Congratulations to the 2022 Industrial League Champions, Highland Nissan! See the top three finishers here.
We held the final bonspiel on April 2nd to close out the 2021-22 season. The day’s winning team consisted of Joe L, Jill B. and Dave Q, shown here with Jim MacLean (center) presenting the ‘Jim MacLean Memorial Spiel’ shield. The Western-themed gala was well attended and fun was had by all.
We are the New Caledonian Curling Club, of Pictou, Nova Scotia. We play at the Pictou Curling Centre located along the Pictou waterfront at 66 Celidh Ave.
Our club was founded in 1850 as the Pictou Curling Club, playing outdoors on various ponds around the town. In 1852 the club sought and achieved accreditation by the Royal Caledonian Curling Club in Scotland (see here) and soon after the club was renamed in honor of the RCCC, becoming the New Caledonian Curling Club. We moved to our present location (an indoor facility!) along the Pictou waterfront in 1910. We replaced our tidally-influenced sand floor with our present three-sheet, concrete floor in the 1980’s, adding the present clubhouse a few years later.
