Dear Mayflower Members:
 
The Board met this evening to make the difficult decision to end the curling season effective Sunday, March 15 at 8:00pm. This decision was made in response to the growing awareness of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and information provided by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, Nova Scotia Curling Association, Sport Nova Scotia and the actions taken by our neighbouring curling facilities.
 
This decision was made to protect our members, guests, and staff.  Members will have an opportunity to collect their gear from the locker room in the coming week. Look for communication on this next week.
 
This will also likely impact the timing of the Annual Meeting, planned for 08 April 2020. Again, we will communicate a new date once more is known.
 
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to a Board member.
 
Philip Churchill, President 
Mayflower Curling Club

Our Mayflower members had many successes again this year at provincials.  We would like to send our congratulations and recognize the accomplishments of those who were victorious this season.

Mayflower Day Ladies Wrap

By: Faith Piccolo

Mayflower Day Ladies had another banner year.  We picked up eleven new members, which brings our number up to 85. But there’s always room for more.

We had a social season filled with festive parties, luncheons, fun and games….and cake.

We started our season with the opening luncheon in September; then there was a Hallowe’en party at the end of October; we celebrated in December with a Christmas luncheon and sing-a-long led by Susan Crooks. We sat around our electronic TV fireplace and had a grand old time.

In March we celebrated St. Patrick, with the wearing of the green, pizza, Irish Coffee, and of course cake.

In between all the social events we found time to curl twice a week, and after our games we lounged in the Myers Room, enjoying coffee/tea, sweets and sometimes nutritional snacks, or whatever was on offer from whoever was on coffee duty. You might detect a theme in our calendar of events…just about every event includes food. Maybe that’s what’s bringing in all those new members.

We also took part in the Metro Bonspiel in November, along with teams from Halifax Curling Club and Dartmouth Curling Club.  We didn’t win the big prizes, but we did make a respectable showing.

Club Information

Founded in 1905, the Mayflower Curling Club is a landmark in Halifax's rich history. In 1912 the ice shed was used as a morgue for victims of the infamous Titanic sinking, and just five years later the club was destroyed in the devastating Halifax explosion. The Mayflower, which houses six sheets of ice for leagues of all levels, is one of the most well-known clubs in Canada. We embrace all levels of curling from beginners to competitive and we hope to see you on the ice soon.
