The Mayflower Day Ladies are not just a group of women who curl, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. They are an eclectic, energetic group with a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
To be a member of the Mayflower Day Ladies is to be part of a very active social scene. We open our season with a luncheon, and we hold several parties and gatherings throughout the year…all involving food, fun and fellowship. The main events are a Hallowe’en party complete with costumes, a Christmas luncheon of wonderful holiday food , Valentines Pot Luck, and St. Patrick’s Day festivities with Irish Coffee . In between we have a bake and book sale in early Dec., a fundraiser for Adsum House around Christmas, and there’s the occasional fashion show and jewellery show. We close our season with presentation of our trophy winners, during our closing agm and luncheon.
Every Tuesday and Thursday morning after curling we retire to our comfortable Meyers Room lounge to enjoy coffee and treats. Each member takes a turn at providing a sweet treat for our coffee socials. It’s a wonderful warm and friendly atmosphere, with a great group of interesting women. Some are new to curling, others have been playing for decades. For the new curlers we have free clinics on a semi-regular basis, where one of our veteran curlers will help you improve your game.
If you are already a member of Mayflower and curl at night, you might consider joining the Day Ladies . You could sign up as a spare, if you don’t want to commit for a specific day. Just think of the fun you’re missing. Come out and give it a try!
