The Fort St. James Curling Club is close to reopening after undergoing months of renovation.

An overflowing toilet caused excessive damage inside the building.

“We are close to finish. It’s running and will be open in just a few weeks. Things are looking really good,” said Fort St. James Curling Club President, Darryl Valk.

Renovations to the club ceiling, the walkway leading upstairs and eventually the kitchen are in the works.

“The bar looks amazing and we are looking forward to opening for the Ladies Bonspiel,” Valk said.

And the club is always in need of volunteers.

“Our club is run on volunteerism and we can always use more volunteers,” Valk said.

The Ladies Curling Bonspiel weekend will kick off on Feb. 10 – 11 as the club celebrates its 41st year in Fort St. James.

Female Curlers from past and present, experienced and not, are invited to take to the ice on Feb. 10 – 11.

Along with a dinner and dance, there will be prizes for best costume along with various raffles and prizes.

Get set for an exciting grand re-opening with a weekend full of strength, determination and some old fashioned curling fun.

If interested in volunteering or signing up for the Ladies Bonspiel, leave a message on the Fort St. James Curling Club Facebook page.

Registration for the Ladies Bonspiel will take place until Feb. 8.
