The Day of Curling, held on November 3rd, was well attended and by all accounts a resounding success! Forty-five members and 49 visitors came to the Chester Curling Club on a rainy afternoon to try curling for the first time, applaud our latest inductees to the Life Member status (Walter Webber and Paul Flinn) and witness the unveiling of the banner for Team Weagle's win of the U18 Boys Canadian Championship.
A big thank-you goes out to everyone who gave their time and energy to the event...Dan Sutherland for pulling it all together, Carla Stevens, Brenda Sinclair, Anne Sutherland and Joanne Hare for food prep, Jeff Lamb and John Sheppard as MC's, Morven McLaughlin and Danette Gray on the treasurer/membership desk, Holly Keillor and Elizabeth Baker for registration/snack set-up, our ice maintenance crew Terry Atherton, Ken Johnston and Darrin Hatt, our bartenders Dean Durnford, Kim Croft and David Campbell and the members who helped instruct new curlers- Jim Mason, Tammy Rent, Renata Graham, Owen Purcell and the Weagle boys-Scott, Graeme and Craig.
Without the hard work and committment given by so many volunteers, events like this would not be possible!
The first adult bonspiel on our Club's calendar this year is the Ladies Gingerbread Spiel which will be held on Saturday, November 17th. We'll be hosting ladies from all over the province for this fun-filled curling event and also showcasing our Club and our hospitality.
The day will consist of 3 six end games beginning at 8:30am. A buffet breakfast and lunch will be provided to keep all curlers well nourished. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams (amounts will depend on the total number of teams entered).

Curling is a fun, affordable and social activity perfect for all ages. If you haven't tried curling before (or want to brush up on your skills), our adult Learn to Curl program is a great place to start! It's an easy way to keep fit, make new friends and have a good time...
