8 ENDER!

Congratulations to Chris, Harold, Hennie and Ray on their 8 ENDER on Thursday, October 22, 2020 in the Senior Mixed League! How exciting for them, as Chris said ‘It’s the first one in 66 years of curling!

Curling is Back!!

Welcome to Fall Curling 2020! For those curling this fall, things will feel a little different. With masks on, maybe using different doors, having to sign Declarations, keeping our distances-no hugging and sanitize – sanitize! As for our game of curling, we may have to stand apart and have sweeping restrictions, but basically it will still be the sport that we all love to play!

Curling starts on Wednesday, October 14th. The afternoon Ladies will have the honors of starting off the season on the fresh new ice!  The Men’s League goes in the evening, its a full house with 12 teams!

The ice looks Great!  Thanks to Josh and his volunteers for all their hard work and effort, we are very fortunate!    Good Curling!
