The Sicamous Curling Club is the next stop in Rob Swan’s mission to curl across the nation.

The Harvey Station, N.B. native is attempting to curl 100 games in more than 100 different curling rinks across Canada this curling season. Swan’s long-term goal is to visit and play in every single curling club in Canada in the next five years.

The reason: to share his love for the sport, raising awareness and, in the process, some needed renovation funds for his home rink.

On Friday, Feb. 19, Swan will be curling with the Sicamous Curling Club during an open house from 7 to 11 p.m.

“We are proud to host Rob Swan and his Curling Across the Nation tour as he comes to the Sicamous Curling club to meet the members and play a game,”  say local club members.

Swan’s passion for the game drives him to promote grassroots curling and to bring communities together through the social aspect of the game.

Curling is truly a sport that everyone of all ages and abilities can play and enjoy and the social aspect of the game brings people together, says Swan.

Swan will be using Sicamous as his base during the following week as he visits and plays with other Shuswap curling clubs.

All are welcome to stop by the Sicamous Curling Rink Friday night to visit Swan and see how much fun the game of curling is.
