|You already know the Didsbury Farm and Ranch Spiel is this week, but you know, there's more curling fun you can become involved in. League play, as well as bonspiels, provide residents with a good opportunity to have fun and meet new people.|
For instance, there's Fun Friday, a free program that runs from 7-9 pm on the first Friday of every month and any Friday there is a Colts hockey game (unless there is a bonspiel going on). To join in on that, contact Kim Rauhala 403-335-5952 (text or call).
NOTE: If no one shows up by 7:30 pm, the rink closes.
There are sliders and brooms that can be used if you don't have your own. You just need clean footwear.
