Free Curling Fun Night Oct. 25

Register to join the Barriere curling club leagues in Barriere

The Barriere Curling Club is not just about curling.  The building and activities are controlled by the Barriere Recreational Society.

The building itself is a valuable asset to the community through the many activities that have been held in the curling rink, such as:  Barriere Senior Secondary Graduation Ceremonies, flea markets and as an exhibit hall during the North Thompson Fall Fair and Provincial Winter Fair.

In association with the North Thompson Agriplex, the curling rink building has been used by other groups in 2013 including:  the Rural Living Expo and Trade Show, the Canadian Sheep Breeders Association, Back Country Horsemen, the BC and Canadian Barrel Racing Associations.

Larger sized building combinations with the agriplex and the curling rink are unique to the North Thompson and bring revenue opportunities to the area businesses.

The Barriere Recreation Society (Barriere Curling Rink) volunteers have provided many food concessions, building rental space and services to all of the above events over this past summer and fall.  As we move into the winter season, curling is about to begin.

Another curling season is about to start at the Barriere Recreational Society, which brings an opportunity to meet new people and re-acquaint with old friends.

Registration and information has been ongoing at AG Foods on October 19 and 20, and will continue on October 26 and 27.

On Friday October 25, we are hosting a Curling Registration plus a Fun Spiel and other games for families at the curling rink.  For the October 25 Free Curling and Fun Night, there is a Pot Luck Dinner at 6 p.m., and the curling games start at 7 p.m.  Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.  We will be giving away two turkeys for closest to the button shots.

We are looking for younger new curlers and families new to curling.  We have curling equipment available for use for new curlers.

As well, there are free lessons for new curlers and stick curlers on October 30, and November 6, from 7 to 9 p.m.  Curling fees for the Wednesday Open League are half price for the year.  Please enquire.

Curling leagues will start the week of October 29, and they include:  Ladies on Tuesdays at 7 p.m., Seniors on Wednesdays at 1 p.m., and Family Open League at 7 p.m., Men’s on Thursday at 7 p.m., and Mixed on Fridays at 7 p.m.

Youth leagues will begin soon.  Watch for more announcements regarding registration and start dates at the schools.

Information on curling is available from Audrey Rilcoe at (250) 672-9217, or Susan Bondar at (250) 672 5334.
