In Memoriam

Peter Mitchell

GNCC President 
1991 - 1993
For the second time is a few months, the GNCC has lost a former President.  Peter Mitchell was GNCC President from 1991 to 1993.  Peter was a founding member of the Plainfield Curling Club in 1963 and was very active with their junior program.  He founded the Garden State Curling Club in 1978 and served as its president until the club dissolved in 2015.  Peter and his wife, Olga, joined the Cape Cod Curling Club when they moved from New Jersey to the Cape.
It's that time again - time to debate what was the best shot of the year.
But of course we already know what will be the best shot of 2021.

If you need something to do while you're waiting for your Covid vaccination there are training sessions and seminars that you can take advantage of.  
The Potomac Curling Club is hosting one on January 24th.

Or you can listen to curling podcasts. The Curling News just started Rock Logic, a podcast on curling analytics.

If numbers aren't your thing then try one of these.
And if you're still bored you can always watch funny curling videos on YouTube.
The parody is remarkable similar to the original Tim Hortons commercial.
This parody might be even better than the original.
