Congratulations to the new board of directors that was elected at the spring annual general meeting.

The board's first order of business will be to finalize contracts for ice making (Bruno) and for administration (previously held by MRB Finance).
Brown Appreciated for 30 Years of Service
Mark Brown was hired as the manager of the North Bay Granite Club in 1983. 30 years later he is resigning from a position he held off and on, and in many capacities throughout numerous successful years of curling at the Trout Lake facility.
Over the last couple of years Mark's company MRB Finance held a contract with the club for administration and accounting services. Mark staffed the office and oversaw the management of the club drawing on many year of experience.
Beyond a working relationship with the Granite Club, Mark has been an active volunteer throughout and a competitive curler representing North Bay in men's and senior men's provincial championships.
Mark is a two-time Scott Patterson Memorial trophy winner, once as a skip, and once playing with his son Jeff.
Mark was also the owner and operator of Granite Curling Supplies; an extremely valuable service to the club.
We know Mark will continue to be with us as a curler and volunteer in the future but nonetheless we have big shoes to fill.
Thanks to Mark for his dedication to curling. His contributions to this sport are appreciated by many.
