The Dixie Curling Club offers various daytime curling opportunities for men of all skill levels – from beginner to advanced. Participants are assigned to a team based on their curling experience and playing ability. The Day Men’s program offers club league curling on Mondays and/or Friday mornings. The curling season for either league is comprised of four draws and playoffs (approximately 24 games). The Wednesday league is comprised of senior men, who elect to sign up, and compete against visiting teams from other clubs. Curlers are invited to sign up for either Monday, Friday, both or all days. The men host four bonspiels throughout the season – The Gord Glazebrook Memorial in November, The Past Presidents in mid-January, the Bert Bertuzzi Memorial Skins Spiel in early February, and The Apple Blossom two-day spiel in mid March.

This Men’s League plays every Wednesday alternating between 6:50 and 9:10 pm. The goal of the Wednesday night men’s league is to provide the best balance of competition, growth, and fellowship in a men’s only league. Members apply on an individual basis and are then placed on a team using a ‘blind draw’ by the skips at the start of each draw. Players are assigned a playing position (lead, 2nd, vice or skip) based on their skill level and indicated preference. Some player re-positioning may be necessary in order to complete teams for each draw. This proven method enhances the social nature of the sport while structuring teams having similar skill levels for spirited play. The league welcomes those curlers who cannot commit to every Wednesday evening to sign up for the spare list. This league operates with a capacity of 56 curlers plus spares.
