Young curler appreciates CVRD upgrade approval for club

Dear editor,

I am writing this letter in support of the Comox Valley Regional District’s alternate approval process to upgrade the “ice out” area of the Comox Valley Curling Club.

I have been a member of the Curling Club since 2010 and did not realize when I first showed up to try junior curling that it would change my life the way it has. Right away I very much enjoyed the sport and started competing in bonspiels up and down the Island. This past season I reached my goal of competing at BC Winter Games, which was an amazing experience, as well as traveling to Junior Provincials.

I have made friends from teams all over the province and I spend about four to five days a week at the rink playing and practising with the many people I have gotten to know right here.

This past season, I have also been volunteering twice a week helping and learning to prepare the ice as well as teaching the younger kids about curling. To say that the curling club is my second home is an understatement, but there is no place I’d rather be.

I have grown up there and believe it is a great place for other kids to spend their time in the future.
