We’ve got four No Cost/No Obligation opportunities coming up for you to give curling a try and/or learn to curl!
This coming Sunday October 15, in conjunction with the Town of Cornwall’s Cornfest celebrations, the Cornwall Curling Club will have an open house from 1:00 -3:00 P.M. Everyone is welcome (not just Cornwall residents). You will be able to find out about our sport, tour our Club, check out our canteen, bar and pro shop, and have an opportunity to go out on the ice and try sliding, and/or throwing a curling rock. Please note that this is a demonstration more than a lesson. If you are interested in learning more, come back to our curling school the following week.
Note that all ages are welcome to this Open House, Curlers under age 12 who go on the ice are, for their safety, requested to supply and wear their own helmets (hockey, ski, bicycle, or other CSA-approved helmet).
Open House, Curling School and New Members Registration Evenings
Our FREE, no obligation, adult Learn to Curl sessions will take Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings Oct 16-18 from 6:30 to 8:30. Come any one, two, or all three nights! We will have both new and continuing classes each night. Wear loose-fitting or stretchy pants, a light jacket, and bring clean sneakers. Everything else you need will be provided.
New members’ registration for all ages will take at the same time, and Board of Directors members and staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. It’s also an Open House, so, if you’re curious, just stop by, ask any questions you may have, and have a look around (be sure to check out the bar!).
Please note that these Curling School sessions are for adult curlers only. Junior curlers receive instruction as part of their regular program, which begins on Oct. 29 (Juniors may try it out and get a refund if they don’t like it). Junior instruction goes Sundays from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, and Tuesdays from 5-6 pm.
Daytime curling 10 to noon Monday through Friday starts on the 16th. Teams are made up as players arrive. There is a $10 drop-in fee for non-members, or 10 drop-in passes for $80. Reduced availability on Wednesdays once the daytime team league gets going, as the morning timeslot is used for overflow. There’s afternoon stick curling, too – check with the Club for more info .
Evening league curling starts on Monday Oct. 23rd.
