“It gives us the authority to go out and talk to partners,’’ Tyler Harris, president of the club, told The Guardian on Friday. “Ultimately, this was the logical and rational outcome.’’
The decision brings an end to more than a century of curling at the building on Euston Street.
Harris said the general consensus among the membership and the board is that upgrades would be too costly.
As for the future of the curling club, the president said there are a few options being looked at.
Discussions are taking place with the City of Charlottetown which is in the process of drawing up preliminary plans for a new Simmons Sports Centre.
Harris said they’ve also talked to the Town of Stratford about being included in the plans for the new recreation and education complex.
He also wouldn’t rule out renovating the building that used to be home to the Belvedere Curling Club, which is attached to the Belvedere Golf Club’s pro shop
