Newsletter of the Port Elgin Curling Club
The curling season started on Monday and the club is a busy place again. It is great to see so many new curlers and returning members out on the ice. We all realize that things are different and that COVID has thrown a damper on the way we have done things in the past but we will all do our part and everyone, in the meantime is having fun!
Our OPEN HOUSE was a great success last Saturday. 50+ people were through the house. New members were signed up and there were lots of folks out on the ice giving the game a try. There is lots of interest in LEARN TO CURL and we have the maximum of 20 participating with 5 on the waiting list! The program started on Tuesday evening and there was a great mix of young and “older” on the ice. NEW MEMBERS? At this point we have 29 new members. This number is probably going to increase a wee bit and overall, our membership has increased, the leagues have filled to a healthy level and there is a renewed interest in the club throughout the community. THE ICE is the best we have had this early in the season. There have been challenges with the summer-like weather but Ed Nicholls and the ICE GUYS have worked hard and given us great ice. THE PRO SHOP has been busy and will be open this Saturday from 10AM until 2PM for anyone who needs new gear.
