There will be practice ice on Wednesday October 22nd from 8:15 to 9:30pm.  No charge for curling club members, $5 for non-members.


Information for new curlers

If you are new to our club, the following may be helpful:
Air temperature in the curling rink is 40F (4.4C) so wear suitable clothing.  Sliders are available at no cost.  Rental brooms are available for $2.00.  Of course, having your own equipment is preferable, but not necessary.  Absolutely no outdoor footwear is permitted on the ice surface (no exceptions).  A "learn to curl" clinic will be held near start of the season, and will be announced on the website when a date an time is confirmed.

Players looking for a team/Teams looking for players

If you are looking for players for your team, check the Member List page for information.  If you are wanting to curl, and are looking for a team, check the Member List  page for information on how to add your name to the list.


New Registration Process

For Monday and Thursday leagues, a new registration process is in effect.  You will have the option of individual registration or team registration.  A team registration will cost $720, and is valid for up to 6 players.  There will be a additional $50 charge for teams with 7 players, and and additional $100 charge for teams with 8 players.  Teams can not have more than 8 members.  Team registrations must be paid in one lump sum, or two post dated cheques.  The curling club will no longer chase down individual team members for split payments of a team membership. Team payment may be made by individual team members, but must be made all at the same time (ie. The full team membership must be paid at one time, divided up among players however they choose).  Alternatively, you have the option of paying individually according to the fees listed on the Member Information page for adults and seniors. Note that individual memberships are not pro-rated based on the number of team members (ie. for a team of 6 adults registering individually in one league, they would each pay $180).  Discounted rates apply for those playing in a second league.
