The first rock has been thrown at the Steinbach Curling Club's new complex.

About 60 curlers in the senior mixed league took in the first afternoon of curling on Monday and their impressions of the new building are favourable, with curlers appreciative of the brighter lighting and extra square footage.

John Sawatzky said the atmosphere amongst the curlers was exciting.

"I've already seen new curlers coming in that I haven't seen here before, and those that are returning have a new zip for the season," he said.

The men's league will play their first draws Monday night.

Construction workers are still wandering around the complex immediately east of the preexisting T.G. Smith Centre. Work is ongoing on the one-screen movie theatre, the curling club's new office and electrical hookups, among other projects.

The 50-year-old former curling club across the street was torn down several months ago to make way for the new Steinbach Credit Union building.
