Little Rock Jamboree

100th anniversary jamboree - Bathurst Curling Club Jan. 16 to 18, 2009.

The Bathurst Curling Club is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2009,
and as part of our year-long celebrations we will be hosting a tournament
for curlers 13 years of age and under this January.

The tournament will take place from Jan. 16 to 18, and will be open
to the first 30 teams to register.

The tournament will be broken down into three categories:

A division for those eight an under - games will be played on a half
sheet of ice.

A division for players 11 and under - games will be played on a full
shoot of ice.

A division for players 13 and under - each team in this division is
allowed one 14 year old on the team.

Teams can be all male, all female or mixed, and ages are based on
the curlers age as of Dec. 31, 2008. Should there not be a minimum
of four teams in each category, the curlers in that age group will
move up to play in the next age group.

Each team will be guaranteed four, four-end games during the weekend
and the emphasis will be on friendly competition amongst the participants.

Every team will have one game on Friday evening (the first draw is
at 5:30 p.m.), two on Saturday and one on Sunday (curling should be
finished by 4:30 p.m.). Where possible, teams closest to Bathurst
will play in the first draw on Friday and last draw on Sunday.

The cost to play is $80 per team, and provincial competition cards
are not necessary for this event. The weekend will include a meal
for all participants on Saturday, and a sponsor is currently being
sought so that all curlers (we hope) will receive a t-shirt.

The deadline to register is Jan. 9 at 5 p.m. Registration forms,
including check made payable to the Bathurst Curling Club, can be
sent to:

Little Rock Jamboree

Bathurst, NB E2A 4W9.

We look forward to seeing you on the ice as part of our 100th
anniversary celebrations!
