Curling Etiquette

To help keep the the ice awesome and everybody happy, the club asks that you please respect the etiquette points listed in the image below, also posted at the club.

In particular:

1) Don’t Burn The Ice!
Do not leave your knee or hand on the ice after your delivery. It only takes 3 seconds to melt the ice.

2) Be Ready To Throw
You should be in the hack with your rock already cleaned when your skip puts down their broom. The lead throwing the first rock of an end should get in the hack immediately with their rock, and let other players clear rocks from the house. Skips should hustle from the house to the hack when it’s their turn. Hurry! Hurry hard!

Novice League starts Oct 22

NoviceLeague_2019Here’s an opportunity for newbies to get into the game, or for those with a little experience to learn to skip in a low stress environment.

First and second year members are invited to register for a 6 game Novice League:

Tuesdays  6:30 – 8 pm
Oct 22, Oct 29, Nov 5

Saturdays  1 – 2:30 pm
Oct 26, Nov 2, Nov 9

Games will be 4 to 6 ends.  There will be a certified coach providing instruction throughout the game, so don’t worry if you didn’t make it to a Learn to Curl session.  Stick curlers are always welcome.

Cost is a $20 membership plus $5 per game.  Register by emailing kaslocurling@gmail.com, or sign up on the sheet at the club.  Payment can be made just before the game.

Attendance at all 6 games is not required!  However, this is not a drop-in session.  Just like in a regular curling league, please let us know if you can’t make a date so we can find a spare to take your place.

2019 – 2020 Season is here!

Walk softly and carry a big stick!

If you can walk then you can curl!  Stick curling is as easy as shuffle board but with all the strategy and camaraderie of the roaring game.  We have stick curlers playing in all our sessions, including League.

Learn to Stick Curl sessions are on:
Thu, Oct. 3, 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Sat, Oct. 5, 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Absolutely no sliding is allowed in the Learn to Stick Curl sessions, so don’t even think about it!  This is a great way to get into the game quickly and easily.  More Learn to Stick Curl sessions can be added on request.

But if you want to feel the wind in your hair (or what’s left of it) as you slide across the ice then …

Learn to Curl sessions are on:
Tue, Oct. 8, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Thu, Oct. 10, 1:00 – 2:30 pm
Sat, Oct. 12, 1:00 – 2:30 pm
Tue, Oct. 15, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Stick curlers are welcome at the Learn to Curl sessions too!

Learn to (Stick) Curl sessions are free, and all equipment is provided.  Please wear clean running shoes, loose or stretchy pants if you plan to slide, and a sweater or jacket.  Gloves, a hat, and/or ear muffs are also a good idea.

Do you have a group of family, friends or co-workers who are curious about curling, or even thinking of putting a team into our Thursday/Friday League?  We’d be happy to arrange a private Learn to Curl ice time to get you started.  Email kaslocurling@gmail.com.
