We’re pleased to host our 2011 Founders’ Open Bonspiel this weekend! 20 Teams will enjoy our hospitality and compete in games running through Sunday, November 6, 2011.
Progress in the competition may be tracked online in the 2011 Founders Online Draw Sheets.
Our first bonspiel of the season is complete, and the results are in.
The Pursuit of Happiness is an in-house bonspiel dedicated to the memory of three of our members who recently passed away, all of whom had a particular affinity for working with beginning curlers both on and off the ice. All teams consist of two experienced curlers and two beginners.

Our season gets underway with the first league game on Wednesday, Oct 12, and the first bonspiel (the Pursuit of Happiness) the following weekend. While our leagues are almost full, there are still some opportunites for those who may wish to join the club. Contact Membership for information on what openings there are, and onto a waiting list if none match your availability.
We had a successful run of pre-season Curling Experiences, and are now looking forward. There are not any sessions currently scheduled, but we are looking at the calendar and maintaining a contact list. Visit The Curling Experience page to get more information as it becomes available.
As always, we will be running group outings throughout the season during the day on weekdays. The Outings tab above will get you more information.
Time to hit the ice!
