The Parry Sound Curling Club presents
the 2nd Annual
2-4 Support Our Troops
March 5-6, 2016
The event kicks off with a Beer & Wing Night hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion on Friday, March 4 starting at 7 p.m. Curling starts bright and early Saturday morning and will end on Sunday afternoon with Closing Ceremonies and presentation of prizes at 2.15 p.m.
Last year we raised nearly $10,000 for the Military Families Fund and we hope to do even better this year. All proceeds and pledges will go to the Military Families Fund in support of our local veterans and active service personnel who require assistance.
We invite all veterans, past and present, as well as, OPP and EMS personnel, firefighters, Legion members and Air Cadets to join all of the participating curlers in the opening ceremonies. We will be assembling at 10:30 a.m., ready to be paraded onto the ice, led by a local piper, along with a colour party from CFB Borden at 11 a.m. Veterans are welcome and encouraged to wear their uniforms and medals. It is a time for us to show our respect and appreciation to those who serve, or have served, our country. To show them we care. Following the opening ceremonies lunch will be provided for all veterans at the curling club. The opening ceremonies are a very significant and important part of the event. It gives meaning to our 2-4 Bonspiel.
