AGM this Wednesday, April 17 at 7 pm

Spring has sprung!  The curling season is already a distant memory and the ice is now a sad puddle, but all members are invited to our

Kaslo Curling Club AGM this Wednesday at 7 pm at the club.

Dean, Kellie, Dan, and Lana admire the WWND Cup.

It’s time to work off all that good Christmas food!

  • Afternoon curling starts Tuesday, Jan 8 at 1 pm
  • Thursday/Friday League starts Thursday, Jan 3 and the schedule is here.  Normal scoring is in effect.
  • Next equipment order deadline is Friday, January 11 (last one of the season).
  • The 5-rock Free Guard Zone (FGZ) is now in effect, replacing the 4-rock FGZ.  Opponent guards cannot be removed from play until the 6th rock of the end (formerly the 5th rock).
  • The Kaslo Open Bonspiel (Jan 25-27) is FULL and we’re welcoming 9 out of town teams this year.  The entry list is here.  Email kaslocurling@gmail.com if you want to be added to the spares list.
Pennywise celebrates their first point.

Karma, John and Rita celebrate the tie!

And (drum roll) the big news from just before Xmas break:

Congratulations to the Pennywise team for winning their first point!!!! Apparently the secret was to wear party hats. The other team wore kilts, so who knows what actually happened over there.  But it’s great to see their hard work and enthusiasm start to pay off.

Good curling, everyone!

News Flashes…. and Hits!

KasloBonspiel2019

Kaslo Open Bonspiel is Jan 25 – 27, 2019

  • Congratulations to Kaslo Curling Club members Al Barclay, Rosanne Benko, Colin Jacobs, and Laureen Jacobs (along with Colin’s brother and sister-in-law from Nelson) who had a successful outing at the Doug Bothamley Memorial Open Cash Spiel in Nelson this past weekend.  They finished 3-2, tied for 7th out of 20 teams, and won $750.  Good curling!!!
  • Our Kaslo Open Bonspiel is Jan 25 – 27, 2019.  We put up the poster less than 2 weeks ago and we already have 15 of a maximum 16 teams registered, with 8 from out of town.  Email kaslocurling@gmail.com to enter a team or enter as a single and we’ll see what we can do.  Some of the local skips have reserved a spot but don’t have full teams yet, so you can also contact one of those skips if you want to sign on with them.
  • The next equipment order deadline is this Friday, Dec 7.  Write your order on the form downstairs, or email kaslocurling@gmail.com.
  • Pennywise came SO CLOSE to winning last week.  Keep it up, we’re rooting for you!
  • Dec 4 is the last Tuesday night practice session for 2018.  We’ll let you know when they start up again in the new year.
