The Kalamazoo Curling Club is pleased to welcome Dean Gemmel, a member of the 2012 US National Champion team, and a person who we respectfully refer to as "the Godfather of the Kalamazoo Curling Club," to our club for two sweeping clinics. When you are done, you should find yourself a little closer to being a badass brusher. Dean has written a new book, "Brush Like a Badass," and he'll be showing us some of the techniques from his book.
We will be offering two clinics on December 12. The first is from 1:30-4:00, and the second runs from 6:30-9:00. The cost is $59. To register, E-mail Dean directly, and he will send you a PayPal invoice. If you want to talk to the man directly, give him a call at 862-216-6096. Download the flyer to share with friends and family.
If you sweep, you will benefit.
Well, it has happened. We are currently in the midst of our first season as a curling club on dedicated ice. We have an ice crew that continues to work amazingly hard to deliver the best ice that our club has ever seen.
Our first bonspiel was a resounding success, and we will hope to improve upon our efforts for next year. We couldn't be doing things like this without dedicated ice — or without dedicated club members.
For those of you who haven't tried this sport yet, you're in luck. Dedicated ice affords us the opportunity to host more learn-to-curl events, and we have several of them lined up right now. Fall leagues — including rookie and novice leagues — are already underway, but there will be a second session starting in the not-to-distant future. You still have time to sign up for the next session!
We can't wait to see you on the ice! Good curling!
