The opening draw for the Island Stick Curling Tour was hosted at the Western Community Curling Club Thursday, Dec. 5. This kicked off what has become a very popular version of curling and our club does very well at it, what with a few provincial championships already won by local teams.
Go team go! And have a ball in upper Canada.
There is free curling on these three days from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for all new or interested curlers. Beginners are especially welcome and even if you know nothing about stones and brooms and such that's OK since there will be plenty of folks there to show you the ropes.
Curling is a fun winter passtime and good exercise to boot.
Details on when regular curling begins, the teams setup and special events for the coming season will be posted fairly soon.
It's a four-week, once a week program called "Learn to Curl." Check out their Facebook page for more details.
The club is always keen to welcome new members and the Sports Council folks do a great job of introducing people young and old to new sports activities. "Learn to Curl" starts November 26 and it's free.
