I have had communications over the past few weeks with representatives from the clubs regarding expected attendance at Curlarama 2021 which was tentatively scheduled for October 22 to 24 in Canmore, While it appeared that participation would be lower than usual, we likely could have proceeded with a somewhat scaled down event. However, given the Government of Alberta’s announcement yesterday of Covid related restrictions on social gatherings, we have decided to cancel the event for the second consecutive year. Hopefully, we will be able to have a Curlarama 2022.
John Hodgson, Gyro Club of Calgary.
On Oct. 22 to Oct. 24 ( Friday to Sunday ) there may be the annual Gyro curling at Canmore. The cost per curler is 295.00 which includes accommodation, curling, smoker with all free booze on Friday night, breakfast Sat. morning, 3 games of 6 end curling on Saturday, banquet Saturday night, and breakfast Sun. morning with presentations. We had 3 teams at last bonspiel and had the likes of Wilson, Malott, Delveaux, Ewanchuk, Austin, Davis, Greig, West, Lanes, Caddey, Hunt, Merrick, and also others other years.
As you can understand in order to run this bonspiel they need a close count on the number of teams so any member with an 80 percent chance of participating can e-mail me at . I think it would be nice to have at least 2 teams from Sherwood Park. I will make up the teams and do some promoting but unfortunately I will not be attending this year due to hip restrictions.
They would like a reply by Monday (Aug 30)so they can make some decisions on proceeding.
