ED RUETHER MEMORIAL FEB 24-26 2017
The Fairview Curling Club will be hosting the Memorial Spiel in late Feb wit…h a maximum of 24 teams. It is an Open Format – Men’s Ladies or Mixed. Entry Fee is $240. With banquet tickets included.
Ed was a member, volunteer and past President of our club. His carpentry skills can be seen throughout the club as reminders of his pride in the Fairview Curling Club.
Our club has been using curling rocks that came from the old club before the current one was built in 1972. It has come time to plan for the future to replace those curling rocks. The cost to replace rocks and handles and freight is approximately $50,000. We received two generous grants to help us in our plan. The Country of Clear Hills has donated $2500. and the M.D. of Fairview has donated $15,000. Most recently we have received notice from the Town of Fairview that they will donate $15,000 towards the purchase of our rocks. Proceeds from this bonspiel will help us with adding to our goal.
We continue to bring new members into our club. Our schools have free access to ice us during the day. This season we are seeing FHS and STM bringing in all classes grade 7 through grade 12. Junior Programs run three days a week for the entire season with 62 young curlers registered.
We will not be soliciting local business. However, should you wish to support our cause we will gratefully accept your donations. Your support is so appreciated. Whether it be cash donations, door prizes, silent auction items or other ideas you may have. In order to be acknowledged in our handout, we require that our committee is notified regarding donations by Feb. 18th. Donations will be accepted after this date and will do our best to acknowledge late arrivals.
Supper will be held at the Legion Hall on Saturday Feb 25th. Doors open at 5:00 PM. We encourage everyone to join in on the auctions, silent auction and raffle items. Banquet tickets will be available from Fairview Curling Club Lounge and Cheryl Biegel for $25.
