Busy Sunday Feb 13th at the BCC

Valentines Champagne Punch Brunch: A great turnout of some 110 BCC members and guests enjoyed a wonderful Valentines Brunch at the BCC Sunday February 13th from 11:00 AM to about 1:30 PM. Round of Beef; Rainbow Trout; Roasted Chicken; Ravioli; Sausage & Bacon; Vegetables; French Toast; Crepes; Omelette Station; Salad and Pastries along with beverages were some of the main features.
And of course the Chocolate Lovers Dessert Buffet was a huge draw to top off the scrumptious Brunch.

Golf Academy: While Brunch progressed in the Main Dining and Boardroom areas, members of the BCC Golf Academy were just below in the golf lounge hitting balls and taking a lesson from Derek. The Academy has been a great addition to the BCC giving our golfing members the opportunity to tune their game over the winter months.
Little Rocks Take to the Ice: Also Sunday morning, the Little Rocks program was in full swing on sheets 1 and 2 of our curling rink. Our budding stars! In addition to Jonathan, thanks goes to Cindy Dalgleish and Francis Lebrun for providing instruction.

Zone 2 PlayDowns: And if that was not enough, while all the above was going on, the BCC was hosting the Canada Gold Whisky Senior Mixed AND John Shay Insurance Mixed Zone 2 PlayDowns on sheets 3 to 6. Teams from Rideau, Prescott and Brockville participated with the top 2 from each divison advancing to the Regionals in Carlton Place. From there successful teams go to the Provincials the beginning of April. Congratulations to Matt Hone, Zone 2 OCA Representative and BCC member for orchestrating the event. Matt advises that next year, the BCC will actually be hosting the Provincials. Wow!

A busy Sunday Feb the 13th which demonstrates the many activities available to members; not just during the summer or winter, but all year round. Yes, membership in the BCC is a great value proposition!
