The Vancouver Curling Club is turning 100 this year, but instead of leaving a comment on their Facebook page, how about you drop by and visit for a change. My family and I decided to do just that recently, and in all honestly, I spent most of that time having my mind changed about a pretty amazing game.
The Vancouver Curling club got their start in the basement of the Denman arena and over the years have occupied several homes in the city before landing quite comfortably in the Hillcrest Centre, the legacy curling facility from the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games. There’s a lot of curling history there and a lot of Vancouver history also.
If you think you’d like to check out the Vancouver Curling Club and learn more about this great game they are holding another open house as part of Sports Day in Canada this Saturday September 29th, from 1 to 4 pm at the Hillcrest Community Centre. There are even more celebrations planned for the weekend of October 12th to 14th when the club officially celebrates it’s centennial. More information can be found here.
