Special Event: Mokuyokai 6th Annual Curling on Sun, Feb 5th and Sat, March 3rd at Marpole Curling Club

Update Feb 23rd - a few spots remain for the March session!
Update March 3rd: this event is full; thank-you for your interest!
Please join us on the ice and take part in the Mokuyokai 6th Annual Curling Experience!  This year, we'll be curling on two days, Sunday February 5th starting at 2:00 pm, and Saturday March 3rd starting at 1:20 pm (note the different starting times!).  You are welcome to come for one or both days.

There is space for 16 participants each day, and no experience is needed.  This is your chance to try a fun and challenging winter sport that is popular here in Canada. Mokuyokai Board Member, Shaun Krislock, will show us how to curl!

The arena is cold and we stand on ice, so also make sure to dress warm (wool socks, gloves, scarf and hat).
Note that the curling ice is very sensitive to dirt and debris, so all participants must bring and extra pair of clean running shoes to change into after they enter the curling club.

After playing curling for about two hours, we'll be able to relax up in the pub at the curling rink, so plan on staying a bit longer and socializing!

When: Sunday, February 5th starting at 2:00 pm & Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 starting at 1:20 pm
Where: Marpole Curling Club, 8730 Heather St, Vancouver (next to Canadian Tire, walking distance from Canada Line Marine Drive Station).
Reduced Cost: Members: $16 for one day, Non-Members: $18 for one day
(cash payment in full on first day for both) limited to 16 people/day.
RSVP (March Session): by March 1st to
**remember to bring one pair of clean indoor sneakers so we don't make the ice dirty!!
