Riverdale curlers: you’ll notice something new in the 2016-2017 season calendar that Cam just posted… This year we will have a playoff weekend rather than two separate playoff weeks.
Often there’s a huge gap between playoff games depending on the timing of Easter and the club’s men’s spiel. That will not be an issue for us this year since all Riverdale playoff games will take place on the weekend of April 1-2, and our final banquet that Sunday evening — almost like a bonspiel.
Another handy benefit to this new schedule is that teams wishing to participate in the Ottawa bonspiel will be able to attend without missing the first game of Riverdale playoffs, like last year.
How will it work? Saturday will be like week 1 of playoffs…all of the quarter finals. And Sunday will be like week 2 of playoffs, with all semi-final and final games will taking place and followed by the final banquet and AGM.
Do you have suggestions for special activities or celebrations during our playoff weekend? Then talk to our Events Coordinator, Scott MacDougall.
