The 2023-24 season is here! The ice has been installed and the sheets are being worked up to get that ‘green ice’ into something more playable. Sunday, November 12th from 12pm to 2pm we are hosting a combined Registration / Open House. This will also serve as an open house for anyone interested in joining us this year, so please spread the word. Monday November 13th marks the ‘Start Date‘ for this season with kick-off of our Monday Night League. Our ‘Learn to Curl‘ classes will begin on Tuesday at 7pm alongside our Tuesday Night League. We look forward to seeing you soon!
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 Caladh 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.
