Please grab some friends, and join us for the inaugural Kal-Haven Curling Cup on February 19 in South Haven, and on April 13 in Kalamazoo. The idea behind it is pure fun, with the hopes that it generates enthusiasm for the sport in each city, and perhaps gives people in each city a feel for the fun that might be had at a bonspiel. South Haven has an outdoor skating rink, where they have installed some curling sheets. They’ve shortened the regulation curling sheets to fit on their rink, but it’s certainly helping to expand the sport in southwest Michigan.
We’re looking for 4 teams from each city for each event. Here’s the details:
South Haven – Sunday, February 19
9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
$5 per player / $20 per team
Kalamazoo – Friday, April 13
7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
$25 per player / $80 per team
Yes, you read that correctly. $5 for the curling in South Haven. It’s their rink. They get to decide the prices. Don’t argue with them. There are still more details to come, but the likely scenario is the chance to play one game in South Haven (they only have stones for two sheets), and play two 5-end matches in Kalamazoo.
If you’re interested, download the registration form. We need people to sign up ASAP for the South Haven portion… and spaces will likely fill up quickly for the Kalamazoo portion. If you have questions, contact Jason Hall: firstname.lastname@example.org
