Quesnel Curling Club ready to rock a new season

The 2022-2023 season starts on Oct. 11

The Quesnel Curling Club is looking forward to returning to normal operating conditions.

A new curling season will begin Tuesday, Oct. 11.

“It’s been a long two years,” said Quesnel Curling Centre manager Dave Plant. “It really has.”

During the past two years, a number of changing rules and restrictions were in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including all curlers required to provide proof of vaccination.

This season those rules will no longer be in place.

“Our club is wide open again,” Plant said.

An open house and introductory curling clinic was held Tuesday, Oct. 4, with another scheduled to take place Thursday, Oct. 6, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Plant encourages anyone wanting to try the sport to bring a clean pair of shoes.

Interest so far has been off to an encouraging start, with the club’s elementary school program filling up in three days.

“It feels like everybody is ready to move on,” Plant said.

A 12-week program for junior curlers ages 7-18 starts on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
