Curling club a going concern this time of year

Still room for spares on many curling team rosters, and the seniors have a great social time as well as throw rocks.

The Winfield Curling Club has been gearing up for the annual Mixed Bonspiel taking place November 15 to 17.

Teams from all over the valley and even the coast are registered to curl in this fun three-day event.

Every year is a little different but it is always a social gathering, whether you’re a curler or not.  So make sure you drop down to the curling club on Bottom Wood Lake Road to watch some pretty darned good shot making and cheer on your favourite team.

The junior program is going strong as well with more than 30 curlers ranging from 7 years old to 14. These kids are so much fun to watch and it is great to see them improve each and every week.

Thanks to instructors Bob, Grant, Lea, Allie, Richard and Terri for their time and energy both on the ice and upstairs serving pop and popcorn.

Last weekend we took 10 juniors to a one-day bonspiel in Kelowna and they did very well.

This is where practice sessions every Wednesday at 4 p.m. pay off in the long run.

Good job to Jasanna, Abby, Laiken and Emily for the girls team and Parker, Tyler, Kegan, Daniel and Kylen for the boys.

And a big thank you to Beth at the Kelowna Curling Club for all her hard work.

It seems like the leagues have just begun but we are already into our sixth week of curling.  Teams are either full or they still require a spare or two, so if you are interested in sparing, please give the club a call at 250-766-3318 and we’ll be happy to put you on the spare list.

The seniors could always use a few more bodies but most days they fill up three sheets with energetic people that love the sport.

They also like socializing after over a cup of coffee and goodies and have become good friends over the years.

This is a great bunch who would make any newbie feel welcome and they curl every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1 p.m. so come out and give curling a try.

Well that’s it for this week and remember to try some drop-in curling on Friday nights at 8:30—bring your family and friends for a fun night of exercise.  See you then and good curling.
