Traditionally, May through September - give or take a month - is the curling off-season. Most curling clubs that have their own building pack everything up this time of year and close shop until the Fall. However, for those curling clubs who rent hockey ice - that's us, for the time being - our ice is is available all year long! In spite of the weather, that makes the summer the perfect time for arena clubs to host a "bonspiel". (For those new to the sport, "bonspiel" is a fancy word that we curlers made up to mean "curling tournament". Between 25 and 50% of our club membership travels to one or more out-of-town bonspiels each year.)
Hello! Welcome to the new Triangle Curling Club blog. About once a week, we'll be blogging about our club, our quest to build our own dedicated curling facility, and curling in general. When I say "new blog", really, we mean that our website will start to have more regular content and postings, and that it will tend to be more blog-like in nature. Enjoy!
Also, we promise that our blog posts are not just going to be thinly veiled attempts at fundraising. cough cough donate cough cough ... Wait, what was that?
