NEW GLASGOW – Bluenose Curling Club is hosting an open house week from Oct. 11 to 13 to encourage membership.
On-ice instruction will be available for anyone looking to give curling a try. The club’s registration desk will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., as well as Thursday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m.
Bluenose club and Pulse Pictou County will present a learn-to-curl night and novice league registration on Oct. 11.
Pulse Pictou County is a group that is focused on encouraging young people to work and live in Pictou County.
One way is by promoting local events and providing activities for residents to take part in. The group will be encouraging its members to attend.
It will be youth night on Oct. 12 with information about the club’s Little Rocks and junior curling programs.
The evening of Oct. 13 will encourage club members to bring a friend who is not a member and play an end of curling.
Members are encouraged to bring a friend who is not a member of our club and introduce them to curling and to our club.
Membership director Joe Proudfoot said it’s a challenge to members to grow the club.
“We must always work to attract new members,” he said. “A healthy membership base allows our club to continue to operate a modern and well-kept facility, while keeping membership fees at reasonable levels.”
