For the second time in the past few years, the AMCC was chosen to host the Provincial Stick Curling Champions comprised of 40, 2 person teams of all ages, gender, abilities and disabilities. Following 3 days of very intense competition, socializing and genuine comradery the Ernie Oliver/Chris Sobkowicz team emerged as Provincial Champions and will be travelling to St Albert, Alberta to participate in the National Sticks Championship. Unique to Stick Curling, and in the interests of increasing participation levels, the Nationals is an open competition with the Manitoba Provincial Champions benefitting from some travel money compliments of the Manitoba Stick Curling Association. In addition to their excellence on the pebbled surface Chris and Ernie were the key organizers for this year's event and are instrumental in the continuing growth of this great activity. Of note, AMCC's very own Leroy Clarke and Bruce Leckie competed in the Consolation Event Final.
Once again the combined efforts of Matt and his hardworking ice crew, Kim and the family affair as well as Cindy and her friendly bar staff firmly established the AMCC as the perfect venue for hosting curling events of all sizes and requirements.
A MOST UPLIFTING EXPERIENCE
Paralympian and AMCC member Dennis Thiessen arrives at the second floor following a smooth ride on the recently commissioned public lift. Dennis, and fellow wheelchair curlers Mark and Jamie, thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to socialize with other club members in the upper lounge stating how pleased they are that their Club is leading the way in providing full access to persons with disabilities and mobility issues. Dennis and the Team Canada Paralympians will be departing for Sochi in late February. A Send Off Social, recognizing Dennis' outstanding achievement, will be held in the Club rooms at 7PM, Fri, 21 Feb 2014. Tickets can be purchased at the Bar.

The first half of the curling season wrapped up on a very busy note the weekend of 20-22 Dec when the AMCC hosted the Manitoba Men's and Women's U18 competition along with the Mixed Doubles Trials. Following 3 days of very good competition, scheduled so as not to conflict with regular club curling, the Kurz/Fallis team earned the right to compete in the National Mixed Doubles (Ottawa) while our very own JT Ryan and Christine Mackay teams qualified for the Manitoba Winter Games (Winkler/Morden).
JT, Hugh McFarlane, Brad Van Achte, Gordon McFarlane and coach John Lund will be very busy as they had already earned a berth in the Junior Provincials taking place in Portage La Prairie at the end of December. Joining the guys in Portage will be the Rachel Burtnyk team as they compete in their second straight Provincial Junior Championships as well as the Grenkow team also representing the AMCC. The future of our great facility is in good hands thanks in large part to the great curling, sportsmanship and potential displayed by these very well coached athletes.
The AMCC will be very well represented at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts being held in Virden 8-12 Jan 2014. Previous Provincial Champions Barb Spencer and Janet Harvey will be skipping squads which have competed very well to this point in the season. In addition Michelle Montford will be returning with a team which performed very well at last year's Championship.
The Host Committee is pleased to note that our very own Wayne Johnson team has earned the right to compete in the Provincial Masters Championships at the AMCC 27 Feb - 03 Mar 2014. Further details will be provided with a reminder that the event still requires a fair number of volunteers.
Continuously updated results for all Provincial Championships can be found on the Curl Manitoba website; along with information regarding the impending deadline for the Manitoba Open (aka MCA) spiel, Club benefits related to the purchase of Speciality Licence plates and weekly admission pass to the Safeway Championship.
Looking forward to a busy, rewarding second half of the 2013/14 curling season featuring the completion of the accessibility project.

$1.22 per Game - Christmas Deal on Safeway Championship Tickets
Ticket Sales for the Safeway Championship (January 29-February 2 at MTS ICEPLEX) were launched during the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings and visitors to the CurlManitoba display at the Trials were positive about ‘the deal’.
When you attend the event to watch Manitoba’s best men’s teams, you’ll pay $30 per day at the door. With an advance purchase of a full event ticket, you can save $40 and give a Christmas gift to you curling club as well.
The pre-Christmas price of $110 includes an automatic $15 direct rebate to your affiliated curling club. After Christmas (until the day before the championship), the price will go up to $125. The $15 club rebate will be included in that price as well.
By the way – the first ticket purchasers were Ken and Shirley Strand and their $15 club rebates benefitted the Pembina Curling Club.
INTERESTED in an advance purchase – contact your club manager (or designated volunteer) or contact CurlManitoba – 204-925-5723,
If you want to know how good a deal Safeway Championship tickets are ………with five sheets of ice and four draws a day in the preliminary round – $30 a day is a price of $1.50 per game - less than your morning cup of coffee.
And you can reduce that to $1.22 per game with the pre-Christmas full event pass priced at $110.
