The 20th annual Barry Naimark Charity Skins Bonspiel is on at VCC, Mar. 3-5, with the event raising funds for the St. James Music Academy for inner-city youth. We are now full with 32 teams but still taking a few more registrations for a waiting list.
Saturday Social curling at VCC offers you the chance to curl when you want without having to make a weekly commitment. Novice curlers are welcomed too!
Register online each week by Wednesday night to curl on the following Saturday, either individually or in groups. We'll let you know on Thursday who has signed up to curl on Saturday and set the games up. For more go to our Saturday Social page.
