The Kaslo Curling Club thanks the following people and organizations for going the extra end:
Al Barclay – organized the September Swing and Sweep (aka Rock and Roll) golf and curling tournament on Sept 28-29 as a private event. Eight teams of 4 participated, including several players from Nelson and Castlegar, in a 9 hole golf scramble, three 6 six-end curling games and dinner. In addition to doing a fantastic job organizing and making the ice, Al subsequently donated the proceeds of $740 from the event to the curling club. The club bar also brought in $1425 that weekend.
Kaslo Men’s Night Golf – covered the significant cost of the golfing portion of the September Swing and Sweep, making the event a win-win for both the Kaslo Golf Club and the Kaslo Curling Club.
Carlos and Cathy Jordan – donated and installed a new door and panic hardware for the ice plant room, as required for fire safety.
