Adults can learn to curl at free clinics

A team of excellent instructors will be offering their expertise

There will be “free” beginner and intermediate curling clinics happening on Tuesday, Sept. 27, Wednesday, Sept. 28, and Thursday, Sept. 29 at the curling club.

Those planning on attending are expected to be present each of the three nights as the instructors will be building on and reviewing skills taught the previous night. The beginner clinic will begin each night at 6:30 and run till 7:30.Those attending the beginner clinic should arrive at 6:15 so they can be sized for sliders and brushes, which are also provided free of charge. Curlers should wear warm, loose, comfortable clothing (sweatpants are great), and carry in a pair of flat-soled shoes to wear on the ice (runners are excellent). The Intermediate clinic(for curlers who have 1 year or more experience) will run from 8-9 p.m. each night. Curlers will have a chance to improve their deliveries and brushing techniques and play a two-end mini-game the last night to try out their new skills. If you are planning to attend either clinic, call the curling club manager, Susan, at 250-287-4200 to register. Walk-ins are also welcome, but advance registration is appreciated.

A team of excellent instructors will be offering their expertise, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity.
