Curling season begins Nov. 13

News and a bit of history of the Boundary District Curling CLub in Midway.

Submitted

The Boundary District Curling Club, built in Midway in 1956, has had a large impact on the lives of many Midway, Rock Creek, Christian Valley and Greenwood residents throughout the years. During this time, the club has been open to all, and is now completely run by volunteers.

Over the years the club has been able to run youth curling, men’s, women’s and mixed curling, as well as running several bonspiels every year. To start the season off the club runs a one-day Fun Spiel, originally known as the George Bubar Spiel before Christmas.

In early March the club hosts a very successful threeday men’s bonspiel which attracts teams form Kelowna, Princeton, Osoyoos, Grand Forks, Rossland, Castlegar and more, as well as bringing in many curling fans to watch and join in the festivities! The club also likes to make time for the schools to introduce Curling to the youth through their physical education programs.

While in the curling rink, visitors will notice the advertising display of many local business that proudly support the curling club. Through the local and regional support over the years, the club has been fortunate enough to maintain a strong club and membership.

Unforunately some people leave or move away, but new people move in and join the club, and as a result we continue to operate our two sheet rink with approximately 50 members.

At this time the club has an afternoon fun league on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. open to anyone wishing to learn or just have an afternoon of socializing and curling.

For team curling there is a mixed league on Thursday and/ or Friday nights at 7 p.m., and the club is always open to new teams and curlers.

Due to the installation of a new brine pump by volunteer workers, the season is starting a little late. The club will be commencing its 2014 -2015 season on Nov. 13 through to March 11.

For mixed team curlers please call Lisa Baia at 250-449- 2749. For the afternoon fun league please call Kim Lindseth 250-449-2869.
