1st Annual MOVEMBER at the BCC

Around the world, men have been growing moustaches throughout November in a month-long charity event that raises funds and awareness for men's health issues. These generous fellows, known as "Mo Bros", groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. At the end of the month, participants and their female supporters (known as "Mo Sistas") celebrate their gallantry by throwing their own "Movember" party. In the BCC's case, these fine Mo Bros above, organized a "Mo Spiel" at the BCC held this past Saturday evening. If you had been there, you could have tried your hand at a "Short Game", or tried drawing to the button from corner-to-corner. BCC's Movember MoSpiel was a fun event and the 1st Annual. Next year we are sure it will be bigger and better. Monies raised go to Prostate Cancer Canada.

New Curling Members Welcomed

Friday evening mixed curling has welcomed some 35 new curlers to the Brockville Country Club. To show our appreciated the BCC Membership Committee hosted Friday night with some "sampler" bubblies (thanks Beaus) and snacks (thanks BCC). Rodger Rhodes (at podium) welcomed the new curlers and covered a few of the curling subtleties. Jack Kenny brought greetings from the Board. The two draws had a fun evening and we trust all our new curlers are having a great time. We also trust our existing members are working with the new curlers to ensure they are being well integrated. Many of the new curlers are pay-as-play members, and we would love to see them all migrate to full-time BCC curling members.

BCC Rinks Shine at "Limestone"

Two of our BCC rinks travelled to Kingston this past weekend to compete in the Limestone Invitational Bonspiel for Seniors at the Royal Kingston Curling Club. Both our rinks won their games! Wow! When tallying up the scores our rink of Al Kennedy, Bill Kyle, Warner Bischof and Grant Marshall (shown in picture) placed 2nd overall. Right on their heels, placing 3rd overall was our BCC rink of Ron Edgeley, Charlie Brady, Steve Gill and Don Presley. Congratulation guys for a job well done! This weekend is the "Mens Senior Invitational Bonspiel" at the BCC where eight (8) of our rinks will take on other teams from Eastern Ontario. Good luck to all our BCC rinks as they represent our club and host our neighbours.
