Following 32 seasons of curling out of the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club, and based on declining membership, the Tues/Thurs Senior Mixed Curling League made a difficult decision to dissolve their operation.
Founded August 20, 1985 with support from grants provided by the New Horizons Program, the League peaked in the 1995-96 season with 143 curlers and ended its operation with an average 12 members per quarter. In addition to curling, the League offered golf outings, dinner theatres and other social activities until approximately 2008.
On a more positive note a number of the members will continue to get their "curling fix" and social interaction by joining the Tuesday CFB Mixed League.
The demise of the Senior Mixed league, and slight modification to the draw time for CFB, will allow additional ice times for the very popular Stick Leagues.
Many thanks to the Senior Mixed for their long time support of our great facility.
