The Humboldt Curling Club would like to welcome newcomers to our community. If you are interested in curling, please contact the curling rink to join a league or to get more information about our programs. People who are 50 years of age or older are extended a special invitation to join the Senior Section of our club. Seniors curl during the day from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm or from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can choose either or both days - or if you don't want to commit to a league - we need spares! If you have never curled and would like to learn, we have people who would only be too happy to help you get started. Using a throw-stick is now an integral part of curling and many who can no longer throw from the hack are having a lot of fun and success using such a stick. You are welcome to come and give it a try. Our members are just out for the fun and exercise - and our fees are very reasonable.
