Curling School at Evergreen CC

March 9, 2014 - 2:41pm -- Doug

Steve Liske tells us: Curling school will be in session at ECC April 4-6, and we couldn't be more excited about it. A terrific group of three very accomplished Canadian curlers/instructors, led by Renee Sonnenberg, will be providing all of the instruction. I met Renee at Four Foot Camp in 2013 - she's a great instructor and an even better person. The school takes place over three days, and is aimed at curlers with at least one year of experience. I bet some of your members would really enjoy it.

Spring Leagues Are Go!

It’s time for spring league registration. The board has already given the go ahead for spring leagues, so they are definitely happening this year. We are currently offering four leagues; Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings, plus Thursday morning. All spring leagues are appropriate for all skill levels and are a format similar to the main season Friday Open league (teams allowed at manager’s discretion, individuals will be placed on teams).
