Where are they now? Past Kraft Celebration Tour winners.
Bathurst Curling Club
Bathurst has used the $25,000 award to fix the ice plant and to install a brand new lighting system. The money has helped with smaller upgrades as well, from putting in new ceiling tiles to giving the club a fresh coat of paint.
Chase Place Arena
The $25,000 has been put towards replacing the flooring in the arena as it shares an entrance with the curling club and had started breaking off in chunks. The money also went into installing new paneling in the arena.
Club de Curling Chicoutimi
The $25,000 award helped Chicoutimi put in a new roof so that the ice conditions always remain optimal. This improvement along with other touch-ups, are aimed at ushering in a new generation of curlers.
Pugwash Sport Ball Field
The community has put the money towards making some much needed restorations to the Pugwash Sport Ball Field including constructing a new backstop and fence around the field as well as making improvements to the infield to make it safer.
Cochrane put the $25,000 towards upgrading Mitford park to a year round facility, creating a soccer pitch, installing pond lighting and portable rink dividers and resurfacing pathways for the Footstock Running Festival.
Elizabeth Swan Memorial Park
With the park acting as a centre for sports for all the neighbouring communities, the $25,000 went to restoring the softball field, volleyball area, walking trails, and the chalet which was affected by Hurricane Igor and general wear and tear.
Therapeutic Riding Program
Creston has used the $25,000 towards making improvements to the Therapeutic Riding Facility, a program that teaches horseback riding to children and adults with disabilities. The money was used towards creating a permanent accessible washroom facility, fixing the mounting ramp, and purchasing a new horse.
Manitou & Area Community Arena
The $25,000 helped enlarge the Community Arena allowing it to double in size as a town hall in order to better host weddings and other large social events. The money has also enabled the arena to be wheelchair accessible.
THS Track Quest
The $25,000 has gone to help the $500,000 initiative (of which over $400,000 has now been raised) of building a brand new track and field complex that will be used by students, seniors, disabled, fire fighters, police, military personnel and families in general.
Carter Antila Memorial SkatePark
The $25,000 has gone towards reaching their goal of raising $400,000 by the end of 2012. With that money they are building a permanent skate/BMX facility that can be enjoyed year round. The $400,000 is part of the Carter Antila Memorial fund, to fulfill Carter’s wish of building a truly functional SkatePark.
