There will be free beginner and intermediate curling clinics for adults happening next week at the Campbell River Curling Club.

Those planning on attending Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be present each of the three nights as the instructors will be building on and reviewing skills taught the previous evening.

The beginner clinic runs from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Those attending the beginner clinic should arrive at 6:10 p.m. so they can be sized for sliders and brushes, which are also provided free of charge.

Beginners 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 one year or more experience) will run from 8-9 p.m. 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, or have any questions, 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. Come on out and try a new sport or improve on your current skills. The curling club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season, so many special events are planned!
