First Meeting for Membership Development Committee
The Membership Development Committee had their first meeting at Ochil House on 4th October. The group, which represents a broad cross-section of the RCCC Membership, spent an enjoyable couple of hours discussing the future of curling in Scotland. A lively debate focused on how the group sees curling growing in the coming years and also how they can all work together closely to better understand the challenges facing curling, curlers and ice rinks across Scotland.
All committee members look forward to working together in the coming months to help support the development of curling throughout Scotland. They will be actively seeking broader views to help shape future meeting agenda’s and discussions, so please be prepared to share your thoughts and ideas if you get the opportunity.
- Influence future local and national curling development programmes that bring new players into the sport.
