With Gratitude!

Sending many thanks to all our volunteers this year. The Grey Cup of Curling Cashspiel, Underfoot Flooring Woman’s Hot Shots, the 19th Annual Burn Treatment Funspiel, the annual sleigh ride and the Provincial Women’s Club Championship Bonspiel have all been successful thanks to the dedication of each event chairperson and their team of volunteers and supporters.

These wonderful volunteers allow us to put on special events that support our club financially and provide enjoyable experiences.

The work Andrew Polegato and his crew did to maintain the ice, in Peter’s absence is greatly appreciated. Our club is so fortunate to have such dedicated
and willing volunteers. Thanks to all!

Kudos to Peter Rushton and his crew who worked long hours to ensure great ice conditions for the 2020 NSCA Womens Curling Club Championship.
Thanks to all the members, former members and friends of the ACC who helped make this event a success. There is a thank-you note from Team C.
Thompson, the champs on the bulletin board next to the bar.

125Th Anniversary


Next year the Amherst Curling Club celebrates it’s 125th Anniversary. Special events are in the works. An added addition to the bar will be our own special brew by Trider’s called “Cold Draw.” It will be available on tap and in keepsake bottles.
