Rock Stars of the Chester Curling Club

National and Provincial Rock Stars of the Chester Curling Club. 

Well Folks it was quite an amazing week for the Chester Curling Club curlers. We had a lot of proud moments on the podium.

Congratulations goes out to our Junior stars who represented at the NS U13 provincial championship in Sydney this weekend.  Team Jollymore, (Odin Jollymore, Callum Bates, Lucas Corkum, Reese Molloy and Charlie Creaser) captured the provincial championship title.  They met Team Pembleton,  (Emily Pembleton, Hilary Richardson, Sophie Canning, and Violet Spartinelli) in an exciting final.   Both teams had a 4-1 record heading into the finals.  Jollymore scored a single in the first end, Pembleton answering with 3 in the second. Jollymore scored a huge 4 in the 3rd and made a big double takeout in the final end to secure the win. 

On our National Stage at the U18 Canadian Championship 4 teams from Nova Scotia made an amazing showing, all making it into the playoffs.  Congratulations to Team Blades, Bronze medalists, Sophie Blades, Kate Wissent, Stephanie Atherton and Alexis Cluney. Well done! We look forward to cheering for you at your next event, the Canada Winter Games.  Go Team Blades!  

We also are proud of the Lunenburg/Queens Special Olympic Curling Team who captured Gold at their provincial championships.  They are anxiously waiting for news to see if they will have the opportunity to attend the National event next season. We hope you do!

Amazing job to the coaches, parents and volunteers, your support is priceless!

We were very happy to hold the Snowball since 2019, the 40th year of the event. Team “Tay Tay” captured the trophy.  Congratulations to Taylour Stevens, Graeme Weagle, Megan Brown and Austin McNeil.  We thank Taylour Stevens, Adam Cocks, Graeme Weagle and Kate Callaghan for organizing the event, a great time was had by all and we can’t wait for next year. It was wonderful to see so many new faces.
