Our Beginner’s League that was scheduled to begin on Monday, October 4 has been cancelled. There will be open curling on that date for those folks still interested in getting on the ice. For those of you still interested, we are hoping to have another session of our beginner’s league. It’s a 3 week program designed to get people familiar with curling. The next session is set to start October 25. Find out more here.
Well, the Kalamazoo Curling Club IS going to be functioning this winter… The change in the weather has finally gotten us in gear to announce dates and times for our Fall and Winter leagues. Take a look at our event calendar for league dates, and also for a SMALL amount of bonspiels that are happening nearby.
For a full list of bonspiels all over the U.S., visit the USCA web site. We will have more information here as it becomes available… perhaps a change or two…
The folks at Wings Stadium have had a busy summer. They have taken over operations of the other ice rinks in Kalamazoo (now called Wings West), AND they have totally gutted the Annex and put in a new floor over there… which we hope will lead to an AWESOME curling experience for the club.
Stay tuned for more information… curling season starts VERY soon! Good curling!
The day has finally come… it is the end of our tournament here in Kalamazoo… and time to send two teams off to the world championships The women will head off to Swift Current, SK, Canada; The men will head off to Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
It’s been a fantastic week, and we can’t express enough enthusiasm and appreciation at the VOLUNTEER officials who came from all over the country… the VOLUNTEER ice crew that came from far and near… all the other VOLUNTEERS who made this event possible… and, of course, to all the fantastic, fun, good-spirited athletes that were at the center of this all… We have truly enjoyed hosting you this week, and look forward to seeing you again… on the ice! Thank you! Great curling!
With that, we offer you the final edition of The Early Draw, and a link to the live web stream of the final matches: ladies at 10 AM EST, and men at 3 PM EST.
As the 2010 US Curling National Championships get closer and closer (less than a week away!!), we’re finding just a little more attention from the outside world. There is an article in today’s Kalamazoo Gazette which talks about how it came to be that the Nationals found a 2010 home in Kalamazoo.
