For the third year in a row, The Station Neighborhood Pub will be partnering with the Invermere Curling Club to host the Glow in the Dark Curling on Saturday, February 25th.
With a sell-out event last year, they will be bringing in DJ Will C to blast the music under the black lights hoping curlers and spectators in attendance will be dressing bright and tight for an exciting evening of curling and fun.
Its honestly a lot of fun, Will C has some awesome music, the prizes are awesome, some of the costumes people get are really creative, said event organizer Brooke Kelly. Ive heard a few ideas that people have come up with this year so Im really looking forward to seeing what people have to show up with.
This will be the first year that Ms. Kelly is going to be a part of the event, but she said she heard great things from people who attended the event last year as well as the inaugural night two years ago. She said the benefits of the Glow in the Dark curling night offers are that it offers people of all abilities the chance to get out, learn about curling and have some fun.
There will be volunteers from the curling rink there teaching people how to curl properly so if anyone has not had curling experience before, dont feel afraid or intimidated by any means, she said.
If you are interested in signing up for the event with a team, visit The Station Pub to register with your team of four for the price of $20 per person. The cost includes everything that you will need to curl. At 7 p.m., meet at the Station Pub before heading to the Curling Club. There will also be prizes during the night for best dressed and team unity, sponsored by Syndicate Boardshop and Arrowhead Brewery.
Whether or not youre registered to curl, Ms. Kelly said its going to be a great night for everyone to attend.
Its going to be a great night full of locals and people just getting out, learning how to curl and having a few drinks, she said. Its a great social event so I dont think theres any reason not to go.
