This event is termed an "Extravaganza", because most teams are made up of sign-in participants each Saturday, and offers a fun and social time with family and friends. We welcome new curlers to come and give it a try on Saturday mornings from 8:00 to 12:00. Try to arrive by 8:15 so we can get you equipped with sliders etc. Wear warm, loose fitting clothes and clean flat soled shoes. Sneakers are OK.
