Over the past couple of years I’ve been to watch my husband and his team curl at various clubs around town during the MCA Bonspiel, and each one has its own atmosphere and charm. There’s something so comforting and homey about them. From the old school logos to the well-worn ceramic mugs of coffee (according to my brother, “rink coffee” is some of life’s best), I love how stepping into a curling club feels stepping into a time machine, in the best possible way.
My home club is in St. Adolphe, and I’ll be honest: my favourite thing about it is the plastic cup of OV and basket of delicious, salty popcorn (that costs only fifty cents!) that follow a game.
While I’m on the subject of curling, we’ve been watching the new CBC series “Men With Brooms“. It’s pretty funny, and way better than the movie. And it’s filmed at the Fort Rouge Curling Club, which several of my family members swear has the best pizza of any club in town.
Which is your favourite Winnipeg (or Manitoba) curling club, and why?
