The 2013-2014 Curling season will begin in October and now is the time to join the Tartan. There are leagues for new and returning curlers. If you interested in curling on either a temporary or full-time basis there is plenty of time to join Feel free to contact us! We will add you to our Spares list or connect you with a team that might be looking for you!
* Due to technical issues, we are unable to offer Glow Curling for the 2013-2014 curling season. We can still provide ice rentals for family games, bonspiels, mini-spiels, work parties, etc.

|Jones Team heads off to Langley BC|
|The Jones team captured the 2014 Optimist Clubs of Saskatchewan Provincial Juvenile Women's Championship in Carlyle and will be representing our province at the Optimist International Under 18 Championship at Langley BC. This event includes teams from Canada, the United States and Japan and will give these fine young curlers a chance to play (and win) against some of the best young teams in the world. |
The Tartan will be holding a send off for them at the Tartan on Sunday, March 30 at 3:00 PM. We invite you to come out and show your support for our team. They may be Team Saskatchewan now but they come from the Tartan and have worked very hard with their coach Clint Krismer. They are wonderful examples of the talent and dedication here.

|Bonspiels at the Tartan|
|We've had a pretty exciting March. On the 14th and 15th we had the Mechanical Contractors' Bonspiel with some fine curling and even more incredible costumes. On the 21st, 22nd and 23rd we have enjoyed having the 56th annual SaskPower and SaskEnergy Bonspiel which included the Provincial Wheelchair Curling Champions, the Darwin Bender rink. And on the younger side we have been hosting the Grade Six Bonspiel with young curlers from all over the city participating. Congratulations to Danita Zacharias for her good work organizing it. Coming up we have the Blue Goose Bonspiel and Chris Krasowski's 24 hour spiel.|
|As you've probably noticed the Tartan is an older building and lacks some of the features modern public buildings offer. Among these are washrooms accessible to all people. I was bemoaning this one day to Bob Bymoen, the president, and Roseann Strelezki, the treasurer, of our neighbour the SGEU because I knew I had some people coming in for whom the lack of accessibility was a real impediment to their participation in an event at the rink. Immediately they said they would see what they could do and a little while later I received a call saying we could have access to their building during our event. Shane Osberg, their director of Disability Management Services arranged everything for us and made the event that much better because more people could participate. A big thank you for their kindness.|
