Team Grady played very well and truly deserve our praise for their skills and team effort.

My thanks to Maurice Landry and Phil O’Regan for assisting me today at the rink and to the parents who were able to be their as spectators — a good day for all.

Mixed Doubles Jamboree Junior Curlers Sat January 13
Junior curlers from the Highlander Curling Club (St. Andrews), Chedabucto Curling Club (Boylston) and Bluenose Curling Club (New Glasgow) gathered at the Highlander CC’s rink on Saturday, January 13, to participate in the Highlander Curling Club Mixed Doubles Jamboree. Under the guidance of Brian Nicholson (Highlander CC), Teagan Lombardo (Chedabucto CC) and Crystal Cameron (Bluenose CC), the junior curlers played games of mixed doubles with only two curlers per team thereby giving the juniors opportunities to apply their curling skills. Nicholson, Lombardo and Cameron are looking forward to more interaction between junior curlers at future events.

With the ongoing renovations being at the stage where we will be slightly later that anticipated getting the building suitable and the ice not being quite ready for curling, the executive decided at last evening’s executive meeting that the junior curling league would commence its season on Saturday, December 9, at 1:00 PM.
We apologize for the delay made necessary due to the tremendous improvements being made at the Club.
Here is a poster for the Juniors.
