In early December, the Boundary District Curling Rink season was brought to an abrupt halt when the ice melted after the ice plant that had served the club since 1956 rusted so badly it began to leak. Club members voted unanimously to save the curling rink as well as what remains in the 2015 season.
Equipment was located in Grand Forks that was virtually new. The rink there had stored it because it was too small to cool their four sheets, but it would be perfect for the two sheets in Midway. The Heritage Credit Union came through with a cheque for $2,500 from their Community Investment Fund to help cover the costs. Credit union director Darla Ashton presented the cheque last week at the West Boundary branch in Greenwood.
The new equipment and electrical upgrades brings the Boundary District Curling Club up to date with an environmentally-friendly ice plant in Midway.
