An Invitation to Senior Curlers

The curlers of Stroud CC in Ontario want to extend an invitation to fellow senior curlers worldwide to join them for a week of curling and fellowship. Curlers may enter on an individual basis and are welcome regardless of their curling experience and ability. This is not a competition but a chance to share in the joy of curling.

They are looking for twenty curlers to come to their community October 31 - November 7, and the invitation extends to non-curlers who wish to accompany their spouse or partner. Curlers must be 50 years of age or older.

All participants would be responsible for their own travel costs to Canada but to help offset some of the expenses of this experience club members will provide home-stay hosting and evening meals hosted by league members. A registration fee of $150 (Cdn) will be charged per person. Registration includes a banquet ticket, five breakfasts, four lunches, tours and local transportation. Transportation will also be provided to and from the airport. The closest international airport is Toronto Pearson.

And I would think that this would be a week to remember! You can find more details in a download file from the bottom of this page, and that includes the contact details for organiser Sherry Armstrong.
