2017 Canadian Women’s STOH Pool

Hello, This year Joanne Pomalis and I have volunteered once again to run the pool for this year’s Canadian Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Some of the curling clubs are graciously helping out once again and will accept pool entries for a great cause.

We currently have Huntley CC involved, and assuming that Rideau and Ottawa clubs will be involved as well, but awaiting permission from them.

The entry fee for this year’s pool will again be $10, with half the entry fee proceeds to be donated to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation.

Last year, we all together made a donation of $400 (which included some prize winners donating their winnings, thanks).

In all the STOH pools over the years, we have all donated a total of $2265 to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. Continue reading “2017 Canadian Women’s STOH Pool”
