Columbus Curling Club (CCC) traces its early history to a small club in Newark, OH (About 30 miles east of Columbus). Graham Campbell, director of the local ice rink, started Newark Curling Club in 1999. The club curled on two sheets of arena ice with stones that had been donated by Robb Borland of the Great Lakes Curling Association. They had been Robb's personally owned stones. The Newark club however, was a labor of love that could not garner the needed interest and support from a small community and the sheets in Newark are currently dark.
