Optimist International Curling U-18 Playdowns Event Schedule

Hello everyone. The Optimist International Juvenile Curling U-18 Playdowns
are almost here. The Event Schedule covers from Tuesday March 31st til
Monday April 6th. Below is a capsule view of what is happening and the
times. We do need our members, along with members from the other Optimist
Clubs to be on hand at different times to do different things. Please look
the schedule over and call Optimist Clint at 780-434-7133 and let him know
where you can fit in. As this is Easter Weekend as well as Spring Break for
the School kids, it could be tough for some of you to help out, but we ask
that you try. This event is 'Optimists in Action'.
