Calling all local curlers.
The Cochrane Curling Club will be holding its registration on Aug. 12 at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre.
"It is a very social sport," said Barb Gibson, the Curling Club's managing director, when asked about why the public should join the club. "You will get to meet a lot of other people from all ages 12 to 90-plus depending on the league you join. It is a great way to get out, meet people and get some exercise at the same time. There is no age limit and we have all kinds of alternatives for you to play in daytime leagues and evening leagues."
"It is a great place to come with your friends to enjoy each others company for a few hours at a time and to meet new friends."
Gibson said there are still options open for singles or teams.
"There is some room to either join as a single person to join a team or to place your own team. We have different formats for different leagues. Some leagues put teams together and other leagues you come in with your own team. We have high school leagues, junior curling instruction, a daytime competitive league, daytime senior's league, a sturling league and during the evening we have a ladies league, men's league, mixed league, mixed doubles and open league."
"(Costs) varies depending on the league but curling is one of the least expensive sports to play - it's so affordable and very little equipment is required. A good pair of curling shoes and a broom."
Registration on Aug. 12 will go from 6-9 p.m.
