Curlers set to rock

Registration starts today, with an upcoming clinic slated for newbies

Beginner and veteran curlers will like what the upcoming season has to offer.

Registration for a number of leagues – including mens, ladies, mixed and a fun business league – starts today (Sept. 24), and goes again Oct. 1, from 4-7 p.m.

The club, located next to the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on Airport Road, is actively looking for four-player teams for the business league, which goes Monday nights. It’s open to all skill levels, great for new curlers, and a good time for friends and family.

For those wanting to learn more about the sport, or looking for a refresher, a curling clinic is set for Oct. 3-5. People can sign up for $25. The lessons consist of things such as the rules of the game, etiquette, scoring, strategy, delivery and sweeping techniques.

The club is hosting four big bonspiels this winter.

A junior bonspiel is slated for November.

The Western Canadian Blind Curling Championships and the annual men’s bonspiel are set for January. The ladies bonspiel is set for March.
