This winter, many of us will be glued to YouTube or the television watching some amazing curling in Beijing. We know that when the Olympics roll around interest in curling surges. Last Olympics, we had one earn to curl where some 250 people showed up to try the game. Well, this year we are ready to offer a bit more than just a short taste of curling. This year, we are offering a three-week Olympic minileague.
The league kind of begins with an Olympic day at Glacier Ice Rink on February 12. You will be able to try curling as well as skating and hockey. All are welcome to attend that event.
The mini-league kicks off in earnest the following Saturday, February 19. Up to 20 teams can participate in the league and they will play on the 19th, 26th and March 5th. Games will be at 8:30 p.m. and another will start at 10 p.m. and run for 90 minutes. We will have coaches on site to help teach curling as well as talk strategy. For those who are members of the club, the cost will be $30 for the three weeks. Those who are new, we need to include a social membership in the club which insures you while playing. For those folks, the cost is $55.
Everyone signs up as an individual, but let us know if you have a team of 4 or more you want to play with.
