CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — The Charlottetown Curling Club is in talks to move its operation to the facilities at the Belvedere Golf Course.
At city council’s annual monthly meeting on Monday, June 14, Coun. Terry Bernard, chairman of council’s standing committee on parks and recreation, said meetings between the two sides are currently taking place.
Bernard said he, personally, has met with representatives of the curling club and feels optimistic at this point that there is traction.

The curling club was put up for sale in March, bringing an end to more than a century of curling at the building on Euston Street.
Belvedere had its own curling club up until things were shut down in the late 1990s.
To bring Belvedere up to speed, a new concrete floor would have to be put down as well as new pipes.
However, Bernard said the talks between Charlottetown Curling Club and Belvedere include demolishing the existing structure on Greensview Drive and building a brand new facility that would include golf and curling.
The project would not involve the city.
