Come On Out and Try Curling!….(party to follow!)…
We host regular Learn to Curl Sessions, about 2 hours and 30 minutes in duration, followed by refreshments and socializing with Club Members afterwards.
These are fun times, aimed at getting new curlers comfortable on the ice and into a curling game for the last part of the session. A brief off-ice introduction comes first. Then you’re on the ice and curling for 2 hours. As a sequel, we have “Mixer Leagues” which new curlers can join.
Corporate or group events – we host these as well. Please drop us a note: email@example.com

Fun Facts about Curling
- Curling, which traces its roots to the 1500s, first became an organized sport in Scotland in the 19th century.
- The stone, or rock, is made of granite and weighs 38 to 44 pounds.
- The stone will tend always curl in one direction or the other as it travels down the ice.
- The players’ feverish sweeping polishes the ice to help the stone travel farther and curl less.
- Curling debuted at the Olympics in 1924 but didn’t return as an official competitive event until the Winter Games of 1998.
- Curling is played worldwide, but is most popular in Canada.
