Upcoming events

Not much to write about this evening, as you might have been able to figure out by the late posting time. Sorry, but occasionally the well runs dry on the idea front. Today was spent doing some tidying around the house and watching football. Oh, and I'm starting to rewatch Battlestar Galactica with Cathy. So far she seems to be enjoying it, but I guess it remains to be seen if she can hang in there when the series starts to get a bit weird.

I will point out a couple of events for the week coming up, however.

First, for those of you in Iqaluit with an interest in curling, this week is a good one to come out to the curling club. We're flying up Dan Kleinschroth, a nationally recognized coach from Alberta, to do some clinics. Now, he's primarily in town to work on the Learn to Curl program for kids and to work with some of the junior curlers. However, on Wednesday night he'll be doing a clinic for beginner curlers and Thursday night a clinic for more advanced curlers who still want to fine tune their game. Both clinics take place from 7-9pm. There will also be a clinic on Saturday from 1-3pm for anyone who wants to attend, regardless of skill level. You don't have to be a member to come out.

There's also no charge for this. So if you're at all interested in curling and want to have one of the best coaches in Canada give you some pointers, please come to the club.

Secondly, I really encourage people in Iqaluit to pay close attention to Jordan and Stephanie's blog during this week. Jordan has taken it upon himself to get heavily involved in an "Iqaluit Helps Haiti" fundraiser, which is taking place this Saturday, January 30. It's going on at multiple venues around town and I imagine there will be no shortage of posters going up over the next few days.

Still, check over there for the latest updates. I imagine we'll be heading out on Saturday to catch some of the local acts and to support a good cause. And good on Jordan for getting involved in this. I always knew he was a class guy....this just carves it in stone.
