What are the best parts of having the National Training Center for USA Curling in our backyard? The list would certainly include access to six sheets, locker rooms, a player’s lounge, one of the largest memberships–at approximately 1000 members–and the ability to watch live curling while dining at Crooked Pint Ale House. And it doesn’t end there, with league games played Sunday-Friday evenings October–April and Spring and Summer leagues running May–September.

For me, though, the best part of all is the Bonspiels, specifically Fire & Ice happening October 15-16, because it pairs curling with a community celebration. So come for the curling, and stay for the fun!
