Montague Curling Club looks to recruit Snowbirds (Eastern Graphic)

Larry Richards, Manager of the Montague Curling Club, is looking to welcome stranded Snowbirds this winter.

The club boasted a membership of 132 last season and Mr Richards hopes seasonal residents who typically spend their winters south of the border will take advantage of this activity in 2020/21.

“We’d like to start afternoon curling. A golfer’s league or ‘Snowbird’ league,” he said.

Brian Harding, President of the Brudenell Golf Association, sees venues like the curling club as a way to get everyone out of their homes this winter for a bit of safe, physical activity.

The association is also reaching out through its newsletter for folks to give the sport a try this winter.

Work on installing the ice will begin this week.
