If you are a senior, junior, man, or woman, there’s a spot for you this season in the Castlegar Curling Club. All groups are getting organized with a few subtle changes. According the local President, Ron Anderson, all groups are returning “…although a Junior group leader has yet to be arranged. The only group that may be down a bit would be the mixed, and the only reason for that is because somany of the couples are within the same age group and have kids involved in hockey.” ¬†Games often conflict with scheduling, especially on weekends.”We have a new plan for mixed, though;” says Ron, “now we are changing the combination of genders in the mixed teams to be whatever the team decides. It doesn’t have to be a certain line-up of men/woman ratio anymore.” He hopes this will help the mixed numbers grow again.An announcement will be coming up in a future edition of The Castlegar News regarding various curling groups and scheduling. In the meantime, you can phone 250-365-6666 to sign up.
