The summer will be a busy time for the newly elected Curl Moose Jaw executives as they begin planning and organizing themselves and their initiatives.
A proposal was brought forward by some of the local curlers at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre, which was brought to the board of directors in May and was approved.
“The five people that are making up the Curl Moose Jaw executive have just planned their first meeting date, as they were just elected last week,” stated Leslie Glova, program development manager at Mosaic Place. “It’s pretty new. They will be meeting over the summer months to get their plan in place in what Curl Moose Jaw is and will be about.”
The five-person executive includes Derek Dejeagher who is a Saskatchewan Curling Association (SCA) trained club coach and competition coach as well as a volunteer in various events; Travis Gansauge has served the past three years on the Saskatchewan Curling Players Association Board and had roles in other events; Joe Gunnis has spent many years curling and on management boards; Danielle Sicinski is an active volunteer in the curling community as well as a competitive curler; and Laurren Weisgerber plays in two curling night leagues and just participated in a three day SCA high performance camp and competed in the Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Tour.
“It’s fantastic. When you look at the names and their biographies, they all will compliment each other well,” said Glova. “They will all compliment each other so well with their different backgrounds with curling and other sports too. I think we have a really great group that will bring lots of good ideas forward and make things happen in the capacity we envision for Curl Moose Jaw.”
