Our Staff

Stacey Dobbin
General Manager

Stacey’s education, work and volunteer experience has given her some valuable skills needed for her position at the club. She has 30 years of accounting experience, 15 of those years split as an IT Manager. Stacey and her husband Mark moved to North Bay 7 years ago. They love to fish, hunt, and bike. They signed up for curling, a game they knew nothing about, to meet new people. Stacey fell in love with the sport, curling up to 5 times a week, volunteering as a Director both at the FWWCC and the GSOC in North Bay and now working as the General Manager. They have four daughters (and now 3 beautiful grandchildren) that kept her in a volunteer world for 15 years coaching and managing Soccer and Hockey teams travelling to Ohio, Michigan, all over Ontario and as far as PEI.  Being a leader both in sports and on the job taught her first and foremost that for a team to be successful, respect has to go both ways.  Together with her team, her love for the game and the club, they will work to make the North Bay Granite Club, both Curling and Tennis,  the place to be!

Laura Johnston
Regional Curling Professional

Member of the North Bay Granite since 2014.  National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Level Competition Coach.  Proud wife and mother of three children.  My Grandfather introduced me to curling at age 5 at the Prescott Curling Club. 

I have enjoyed several opportunities through curling competitively, some highlights being a silver medal at the Canada Winter Games for Team Ontario in Bathurst, NB and winning the Junior Toronto Curling Association earning a trip to Switzerland.

Most recent curling accomplishments are playing vice on Team Northern Ontario at Mixed Nationals 2020 in Saguenay, QC.

Privileges such as Brockville and Area Sports Hall of Fame Inductee, recipient of Quest for Gold Bursary, and the camaraderie of teammates are all memorable.

Being involved, working with our Granite Members and community dignitaries sharing with them my passion and love for the sport of curling is the best job ever.

Ashley and Jeremy Bin grew up on curling ice and have approximately 20 years of ice experience each. Growing up in Northern Ontario they’d assist their father Bruno at their local curling club with the ice. They also started curling young with their elementary school and the little rockers program. When their dad accepted the Ice Technician job at the North Bay Granite Club in 2005 they moved and continued to work on the ice as a team. Ashley and Jeremy are both Level 2 Certified Ice Technicians and have volunteered for events including the Pinty’s Grand Slam (2019) and Women’s Worlds Curling (2018). Over the years they have both curled competitively and have many highschool banners to their names. They take pride in their work and enthuse others to learn more about the technical aspects of curling that can help their game.
