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.
Please have it be known that only artificial Christmas trees are allowed in the club.
The most competitive curling event in the U.S. will return to the Seattle area for the first time in 20 years as Xfinity Arena in Everett hosts the 2017 USA Curling National Championships.
In partnership with the Granite Curling Club of Seattle and Snohomish County, the 2017 Nationals take place Feb. 11-18, 2017.
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.
