Ponoka super curling league kicks off new season

The Agro Ponoka/Ponoka Ford Super Curling League opened its season Nov. 3 with six games. The 12 rinks play a skins format, with $80 up for grabs through the first five weeks of competition.

Defending league champions G & T Custom Farming got off to a rough start, earning only $14 against Agro Ponoka, which picked up the remaining $66.

Steve Pederson picked up $50 in a match with Ponoka Ford, Martin Sherrer dominated his game with Lionel Baron by earning 72 of the $80, Stan Baliant picked up $54 in his game against Kevin Broderson, Clayton Morrow took all $80 from Dwight Dufva, and Holly Riske won 54 of the $80 up for grabs in her match with John Olson.

The next draw in the Agro Ponoka/Ponoka Ford Super Curling League goes Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex.

Kids Learn To Curl program underway

Sessions take place November through February from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and are open to kids eight to 18 years of age.

The cost is $50 and all youths need to bring along is a change of shoes — brooms and sliders will be provided by the club.

Call Barry at 403-783-7410 to register.
