|The 2017-18 Curling Season is just over the horizon for the Seal Cove club
The Jim Ciccone Civic Centre isn't the only location to turn on the refrigeration units this month, across town at the Prince Rupert Curling Club in Seal Cove the pebbled ice will soon be host to the return of the curling season, with a pair of events set for September to help build the sport in the city.
The Curling Club is hosting it's first ever Corporate Curling challenge, an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to organize some teams and put their skills to the test in a friendly competition.
Set for September 30th from Noon to 7 PM, the event has space for 16 Teams and will feature 4 end games. For those a little unfamiliar with curling a trainer will be on hand and all equipment for the day long challenge will be provided by the Curling Club.
That same evening, the Seal Cove facility will feature the return of the popular Octobeerfest, celebrating its 4th Anniversary this year.
Scheduled from 7:30 until the late evening hours it offers beginners a chance to learn some of the finer points of the sport and find out what all the buzz is about when it comes the roaring game.
As with the Corporate Challenge, all equipment is provided by the Curling Cub and a trainer will be on hand to help ease you into the art of throwing stones and sweeping the pathway to the button.
To help make the experience both sporting and social, Mucho Gusto catering and some of the products of Prince Rupert's Wheelhouse Brewery will be on hand through the day.
You can register for either event by email at email@example.com
