Community Block Party Curling – Sept. 13th 1-4pm

The Community Block Party is having curling September 13th from 1-4pm at the Runestone Community Center. New curlers welcomed! Young and old and fun for all. Vikingland Curling Club members will introduce to the great sport of curling.

What do you need?

Clothing
Dress in layers.  The arena temperature is about 45-50 degrees. You’ll be standing on ice for two hours. If you normally wear a hat outside, you’ll probably want to wear one while curling as well.
Clothing should allow freedom of movement.  You need to be able to squat and lunge (blue jeans are not recommended since your movement is restricted).
Lightweight gloves keep your hands warm while still allowing you to feel the stone.

Footwear
Please bring a pair of clean athletic shoes with soft rubber soles for maximum grip.
Avoid shoes with metal on top.
If your feet tend to get cold, consider wearing two pairs of socks.
The Club will supply any other equipment necessary.

THE CURLING EXPERIENCE – LEARN TO CURL CLINICS & OPEN HOUSE – Oct 11th & 15th

LEARN TO CURL CLINICS – You are invited to attend one of our upcoming events!  Learn to Curl Fees: $10/person:

October 11th – 9:30 AM (Saturday)

October 15th – 6:30 PM (Wednesday)  OCT 15TH – REGISTRATION

OPEN HOUSE/OPEN CURLING – You are invited to attend October 18th at 9:30am to 12pm.

All are welcome! No curling experience or equipment required.

The Learn to Curl clinics are ideal for those who have never tried the sport before, but are curious to learn the basics. Curling is a “lifetime” sport for people of all ages and abilities. We can also accommodate wheelchair curlers and those who may not be as flexible as they once were with “stick” curling. We love for kids to try curling! Because it takes a certain amount of strength to slide the 42 pound granite stones down the ice, kids about 8 years and up are generally able to participate.
