My 10 year old son, Reid, has been curling since age 7 and he absolutely loves to curl! He was lucky enough to be chosen as a Future Star at the Brier last year, and got to meet many of the teams, even our favourite, Team Gushue! He was paired with Team Young of Newfoundland and Labrador, which is our home province. It was so very special to us and they spoiled him immensely!
Unfortunately, the Medicine Hat Curling Club sustained major damage over the summer and has been unable to open this year due to requiring extensive repairs. We still don’t know when or if they will be able to reopen. It is devastating for our city and especially for Reid, who is missing his favourite sport. It’s been a tough year but our hearts are hopeful that he will be able to curl again in the fall. After all, he is going to need practice to make it to the Olympics in 2034!
