Located at 22 Lansdowne Street in the town of Sackville, New Brunswick, the club caters to all ages and levels of interest. With a variety of leagues and levels of competition, as well as a variety of curling and social activities, we're sure to have something for everyone from the complete beginner to national competitor.
There were curlers in Sackville as early as 1901 and Sackville Curling Club was incorporated in 1949. We have three sheets of ice, a bar, a function room, and a kitchen.
We have leagues for mens', ladies' and mixed curling. As well there are programs for junior curlers and for little rocks. The year 2016/17 saw the start of a new league for mixed doubles.
We are sending along a brief update to address questions that have come up regarding our new curling stones.
At present, we have been curling with the new stones since the first of the year. You have likely noticed that only some of the stones have new, inscribed handles. When purchasing the stones, we purchased all new handles. We still have rocks available to be sponsored and inscribed, so, rather than shipping handles here and then back for inscription, we left them with the company until we are ready to complete the order.
Stones are still available to be sponsored and inscribed at a cost of $600.00. We hope to have another ten to twelve sponsors which would complete two full sheets. The Board, in consultation with the members, will make a decision about the stones on the third sheet and how, if and when they will be inscribed.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors along with grants from the Town and Province our stones are now paid for. Some of the funds used to complete the purchase were from club funds held in reserve for contingencies, emergencies and future planning. It is these funds that we hope to replace with the final sponsorships.
There are a number of our original handles that continue to have significance to the club and members and the old handles will not be destroyed. We hope to have these displayed in a prominent location in the future or there may be another better way to hang on to these. If you have some thoughts or feedback on these handles as a group or, individual handles that you feel have special significance, please bring this to the attention of a board member.
Members will be informed of final decisions regarding the old handles and the new handles for sheet 3.
For those still interested in sponsoring a stone, or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to a Board Member. Thank you again to those who have supported the Rock Replacement Campaign.

My name is Dave Oyler and I curl at the Mayflower. I am trying to put together a challenge match on March 7 at the Mayflower for club level teams (teams that are at the competitive level of teams that participate in the Club Championship aka the Travelers). Two teams from the Mayflower would take on two club level teams from another club. We would play ten ends in a skins format with a changeover of opponents after five ends. There would be a charge for the ice (about $8 per person) and if enough people are interested, we could arrange to have a meal afterwards. The game would start at 3pm.
I am putting this out to a number of clubs in the hopes of getting at least one club interested. If there is more than one, then the format would be adjusted but the time wouldn't change.
If you have any questions or interest, you can reach me at 476-4755 or email email@example.com
