The Granite Curling Club is starting the campaign for new rocks! The campaign will focus on the opportunity to engrave inscriptions on rock handles. This is a great opportunity to literally leave your mark on the club.
Our goals are to:
- Have brand new rocks for September 2015
- Raise $24,000 via donations to inscribe 80 rock handles
Please explore the New Rock Campaign information online.
Online League registration is closed until spring league signup. Registration needs to be pre-approved by the Leagues Coordinator to make sure there is a spot for you. Please contact him
