We have two different curling opportunities this summer. We have a Friday evening mini-league running in July and a Sunday morning mini-league in August.
One of most significant projects this past year was the building new scoreboards. Buck and Joe documented the process and took lots of pictures!
When it was time to purchase new hacks, the Lone Star Curling Club was very impressed by its members who sponsored ten hacks. Thanks a lot!
A New Look for the Lone Star Curling Club
We have been busy this past year. This past week-end Chaparral Ice took down the ice and we were able to install new curling rings. We now have 5 sets of curling rings which should be great. We should no longer struggle in seeing the rings and hopefully the ice is better than ever. We also have new hacks! Thanks all who took part in sponsor-a-hack! And finally we created new scoreboards. Gone are the whiteboards and felt markers. Thanks again to Buck and Joe!
We do not take to summer off. We have two mini-leagues that are each four weeks in duration. Starting on July 11th we are having another Friday evening mini-league. And starting on August 3rd we have a Sunday morning mini-league. Both leagues are $100 and are for four weeks.
The Winter Olympics have helped increase membership. We had over four hundred learn-to-curlers come and take a class. Forty or so of those learn-to-curlers curled in our first ever evening league in the month of April!
During the 2010 Winter Olympics, television viewers watched more curling than any other sport. Why is curling so popular? Because it’s fun, competitive, challenging and anyone can do it. The Lone Star Curling Club invites you to come visit us on anytime we are curling.
The Lone Star Curling Club was founded in 2006, in Austin, Texas and is an affiliate of the United States Curling Association. We welcome anyone who wants to learn more about curling and encourage you to contact our club to find out more about this great sport.
