Curling 101!

To promote diversity in the sport of curling among the LGBTQIA2S community, Curling Canada is sponsoring this 1 hour “crash course” in curling. This free session is aimed at those without any curling experience and will include 30 minutes of instruction followed by a 30 minute game.

Space is limited to 48 participants so register early!

To register, please visit:

To comply with provincial health regulations, all participants must be fully vaccinated and show proof prior to entry into the curling club.

Proof of Vaccination

As of Monday, October 4, proof of full COVID-19 vaccinations will be required to participate in recreational activities. The Nova Scotia Curling Association (NSCA) has advised the Mayflower Curling Club that they are working with Sport Nova Scotia, Department of Community, Culture and Heritage and the Public Health unit to work out the specifics.

As we begin our curling season, there are going to be numerous questions and requests for clarity. We will continue to communicate with you in as much detail as possible, as more information becomes available to us.

Early End of Season

A message from the Board of Directors:

What a season it’s been! From the entire board of directors, we want to thank all of our members who rolled with the punches this year, with cancelled weeks, new distance protocols at the club, and additional health measures all in the name of slowing the spread of COVID-19.

On Monday, the Mayflower Curling Club announced that the Department of Health will begin renting the curling club April 1st for use as a testing and vaccination center. While this is an amazing opportunity for the club to recoup lost revenue from the year, it means the curling club cease curling starting on Monday, March 15th.

This news means that this Sunday, March 14th (Week 11) with be our FINAL week of curling.

We look forward to what we hope will be a more “normal” 2021-2022 curling season. Please enjoy your summer and remain safe!

2020-2021 Board of Directors

Further Cancellations

Week 8 and 9 games scheduled for January 17th and 24th respectively have been cancelled. Although the Chief Medical Officer has allowed for “scrimmages”, the capacity of the ice shed is limited to 24 players (3 sheets), therefore does not allow for our full league.

On Sunday, the Bluenose Bonspiel organizing committee made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 bonspiel and Canadian Gay Curling Championships.

Although we’re disappointed that our bonspiel has been cancelled two years in a row due to COVID-19, we know that our 2022 bonspiel will be nothing short of amazing. We are happy to announce that Halifax will be host city for the Canadian Gay Curling Championships in 2023!
