Calling all Curling athletes!
Melfort will be hosting a curling bonspiel on Saturday, November 9th, 2019. All Special Olympics Curling teams are welcome!
Our bonspiel has been sanctioned by Special Olympics Saskatchewan so your curling athletes can participate in it as a fun event or as a qualifying event for the next Provincial Winter Games. We have extra brooms and sliders if needed for your curling team players.
For anyone not familiar with Melfort, our curling rink has 6 sheets. We also have an on-site restaurant - Mary's kitchen. Our plan is to ask our cook, Mary, to prepare a lunch meal. The cost per team of 4 or 5 athletes and a coach is $50.00. This cost includes our rental fee for the curling ice as well as the lunchtime meal and coffee.
Our plan is to have curlers play 4 end games- possibly 2 in the morning and either 1 or 2 in the afternoon (depending on time). Our tentative start time is 10 a.m.
Our curling program in Melfort starts on Wednesday November 6, 2019. We're hoping to have a number of our athletes come out to curl with us again this year - and hopefully have 3 of our curling teams at our Nov 9th bonspiel.
To enable us to complete our planning - set up draw times, arrange our lunchtime meal etc, please email or phone me by Wednesday October 23rd.
