The local floor curlers will be winding up another season on May 5 with a potluck dinner at the Endiang Hall. This will complete 32 years of floor curling in Endiang. In the earlier years the game was called disking as the wooden disks had no handles. This long-running sport has involved many people and brought much enjoyment over those years.

The club has hosted many tournaments and Endiang has always been a popular spot with its hospitality and good hardwood floor for curling.
