The DLCC curling schedule for the 2014-15 season has been updated as a result of the recently announced closing of the Victoria Curling Club and subsequent adjustments Curl MB  had to make to their schedule of events.
Our club has volunteered to host the December 5-7, 2014 Winnipeg Senior Mens Regionals previously allocated to the Victoria CC.  In addition, the Junior Regionals (Men and Women) after experiencing very low registrations last year had not yet been scheduled to any club. They have now been added to run in parallel with the Senior Mens Regionals at our club on these dates.  
League play initially scheduled for that weekend has been adjusted.  Leagues impacted are Friday Mixed, Saturday Niners, Saturday Mixed, Anaf283, St. James Legion and Little Rocks & Bantams.  These leagues schould revist their schedules on our website.
As noted in the previous news posting, a month by month overview is available by clicking on ..... Monthly Calendar.  A snapshot of the entire season can also be viewed from a link near the bottom of  that web page.

> 2014 Golf Day & Registration BBQ (posted June 15, 2014)

Golf Day 2014 On Friday afetrnoon June 13th, over 50 golfers assembled for a shot gun start in the annual Deer Lodge Golf Day Texas Scramble at the Assiniboine Golf Club. The showers held off untill the very end of the round making it quite a nice day out on the course.
The Registration BBQ at the club kicked off after the golf. The big BBQ (courtesy of Muenther, the owner of the Foodfare at Mt Royal & Portage Ave.) was again available for everyone to grill their steaks. 
Following dinner the scores were tallied and organizer Tony Feheregyhazi handed out the prizes.  There was a tie for the low net team score for the day at 64 turned in by the John Alex, Tom Alix Tom Krahn & Mark Neuendorff group and the Cody Pearse, Brian Harrison, Chris Franklin & Sam Hart group. They both got the first place prizes.  Mike Mahon, Ian Mahon, Blair Smith and Kevin Exell were the the team with the second lowest net at 65.  The 3rd lowest team net score of 66 was the 2 man team of Jim Bender and Doug Bauer.  Tom Alix won the prize for the  longest drive of the day on hole number 3.  Closest to the pin honors went to Sam Hart for his shot on the par three 4th hole. 
After all the completed curling application forms were processed the names were put in a box and shuffled for the random selection for the free membership for 2014-15.  Congratulations to Wes Stevens  who skips a team on Tuesday nights.
A large thank you goes to Tony Feheregyhazi for organizing the day... and to Jody at the bar.

The club wishes to thank all those that came out to golf or attend the BBQ as the registration funds help keep paying the bills over the summer
