The Crowsnest Curling Club is kicking off their new season.

Club President Gary Sigsworth says this year will look slightly different than previous ones.

“We have some pretty serious Covid restrictions in place. When you enter the building, you have to wear a mask and continue to wear one until on the ice. It will then be optional when on the ice. We have a group of three ladies who have done an awesome job with the Covid documentation to allow us to continue curling. We submitted them to the municipality and to Curling Alberta and both were pretty happy with them.”

Sigsworth says they are hopeful to have a couple of bonspiels this year and says there is one officially on the docket so far.

“We are hoping to have a couple of bonspiels. We're not sure yet if they will go ahead. It's really going to depend on what the municipality and Curling Alberta have to say about travel. A couple of the bonspiels we have are typically mostly local. We do have one Curling Alberta qualifying bonspiel. It's mixed doubles and will take place in January. They just opened registration for it. Everything this year is going to depend on the government and Curling Alberta. We've been pretty lucky with Curling Alberta. They like us, which is nice.”

All regular leagues will also be beginning shortly.

We're going ahead with our regular leagues. The seniors will be Monday and Thursday at 1:00pm. We have our open league, which can have four players of men, women or mixed and then we have the mixed league as well. The open league starts on Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:30pm and the mixed league is on Thursday nights at 7:00pm and begins on October 29th.”

Sigsworth says teams can either pre-register or show up to the first night of each league.

"We have an online registration app that people can use. They can also drop-in or provide information via email or phone. If people would prefer they can pay by e-transfer, cash or cheque.

According to Sigsworth, the rate system will be the same as last year.

"This is the second year that for our registration fee, you can curl in any league that you want. Seniors fees are $125 plus GST, regular members is $150 plus GST and that's a pretty good bargain for any curling."
