The Nelson Curling Club is set to begin its 120th year of curling in the Queen City.

Open ice begins Tuesday, and Friday is registration night starting at 6 p.m. Don’t miss out, come down for some practice, a slice of pizza and wash it down with some amber fluid.

Lots of new things are happening down at the curling centre. Try Monday drop in and curl with your friends in a casual format. Or try doubles in the new Monday night league. Doubles is a new game taking off in the curling world, which is shorter and requires fewer people if your time is limited.

Push sticks are available for safe no-sliding curling, if you can’t get down in the traditional slide position. And of course there are usual leagues and bonspiels getting set to go.
