The Grand Slam of Curling wrapped up last weekend with big team names like Stoughton, Martin, McEwen, Koe and Olsrud, just to name a few on the men’s side and Lawton, Jones, Muirhead, Nedohin and Middaugh on the ladies draw.
It was excellent curling to watch from the couch.
Not unlike the games during league play at the Winfield Curling Club—fun to play when everyone makes their shots.
There is still ice available here for anyone wanting to come out and try our favourite sport or just to practice and hone their skills.
Some teams are still looking for spares to fill in when their teammates go on holidays as well as the senior’s drop-in league that goes out on the ice every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1 p.m.
Every league has a variety of skill level, but are curling for exercise and social interaction as all the members at the club are very friendly.

This is a fun bonspiel that has both men and women curling together and having a great time both upstairs and on the ice.
