Canadian Fire Fighters Curling Championship

The Canadian Fire Fighters Curling Association is the only competition that gathers fire fighters from every province and territory in Canada to compete for a national championship.

Every province and territory has now hosted this event. Last weekend a team from this area with some current and a past Metcalfe Curling Club member on it, won the Southern Ontario title and are on to the Nationals in Mississauga, Ontario from March 24th to April 2nd, 2017.

The 58th Canadian Fire Fighters Curling Championship will use the same format as the Brier and the Scotties.

The team went undefeated over the weekend and beat Dwayne Lowe who has represented Southern Ontario the last 4 years in the final.

Congratulations guys and lot of luck in the Nationals. We are rooting for you.


Fall AGM Meeting

Just a reminder about the Fall AGM Meeting on Tuesday, October 4 from 7 to 10 p.m. in the curling club lounge. Please plan on attending.

Curling Clinic October 22

On Saturday, October 22, the Metcalfe Curling Club will be hosting the annual Curling clinic from 9am to 2pm. 

This is not limited to existing or new members; if you have some friends that wish to try out the sport, this is the clinic to see if they like it.

Curling is a sport for life so young, old or in between, everyone can play and everyone has fun. It’s also a great opportunity for existing players to get comfortable on the ice and improve their skills and review the terms, rules, strategies, etc.

There will be several certified coaches on hand to provide demonstrations and advice. We are restructuring the day a little bit to ensure that everyone has more time on the ice, more rocks to throw and some of the foundation skills are reinforced.

The clinic is free and includes lunch and snacks. If you or your friends are interested, please just let Rob know by emailing him at raken111@gmail.com with the names and phone numbers of those interested in attending.
