Twin Rivers Curling Club has announced a new general manager for the 2021 curling season.
In a Facebook post the club announced that Kathy McNinch has been named to the post, effective July 12.
McNinch is well known for her work in a number of community organizations. For her it is a return to the curling club, as she had been manager of Twin Rivers when it first started with the opening of Northland Power Curling Centre.
The current GM Doug Flasch will transition to become their full-time head ice technician, after assuming a split role as GM and ice tech in the fall of 2020. The curling club states that Flasch will assist McNinch in the transition before taking some time off later this summer.
The plan is for curling to re-start in mid-October, following what was an early end to the 2020-21 season due to pandemic restrictions. The Northland Power Curling Centre facility will be open this summer, along with the Beaver Grill Restaurant on the second level. The curling club is taking bookings for events of upwards of 800 people as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
