Intermediate curling clinics hosted at Marpole CC

Sweeping Clinic

The third and final intermediate clinic at Marpole CC on Saturday, Jan. 13 focused on sweeping. These folks are trying to get more weight on the broom head. The clinics were headed by Curl BC coaching course conductor Chris Summers, assisted by other coaches on each sheet. The first two clinics focused on delivery of the rock.


Learn-to-curl programs and novice league growing

We've had a steady increase in new curlers coming in the door this season, signing up for our learn-to-curl clinics and carrying on in our Sunday Novice League. Both programs run for five weeks at a time. They started up again after the Christmas break and more will be going again in February. 


Successful food drive for the 2023 holiday season

With the generosity of Marpole Curling Club members, we collected 158 kilograms (350 pounds) of food in December. The donations went to the Marpole Community Food Hub.  Thanks to the TESAC League for leading this effort.
