As you may all now, the National Police Curling Championship will be held  in St. John’s, Newfoundland in March 2019. There will be a large number of Law Enforcement Personnel from across Canada attending this event. The total cost for police participants (Hotels, Registration, Travel,meals, equipment etc… ) to attend this event falls on them.  The Executive members of R16 has decided to sponsor one of the teams which is participating in this competition. The jackets that will be worn by this team will have the IPA logo on it so they can promote and give some exposure to the IPA at the event.  We feel that it will generate some conversations about the IPA and that there will be photos published in many social medias and local, regional and national police magazines. 


Good Afternoon Regional Directors and NEB Members;


Region 11 is proud to be sponsoring our first annual Police Insignia Collectors Meet on June 29, 2019, in Windsor, Ontario. A poster has been attached for your perusal.  We would like to extended an invitation to any IPA members residing in the surrounding Regions, or who will be visiting in our area, who would like to help volunteer on the day of the show or who would prefer to participate as a vendor or buyer. We are hoping to make this premier one day show a huge success in order to expand the next show to a two day program.


For those Regions in Ontario, if it is possible for you to print off a couple of posters and have them posted in your local Police Agencies or Police Clubs, as well as EMS and Fire Detachments, we would appreciate assistance in spreading the word. We will also be advertising with current patch show and coin  collectors and media sites.


If you have any questions an email address has been set up for the Insignia Meet at . Please feel free to contact us.


Thanks in Advance,
