The Prince Albert Golf and Curling Club’s junior curling program has a busy couple of weeks with the High Noon Optimist junior spiel taking to the ice this weekend and then on Dec. 19 a special clinic will be held.
Team Laycock, the No. 1 ranked men’s curling team in the province, will be the special guests for the clinic. The Laycock foursome, which consists of skip Steven Laycock, third Kirk Muyres, second Colton Flasch and lead Dallan Muyres, will be providing on-ice instruction to young curlers in addition to speaking to the group about their experiences in curling competitions.
Individually, the Laycock team has amassed an impressive resume as among the group there have been six Brier appearances, one Olympic Trial, three world junior competitions and four Canadian junior events. The group will have their Canadian and world curling medals with them so that photographs can be taken with the young curling enthusiasts.
The event, which is being held to promote the sport in Prince Albert, will run from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 with a pizza supper to conclude the festivities.
Before that happens, however, the junior curlers will be vying for titles in three different age classes this weekend. Competitions will be held in under-14, under-17 and under-20 divisions beginning today with the junior spiel set to conclude on Sunday.
