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
