Joe Polo from the 2006 US Olympic curling team will be joining us to walk in the Doo-Dah parade and help teach at our open house on Saturday, June 6, 2009. Come out, meet Joe, learn a few things about top level curling and be a part of the biggest sports movement in Kalamazoo history. How many times do you get to play with and learn from an Olympic medal winner?
Thanks to all that came out to the Learn to Curl Open house (about 200 in all). Especially those who fought Friday night’s snow storm. We hope all enjoyed their exposure to the great sport of curling. I know I didn’t hear a discouraging word. We apologize to all who didn’t get to participate, and to any who called or emailed to register and didn’t get a response. The person receiving phone calls and emails for this event was in the hospital having a baby. It won’t happen again. Well, at least not for another nine months.
People are asking when they can come back. We will answer that question as soon as we can. This event surely demonstrated that there is a demand for curling in the greater Kalamazoo area. We plan to have another Learn to Curl event, open curling throughout the Summer and a Fall league. We’ll get that scheduled soon. Please check back on this website now and then to stay information.
Or better yet, get on our e-mail list, and we’ll email you when we have some news. We’ve had some requests for T-shirt sales on the website. We’re working on that one too.
Thanks for all the great comments and positive feedback. The Kalamazoo Curling Club is off to a great start.
