Effective October 1, 2019 Hair brooms can no longer be used for sweeping at the Bluenose Curling Club. Members can still use them to throw their stone but not for sweeping. Similar to the banning of certain synthetic broom heads in competition a year or so ago, hair brooms have been proven to damage the ice surface so we are asking for our members cooperation with this Board decision.
We regret any inconveniance this causes however we are doing this to keep the clubs surface in top shape.

International Curling Event coming to Pictou County: Volunteer Recruitment
The Pictou County Wellness Centre is bringing an international curling event to our area this fall and the Pictou County Curling Clubs have been asked to be part of hosting Nova Scotia’s largest curling event ever. Although we are unable to release the name of the event until a national announcement is made in early March, we are anxious to get started, especially on volunteer recruitment
This event will feature most of the world’s best curlers with 30 mens and womens teams competing on both ice surfaces at the PCWC and it will take place from November 5-10, 2019.
We are very excited to be part of this and we hope that you, as members, are excited as well because we need you to be able to make it happen.
We are looking for 225-250 volunteers in many different areas. Some areas being a curler certainly helps while in others, no curling experience at all matters. We need volunteers for the ice crew, stats, timers scorekeepers, ushers, 50/50 sellers, transportation, etc.
We have multiple time slots available for everyone. These include weekday or weekend morning, afternoon or evening.
Another great reason for getting involved is our club has a chance to benefit financially as well. A portion of some revenue streams is returned to the curling clubs and the more volunteers we have, the greater the return. And to help benefit our club, your friends and family do not even have to be members! All they have to do is identify with our club when they fill out the volunteer application form!
So why not get involved and help grow our sport and our club!
For more information and to volunteer, go to www.pcwellnesscentre.ca, click on the link on the home page and you are ready to go. On line sign up will be available as of Wednesday, February 20th. We are hoping to fill our volunteer base by the end of March so please sign up early!
