Top Dog parking spot up for grabs

Don't feel like walking a lot before curling? Here's your chance to get a reserved spot near the door to the Chilliwack Curling Club.

The Chilliwack Curling Club’s ‘Adult Learn to Curl’ program starts tomorrow night, but there’s still time to register.

New students are welcome anytime during the first few weeks. The program starts with eight weeks of instruction on Friday nights, from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m., with a low student-to-instructor ratio.

That’s followed by 10 weeks of games with on-ice mentors who will continue to hone technique and answer questions about skills and strategies.

The cost of the program is $250 (taxes included) and all equipment is provided.

“Former graduates of this program are now enjoying the game as proficient curlers,” said club manager Bruce Renwick. “We have found that this is a great way to learn the game and provides much more enjoyment in their future curling years as they tend to make more shots.”

Meanwhile, the CCC will also hold its annual ‘Top Dog’ competition Friday night at 7:45 p.m.

This contest involves six curling shots, darts and a bean-bag toss. The winner gets one league-fee paid for, plus the biggest prize of all, the Top Dog parking spot.

“This is a reserved parking spot in the staff parking area for the season, and it is very coveted,” Renwick said. “If you’ve been around some nights, you know people have to walk a fair distance. The late draw each night has around 96 to 128 people curling, plus dart leagues three nights a week.”
