The Ladies Centennial year started off with a bang on December 2 with a Gala Dinner attended by more than 60 women, members past and present. Cathy Hughes (Curling Canada Governor and Liaison to Curling Quebec) presented plaques from Curling Canada and Curling Quebec, in recognition of the Day Ladies Branch of MWCC and their contribution to the sport of curling during this last 100 years.
This year’s festive classic on December 18th attracted 62 enthusiastic curlers from all parts of our club’s day, evening and instructional leagues. Many curlers sported colourful holiday sweaters and seasonal headgear (i.e David’s Yoda Santa, Russ’s leprachaun & Doug’s elf)
In what has turned out to be an unusual low turnout at the Grand Match & Grand Dame tournament, our 5 MWCC teams performed well posting a 3-0-2 record. Congratulations to our 2 women’s teams who swept to a 1-0-1 record and finished in 2nd place out of 15 teams !
