The Opening Bonspiel has been running all week, and this evening will see the finals of this event. (In fact, this is the third bonspiel in the last couple of weeks – the Meaford Curling Club is an active one.)
Meaford’s Curling Club is almost as old as Meaford itself. Begun in 1876, it’s now in its 135th year. Today, it’s based in a modern facility on Collingwood Street featuring state-of-the-art rinks, and a great group of folks who compete and socialize in equal measure.
As the club points out, curling is a great way to make new friends; it’s as gentle or as strenuous a workout as you want to make it; it’s stimulating both mentally and physically, and social and competitive events make it more than mere exercise.
In addition to the ice, the club features a 1,500 square-foot lounge, bar and kitchen facilities, and a lower-level meeting room.
