WELCOME TO OUR CLUB
Since it opened on November 25th 2000, the priority of the Club has been to enjoy the game of curling. To that end, it is hoped that the following information may be of assistance to anyone thinking about “hurrying hard”!
For new members to the club there is a 25% discount for the first year. You may sign up for participation in 2, 3 or more leagues a week at reduced rates. Many choose to play twice a week.
An attempt has been made to offer as great a variety as possible. Leagues range from mixed to ladies, to mens, to a Friday night mixed curl and dine. There are competitive leagues and those where the social aspect is emphasized more. For example, someone new to curling, and the area, may be interested in the Monday and Thursday day curling which has a tag format draw system. In this format all the names of the players attending that day are mixed up and drawn to form the team for that day. As a result, you generally play with different team members each time and therefore meet more people.
The only equipment encouraged is a pair of curling shoes which are required to play as safe as possible and a curling broom for sweeping.
Following registration in September the regular season starts on or around October 15th. There usually a practice and clinic week preceding the beginning of league play. This year, a time will be set aside for a “New Curler’s Clinic” that will discuss and answer questions pertaining to the rules, equipment, curling format, including curling with a stick for those with back or hip problems; followed by some on-ice instruction. Hopefully this will make the transition to regular curling as seamless as possible.
During the spring and summer the Curling Club is open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for shuffleboard.
