2012 Winter League and more…

Can you believe that we are already coming up on our WINTER FRIDAY NIGHT CURLING LEAGUE? The Fall session has been going great, and we have 10 teams playing right now. We wanted to get a message out to everyone so that you have plenty of time to get your teams signed up for the winter league. The information is as follows:

LEAGUE START DATE: January 27th
The cost for the 8 nights of curling is $185 for members, and $245 for non members. To sign up, please email our league coordinators Eric and Michelle Nitz or Marcus Gleaton. You can also sign up on our website. If you are looking to get your own team, have 3 people and need another, or just want to jump on someone’s team, we’ll get you taken care of. Just let us know.

SIGN UP DEADLINE FOR THE LEAGUE IS JANUARY 13th.
If you sign up after that date, the cost of the league is $205 for members, and $265 for non-members.

Some other information for everyone to think about:

  • We have an open sheet on Monday nights that is not being used for our league. We are renting it out to groups for $125 for 2 hours. If you know of anyone that is interested in renting it, have them contact Marcus Gleaton, and he will schedule it for them. It is also available for club members free of charge, and to individual non-club members for $20 per person. The individual curling is only available on nights we don’t have it pre-rented. If the sheet is already rented to a group, there won’t be any availability.
  • The publication date for the winter issue of the KCC newsletter, The Extra End, is scheduled for Friday, January 27, 2012. If you have pictures, articles, or other items to submit for the newsletter, please send them to Jason Hall. The submission deadline is Friday, January 13, 2012.
  • Look for some updates on our next Trivia FUNdraiser to be held at Bell’s Brewery again. We are looking at a couple dates in January and February.
  • We have an OPEN CURLING / LEARN TO CURL event scheduled for January 20th. This is meant to be for newer curlers looking to try the sport and possibly get them to join our league that starts the following Friday. Try to think of someone who has said that they want to try curling and try and get them out there for our learn to curl.

Newsletter Submissions

The publication date for the winter issue of the KCC newsletter, The Extra End, is scheduled for Friday, January 27, 2012. If you have pictures, articles, or other items to submit for the newsletter, please send them to jason@curlthezoo.org. The submission deadline is Friday, January 13, 2012.

This Space for Rent

Well, not this space… but we do have SOME space for rent.

Our curling season is underway, but perhaps you didn’t sign up for a league. Don’t worry about it. You can sign up for the Winter 2012 Friday Night league… there’s plenty of time for that. In the meantime, if you’d like to come out with some friends and throw some stones, we do have an open sheet available each Monday night from 8:30 to 10:30. It is available to be rented out (as an entire sheet) for $125 (up to 8 people) or $20 per person for non club members, free for club members.Contact Marcus Gleaton to inquire about the availability of one curling sheet during this time. Remember that club members can also sub for free; if any of the Monday night teams are in need of a sub, you could get in on a game, too!

2011-12 Curling Season

Howdy folks! Labor day has passed us by, and by now you’ve all put away your white slacks and started putting up your holiday lights… I’m sure that got you thinking that it’s just about time for curling season to begin! Well it is!

We’ve been hammering out the details, trying to figure out the whens and the wheres and the costs… and we think we’ve got it.

Monday Night Super League
Monday nights from 8:30 to 10:30, starting November 28. The cost will be $375 for club members ($440 for non-members), and we’ll be curling for 16 straight weeks.

Friday Night League
Our Friday night league will begin November 4, and run for 8 weeks. There will be some gaps in there. The cost is $185 ($245 for non-members). We will run another 8-week league in the winter… so don’t be discouraged if this one doesn’t work out for you.

Beginner’s League
We will also be offering a short, 3-week league for beginners. The cost on this is $85, and you can choose from two sessions. The first will be October 10, 17 & 24. The second session will be held November 7, 14 & 21. These will be two hour sessions, held on Monday nights from 8:30 to 10:30. Folks will get a good introduction to the game. It’s a great opportunity to find out if curling is a sport that you’d like to play some more, AND you’ll have plenty of time to round up a team to participate in one of our regular leagues.

You can download the membership form here. Bring it to one of our open curling events on Monday evenings (more details to come — the first is coming up September 19, 2011 at 8:30), or drop an e-mail, and we’ll try to work out the details…

Good curling!

Curling and Ice — a Bad Mix?

Well, Kalamazoo is under the grips of an ice storm that has evidently left lots of people without power. Wings Stadium is among the powerless. Keep an eye on the Kalamazoo Curling Club Twitter feed and Facebook page for updates as to the status of Monday night curling.

[ UPDATE ] Power has been restored to Wings Stadium. Monday night curling is on as of 3:00 p.m.
