I regularly curl in the Saturday morning Sportsmen League out of the Victoria Curling Club.

 

SPARING:

·        See Availability below.

·        To get hold of me for sparing, please email spare@doug-butler.com or text/phone 250-216-0398.

·        Eligibility for Seniors and Masters:  59 years old at the end of 2020.

·        Unfortunately, due to COVID19 restrictions, I cannot spare at Esquimalt.

ABILITY / POSITIONS:

·        Well over 20 years curling experience.

·        Will curl any position, preferring 3rd or 2nd.

·        On the better-than-average side of the curve for club-level play (but I do have my days “outside the zone”).

·        When playing 3rd, I prepare for “Plan B” and can read the line of shot well… having no trouble letting the sweepers know what’s needed.

·        On the technical side, I always play with a stopwatch and can work based on tee-hog times if that’s what you’re looking for (sorry, not practiced with back-line to hog times).
