From the President
The Juan de Fuca Curling Centre Association is a volunteer-run curling centre that plays at the 8-sheet facility at the West Shore Parks and Recreation Centre in Colwood. Although we are on the west shore, we welcome members from all areas of greater Victoria.
2017-18 will be the Juan de Fuca Curling Centre's 42nd season. One of our goals is to grow the game, by offering a number of ways for people to try curling and learn for themselves that it is a fun and challenging sport for all skill levels. It is also a sport that emphasizes socializing as much as competition and one you can play well after you've had to give up on other activities.
LEAGUES LOOKING FOR PLAYERSRichard Rogers, PresidentJDF Curling Centre Association
Although we are almost halfway through the season, we still have some opportunities for curlers to join leagues. The Tim Horton's (Monday Open) League would welcome new curlers starting in the New Year! This league is as wide-open mixed league - it can be all men, all women, 3 women and a man, etc. It does not matter - we have some very good curling in this league, but for the last two years our members have wanted to stay as a non-competitive league and that is what we are! In order to avoid byes, the league would prefer to welcome 2 teams at a time into the league. If you only have a couple of players and need two, someone from the league's group of spares. If you have any questions, please call Marilyn at 250 389-1327. The league is loads of fun and promises cookies and coffee after every game! would step up to the plate and join you or contact the league president, Marilyn Kraeker, who will search out players for you. The 55 Plus league (https://juandefuca.curling-club.ca/leagueInfoPage.php?id=257) plays Tuesdays and Fridays, 930 AM to 1130 AM. It needs more individual curlers, either as spares or full time players. The league makes new teams every 10 games, so is still a lot of opportunity to place full time players. The league currently has 8 teams, but several have only 3 players and could use another full-time player, or more spares to fill them out.
