            Looking for a fun activity to help you stay fit and keep active this winter? The Bobcaygeon Curling Club (BCC) invites you to give curling a try—at their open house.

            New curlers can try the sport for the first time using equipment provided by

the club. All you need is comfortable clothing, gloves and clean running shoes.

            The Open House is set for Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 pm at the club behind the fairgrounds grandstand.

            And if you’re afraid you’ll find it too difficult to throw a rock down the ice from that “crouched” position (it’s called “the hack”), don’t worry. The club also provides instruction on “stick curling”—delivering the rock from a standing position with a “delivery stick.”

            Stick curling has become very popular with many members.

            Club members say the BCC is a great place to meet people and make new friends. Novice curlers are introduced to the game in a safe, positive environment, and free lessons at the beginning of the season are a part of membership.

            For more information visit BobcaygeonCurlingClub.ca, or call Geoff Cross at 705-738-6548.
