Curling club welcomes visitors to Revelstoke

For several years the Revelstoke Curling club has been hosting a Friday night drop-in at the curling rink.

Editor,

In response to Alex Cooper’s article titled Welcome Week aims to bridge gap between newcomers and locals (Dec. 5 issue of the Times Review) and the quote from Powder Magazine that stated in part “half the town looks like it wants to beat the crap out of the other half.”

For several years the Revelstoke Curling club has been hosting a Friday night drop-in at the curling rink. The club provides all necessary equipment and basic instruction to the participants. It is fair to say that virtually all those that partake in a typical drop-in night are visitors to our community, or season employees associated with the resort.

It has been our pleasure to host these individuals from all over the world, to show them another Canadian sport and another side of Revelstoke that is in total opposition to the Powder Magazine quote, and to demonstrate to them that they are welcome to and within the city.
