We are a local group of people who have learned to enjoy the friendship and fun of standing on a sheet of ice and sliding stones toward a target at the other end.
Curling got its start in Scotland during the 1600's and was originally played using river stones with handmade handles. The concepts and strategy of the game have changed little in 400 year's. We still use stones with handles, but now we are not subject to the whim's of nature. We curl indoors on manufactured ice and the temperature is controlled year round.
League Play is held on Tuesday night's from 7PM to 9:15PM.
We will be starting our Fall season on OCT 1st 2013.
We will have our regular ice time from 7:15 to 9:15 PM with Ice prep beginning at 6:45PM.
Volunteers for ice prep are greatly appreciated.
Now for the good news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have three, yes that is a 3, times each week that we can curl......
We will have our regular Tuesday evening session each week. We are reserving this time for our new curlers. Our plan is to have new curlers on the ice and have our more experienced curlers help out with coaching and mentoring of the new curlers. We have all been there, new curlers need advice and encouragement.
We also have Ice time on WED evening from 8pm to 10PM and we would like to have this league consist of our experienced curlers.
The really exciting news is that the Ice Sheet has given us Sunday afternoons from 3PM to 5:15 PM to hold an open ice time for curlers. This will be a great time to work on your delivery, practice your shot making skills, set up some practice drills and improve your game, play another position and improve your shot calling and understanding of the game. Also, you can invite your family and friends to introduce them to the game we love so much.
We have never had an opportunity like this before and I am really excited about all of the possibilities that this opens up for our club. We no longer have to turn people away because we dont have room for them to participate. WOO HOO. The cost for this sunday ice time is $10.00 per person.
We also have ice time on the second Wednesday of each month that we can use for whatever we desire. The ice is ours from 6pm to 8pm. We can schedule corporate learn to curl events, family ice time, or an open house to promote our club. we can use it for fundraising activities and help to offset the cost of our league ice fees. If you have ever wanted to host a corporate team building event for your employer or you know of anyone looking to host one, we now have ice time that is ours to use as we see fit.
Exciting times are in store for our club. i am excited about the future of curling in the Ogden area.
