After our on ice sessions, we socialize in the lounge with coffee, tea and cookies. As well, some of our members curl at the Hamilton Victoria Club on Thursday afternoon. One member comes from Simcoe where she also curls. We are always looking for new members to join us no previous experience is required. We greatly appreciate the support of the Dundas Granite CC, its board, manager and membership.
On January 17th 2023, we lost one of our beloved curlers, Keith Doyle. Keith curled with our blind curlers for many years, participating in many Provincial and National Championships. Keith was always striving to improve his curling game. Keith has a tremendous sense of humour, never shying away from jabs at his beloved Michigan Wolverines and Boston Bruins. Keith was also involved in the Canadian Council of the Blind (local president) and an active participant in CNIB programs especially enjoying his time at Lake St. Joe.Keith will be missed, but he reamins forever in our hearts and minds.
