Closing in on start of curling season

The Chilliwack Curling Club is buzzing with activity with the new season just around the corner.

The Chilliwack Curling Club fired up their plant on Monday, preparing for the imminent start of the season.

The club gets things rolling with an open house Sept. 9.

From 1 to 4 p.m., anyone wanting to try the sport can give it a whirl free of charge.

CCC’s annual Learn to Curl clinic runs Sept. 11-13, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  at a cost of $20, tax included.

CCC is offering something new this fall, an adult Getting Started in Curling league. Developed by John Morris (Kevin Martens’ third), it’s a comprehensive 20 week program with a low student-to-paid-instructor ratio.

It involves a step-by-step 10 week instructional program followed by 10 weeks of games at a cost of $250, taxes in.  The Ottawa Curling Club started the same program two years ago and now has a three year waiting list. CCC plans to launch their new program in late September.
