16 Teams again this year came to WCC to attend the Valentine Open February 10 – 12 2017.
We had the most outside teams this year we’ve ever had – teams from Iron Mountain, MI/Eau Claire/Waltham/Appleton/Kettle Moraine/Milwaukee/Cedar Rapids, IA/Minocqua/Chicago/Madison/Winona, MN and even a curler from California!!!!
A newcomer to the Valentine was SHAG, our band for Saturday night. Playing Classic Rock and Many Party Tunes, they kept the evening rolling and people dancing till the clock struck midnight!
A Tasty Breakfast, Piper to Begin the Final Draw and Great Curling to end a fun weekend.
AND THE WINNER IS…………THE DOBBS RINK playing for Milwaukee Curling Club!
A big THANK YOU to the people that made it happen.
Tiffany Reilly and Rebecca Nguyen, the masters of the kitchen, who made our curlers happy with great meal after great meal, we could not have kept them happy without your help and mad skills!
Bill Christensen and Fran Cook, our resident Saturday evening chefs, how can you go wrong with the wonderful Prime Rib dinner served to our guests, it was delectable!
The Ice Man Cometh – Joe Matel coordinated the ice for the weekend, no complaints heard on this important side of the spiel!
Then we had the Vigil-Uber – Mike Vigil is our resident Uber driver who assisted us ln getting everyone home safely after a night of White Russian Fountains/Open Bar/Incredible Meal!
Sarah Carlson for the guest Gift Bags – Everyone loved the goodies they got within their team bags!
All the WCC members who volunteered their time to help with the bar, food, ice or baking goodies, all your hard work is appreciated and we hope you enjoyed yourself a little. And for those that couldn’t join us but donated towards our raffle, it was very well received and we had eager teams wanting to buy tickets.
We sincerely appreciate everyone involved in the Valentine – Curlers, Volunteers and Entertainment, you make a successful bonspiel, THANK YOU AND PLEASE COME BACK NEXT YEAR!
