Join us for the second annual McGill Young Alumni Curling Night. No experience necessary. In fact, if you've heard of the term "rock" you'll be a star. A short introductory clinic will be followed by games and then drinks. Definitely more fun than watching it on TV. Space is limited and the event was sold out last year, so RSVP as soon as possible!
