The CURLSASK 2016 Annual General Meeting was held in Regina on April 30, 2016. A formal Notice of Meeting and detailed agenda was sent to all Member Clubs and Associate Members on March 21, 2016.

The CURLSASK 2014-2015 season wrapped up officially on Saturday, April 25th, but not quite as planned. A major Saskatoon snowfall caused a 4 hour power outage at the Ramada Hotel on the Saturday afternoon/evening of the CURLSASK Annual General Meeting and Gala Awards Dinner. This caused a significant change of plans for all those attending. The Annual Meeting was finished via cell phone flashlights and the Gala Dinner and Parade of Champions was cancelled. But the Awards were still presented in a make shift program in the hotel restaurant that had windows providing natural light.
