The Blue Mountains Curling Centre will be offering Friday and Saturday curling on a 4 sheet conversion in the Beaver Valley Arena beginning October 19, 2018
The 2018/2019 season will consist of 14 weekends. A great deal of ice time is devoted to encouraging the newcomer / novice to get out and participate. ie: Daily Open Draw Jitney Curling, Curling 101-Clinics, Student programs and Group events. Join us at 7pm for the official Ribbon Cutting.
JITNEY is a local term used to describe an open draw where curlers sign up for a game and teams are selected randomly using a pegboard system. Every Friday and Saturday morning a Jitney draw will be available to all BMCC members and their guests.
CURLING 101: For the month of November, every Saturday will feature a 1 hour introduction to Curling for beginners. This program may be extended through the season depending on demand.
PRACTICE ICE TIME: Sheet 4 will be available for 1 hour practice sessions throughout most of the weekend.
LEAGUE PLAY: League play for traditional teams and mixed doubles will be established and available on Friday and Saturday evenings in accordance with the demand.
KIDS PROGRAM: Ice time has been set aside every Friday through the season.
COMMUNITY GROUPS: A number of 3 hour blocks of time have been set aside throughout the season to accommodate participation by community groups
BONSPIELS: Once established and operational we will look to include a number of single day and weekend Charity Bonspiels with an eye towards a possible week long OCA or CCA sanctioned Event.
MEMBERSHIP: BMCC will offer a single and very affordable Annual Fee of $150.00 plus $20 OCA and CCA dues plus HST for a total of $189.50.
As a weekend only facility BMCC will be affordable for both the new and occasional curler and: the group envisions BMCC acting as a complement to the active Membership of the Curling Clubs in the surrounding region as the BMCC will offer lots of practice time and a chance for an extra game each week.
