> Strathcona Cup 2018  (posted Jan 21, 2016)

This is a men's curling competition between Canada and Scotland, held every 5 years and alternating between the two countries.
In January 2013 our club hosted Scottish curlers for 8 matches against DLCC teams as they traveled across the west to compete against Canadian teams. There was a lot of socializing and a good time was had by all.
The next round of the competition will take place in Scotland during January of 2018.
A team of 40 curlers representing all Canadian provinces will be selected between now and August, 2016. This will be the 11th "Team Canada" to cross the Atlantic and play in Scotland for the Strathcona Cup.
Besides being a reasonably fit and reasonably competent curler, selection criteria could include involvement at club and curling association level, community involvement and a variety of other skills/abilities that could be of assistance during the tour.
There are no "paying" sponsors for this tour. For the most part, participants bear their own costs.
If you are interested in being considered for the team please contact :

The sale of Super Bowl Pool lottery tickets is the 2nd of our fundraisers this curling season.  It is replacing the “Chase the Eight” lottery that was run throughout all of last season. President John McLachlan is the 2016 Super Bowl Pool Chairman. The Super Bowl 50 game is Sunday, February 7th in Santa Clara, CA. The participation of all leagues will be required to make the lottery a success.

Profits from this Super Bowl Lottery will be put towards the remaining 20% plus some expenses related to last year's ice plant upgrade.
Tickets are in the process of being distributed throughout the club.  If you have tickets already, then get out there and get it done. One team has already sold their pack of tickets.  It is not that hard to do. Please use the provided return envelope, or a new one available from the box just outside the Board Room door.
Remember to fill out your name and the amount returned.  It would also be gratefully appreciated that sold ticket stubs' scores are scratched and the writing is legible.

> 2015 Grey Cup Ticket  Sales   (posted Oct 15, 2015)

The 2015 Grey Cup game is scheduled for Sunday, November 29th here in Winnipeg.  The sale of  Grey Cup raffle tickets is now underway at Deer Lodge under Lottery Licence is LGA1070-RF.  This is one of our more prominent fundraisers and the participation of all curlers will be required to make it a success.  Past President Vic Palles is the 2015 Grey Cup Pool Chairman.
This year’s profits will be used to fund the installation of the new Reverse Osmosis Water System.  This is to improve our curling ice conditions for the benefit of all curlers. The expense is large and we are paying for it over a 3 year period.  If we sell out our pool tickets we can almost cover this year's payment.
If you have tickets already, then get out there and get it done.  It is not that hard to do.  It is all for the worthy cause of upgrading our club.  Please use the provided return envelope, or a new one from the box just outside the Board Room door.
Please remember to fill out your name and amount returned.  It would also be gratefully appreciated that sold ticket stubs' scores are scratched and the writing is legible.
You can drop your returns off with Vic, one of the other DLCC directors on your draw, at the Bar, at the Board Room, or through the mail slot in the door.
If you wish to sell additional tickets please contact :
Vic Palles, Grey Cup Pool Chairman,

> 2015 Golf Day & Registration BBQ (posted June 10, 2015)

Golf Day 2015 On Friday afternoon June 5th, we had 11 teams of golfers assembled for a shot gun start in the annual Deer Lodge Golf Day Texas Scramble at the Assiniboine Golf Club. The weather was great for a change, 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 the Foodfare at Mt Royal & Portage Ave.) was again available for everyone to grill their steaks. 
Following dinner the scores were tallied and organizer Doug Mackie announced the winners.  The group of  Mike Mahon, Ian Mahon, Blair Smith and Kevin Exell were judged as the team with the lowest net score.  
After all the completed curling application forms were processed there was a lengthy elimination draw to see who was the last man standing for the free membership for 2015-16.  Congratulations to Reg Sims who skips a team on Thursday night.
A large thank you goes to Doug Mackie for organizing the day... and to Jody & Paige at the bar.
Click on the photo above to view pictures taken on  the course and in the lounge.
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.
