Journal Pioneer - - SPORTS - JOUR­NAL PI­O­NEER STAFF

The ice is in and a new sea­son is about to start at Western Com­mu­nity Curl­ing Club in Al­ber­ton.

Club pres­i­dent Fr. Art Pen­der­gast said stick curl­ing has re­ally caught on in West Prince. “Peo­ple are com­ing back who thought they couldn’t curl any­more,” he said. “It gets peo­ple ac­tive.”

There’s lots of fun and ex­er­cise for every­one who en­joy the tra­di­tional four-per­son game, too, he points out.

To in­tro­duce peo­ple to the tra­di­tional game or to stick curl­ing, the club is hold­ing an open house from 7 to 9 p.m., on Tues­day, Nov. 13, and Thurs­day, Nov. 15. Ex­pe­ri­enced curlers will be in at­ten­dance both evenings to help in­tro­duce new­com­ers to the roar­ing game.

New and ex­pe­ri­enced curlers can drop in those nights and prac­tise for free.
