Daytime Drop-in, Team, and Stick Curling

Daytime curling – not just for Seniors!

The Cornwall Curling Club offers a variety of daytime curling options, including afternoon 2-Person Stick Curling (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 12:30-2:30)  and a team curling league (Wednesday afternoon 12:30 to 2:30 pm with overflow Wednesday from 10 am to noon), in addition to weekday morning drop-in curling, from 10 to noon (Monday to Friday with limited availability on Wednesdays due to team curling overflow). Note that our daytime curling is open to EVERYONE – not just Seniors. If you are a seasonal or shift worker, or any other person who has spare time during the day, why not get in some curling?

League/Draw Descriptions: 

Weekday Morning Drop-in Curling Draw:

Daytime Drop-in Curling takes place Monday through Friday from 10 am to noon. Please arrive by 9:45 for name entry into this curling drop-in.
This is a special “no commitment league” where teams are made up daily from the players in attendance. Curlers with all levels of skill are welcome.
You must have a Daytime Curling Profile/Product or Purchase Drop-In tickets or pay a Drop In fee.
This draw works like this: Club members regularly in the draw have discs that they drop in a cup labeled with the position that they want to play.
Non-Member Drop-in players for this draw are required to obtain a chit for this purpose from the office by paying the drop-in fee.
It will have their name on it and will be turned in by the drawmaster to the office after it is used.
* Please note that some Wednesday drop-in days may have limited availability on Wednesday due to Wednesday Competitive Curling overflow.
 
(For online registration, please ensure you purchase a membership too, under products).

Drop-in curling rates for our Club are $10 per game, or $5 for juniors, taxes in. For those who “drop-in” frequently for the morning daytime draw, a pack of 10 daytime drop-in fees is available at a discounted rate of $80. Prices subject to change for the 2020-21 season.

Afternoon Stick Curling: Teams of two using Delivery Sticks generally stay together throughout the season. Any combo of male and/or female. If you don’t have a team, we’ll make one. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 12:30-2:30 pm. 

Two Person Stick Curling is a relatively new sport which provides challenge and excitement for people of all ages on an equal and competitive basis, and in a social atmosphere. Stick Curling is also appropriate for people with physical challenges such as knee, back, heart, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, ankle, or foot problems.  The rocks are delivered with a curling stick from a standing or sitting position (i.e. wheelchairs) enabling everyone to participate competitively.

As well as the two person sport, stick curlers are also welcome to curl with “hack delivery” curlers in all other (four person per team) draws at Cornwall. The Club is also fully wheelchair accessible right down to the ice level, and, although we currently do not have any members who play from wheelchairs, they are welcome, and we had wheelchair participants in the Canadian Stick Championships.

Note that stick curlers are welcome in the Club Championships and the Masters (age 60 or over) Championships, but not in other provincial championships that lead to a Canadian Curling Association national final, such as the Brier, the Seniors, or the Scotties.

2 person stick curling draws go at 12:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. 

The Cornwall Curling Club knows a thing or two about the sport of 2 person Stick Curling – we’ve hosted the Canadian Championships twice, and in 2013 our host club teams beat teams from other provinces to capture both divisions, along with the consolation final, with Roddie MacLean and Paul Field winning the open division (and combination of men and women), Ruth Stavert and Eileen Blanchard taking the women’s, and Vern Chowan and Grant Leard capturing the consolation section.

In Stick Curling, there are two curlers per team, who deliver their rocks with delivery sticks, with each team member delivering from opposite ends of the ice sheet. Sweeping is allowed only from the hog line to the back of the house at the playing end. Two curlers, one from each team, alternately deliver 6 stones each per end, while their teammate skips that end. The roles are then reversed, and the partners deliver the stones back. No stone may be removed from play until the fourth stone of each end. Games are six ends and take about an hour to play.
