Broughton Curling Club needs members to open

The Broughton Curling Club in Port McNeill is looking for new members so they can open their doors for 2017 season.

The Broughton Curling Club in Port McNeill is in need of new members so they can open up for the 2017 season.

“Our numbers were fairly low last year, we had roughly around 50 members, so it didn’t really warrant opening up for a full season. This year we’re striving to do another half season starting the first week of January,” said Broughton Curling Club President, Mike Balcke.

“We had an informal meeting a couple weeks ago and we challenged everybody to go out and find new members. We’re hoping to get more people involved this year and that they bring some friends out,” said club member Clint Fiske.

Balcke added that they “want to try to give everybody at least 10 games of league play this year,” and that so far they have three bonspiels planned for 2017.

“We have a men’s and ladies’ bonspiel on the same weekend around the middle of January, and a mixed bonspiel around the middle of February.”

The Broughton Curling Club also has an annual general meeting coming up on Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. at their curling rink. Anyone who is interested in curling this upcoming year in Port McNeill, please contact Michelle at 250-949-0144 to register to play
