Parksville Curling Club

Annual General Meeting - Wednesday April 24th - 7:00 p.m.  
Volunteer Appreciation - 6-7 p.m.

... A NIGHT FOR THE VOLUNTEERS!  - We are celebrating our Volunteers this night!  Please come early and enjoy a FREE Volunteer Appreciation Meal and a Drink on the House!  We have an amazing Club with so many Volunteers that do their part in making us successful!  Lets Celebrate this year! 




What was our Goal?  We need $120,000 + for the new chiller.  We were able to save on the cost with not requiring a new compressor rebuild right now.  Thats good news.  And... we have calculated $105,000 that we have right now.  WE ARE ON TARGET!! 

We do not know who donated online with National Sports Trust Fund in March!  We won't get that information until April.  What we do know... We are really close to achieving what we need for now... Thats great news again!  We will keep you updated!
Congratulations to every Member who has contributed to the Big Chill Campaign and to those members that haven't had a chance, Zack will be available going forward to take your donation and to select your rock of choice!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.


We have exciting news about our Rocks!  We have secured a 6th set of Rocks with Royal City Curling Club!  These rocks have inserts which is the way of the times.  There will be no drastic change to the ice when you return in the fall.  Our ice was oversized and you will be pleasantly surprised to find we had the room with no major construction.
Eventually, we will want to trade all our rocks in for new rocks with inserts and sharp striking bands.  These rocks from Royal City will give us a sample of what's to come.  A big thank you to Brent Pierce and the Royal City Curling Club Manager and Board!  

Parksville Curling Club Approved for Funding through the National Sport Trust Fund (NSTF)

We are pleased to let everyone in our Oceanside community know that Parksville Curling Club has been approved for funding through the National Sport Trust Fund (NSTF) to help finance our new Chiller and related IcePlant upgrades as mandated by Technical Safety BC and Worksafe BC. Our Chiller will then be compliant and will not require further testing for 10years+. Our Club holds a reserve fund of $60,000 allotted for this project. We are looking for support from our Members and curling friends by way of a Tax Deductible donation towards the Chiller Campaign and specifically the Rock Handle Program.

What does this mean? From now until June 1st, 2019, members and friends of the Parksville Curling Club can make a charitable donation to the NSTF and have the funds earmarked to our project, in effect giving the Club temporary status as a charity. Any donations made through this program will qualify for official receipts for tax purposes.

The total cost for this project is $145,391. Our target for this NSTF is $80,000 +.
