Founded in 1961, the Granite Curling Club (GCC) of Seattle is home to curlers of all abilities, including more national champions than any other club in the USA.
The "regular season" is October through March each year, and the "spring season" with reduced activities is April through June; there is no curling in July and August. During the regular and spring seasons, there are many Leagues, Bonspiels (competitions), and Open Houses. You're welcome to come out and participate, compete, or just watch the action.
Our Annual General Meeting will be held at the club on Saturday, May 21. Cocktail hour will begin at 4:30, dinner will be served at 5:30, and the meeting itself will start at 6:30.
At the AGM we will review the past year, present next year's budget, vote in new board members, recognize this year's champions and award winners, and give out league crystal. We will also vote on two changes to our bylaws - regarding quorum and notice of meeting.
Hello, GCC Members. We are so excited to be sharing the 5 finalists for the GCC Branding Concept Contest. We had many, many entries, and would like to thank everyone who submitted their ideas. All entries were voted on by the GCC Branding Committee and the GCC Board of Trustees separately. Both committees' votes were then compared to select the 5 finalists for the general membership vote.

We're having the following Spring Leagues this year;
Team USA captured the silver medal today in mixed team competition at the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.
It is the first team medal for the U.S. at this event. Team USA’s Luc Violette (Lake Stevens, Wash.), Cora Farrell (Fairbanks, Alaska), Ben Richardson (Issaquah, Wash.), and Cait Flannery (Mankato, Minn.) finished with an 8-2 record after today’s 10-4 loss to Canada’s Mary Fay rink in the gold-medal game at Lillehammer Curling Hall. The team is coached by Tom Violette (Lake Stevens, Wash.).
Update: Repairs to the interior of the building are very nearly complete. The box on sheet 1 will come down on Tuesday! However, sheet 1 will remain unusable for the remainder of the regular season. Our ice crew has scheduled a flood on April 3. Sheet 1 will only be usable after a lot of work, including the flood. We have chosen not to bring the date of the flood forward because it would cause more interruption to leagues - and our league managers have already done a ton of work to rearrange league schedules. Therefore, sheet 1 will not be usable until April 4 at the earliest.
(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) – Seattle’s Brady Clark rink won the men’s final of the 2016 USA Curling National Championships in convincing fashion with a 10-4 victory over John Shuster tonight at Veterans Memorial Arena.
It was the third time the two sides met this week with Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.) and his team of Greg Persinger (Fairbanks, Alaska), Colin Hufman (Seattle), and Philip Tilker (Seattle) prevailing all three times against Shuster’s defending champions.
With a come from behind win in a playoff, Ken Trask, Duane Rutan, Peter Sommer, and Steve Lundeen won the Men's State Club Championship this evening. They and the women's team, Miyo Konno, Sara Skulec, Nicole Samson, Aryn Grause, Gina Triolo, and Leslie Frosch (Coach), move on to the National Club Championships in Bismarck March 5-12.
