciated and would allow York to continue a unique program we have offered for more than twenty years!
Our annual Boospiel is just around the corner - Saturday October 31, 2015! Members can register and pay online this year! $200.00 per team. JoAnn is hosting this year and has coaxed Jack into cooking dinner! There will be a band and dancing to finish off the day. Costumes are, of course, WELCOME!!
This is always a great event…please come out and join us for some Halloween fun!!!
The broom locker numbers have been assigned! The locker area is in the basement just past the ladies change room. I have posted a list of the names and their assigned numbers on a sheet just above the lockers.
If you ordered a name tag you will find them on the desk as you enter the basement area.
