Curlers in Iroquois Falls have the hammer. It’s up to them to determine whether the Iroquois Falls Curling Club has a season.
Based on the results of an online survey, president Dude Giguère says the names of people taking registrations are posted on the club’s Facebook page.
If enough sign up so that fees can be set in order to cover costs, the ice will be installed.
As the future of the club, Giguère says the most vital group is junior curlers and a change has been proposed for that program.
“That group want to try running it on a Monday after school,” he explains, “as opposed to a Saturday morning.”
A final decision on curling will come at the club’s annual general meeting on Sept. 29.
“If we were in the neighbourhood below 60 people, it would be really tough to run a club,” Giguère estimates. “We’ve probably got to be closer to the 80 members to make a good go at it.”
