Prince Rupert Curling Club project with Wheelhouse Brewing gains provincial notice

A local program that helped to introduce new participants to the sport of curling has found its success recounted in a provincial curling magazine.

The event which we highlighted on the blog back in January, offered up a night of Free Curling at the Seal Cove Club,  as New Beers Resolution Curling Night brought out some 120 curlers to the club, some of them brand new to the sport.

The article which appears in The Curling Connection, outlines the association between the Curling Club and the local craft Brewers of the Wheelhouse Brewery, a combination that has now put on two
of the popular sessions.

Jamie Malthus, the President of the Prince Rupert Curling Club offers up some background to the project and how it has already delivered success in the key demographics that the Curling Club was hoping to recruit new members from.

The idea to brew up the partnership was originally suggested and then move forward on by Mike Cote, a new member on the Curling Club executive.

You can review the full article from the Curl BC website here.
