FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Curling Club season is looking up. After a chiller malfunction on October 17th and the cost to replace the chiller around $78,000, it looked like the curling season wasn’t going to happen for the club this year.
After bringing the chiller to City Council on Monday, October 26th, the council approved the chiller’s replacement for $78,172.50. According to the Fort St. John Curling Club President, Connie Ritcher, the chiller has already been ordered and, by mid-December, the ice should be in.
Ritcher also says that the club will be reaching out to members in the upcoming days to update them. She also says that for the last weeks of December, members will be able to use the ice with leagues starting up in January.
Any members with questions or concerns can reach out to Jeff Holland or Ritcher at 250-785-2037.
