Weeklong event fun curling spiel. With lots of food and laughter.
The North Bay Granite Club is gearing up for another six months of curling and plans to jumpstart the season with the annual Community Funspiel, sponsored by Joey’s Only Seafood Restaurant. True to the name, this event is for the community to enjoy. Regardless of age, gender, or ability, the only criteria for entry is that you are human and that you have $20 to invest.
Although curling teams are traditionally made up of four players, many will rotate through a larger lineup based on availability throughout the week. This makes the Community Funspiel an ideal event for family, friends, or co-workers to get out and socialize while trying something new. For $80, in addition to an item of $20 value for the prize table, teams will play three six-end games on either Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday/Friday evenings during the week of Oct. 15-19.
Much is planned for after the curling has concluded, so curlers should intend to stick around. Finding enjoyment off the ice is as much about being a curler as what occurs on the slippery surface — therefore, food and entertainment will be provided nightly. Among the highlighted activities will be minnow races presented by Dave Bennett of CTV (Monday/Tuesday), live acoustic music by Gary Davison (Wednesday/Thursday), and a rocking Friday night with Duke Marvelous and company (music starting at 7 p.m). Free lessons will be provided Oct. 9-11 each night from 7 to 8 :30 p.m. and Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. prior to the Funspiel, for those seeking a slight edge over their rookie counterparts.
Registration for one or all of these sessions is open by visiting the Granite Club online (www.nbgcc.ca ) or contacting the office by phone (705-472-6740). Beyond the opening activities, there is an entire season of endless winter fun planned for members of the club and the community. The board of directors presided over by Mary Shannon has been hard at work throughout the summer to make improvements to the club (freshly painted), the ice schedule (maximized play time for all curlers), membership dues (ensuring the most value for your money), and increased visibility (to facilitate growth in every form and level of curling).
For more information, visit us at one of two Open Houses scheduled for early October. The Open Houses are scheduled for Oct. 4 at 6 p.m. and Oct. 13 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to register for desired leagues, lessons, programs and special events. Food and beverages will be provided at the Oct. 4 instalment, which is to be preceded by the fall annual general meeting of members at 5:30 p.m. Embrace the cool weather this fall and venture down to the Granite Club with your clean indoor running shoes and stretchy pants for a classic Canadian pastime.
