Two spots open for Thurs. evening single-entry draw

We just found out we have two opening for curlers on  our Thursday evening single entry draw, with four games at 6:30 pm and two at 8:30 each week, so you play more often at 6:30 than at 8:30. If you are interested, contact the Club as soon as possible, as round #2 starts next Thursday Dec. 14! Teams are shuffled after every seven week round. Prizes for winning team each round. Our prices are pro-rated throughout the season, so you don’t pay for the first draw that just finished. This draw is suitable for both new and experienced curlers.

 

Looking for another Wednesday evening team

We currently have a new team on the waiting list to curl in the Wednesday evening Ladder League. The next round starts  Dec. 20. As we do not want an odd number of teams in one of the  pools, we are looking for one more team. Player price for the rest of the season is $153.00 + HST + Curl PEI fee for new members. For curlers who are one-night members and wish to add another night it’s even less. Contact the Club if you are interested in entering a team or curling on a team on Wednesday evening.
