No Curling at Deeside, Mon 26th Oct

Next week is the Half Term break for Flintshire. Deeside Ice Rink will be over-run with schoolchildren going ice skating, and therefore not available for curling on 26th October.

Meanwhile, the Welsh Bonspiel runs from Friday 30th October to Sunday 1st November, so there will be updates from Greenacres over the long weekend to help stave off the curling-withdrawal symptoms.

All being well, we should resume curling at Deeside on Monday 2nd November.
