Free curl­ing clinic this week

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

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.
