Harvey Luong - Vice-President

Harvey took one of the first Learn to Curl sessions offered by the City of Mississauga at the Dixie Curling club back in 2002, then joined the Wednesday night men’s league right after that session and has been with the club ever since.  Starting at one night a week for many years, has gradually joined a few more leagues over time.  In the 2016-2017 season, he curled in the Monday Night Mens, Tuesday 4:30 OCYOR, Tuesday Night OCYOR, Friday Night Mixed and spared on the Wednesday Night Mens.  As a CPA, CMA (Certified Management Accountant) working for a small accounting software company as a software and systems analyst, and past Treasurer for a Condo Board, he hopes to be able to help the Board where he can.

Jessica Shipmaker - Secretary

I have been a member of Dixie for 5 years. I've been an active member since my first season, participating in Tuesday CYOR, Wednesday Mixed, Thursday CYOR and Friday Mixed, and sparing in many other sections when called upon. I occasionally can be found helping out behind the scenes at many of the bonspiels Dixie hosts, as well as participating in them.

I am a flight attendant for Air Canada, and regularly run into curlers (World Champions and some Dixie members too!) while in the friendly skies. Prior to my current career I worked as an executive assistant for several years.

Besides curling I enjoy playing softball, hockey and many other sports. I love to travel and ventured to Latvia this past spring to participate in the Latvian Mixed Doubles Curling Cup where I competed against teams who then went on to the Mixed Doubles World Championships.

Craig Morrison - Director

Craig has been a member of the Dixie Curling Club for the past 12 years. He's been curling for the past 25 years and to this day, he still can't hit the broom. He currently curls in the Tuesday OCYOR, Wednesday OCYOR, Friday Day Men's, and the Monday Day Men's league where he is also the convenor. Even though he's curling four times a week, he doesn't know why he's not getting better. Craig is happily retired and loving every minute of it. He is also the convenor for the Bert Bertuzzi Skins Bonspiel and can't wait for the upcoming season!
