We are busy working away in preparation for 2023-24 season registration. We expect to start online registration the 1st week of September. So stay tuned!
Other important dates in September include a Work Party Saturday September 23, and there are still spots open for our Club Coach Course Sept 30-Oct 1.
Finally, this upcoming season is the Campbell River Curling Club's 60th Anniversary! We will be planning celebration events for later in the season and look forward to sharing this milestone with curlers old and new.
For the upcoming season, the Curling Club is looking to create another league on Thursday night at 5:45pm. In the past, this time slot offered an 8-end Ladies League. We have a few options we are considering and will be emailing our Ladies curlers for their input. Watch your inboxes (and maybe your junk folders) for an email from email@example.com.
Enjoy the sun!

The CR Blind Curling team travelled to Winnipeg last week to compete in the Western Canadian Championships. It was a 6 team event which included 2 teams from Edmonton, 1 from Vancouver, 1 from Prince George and 2 from Winnipeg. After a first game loss, CR went on to win the remaining games resulting in a 3 way tie after the round robin. After comparing the point for and against, CR came away with SECOND PLACE! Congratulations to the team of Brad, Jeremy, Arthur, Richard, Kelvin and coach Bruce. The team had the full Winnipeg experience of wind, snow, freezing temps and very good curling.
