Burntwood Curling Club
There has been an active curling club in Thompson, since the beginning of Thompson itself. It started in several forms, more notably as a "2 sheeter" of natural ice situated in an old corrugated steel building (with no insulation), built by dedicated curlers who just had to have a place to curl. The club in its present form is a reasonbly modern building built in 1978. It is a "6 sheeter" that is attached to the Thompson Regional Community Centre. The club plays host to many events throughout the season and makes a great choice for all age and activity levels. The club is open for schools at no charge to promote exercise in our youth and has free time slots that anyone can take advantage of to play the game. In addition to Men's, Ladies and Mixed leagues the club also runs Junior and Little Rock programs at a nominal fee. If you are looking to get active and have a great time we would love to have you join us on the ice or in the lounge. Curling is a great way to meet with old friends and make new ones. Whether you are competitive or just like to have fun, it's all just a stones throw away.
Simply stated without the support of our sponsors and the dedicated work of our volunteers the Burntwood Curling Club would not exist. We truely value your contribution not only to the sport of curling but to our community as a whole. Working with people, clubs and businesses in the community has proven a great way to network and make new friends. If you are interested in donating a prize to a bonspiel or volunteering for an event we would love to hear from you. For more information or to volunteer please contact Grant Brown at 204-679-1367
