Something new has been added to curling in Canada and the Ponoka Curling Club would like to see if there would be interest in Ponoka to start a Stick Curling league.

All rocks must be delivered with a curling stick standing, sweeping is only allowed from the hog line to the back of the house. Each team is comprised of two curlers, one member at each end of the rink. The throwing curlers alternately deliver six rocks each end while the teammate acts as skip, then the roles are reversed and their partners throw the rocks back. All games are six ends. The three-rock free guard zone rule applies. All rocks have to be released before reaching the hog line and can not go outside the four-foot line. All the good parts of the regular game are retained…especially meeting upstairs after the game. More information is available at and there are leagues in Alberta. For more information contact Barry Neath at 403-783-7410 or Danny Baron at 403-783-5856 or attend the information desk at curling registration on Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.

Sticks are available at the club. Two 83 year old ladies beat two men in their 50s at stick curling and had a lot of fun too.
