It’s a lot of fun, so come on down and join in.

Have you thought about curling, but not sure what it is all about?

Come on down to the curling rink on Oct. 21 and 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. and try out the game.

All you need is a clean pair of shoes and the will to try a great social game.

These two nights are for teens and adults and costs $30 for the two nights.

If you absolutely love the game and want to join our league play, we will take that $30 off the cost of the league.

The cost is $15. Please bring a clean pair of shoes and a helmet for your child.

If there is room on the ice, we are willing to teach the parents as well. The cost would be $15.

So come on down give this great social game a chance. The club have great ice and great people to welcome you.

We hope to see you all on the ice.
