DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – CurlBC announced the award recipients for the 2020-2021 season, including Jeff Ginter of Dawson Creek Curling Club.
According to a release, Ginter was nominated for the Ron Houston Administrator of the Year award by club president Deanna Larson.
“When it comes to the sport of curling, Jeff pours himself into grassroots initiatives including elementary programs and learn-to-curl programs,” says club president Deanna Larson. “He is welcoming to newcomers and a highly motivating and encouraging instructor focused on skill development and love of the game.”
While acting as the General Manager, Ginter is also the head ice technician. Those two roles aren’t his only ones though, Ginter does whatever is needed for the club to be successful.
One example is his role as liaison with the City, promoting the club and its successes at council meetings.
Ginter was quick to pass the credit for the award to his many colleagues and peers.
“No one person can manage a successful curling club alone, so I share this award with my wife and children, and my Dawson Creek curling ‘family,’ our board of directors and staff, awesome volunteers, hundreds of curlers, and our numerous community partners,” says Ginter.
Ginter says the sport of curling has given him many things in life.
“The sport of curling is truly special to me. It’s literally built me a family, and now a career, and has charted my life’s path through thousands of cherished friendships along the way.”
