Chilliwack Curling Club holding open house

If you’ve ever wanted to try the sport, the club invites you to take the plunge this weekend.

The Chilliwack Curling Club is holding an open house over two days this weekend, with the slogan ‘Throw your first rock at our house.’

CCC manager Bruce Renwick says the club will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, hoping to capitalize on the excitement of the Olympic curling finals that are also happening this weekend.

“All ages are welcome and there will be helpers and instructors available,” Renwick said. “All we ask is that on-ice participants carry clean footwear to the rink and sign a waiver form upon arrival.”

CCC’s current building is in its final season after housing the club since 1952. Next fall curlers will play in a new building that is going up next door. The CCC is hosting a ‘Close the Barn Doors’ bonspiel in early April to say goodbye to the old building.
