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.
