2018 – 2019 Curling Season

We are eagerly anticipating the upcoming curling season and will be continuing with the 3 sheets of curling ice. We look forward to another year of fantastic ice conditions thanks to our incredible ice makers, Brian & Trevor Nociar.  We are hoping to increase our numbers for this season so that we can prove to the CRCA that it is worth their while to remove the remaining hockey boards to give us back 4 sheets of ice.

We will be holding our Curling Registration meeting and AGM at 7:00 PM for all Returning Teams on Tuesday September 11th, 2018. Energizer night is being held on Wednesday September 12th, 2018 between 6:00 –  8:00 PM for all New Teams.

Our season will begin with a Free Adult Curling Clinic for Beginners or as a Refresher on Sunday September 30th from 1-4 PM.  We have room for the first 24 people who register, if you are interested in attending this clinic, please send email to info@chestermerecurling.com to secure your spot.

Our tentative schedule for the upcoming season is October 1st, 2018 till March 29, 2019

Sunday Night Mixed Doubles League

NEW for our 2018/19 season, we are offering a Mixed Doubles League on Sunday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 PM.  If we get more than 7 teams registered, we will add an additional draw on Sunday evening and teams will alternate between the two times.  Each team must consist of a Male and Female player.  Fees will be $235.00/player ($470.00/team) plus all members must have a valid community membership.  You can have up 5 players on the team or utilize the spare list.  If either or both of your players are unable to play you are allowed to utilize two spares but you must keep the mixed format intact.

If there is enough interest in this format, once the draws are finalized for our regular leagues, if there are any leagues that only have an early draw, we can certainly entertain the idea of starting a second Mixed Double League as a late draw on that particular week night.
