Accommodations:
The curling event will be held in Red Deer and the Baymont Inn and Convention Centre is a 2 minute walk to the Curling rink. The Hotel has offered a $99 per night room rate and this includes a morning buffet breakfast. Taxes are about $9. They have blocked off 60 rooms for our event. Should be fun having all the curlers at one site.

There will be transportation around the City and to any afternoon or evening events should you require these services. The Elks Club is located about 10 minutes from the downtown curling and accommodation sites.

The National Curling Championship Committee urges all Lodges across Canada to consider sending a team or individual curlers to this event. The committee will do its best to accommodate individual entries by placing them on a team. The goal of this event is to promote Elkdom, please seriously consider participating. Some funds are available from Grand Lodge to assist members travelling long distances to defray travel cost. These funds are being made available through the sale of the Sports Pins

If you have any questions feel free to contact Brother Hugh Lockhart at 403-506-5201 or greensideuplandscaping@gmail.com.

Respectfully,
Brother Hugh Lockhart
