We have a couple of short reminders for this week.
Annual Meeting & Elections
Please remember to vote! If you haven’t mailed your ballot to the address at the bottom of the form, you can bring it SEALED to the annual meeting. The meeting will be held Friday, May 17th, at 7 PM (right before league) at XIC and will last about 30 minutes.
Ice Prep Meeting
Jay will be holding an Ice Prep Meeting on Saturday, May 18th, at 1:30 PM at the Brickhouse Tavern in Davidson (http://brickhousetavern.com
). Anyone interested in being part of the Ice & Equipment Committee can attend; the goal is to ensure there is coverage by the committee at any event (leagues, LTCs, bonspiels, corporate events, etc.) to produce consistent ice.
After a week of rest, it’s time to get back into the Spring League schedule! Below are the standings and the schedule of matches for Friday May 17th.

From April 26 to April 28 curlers from around the south joined us at the Xtreme Ice Center in Indian Trail, NC for the Charlotte HotShots Curling Camp. Everything that led up to this weekend couldn’t prepare us for the fantastic time that we had and for the top-notch instruction, expert coaching, and dedicated professionals who gave everything they had to make our group of curlers better than they thought they could ever be.
We couldn’t be more grateful to Paul Balabuck, Janet Murphy, Nicole Joraanstad, Earle Morris, Cindy Bishop, Wendy Morgan, our friend Debbie McCormick, and of course Dave Gravelle!
There’s so much more to say and a lot more to see.
In this post are three excerpts of thoughts and reflections on our camp. Two from the Charlotte Curling Club members who were most instrumental in making this weekend a reality and one from Dixon Freeman, the Charlotte Camp’s Pat O Reid Achievement Award winner! Please take the time to click each quote to read their complete thoughts about this wonderful weekend. We’re also gathering together pictures from everyone who attended and you can find them on our Flickr feed. If you have more, please send them!
To everyone, thank you for a weekend we’ll all remember. And “Good Curling!”
The many Curling Clubs across the country do a terrific job keep their partner clubs in the GNCC informed of upcoming Bonspiels. And since we get a lot of notices about upcoming bonspiels, we thought that a featured area might be a nice idea.
So coming soon, the website will have a Bonspiel Newswire page where other clubs can submit information on their events and where our members can find out about them.
To kick things off, The Mount Washington Valley Curling Club in Conway, NH will be hosting their Mount Washington Valley Open Bonspiel from September 20th through September 22nd. Here’s the link if you’re interested in finding out more! New Hampshire is gorgeous in the fall!
Update - No 1712 Cup on the 4th. But we hope to see our SC friends as soon as possible!
The Charlotte Centre Curling Club needs you! We need two leads for the 1712 Cup on May 4th. The event is at 4:45pm in Greenville, SC. It’s free! And it’s always a fun time. You know you want to do it. Your club needs you! North Carolina needs you! Your country needs you!! OK, that last one was a bit over the top. If you want to participate and fill one of these two positions, you can contact Jeremy or send an email to email@example.com to express your interest.
Registration is now open for our Spring Learn to Curl sessions! If you’ve ever wanted to give this sport a try, there’s no better time then now.

And stay tuned, because we’ll have an extra special Learn to Curl session coming really soon!
