Curling Club looks to November for start of season

With some work related to safety compliance requirements for the Curling Club facility's ice making plant taking up much of October, the start of the 2018-19 Curling season is now almost ready to go.

A work party took care of the paint jobs required for the House surface area of the ice last evening, and league organizers are starting to put together the scheduling for the start of the season, a start which is anticipated at last report to be in the first week of November.

Because of the delayed start to the season, the two early season tournaments the Corporate Challenge and the Octobeerfest originally planned for this weekend, have both been put aside for the moment, set to be rescheduled at a future date.

The Schedule for the remaining events and Bonspiels has been released, with the first of the
majors to come in November with the Ladies Bonspiel of November 23 to 25.

Two events mark the calendar for January with the New Beers Resolution on the calendar for January 5th and the Fisherman's Sturling Spiel to take place on January 19th.

The RONA"s Mixed Bonspiel will take place from February 22 to 24.

And this years much anticipated Marine Men's Bonspiel has marked March 8 to 10 on the calendar.

As for league play, the Prince Rupert Curling Club's Facebook page has listed some of the contact people for a few of the leagues that are offered at the Seal Cove Club.

Bruce Mullin will be running the Wednesday Open League, while Crystal Bernhardt is organizing the Friday Mixed League for this season.

Mona Izumi is also looking to set up a Thursday afternoon Seniors' drop in league for the season, you can learn more about all of those options from the Curling Club's Facebook page.
