Curling club thanks community forest for funding

Funding was provided to refurbish all 48 of Wells Gray Curling Club's rocks by Wells Gray Community Forest

(L-r) Larissa Hadley and Gwen Anderson of Wells Gray Curling Club thank Brent Buck and Abbey Bates of Wells Gray Community Forest for donating $XXX to the club recently.

Wells Gray Curling Club (WGCC) has opened its doors for the 2016-2017 season.

On Oct. 18-21 the club held open houses so curlers and want-to-be curlers could sign up for the season and test out the ice and recently refurbished rocks.

Thanks to the Wells Gray Community Forest 2010 Society, funding was provided to refurbish all 48 rocks. Longtime curlers are looking forward to testing out the “new” rocks for their speed and accuracy.

Regular curling league started Oct. 25. Come out and join in the fun.
