The Fort Frances Curling Club will host this year’s Northwestern Ontario ladies’ playdowns beginning on Jan. 6.
Our club once again will have a local team to cheer on as the rink of Kathie Jackson, along with Stacy Beacham, Colleen Scrimger, and Charlotte Bazylewski, will be competing at the event.
The other teams that will be here vying for one of two berths to the Ontario Scott Tournament of Hearts are Dawn Sauve (Dryden) and the Thunder Bay rinks of Amy Stachiw, Krista Sharf, Christine Eby, Tara George, Michelle Boland, and Angela Lee.
Opening ceremonies will take on Jan. 6 at 7:45 p.m.
Draws are scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 6, with play on the Friday (Jan. 7) getting underway at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Play will resume on the Saturday (Jan. 8) at 9:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m.
All spectators are welcome. Anyone interested in purchasing window seats, which are going for only $10 each, can call Rick Grenda at the curling club (274-6667).
