The Cloverdale Curling Club is now offering its popular ‘Drop In’ curling on Saturday afternoons throughout the Fall and to the end of the season in April. If you have never curled before and would like to try it, this is the offering for you. Expert instruction is offered by certified Canadian Curling coaches for the first half hour, then the players form teams (or bring their own!) and curl for the next two hours.
All equipment such as brooms, sliders and grippers are supplied if a player has none of their own. Drop In has proven to be very popular also with groups who would like to try the game and with companies looking for a different social experience for their staffs. You’re on the ice at 3:30 p.m. for the clinic, then the game which will take you from 4-6 p.m.
We’ve never seen a participant who didn’t enjoy that first time ever playing one of Canada’s greatest winter sports!
If you plan on attending a few things are a must:
Bring a clean pair of non-street shoes with you to curl. Avoid tight jeans but try stretch material or good sweat pants which give you room to play. A warm jacket is advised but not a big winter coat. Warm and easy to move in is what you want. Dress your upper body in layers. Once you get going you may want to take that jacket off.
If you do have a group of four or more individuals, we suggest you book and pre-pay by calling the curling club office at: 604-574-4483 or email the manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that there will be no Drop In on following dates: Oct. 8 and 19, and Dec. 3 and 10.
And the best new is, Drop In Curling is only $10. For the price of a couple of lattes, you can get some good exercise and finally say to your friends, “Hey, I went curling this weekend!”
