Curling Thoughts – February 23, 2013

Our curling momentum continues to go strong, with our 5th consecutive sold out Learn To Curl session this year.  The next couple of sessions are virtually sold out already as well.  Not only that, but the interest in curling is far reaching, because we had another out of town group come up, this time from Louisville.

A group of 16 , mostly first timers, came and enjoyed themselves.  They are now looking to form a team or two in our upcoming inaugural league.

The good news for curling in Cincinnati is that the people who are coming back are getting the hang of it, and we are playing some fun ends with lots of rocks in play.  The first timers seem to be returning, so the experience that we are providing for beginners must be pretty good. Read more

1000 Islands Mixed Bonspiel

Bonspiels are a great way to travel and enjoy the sport of curling.  Taking your team on the road, meeting new people and seeing new places is one of the cornerstones of curling.

Brockville is a great place to visit along the St. Lawrence River.  Having worked at the Brockville Country Club for 6 years, I can tell you they put on a great event.
