Daniel Boisvert

 

 

 

Hi, I’m Daniel Boisvert from Delta, British Columbia where I am a Notary Public.  I have two children, Noah (12) and Abby (9). 

I curl at the Tunnel Town Curling Club where I was the Men’s Club Champion in 2014.         

I have served on the Board of Directors of the Tunnel Town Curling Club for the past 8 years.  I have served as president for 3 of those years and have just finished as past president.  I have been involved in many aspects of the club. I have worked with Bon Spiel Committees on several events.  I have also spent a number of years improving both the ice conditions and the curling rocks to enhance the quality of play at our club. 

I was involved quite heavily with preparations and hosting of the Scottish players when they played at our club in 2013.  It was the most memorable experience I have had at the curling club.  I feel that the Strathcona cup embodies everything curling is about.   Strong competition mixed with strong bonds of friendship.  Greig Henderson, the captain of the 2013 team, and I, are still in touch to this day.  I hope to play against him in 2018.

I am a member of the Beach Grove Golf Club and have served on committees in the past as well.  I am also a strong sponsor of many of the activities that happen at the golf club.  As well I enjoy cycling.

 

My kids are both involved in sports and I volunteer with their organizations, time permitting.  I also attend many different charity events around my home town and the lower mainland area.

 

I currently sit as a Director of the Society of Notaries Public of British Columbia where I work to guide the profession of Notaries throughout BC.  I have also been involved with the Notary Foundation as a Governor.  The foundation is responsible for giving grants and supports to worthy causes that fall within the mandated of the foundation.

 

Scotland is the home of three of my passions: Golf, Curling, and Whiskey.  I also have a friend there, which I made when Scotland last visited Canada for the Strathcona cup.  The captain of the team Greig Henderson and I spent many hours together and formed a friendship.  I am looking forward to spending time with him in Scotland.
