50/50 tickets now available for Chedabucto CC….

The 50/50 tickets are now available at the Chedabucto Curling Club.  We still have the concluding stage of the renovation to complete: The ice shed’s siding and its insulation are planned to be done this year therefore those funds need to be found.

As I have persuaded my brother, Robert, in Bible Hill, he gives me some money and I buy tickets in his name. (Robert won the February 3, 2018, draw.) If you wish to have me enter your name (tickets) into the draws, let me know and I’ll submit tickets as per your instructions.

All assistance to sell/buy will be appreciated.

Best regards,


Chedabucto CC Junior Curling Program Registration Update…..

WOW — The last-Thursday registration for the Chedabucto Curling Club Junior Curling Program was better than we had anticipated. We were a tad later in this season than we preferred to have had our Junior Curling Program registration but it was worth it.

For the first time EVER at the CCC, there is now a Little Rockers (ages 6 – 9 years) branch of the Juniors Program with a registered enrollment of 16 youngsters. Charla Cosgrove is the Little Rockers head coach with assistance from Gary Neufeld for the Mondays, 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM, sessions.

The registration in the regular Juniors (ages 10 years and older) was 10 youngsters with several more still out there as possible Junior members. Paul Long is the Juniors Head Coach, with assistance to both levels from Chedabucto CC members. The Juniors will have their coaching sessions on Wednesdays, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM.

There is also our Junior Girls Team with coach Alicia Mills; a group of curlers for whom we are very proud. They will be training on Tuesdays, after school.

All together we have — thus far — 26 members in the Junior Curling Program plus the competitive girls team; a very impressive reality for our rural Nova Scotia curling club.

My sincere thanks to ALL for enabling the Chedabucto Curling Club Junior Curling Program to reach such success.

Best wishes and Good Curling.


“Piggy” is back at Chedabucto CC…..

By popular demand “Piggy” is back. Started several years ago — as a volunteer contribution — when a curler’s rock does not make it pass the far hog line and that stone dies, that rock’s shooter is asked to pay a buck to “Piggy. This volunteer, fun activity generates approximately $50 per year and pays towards one month’s telephone bill on behalf of the Club.

Piggy will be resting on the bar’s counter where it can be fed by those of us who are occasionally a tad weak with our weights. 🙂

Good curling.
