Free curling clinic this week
Ifyou have never tried the sport of curling, which is gaining in popularity all over the world by the way, now’s your chance! The Border Curling Club will be holding two free curling clinics where people, teens and adults, can try out curling for themselves with the help of experienced curlers to give them a few tips. The clinics will be followed by a Funspiel: a curling tournament that the new curlers can take part in on teams with more experienced curlers.
The first clinic will be held on April 6th, from 1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. The second clinic is on April 10th, from 7:00 to 9:00 in the evening. “We wanted to give people a choice of going to a clinic in the day or in the evening if they work in the day. They can also go to both clinics if they like,” commented Richard Allard of the Border Curling Club.
Once someone has taken part in at least one clinic, they can then play in the Funspiel which will take place on April 11th, 12th and the 13th. “Each team will have to have at least one new player on it,” said Mr. Allard. That tournament is also free to take part in. The Funspiel will finish with a mechoui dinner, however, there is a fee for the supper.
