Due to Covid issues, the Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel will not be held this season. (See a note from our committee at the end of the newsletter) In its place, we are holding the Spring Thaw Spiel on the March 25-27 weekend. This will be an open format bonspiel at $320 per team. Features include an iron toss with really old curling "irons," rather than granite stones, plus four-end Skins games on Saturday night after dinner. Dinner will be provided by Smoke & Bones BBQ,. Extra dinner tickets are $30 each. Online Registration Avilable Here

With all the interest, we've added a five-session learn-to-curl program that runs on weekday evenings in April, starting on Monday, Apr. 4.

Last day of curling and locker clean out deadline is April 30

League play may be over, but we still keep the ice in until the end of April for rentals. Members have access to practice ice in April as well.

If you have rented a locker this season, please be sure to remove all items and your lock by our last day of curling, April 30. Members are not permitted to keep a lock on lockers over the off season or reserve the same locker for next season.

Note From Our Special Events Committee 

The Barry Naimark Charity Skins will be back next year with Rainbow Refugee as the beneficiary of the event.

With the uncertainty of COVID restrictions we decided there was not adequate time to plan an event that would raise the most possible funds for Charity.  
So, save the date for next March.
 
If you still want some skins action, sign up for the Spring Thaw bonspiel. There will be four end skins games after dinner. 
 
On behalf of the Special Events Committee,
Kathy McInnes, co-chair
