Seniors curling club seeks new members

Senior curlers of all skill levels are invited to join the Duncan Seniors Curling Club, which begins play next month.

Senior curlers of all skill levels are invited to join the Duncan Seniors Curling Club, which begins play next month. No experience is required.

“It’s more of a friendly thing,” spokesperson Sharol Tomshak said. “It’s not high competition, but there are some good curlers within the teams.”

Curlers don’t have to have a team to register. The club divides all the members up into mixed teams of men and women each season.

“It’s a nice way to get to know people and have some fun, especially for people who are new to the community,” Tomshak said.

The club plays two seasons each year: October to December and January to March, with new teams in each season. Each season wraps up with a windup funspiel and banquet.

Fees are $250 for the entire year, but the club offers lower rates for curlers who want to sign up for just one season.

Game nights are twice a week at the Glen Harper Curling Centre on Sherman Road, although there is the option to curl just once a week

“It’s very flexible,” Tomshak said.

Members of the club range in age up into their late 80s.

“It shows you can still keep curling for years,” Tomshak said.

For more information or to sign up, contact Sharol Tomshak at 250-597-8224 or Bryan Aaberg at 250-324-8927.
