October 26, 2016 6:00pm Quesnel Curling Centre
The Quesnel Curling Centre is a non-profit organization which is run by a volunteer Board of Directors. We encourage members to attend the AGM as members are the backbone of our Centre. We need members to get involved in order that we continue to be a strong organization. There will be an election of officers, discussion on dues for the 2017 season and other important topics. This year we have a challenge of having the new arena being built on our front doorstep. We need input and new ideas from our members. The best way for us to grow and continue to prosper is through our members stepping up to volunteer. WE NEED YOU.
Parking options during the 2016/17 season
The area in orange/yellow is the construction zone. The Curling Centre is to the right of the yellow star. The purple areas are City parking lots which are available to the Centre for parking during the 2016/17 season. We are encouraging people to use the parking area along GRAY Street as most users of the Twin Ice Arena's will probably not choose this area.
If you find that the Gray Avenue parking lot is full every time you come to the Centre to curl, we encourage you to contact the City and request that an additional 18 spaces be made available on Gray Avenue by turning it into a one way road. The City phone number is 250-992-2111. Make sure you phone as this is the only way you will be heard. Ask that your request be forwarded to the Mayor.
