How green is our grass? The grass is always greener on the other side.
When do we start playing? The powers that be have decreed : Not before June 3rd, 2015.
All good things must come to an end. And the curling season ends this weekend for most curlers. Remember we do have the Last Kick.
Everyone is welcome to come and watch the finals and cheer on their favourites. (forget the Leafs)
