FAB 55+ curling league proves popular

Ladies gather Monday afternoon at Comox Valley Curling Centre

The Comox Valley Curling Club introduced a new league for the  2013-14 season targeting ladies 55 and over – the FAB 55+ Ladies Monday Afternoon Curling League.

The league was slated to run October until Christmas at which time it was thought that ‘snowbird’ fever would kick in and the ladies would flock south.  But, such was not the case, and a second session was demanded and started January and is continuing until March.

Why is the league so popular? Well, the format strays from traditional curling playing and scoring formats and focuses on fun! There are no teams of choice as each week the team has a new composition of players, the games are only six ends, and the playing format and scoring is continuously changing;  some weeks no take outs allowed, and other weeks if you wear the right colour you could earn additional points.

This format has kept the curling about the individual curler’s effort and less about the end score and winning or losing. The result is FABulous and fun. If you would like more information about the FAB 55+ league contact the Comox Valley Curling Centre at 250-334-4712 or info@comoxvalleycurling.com.
