NEW!! Friday night league

Looking for help with your curling game? Want to play a pick up game with other beginners? Want to meet other members of the club? Join us on Fridays!

The club is going to offer weekly game play sessions at 7:00 on Friday nights, intended primarily for beginning curlers, but open to anyone who might like to gain: game experience, help with delivery or learn basic game strategies. Teams will be formed each week with those on hand. Experienced players are welcome to play, assist, or teach by example. Ideally, participants will be regular attendees so that we have some group stability. The first session will be this Friday, November 8 at 7:00pm. Come down to the club and check it out!

Sunday 4:00 Special League

The Sunday 4:00 pm Special League will have a schedule beginning Sunday November 3, 2013.   There were over 100 participants in the learn to curl clinics and some of them will join the Sunday 4 league.  Most are meeting Wednesday October 30 and we can then complete the teams and schedule for the Sunday 4 league.  If you have already signed up tor Sunday 4,  you need not attend the Wednesday meeting.  The ice will be available Sunday at 4  for all who have signed up, to practice and perhaps challenge other teams who are also practicing.

Senior Curling Update

The DCC’s afternoon recreational curling for seniors – including men and women interested in learning the sport – will begin with a warm-up and instructional clinic at 1pm Thursday, October 31st.  Once the season starts, senior curlers gather at 1pm every Tuesday and Thursday for club competition with several one-day “mini-bonspiels” planned, including a home-and-home rivalry with senior curlers from Eveleth’s Curl Mesabi Club.

For all the details, please check out the Fall newsletter or contact Ellis Johns for more info.

One-on-One League Update

We’ll have one-on-one curling again this year.  Each league is limited to 10 players and we can have up to 4 leagues.  Curlers arrange their matches – we encourage the use of email to avoid playing phone tag.  The league is setup for one match per week, however make-up games can be played as arranged with your opponent.

There is a $10 fee to join the league that covers prizes at the end of the year.  The $10 is not paid as part of your regular league dues but is paid directly to Nancy Odden.  Sign up in the office, and see Nancy Odden with questions!
