It’s never too late to try.
Southeast Newcomer Services in partnership with the Estevan Curling Club will be hosting the Newcomers Learn to Curl event at the curling rink in Estevan on March 16.
“A lot of newcomers didn’t know what curling was,” said Elaine Popova, information services advisor. “We want to show them what it’s about.”
The event comes about a month after Newcomers and the Estevan Bruins partnered up to host the Learn to Skate event, which turned out to be a smash hit.
The upcoming event is free and the curling club will provide the equipment. Space is limited, however, and a total of 30 people have registered. A waiting list has already been established.
The event starts at 7 p.m. and will run for an hour. Children age six and up are welcome.
Potential future plans involving introductions to sports include a bowling tutorial and an unspecified outdoor sport or activity that Popova said will go well with the warmer weather that is around the corner.
“We’re very lucky to have the Estevan Curling Club with us,” Popova said.” Without them this wouldn’t have been possible.
“The fact that they offered to help means a lot to us, and shows that the community wants newcomers to be welcome here and a part of this community.”
