Here’s the answer to the question “Will there be a season at the Iroquois Falls Curling Club this year?”
“So the short answer is yes,” says president Dude Giguère
He says the club has commitments from 48 curlers. Even though the target was 60, the season will go ahead.
“We are projecting to lose a little bit of money,” he admits. “But if we can have enough volunteers when it comes to cleaning and ice maintenance, it should help keep our costs reduced.”
Giguère adds that the club might do some fundraising. If COVID-19 restrictions are lifted enough, that could include a bonspiel. He hopes more curlers come out, but notes that you have to be double vaccinated against COVID-19
“We know there’s a couple of them that will be able to curl, maybe not right at the beginning because of the timeline that they need in between their two vaccinations,” he explains, “but we expect to see them before Christmas.”
If there are no hiccups, the plan is to throw the first rock of the season at the beginning of November.
