Start of Winter Season Delayed November 14, 2020

We have been working with USA Curling, Glacier Ice Rink and our board to develop a plan for this unprecedented time.

We have decided to delay the beginning of our winter league to allow the surge in COVID-19 infections to settle down. Right now, we have a plan to assess the relative safety of curling.

At the beginning of each month, the board will consider the infection rate, availability of a vaccine and other factors to decide if we can start our season. Based on what we heard from you all in a series of surveys and from the September mini-league, many players want the daily infection rate to drop to where it was in mid-September. The first week of each month, the board will assess where we are and if we feel we can start, we will announce the start of a five-week league the next month. So, at the beginning of December, we will decide if we can start right after New Years. If things are not good then, we will meet in January to decide about February.

Our goal is to get people curling as soon as it is relatively safe and responsible.

Club Announces Return to Curling Rules August 11, 2020

We are beginning to plan for a return to curling that promotes safe play and social distancing. The Club has been working with USA Curling to develop plans to combat COVID that we have begun to outline on a new site.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing playing options that offer flexibility and affordability -- two things we have heard from you are important this season -- for you all.

Headgear Options November 06, 2019

As we kick off this brand-new season of curling some people have been asking about the curling safety gear that players, including myself, have been wearing. I have seen multiple players receive concussions from impacts with the ice. Speaking as someone who has had loved one have to deal with TBI, I can tell you that the brain is a delicate thing. Protect what you got!

 

Here are a few head gear options to check out. I know there are other options available, but I wanted to send links to safety gear that I have seen our membership wearing on the ice. I'm sure that I can speak for the other players out there, I would be more than happy to show you what I wear so you could check it out, first hand, some of these options.
