The Fundy Curling Club (FCC), established in 1961, looks to be headed towards one of the best curling seasons in recent memory! Exciting things have been happening to help promote this great activity at the only curling club in Albert County.

During the past two winters, we have seen a number of power outages in New Brunswick. In the north part of the province, power was out for more than one week. Here, in the south, we were without power for up to 109 hours, or roughly four and one-half days.

After five nights of complete darkness, the flashing orange lights of three power trucks were a welcome light at the end of the tunnel.
I stopped my car next to a man who shone a massive flashlight into dark woods. He wore the orange coveralls of a linesman with a hardhat and headlamp like a miner.
“When I drove by earlier,” I told him, “a yellow birch was on the lines around the corner.”
“We just cut that and freed the lines,” he replied. “Power should be back on within the hour.”
December was a busy month at the Fundy Curling Club with Santa arriving early and his elves unpacking our brand new ice plant! With the help of the elves and a dedicated team of volunteers, the new plant is up and running, and ice will be ready during the first week of January. (Image by Kevin Snair of Creative Imagery).
