Help Out the Club and Earn Your Refund

A reminder, for the teams that curl at 9pm during winter league, we need 4-6 folks to show up at 8pm to help prepare the ice etc. The hour from 8 to 9 goes toward your league service, and you can document that in the blue binder hanging in the equipment shed door. Please mark down time served, and have a board member initial it, and when you accumulate 4 hours send a note to Duncan Lutes for your $25.00 rebate. dclutes@gmail.com

MCC Merchandise We still have hats, tee-shirts, sweatshirts, vests, and gloves for sale at bargain prices. During league nights these items will be available for purchase throughout the season.

The annual MCC meeting will be coming up soon with election of board members with a probable time in February. Will keep you posted on that event. If you are interested in serving on the Board in the future, please contact us.

For more information, please contact us at missoulacurling@gmail.com.

See you all on the ice soon!

Best regards and good curling!!
