The Curling Club of Golden is putting in the ice and preparing for another busy winter of fun on the sheets.

The Curling Club of Golden is putting in the ice and preparing for another busy winter of fun on the sheets. According to new president of the club, Gilles St. Yves, club members have been working hard to get everything ready to go at the club.

Registration will be held on on Oct. 10 and 11 at the curling club from 7-8 p.m.

“Everyone is welcome. We would love to have as many returning and new members as we can get,” St. Yves said.

St. Yves is hopeful to see all players dropping by to try out curling this year.

“We are encouraging people to come on out. It doesn’t matter if you are a part of a team. If you haven’t played we will work with you,” he said.

St. Yves has been a curler since the age of ten.

He explained that he grew up in Saskatchewan where curling is a big deal.

“If you were not a curler in Saskatchewan then there was something wrong with you,” he said.

As for why he thinks curling is a great sport for all kinds of people St. Yves said, “It is a nice social sport. It is different and relaxing for many people.”

He added the sport is also cost friendly for people who are just starting out.

Anyone interested in learning more about the upcoming curling season can drop by the registration night or call St. Yves at 250-344-7457.
