CURLING NEWS:

MEN WANTED: Ha-ha, this is not a club sponsored dating site, it’s an invitation to men members to join the ladies on FRIDAY AFTERNOONS AT 1 PM for some fun curling in the open league.  It seems the ladies have a great desire to show off their curling skills and teach men how to have fun on the ice!

TUESDAY EVENING OPEN LEAGUE: Jan McGarry reports: “The Tuesday evening open league is new to the club this year and it is a terrific success! We have 6 teams comprised of the perfect mix of new and experienced curlers, new members, previous members, male, female, young and dare I say “seasoned” curlers! This makes for fun games and also great conversation after the games… having fun is easy with this group and new friendships are forming! Similar to the other leagues, we have been challenged to learn the new COVID protocols but everyone is committed to playing safe and enjoying the game. Every Tuesday we curl alongside the Learn to Curl (LTC) group and we see some very keen and talented new curlers! We look forward to welcoming LTC graduates to the Tuesday night league in the winter draw!”

WEDNESDAY EVENING MIXED DOUBLES: 15 teams curl in two draws on Wednesday evenings (1 team has a bye). Doubles curling is an enjoyable, fast moving, strategic game. If you haven’t tried this curling format you can join our league when the new draw begins January 20.  You can sign up with a partner or as a single.  Come on out for some fun and interesting curling.  Contact Doug Hamilton: jandd@bmts.com
