Day Ladies Wrap Up - 2018-2019

Mayflower Day Ladies Wrap

By: Faith Piccolo

Mayflower Day Ladies had another banner year.  We picked up eleven new members, which brings our number up to 85. But there’s always room for more.

We had a social season filled with festive parties, luncheons, fun and games….and cake.

We started our season with the opening luncheon in September; then there was a Hallowe’en party at the end of October; we celebrated in December with a Christmas luncheon and sing-a-long led by Susan Crooks. We sat around our electronic TV fireplace and had a grand old time.

In March we celebrated St. Patrick, with the wearing of the green, pizza, Irish Coffee, and of course cake.

In between all the social events we found time to curl twice a week, and after our games we lounged in the Myers Room, enjoying coffee/tea, sweets and sometimes nutritional snacks, or whatever was on offer from whoever was on coffee duty. You might detect a theme in our calendar of events…just about every event includes food. Maybe that’s what’s bringing in all those new members.

We also took part in the Metro Bonspiel in November, along with teams from Halifax Curling Club and Dartmouth Curling Club.  We didn’t win the big prizes, but we did make a respectable showing.

Season Wrap - Mon/Wed Day Curling

ANOTHER CURLING SEASON ENDS FOR MAYFLOWER

MONDAY/WEDNESDAY MORNING LEAGUES

The last week of March marked the final days of curling for the Mayflower Monday and Wednesday morning league.  Feedback from the curlers suggest it was another great season and they all enjoy playing in these two daytime leagues - the competitiveness; the recreation and above all the social time spent with fellow curlers.

Kevin and Mike did a stellar job again this year arranging the Monday morning league.  The new format of mixing the competitive and recreational league games together seemed to work well and was generally well received by all the players.   The final games of the Monday spring season wrapped up with a fun day of curling.  Rick and Mike introduced us all to “Newfie” curling rules that certainly brought a different and fun challenge to the game of curling.  Amazingly all the games ended in a tie!!!

Hats off to Rick, Jim and Dave for their continued dedication to the organizing of the Wednesday morning league.  Rick’s suggestion to have the Skips pick their teams for the January to April games using a random draw method was a new approach that seemed to work well and provided a fairer means of selecting the teams.

The success of the morning leagues is due in large part to the number of volunteers who help with the various tasks.  In addition to organizing the Monday morning league, Mike and Kevin also took on the task of organizing the “Chistmas” and the “End of Season” banquets – a job well done.  A big Thank-you also goes out to all the other volunteers who assisted Luke on a regular basis to get the ice ready for play and others who served as bar tenders each morning. We have the new Club caterer - James (and all of his staff) to thank for the tasty food we enjoyed for lunch each Monday (and some Wednesdays).
