FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Curling Club will be postponing the Open-spiel that was scheduled for November 2 & 3.
Trudy Mitchell, General Manager of the FSJ Curling Club says registration numbers are low.
“It doesn’t look very promising for our opening-speil, we don’t have any teams signed up”, said Mitchell.
Mitchell feels the delay in the season may have something to do with the low registration numbers for the open-speil.
“Because we had got started late, and people have just put out their fees for the leagues, I can see them not wanting to go and spending more money on a bonspiel as it is still very early in the season”, said Mitchell.
The Fort St. John Open Bonspiel was slated to start November 2 as the club did not receive enough entries to have this type of spiel. The club is thinking about having a fun spiel instead on Saturday Only November 3, with dinner and dance to follow.
Mitchell says the Tour-spiel is happening on November 9, 10 & 11 at the Fort St. John Curling Club, as part of the North-East Curling Tour.
