– Two eight-end games of curling
– Non-stop gaming, including poker, board games, card games, black jack and a dart tournament
– Top-notch prizes of all sorts and sizes
– Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to keep you going the whole day

Curling Clinic Nov 28

Our next Curling Clinic is coming soon!!

Don’t delay, reserve your spot!!

When: Saturday November 28 6pm-10pm.
Cost: $25.00
This workshop can be taken by anyone interested in: Solidifying your delivery. Improving your line of delivery, sweeping skills,
Communication skills,-calling weight . You will also work on variety of weight and making your shots. Your coach will also go over strategy based on the needs of your group.

Originally this workshop was for leads and seconds only, however, it will be designed for new skips and vices as well, since we are not hosting a clinic just for vices and skips this year.
We will dedicate two sheets of ice for the availability of 16 curlers to be coached on calling line, learning more strategy of the game, communication etc. All aspects of giving and skipping will be covered. (This will be ideal for 1st and 2nd year curlers)

All spots are first come, first serve- based on sign up and paid registration fee.
How to Pay: There is a wood cabinet directly across from the office with a Drop Slot in the top of the cabinet.
Place your 25.00 into a SEALED envelope, with “Curling Clinic” written on the outside and YOUR NAME.
Drop the envelope into the drop box and I will pick it up.
Alternatively, I am at the club on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays curling…plus I coach the Bantam/Juniors on Sundays from 2:45-4:45pm. You can find me before or after my games and coaching to give me your envelope.

There will be no refunds given after November 20, if you sign up and change your mind.

Registration will be done by email to Coach Donna Bantis at spinergy @ sympatico.ca

Confirmation of your acceptance to the clinic will be emailed to you once payment is received.
