The Winfield Curling Club has officially kicked off its 2013—2014 season with all leagues starting on Oct. 6.

Prior to league play we had teams come from all over to use our facility. Team Kelly Scott, Jeff Richard as well as the Cotter foursome practiced to get ready for the Vernon Cashspiel and Olympic pre-trials.

The women’s Team Korea was also here spending hours on our sheets—truly amazing to watch.

Meanwhile, our members took advantage of free ice time to get ready for the season.

The Army and Navy league runs every Sunday morning with four sheets full, Monday has the ladies league starting at 9 a.m. and is still looking for one more team to fill their draw.

Monday night men’s has some new faces as well as Tuesday evening ladies league.

Juniors have their slot on Wednesdays at 4 p.m., followed by pop and popcorn.

Thursday night is men’s league and could still use a few more players, while Friday night open league started out with 10 teams—up from eight last year. There is also drop-in curling on Fridays at 8:30 and we encourage all members and non-members to come down and throw some rocks. It’s fun and great exercise.

Our seniors have started as well and hit the sheets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1 p.m. This is a great group of social people that welcome anyone over 50 to come and play.

So get off the couch and come curling.
