The Barriere Curling Club has had its own reality make-over with the usual drama that goes along with reality television shows.

The bathrooms on the main level have had lots of water and flooding issues over the past couple of years.  But now, the women’s washroom have had a complete make-over by members of the Curling Club.

Some of the water issues came from leaks in the metal roofing.  Geoff Pullen came to the rescue and repaired the problems.  Many thanks to Geoff for his expertise and assistance.

The building reality drama continued with no electrical power along the north wall.  Electrician, Gary Gamel, came to the rescue for this problem.  Thank you to Gary for sussing out the problem and solving the electrical issue.

Next was the issue of dirty chairs.  As in any public building, things get dirty.  The Interior Savings Credit Union and Insurance Services personnel helped by cleaning the chairs during their day of service to the community.  Thank you to Kim Rhodes, Debra McDonald, Peggy Bunn and Rainy Paul for their hard work and dedication to the community.

The drama continues through the fundraising efforts to keep the Curling Club building running each year.

The Club had purchased another deep fat fryer to increase the volume of French fries sold at the Fall Fair and Provincial Winter Fair concessions.  John Koroll of All In One Electric hooked up the fryer in the concession.  Many thanks for John’s help now and over the years.

The make-over has continued with new membership.  It’s great to see so many new curlers and returning curlers showing their support and enjoying the sport of curling.

The Monday After School Program is really strong again this year.

Youth from seven years old to grade 7 participate in the coaching, games and snacks supplied by members of the Curling Club.

The next event at the Curling Club is a one day bonspiel on Saturday, Nov. 21.  Come and participate, socialize, or watch curling and have dinner for $10.

Anyone interested in the bonspiel or curling in general can call Susan at 250-672-5334 or Audrey at 250-672-9217.
