2016 Open Mixed Inlet 'Spiel - only 6 spots left!

With 11 days left to the start of the 2016 'Spiel on November 25, 2016, there are only 6 more spots left for teams to register. Have you signed your team up yet?

Don't miss out on what promises to be a hearty, fun-filled 'Spiel...if the team names are any judge of character and curling abilities. Want to find out who the competition is?  Check out the registered teams here.

Come join the fun.  Sign up now!

Update - November 20, 2016

5 more sleeps until the 2016 Inlet 'Spiel opens on Friday, November 25.  We have four more spots left, so if you've been hemming and hawing about joining, now's the time to commit!  Registration will close Wednesday, November 23, 2016, at 6pm, to give us enough time to make up the draws.

We have a great 'Spiel planned, with a fabulous dinner menu, and a dance to follow.  Even if you're not bonspieling, join the 'spielers for dinner and/or the dance.  Dinner tickets will be on sale in the Curling Lounge for $20 per person, and dance only tickets will be on sale for $7 per person. 

There are also a number of ways to feel the 'Spiel spirit if you're not 'spieling with a team on the ice.  You can try your luck for a prize at our Touchdown Draw to the button (3 tries for $5), or play the Blind Calcutta where you take one guess at who the winner(s) of the 'Spiel might be for $5.  And as is tradition at Port Moody Curling Club, there will be 50-50 draws throughout the day on Saturday, and one 50-50 draw on Friday night around 9:30pm.  So many ways to possibly win without sweeping your guts out....

Join the 'Spiel...you know you wanna.

Another Successful Open House!

Port Moody Curling Club (PMCC) celebrated another successful Open House on September 16, 2016 with lots of members dropping in, signing up for leagues, and catching up over snacks and drinks.  There was even some friendly competition for new league members among the Thursday Mixers and Friday Rocks.  We also had many of the newly minted curlers from the Learn to Curl Clinic earlier in the day join us to ask about our leagues.  Our inaugural Funspiel was a great opportunity for new and returning curlers to get a game or three in before the season starts this week and next.

If you missed the Open House, but still want to curl, every league still has room for teams and/or players.  New and experienced curlers are all welcome! 

In addition, there are new leagues and drop-in/pick up game opportunities in the plans and works.

Watch this space for updates on league openings and news on the new leagues and drop-in/pick-up games.
