Meet our new
GNCC Board Member

Cathlene Uhl

Director - 5 Year and Under Events

Triangle Curling Club
Hello there.  My name is Cathy Uhl, and I am the newest GNCC board member and the new chairperson for the 5 and Under Bonspiels.  

My curling story began like most—I saw it in the Olympics and thought it looked pretty easy!

From the GNCC Treasurer

Peter J Lyons
Good news!  The GNCC will not have a dues increase this year.  Dues for fiscal year 2021-22 will return to the pre-pandemic rates of $15 for adults, $10 for members belonging to another club, $10 for social members, $4 for juniors, and $1 for youth under 12.  Julie Chanatry will send out dues notices in November for 2022.  Like insurance, our dues are based on a calendar year regardless of when clubs actually curl.
GNCC survived the pandemic in sound financial state and is well positioned going forward according to our accounting firm.  Despite not collecting dues, other than the Club Registration fee, the GNCC did not have to touch any of our Contingency funds to pay normal operating expenses.
We look forward to getting back on the ice as clubs begin reopening!

The USCA, GNCC, and CurlTech are teaming up to host a 
Junior Camp

September 17 - 19

We may be in the doldrums of summer but some of our clubs are able to beat the heat.  For example, Orlando (left) has summer leagues, Learn To Curls, and a bonspiel in August.  Woodstock (right) has ice in July because their arena is hosting hockey camps.

And it's exciting to see other clubs preparing to reopen in the fall - or the very late summer in the case of Petersham.  The GNCC calendar of events is growing longer every week.
