Prince Rupert curling club raising money for renovations

Club hopes to begin construction next year

The Prince Rupert Curling Club is in the process of raising funds to give the hall a much needed upgrade. She said there is work required on the floors, the walls, the foundation, main floor ceiling in addition to a renovation of the hall’s kitchen and bathroom.

Lauzon added that they would like to make the hall wheelchair accessible.

“The place needs some work,” she said. “We’ve only been able to use the hall twice since the end of the curling season.”

The club has been steadily undergoing renovations to the facility over the last few years, completing work to level the curling ice and upgrading the upstairs lounge area. Lauzon said bringing the hall up to date would make it a more attractive place for people from Prince Rupert to host family functions, which would help to support the club financially.

As part of the fundraising effort, Lauzon has been collecting pictures from the club’s history to present as a part of a packaged proposal for businesses in Prince Rupert.

So far, she said she has received many photos from teams participating in recent bonspiels in addition to a photo of from the first rock thrown in the building when it was first constructed.

Lauzon said the club will fundraise during the 2017-2018 season with the hope of beginning construction after the 2018 season has concluded.
