Micro-Works Major Curling League Begins a New Era at the Stroud Curling Club
The Micro-Works Major Curling League opens its 36th curling season in a new home. The Stroud Curling Club in Innisfil Ontario is now the official venue for the Micro-Works Major Curling League...and we could not be happier. The Stroud Curling Club has a long and rich curling history and the league is very excited and honoured that we have become part of their curling family. Negotiatons to move the league began in earnest in the spring of 2012 and culminated with the signing of a multi-year contract on August 18th, 2012, and a new era officially started.
The 2012-2013 season will see several new opportunities which the league is eagerly anticipating. We are now curling Wednesday nights with 2 draws, the first beginning at 6:45 pm and the second at 9:00 pm. The league has expanded its roster to 15 teams to take advantage of the additional ice time available at the Stroud Curling Club. There are a number of new players joining the league enticed by the new location, the new times, but most of all because of the competitive curling spirit the Micro-Works Major Curling League and the Stroud Curling Club bring to the sport of curling.
