Broughton Curling Club might end season by mid-December

Port McNeill club weighing options and turnout on a week by week basis

After starting curling season in early November, the Broughton Curling Club is likely going to have shut down by mid-December due to the second wave of COVID-19.

“We started out close to the number [of players] we felt we needed to cover our costs, but with the second wave scare we lost a few bodies,” said president Clint Fiske. “We were having a decent turnout for Thursday afternoon curling and one mixed team was travelling from Port Hardy. It’s too bad because we bought a new scraper in the spring and our ice has been great.”

He added the Broughton Curling Club is currently weighing their options and will see what the turnout continues to look like week by week.
