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.
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.

Time – often an overlooked thing to a curling bystander. But, time was the unofficial fifth man for Seattle’s Luc Violette rink as Riley Fenson’s team couldn’t get off the final shot of the game to try to score a point to send the game to an extra end this afternoon as the 2016 U.S. Youth Olympic Team Trials for Curling came to a close.
