Hello everyone. Here are your weekly news:
2-) Club Coach workshop : A Club Coach workshop is offered in French at the Rivière-du-Loup aréna next April 19-20. For more details and to registrer, click on this link.
3-) Fundraiser for curling in Quebec: The deadline for the program Placements Sports is March 31. This program established by the Gouvernement du Québec aims to grow the sport and offer better services by matching every donations made by individuals and businesses to their federation. The government will match all eligible donations 230%, so a $100 donation will bring in $330 to curling, enough to introduce three kids to curling! As this matching program will conclude at the end of the fiscal year and has not been renewed as of yet, we encourage the interested members to make a donation before the end of March to take advantage of this opportunity; it’s not every day that the government is willing to give us money! We also invite ambassadors to share this information with all the members of their club. Thank you! For more information: http://curling-quebec.qc.ca/

5-) WINTER 2017 – Curling 101 & Igloo : Curling 101 and Igloo, two of Curling Québec’s development programs, have been offered in several affiliated curling clubs since last year and the results were more than satisfying.

Many other clubs have already started to plan the implementation of Curling 101 and/or Igloo for fall 2017 and Curling Québec would like to share the invitation to others!

6-) Subsidy program for replacing R-12 and R-22 gaz systems : Government subsidy program for replacing or modifying R-12 and R-22 gaz refrigerating system in arenas and curling clubs. Curling Québec received a press release from Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport about a subsidy program that curling clubs could benefit from. We don’t know more yet than what you can read in the press release. But as that program will be back next spring, we wanted to let you know so when it will be effective, you will be prepared. As soon as we hear more, we’ll let you know. The press release received is in French only. Click here to see it.
