Make-up Games & Practice Ice

Below are the dates for make-up games and practice ice. Two Wednesday's a month will be available.  The sign-up sheet for make-up games is posted in the curling lounge.  If you plan to play a make-up game for either league, you must sign up a minimum of 2 days prior to the make-up game date (by Monday night for the upcoming Wednesday).  All make-up games are scheduled for 8:15 pm (following junior curling).

Practice ice will also be available on these dates at 8:15pm.  In the unlikely event that four make-up games are scheduled, and practice ice becomes unavailable, it will be posted here.

IMPORTANT: If the ice is not being utilized by 8:15pm, either with a make-up game or practice, then the ice and lounge will be closed, and the curling club locked for the night.  In the event there are no make-up games, practice ice will be available until 9:30pm provided the ice is being utilized the entire time.

Dates for make-up games & practice ice: Nov 25th, Dec 2nd, Dec 16th, Jan 6th, Jan 20th, Feb 10th, Feb 24th, Mar 9th.
