There will be no more curling this winter in Dauphin, even when the province allows the sport to take place.
President of the Dauphin Curling Club, Morgan Kropelnicki says a decision was made to cancel the remainder of the season, including bonspiels as Manitoba remains under 'Code Red' restrictions.
The ice at the DCC will be taken out as the focus shifts to preparing for next fall and another season. Kropelnicki says it wasn't an easy decision, but everyone involved in the meeting agreed that it was the right thing to do.
"The most important thing is the club member's safety and we just don't feel it's the safe decision to get people back on the ice when possible," said Kropelnicki. "We also weren't sure if we were going to lose some teams as well. We're looking forward to coming back next fall."
'Code Red' is slated to come to an end on Friday evening, but in a release on Tuesday, it doesn't appear that the government is looking at re-opening recreational facilities at this point. The last curling game played in Dauphin was more than two months ago.
