By Sheldon Spackman
Red Deer’s Pidherney Curling Centre will be the site of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference or ACAC’s Fall Regional this weekend.
The Three day event starts Friday, November 25th and runs until Sunday, November 27th and will feature some of the top collegiate curlers in Alberta.
Eight post-secondary schools will be in attendance. RDC, University of Alberta Augustana, Lakeland College and NAIT will all enter men’s, women’s and mixed curling teams.
MacEwan University and Concordia University will be sending a women’s and mixed curling
team. Olds College will enter a men’s and mixed team. Lastly, a mixed team will represent
In a release, RDC ‘s Curling Head Coach Brad Hamilton who was named last year’s ACAC Curling Coach of the Year, says “Several ACAC curlers participate at the junior level at the same time. It can be close to the top level of juniors,” adding “The competition is very good. ACAC curling has a different feel, playing for the school logo on their jackets rather than just individuals on a team.”

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details
Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction
As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
- The pool will remain closed until September.
- To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
- On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
- Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.
We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.
About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project
Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:
- Two NHL standard playing surfaces
- Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
- Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
- Improved accessibility
- Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
- Additional parking
During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
