Thank you to all teams that joined us for our Beers of the World Open Bonspiel on Dec. 6-8. We love getting a chance to see old friends, and make some new ones in the process.

Mike and his rink knocked off Columbus' Turner rink, two-time defending champions of our bonspiel. It was an excellent game that came down to the final stone.

We are just a few weeks away from the kick off of our 2013-2014 season as well as only a few months away from the Sochi Winter Olympics. This will mean a busy winter for us!
Registration for full membership will be open from September 7 until September 30. With the greater need for volunteer time to run our additional clinics this season, we have reduced our full membership fee as a thank you in advance. We instructed almost 1,200 people in learn to curl and private outings between January and the end of March during the Vancouver Winter Olympics. And we had just under another 700 people on our waiting list!
If you're joining us for the first time and thinking of taking a learn to curl clinic, don't wait for the Olympics to sign up. As you can see above, curling becomes the most popular sport to play in Columbus during the Olympics. Become an expert before the Olympics start so when curling comes on TV, you can exhibit your diverse sports knowledge! Clinic registration can be found under the Learn to Curl drop down menu at the top.
If you are interested in private corporate outings, you will find more information here.
We also have various sponsorship and advertising opportunities. To learn more about these, please email our
If you are still wondering whether curling is something you would like to try, be sure to come out for our open house on Saturday, October 12. You can see the club, step out onto the ice and watch some curling. More details will appear here soon.

Give the gift that ROCKS! To purchase gift certificates, go here. For more information on our clinics, click here.

A common desire amongst our membership is to move into a dedicated facility that we own. We currently play in leased warehouse space, which is much better than renting arena ice, but it does have its limitations. A quest for a new club is a long term goal, but until we complete a business plan to accomplish this goal, no spending has been approved to market a fundraising campaign. In other words, we want to approach this task responsibly.
To achieve that, we must continue to develop our programs. Our ice is very underutilized during the day and greater use will be required to support a new club. Additional programs have to be developed now so that they are in place to operate and maintain a facility we will own.
With these requirements in place, we certainly will not turn down any money people wish to contribute to a building fund. We already have had one donation specifically to this. We estimate in the current market that we will need to raise $150,000 for a down payment and other costs to move into a purchased renovated building. We have therefore set this as our current goal.
If you would like to donate to this cause, click on the Donations tab under the Fundraising menu item. If you would like your donation to specifically go to the building fund, please note that in your letter or email us if you donate online.

We raise more than $2,000 each year through the generous Kroger Community Rewards program. Less than one quarter of our members have their Kroger shopping cards registered in the program however. We could raise almost $10,000 a year. Members also have to re-register their card every April to remain in the program. Please keep the revenue coming in by registering at Kroger Cares. Thank you!!
