The kind generosity of Tom and Cecilia MacKay
The Lone Star Open Bonspiel just completed on May 29th. We had 24 teams compete over 3 days. Each team was guaranteed 4 games and fun was had by all.
In A Division, DFWCC Hockey Allstars (from Dallas) beat Pepakabra (from DC, Broomstone and Colorado) to win the championship. The Olympian and 3 Others took 3rd place.
In B Division, Doremus (from Houston) beat Thor’s Hammer (from Lone Star Curling Club) to win the second division.
In C Division, Broom Goes the Dynamite (from Lone Star Curling Club) beat Sooner Curling (from Oklahoma) to win the third division.
Thanks to everyone who came out to play and to volunteer. A special thanks to Mike Peplinski , Vice-Skip for the US Olympic team in Nagano who joined us for the weekend.

A New Look for the Lone Star Curling Club
We have been busy this past year. This past May, 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!
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! Many of these new curlers are still curling in leagues almost one year later.
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. Regardless of age, whether you’re 16 or 86, curling is for everyone and previous curling experience is not required in order to participate.
