The 1712 Cup is the prize awarded to the winner of a friendly curling competition between the Charlotte Curling Association and the Palmetto Curling Club (Greenville, SC). This event has been held annually since 2011 and is named in honor of the year in which the colony of Carolina was divided into the separate North and South Carolina colonies.
The 1712 Cup will undergo a small change starting this season. Instead of a home and home challenge, the 1712 Cup will be four 10 end games hosted in Charlotte on Saturday, December 8 at 12:15 pm. Both Palmetto and Charlotte will put forth 4 rinks and each rink will play one game. The winning club will be the one that wins the most games. In the event of a tie, each sheet will perform skip stones and the lowest total for each club will be crowned 1712 Champion.
Registration for Charlotte Curling members is $40 and can be completed at this LINK.
The Charlotte Curling Association hosted one draw for the 1712 Cup at its dedicated curling facility on November 19, 2017. Charlotte was victorious by a score of 41 - 25.5 so the cup stays in Charlotte for another year! Big thanks to everyone who came out to curl, volunteer, and spectate for another great event.
