CurlManitoba introduces Open Your Doors with Facebook advertising.  This program is aimed at taking advantage of the hype and excitement that comes from watching curling at the Olympics.  We suggest your club run a free “Try Curling for a Day” clinic that gets people into your club to learn more about what you have to offer.  Once there, you can promote programs like “Learn to Curl”, where participants commit to a 4-6 week series of clinics.  Work with us to get more people into your clubs.

DECEMBER 28th

This is to provide notification to the Clubs of a recent CurlManitoba Board of Directors decision to increase the annual individual membership fee from $6 to $8 effective the 2019-2020 season.  As you are aware, a $4 membership fee was introduced in the 2011-2012 season.  The fee has only been increased once to $6 in 2015-2016.

The CurlManitoba Board is currently working on a new five-year strategic plan that will come into effect for the 2019-2020 season.  We are excited about increasing our efforts to grow participation in the game, providing more development opportunities for curlers of all skill levels, and enhancing communication and assistance to clubs to help them prosper.

With an ambitious new plan, the organization needs additional resources to achieve our goals over the next several years.  The fee increase will be used to directly support the new plan.

Even with the increase to $8 per curler, Manitoba remains one of the lowest membership fees across the country.  Several provinces have fees around the $15 level.

Thank you for your continued membership and hard work to provide an excellent curling experience for all members of our great game.

If you have any questions please contact Craig Baker, Executive Director of CurlManitoba.
