Convenor – John Carere
Wednesday Night Regular Men
This Men’s League plays every Wednesday alternating between 6:50 and 9:10 pm. The goal of the Wednesday night men’s league is to provide the best balance of competition, growth, and fellowship in a men’s only league. Members apply on an individual basis and are then placed on a team using a ‘blind draw’ by the skips at the start of each draw. Players are assigned a playing position (lead, 2nd, vice or skip) based on their skill level and indicated preference. Some player re-positioning may be necessary in order to complete teams for each draw. This proven method enhances the social nature of the sport while structuring teams having similar skill levels for spirited play. The league welcomes those curlers who cannot commit to every Wednesday evening to sign up for the spare list.
