Curlphobia update

 We still have some openings for Draw 3 (Friday 8pm, Saturday 2pm, and Sunday 9am) and Draw 4 (Saturday 8am and 4pm, and Sunday 11am). Both draws consist almost entirely of new curlers - so we could use a few more experienced curlers to help out. If you can only play 2 of the 3 games, sign up, and we will try to find a sub for the third game.Register online at https://bgcurlingclub.com/index.php/events/list-of-events

 Also, we are looking for a few volunteers to bring snacks on Friday and Saturday evening. Nothing fancy, just what you would typically bring on a league night. If you are willing to do this, please let Scott Piroth know.

 The club will provide lunch and dinner on Saturday, and entertainment throughout - including the first ever Groundhogs vs. Ducks race! We have some fabulous prizes to award to the winners of the races. Best of all, the event is free to members and Starter League curlers. (We just ask for a donation to cover food costs and a general willingness to help out as needed).

Curlphobia

Our first full season at the Black Swamp Curling Center is quickly coming to an end, but we have one more big on-ice event planned - The Curlphobia Clubspiel! The spiel includes 3 6-end games of curling with guaranteed draw times, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and entertainment throughout - including the first ever Groundhogs vs. Ducks race! Best of all, the event is free to members and Starter League curlers. (We do ask for a donation to cover food costs and a general willingness to help out as needed).

We opened this up to our Starter League curlers and have had a great response. There are over 70 Starterl League curlers already registered. But, we haven't forgotten about our members. We have lots of space available in Draw 3 (Friday, April 13 at 8pm, Saturday, April 14 at 2pm, and Sunday, April 15 at 9am) and Draw 4 (Saturday, April 15 at 8am and 4pm, and Sunday, April 15 at 11am). The only stipulation is that teams may have no more than two curlers with more than one year of experience. Register as individuals by selecting your choice of drawtimes at https://bgcurlingclub.com/index.php/events/list-of-events

This will be our final chance to get on the ice until next fall. If your sick of curling, just come and socialize and watch the races on Saturday. Feel free to come dressed as your favorite phobia.
