Work Bee Thursday October 8th at 7pm

The curling club will be having a work bee on Thursday, October 8th at 7pm.  Tables, chairs, kitchen equipment and supplies will need to be moved out from the back storage area.  It would be nice to see at least one member from each curling team participate.  Many hands make for light work.  Do your part to help your club.

 Learn to curl clinic October 14th

The curling club will be hosting a free "Learn to Curl" clinic on Wednesday, October 14th at 7pm.  There is no cost, but registration is required. Send an email to info@curlgc.ca with "learn to curl" in the subject line and the names of the people that will be attending the clinic.  Equipment will be provided (sliders and brooms).  Shoes must be clean, and street shoes will not be permitted on the ice.  Air temperature is 40F, so dress warmly.

Adult learn to curl league starts October!

The curling club will be starting a Adult "Learn to Curl" league in October.  This league is for those new to curling, or have not played since the days of corn brooms (a really long time ago).  Here you will learn the game as you go, with specific instruction provided along the way.  The curling club will provide all necessary equipment.  This league will likely take place on Wednesday nights, but has not yet been confirmed.  We will need a minimum of 16 people (4 teams) to make this work.  If you are interested in participating either with a team or individually, please email the club at info@curlgc.ca with your name and contact information.
