Dundalk, Markdale and Flesherton schools taking part in provincial curling championships


Dundalk, Markdale and Flesherton curling

Young curlers from South Grey and surrounding areas will travel to Carleton Place Curling Club to take part in the Pinty’s Provincial Elementary School Curling Championships April 5-8. 

The curling event, now in it’s 31st year, will welcome 64 teams from across Ontario including teams from Beavercrest Community School in Markdale, Dundalk & Proton Community School, and Highpoint Community School in Dundalk, and Macphail Memorial Elementary School in Flesherton. Curlers from Arran-Tara Elementary School and Owen Sound’s Hillcrest Elementary School will also “hurry-hard” at the Carleton Place Curling Club, with some schools sending as many as three teams.

Each group will have the opportunity to play three games and based on wins or loses will have the chance to play five to six games until one team is crowned victor of the four day bonspiel. 

“Everybody starts at the same level,” said Rae Ann Brunton of the Carleton Place Curling Club, adding that on the second day of competition there will be an opening ceremony and and a pizza party and dance for the competitors to get to know the other teams. 

In 2017 the Provincial Elementary School Curling Championships were held at the Chesley Curling Club.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
