This Sunday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., the Nelson Curling Centre is opening its doors for a fun family/friend day of free curling.

Come on down and find out why curling is such a popular Canadian sport. Everyone is welcome.

Knowing how to curl is not necessary. Instructors will be on hand to assist with learning how to deliver a rock, sweep, or just to provide fun activities for making it fun for everyone from ages two to 82. Equipment is provided so all you need to bring is a clean pair of running shoes. Helmets for ages seven and under are strongly recommended, along with a pair of mitts.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

The off-ice curling game of Rocks and Rings will also be available for younger people to try out.

As the Christmas season is rapidly approaching, the centre is inviting participants to help with the Nelson Food Bank’s annual Christmas food drive by bringing a non-perishable item.
