Parade in Port Elgin


By Fred Wallace


Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".

If you're any kind of a curler, or curling fan, the Port Elgin Curling Club is the place to be these days.

Tonight, it's Week 3 of the Brokerlink Insurance Grey Bruce Major Curling League.

Going into to this evening's matches, only the Wade Walsh rink has a perfect mark of 2 & 0.

Two other rinks; Shawn Smailes & Al Hutchinson, are 1 & 0, but the remainder of the field have all tasted defeat

Of note, the Walsh rink faces Steve Gregg in 1 of 4 matches set for this evening starting at 9.

Tomorrow night, the annual Port Elgin SuperSpiel commences essentially with the Sponsors' Night Social at the club.

The competition at SuperSpiel begins Friday morning and runs late into Sunday afternoon with a large purse available to those competing.

SuperSpiel remains an integral part of both the operation of the Port Elgin Curling Club and the sporting fabric of Saugeen Shores.

It's a major community event, it's a fundraiser for the club, it's a primer for the competitive curlers and it represents a long and ongoing history of curling in Port Elgin.

That's why the Port Elgin Curling Club tonight through late Sunday afternoon is the place to be.

I'm Fred Wallace
