Winter Curling Event

Apparently it is winter in Canada. It certainly doesn’t feel that way here in southern Ontario. Especially since it would not be too hard to find some open water to go out for a sail. If anyone is feeling crazy enough let me know and I will bring a camera. At least for the next few months the club house will still be in hibernation. But the social side of the club will be holding some events on frozen water in the mean time.
The annual Conestoga Sailing Club curling event is on Saturday February 11 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the KW Granite Club – Curling Rink on the Park – Seagram Drive, Waterloo. This event is best described as a pick-up game of curling. No curling experience is necessary and the only piece of equipment you need is a clean pair of shoes. Clean high grip shoes (tennis style shoe are excellent substitutions) that will allow you to safely walk on the ice surface are best. The cost of the event is $12.00 per person which is paid directly to the Granite Club. We will reserve three sheets of ice which 24 people.
For more information and RSVP – Al or Carol Nichols 519-896-0238 alnichols@sympatico.ca.
There is usually a group that dines at a local restaurant after the event. If you would like to join the gang just let Al or Carol know when you RSVP.
