Update: thanks to the generosity of members the Royal Canadian Curling Club has so far raised over $28,000!
But in order to have the new rocks in place in January, the fundraising campaign has to reach its goal THIS MONTH.
If you haven’t donated and are interested, please see below!
Did you know the rocks at our club are over 50?
Unlike humans who have to keep going (unless your 6/49 numbers turn up), curling stones need to retire earlier, and it’s time for new rocks at the Royals.
But getting the special granite from Scotland carved up and shipped to Toronto costs money, and Royals needs our help.
Here’s a message from the Royal Canadian Curling Club Board:
The Royals rocks have put in 50 years of good curling, and its time for them to enjoy their retirement. We desperately need new rocks, and that means we need you. We need to act now, to get the new rocks in play at Royals for January 2017.
How to support the campaign:
- Pledge $500 and name a handle*
- Pledge $125 a team member and have your team name(s) on a handle*
- Pledge $96 when renewing your membership. If every curler at Royals (club and associate leagues) pledges $96 we would reach our target.
*Every handle purchased will be entered into a draw to win back one season’s club curling fees. Draw will take place at the AGM in September.
- To raise additional funds the Royals are selling advertising space in the arena. Consider helping by soliciting companies interested in purchasing space. Please contact Rob Ainsley firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. Our fundraising drive will be launched on Finals night. If you aren’t able to come and join the fun, but would like to support our campaign please fill out the Rock the Royals Pledge forms and return to Bill McAnally ‐ email@example.com
