The club curling team is putting up some impressive stats so far this season. Over 20 members have curled, 7 of which are brand new members. The next two Fridays we are facing UIndy at the Fuel Tank. We also have a fundraiser coming up at Chipotle on November 6th.
On Friday, 10 members of the club curling team had their first practice! In our scrimmage, the red team beat the yellow team 6-3. Our four new members have promising talent. Can’t wait to start league games against Purdue, UIndy, and Carmel High School.
With block party over and school now in session, we are excited to announce that our roster has grown by 133%. Wow! Can’t wait for curling to start up again in September!
This season has been AMAZING! I couldn’t have asked to curl with a better group of people! Ending the year with over 30 members and already getting emails from people who want to join the team next year is so beyond exciting. I wish the next president and exec team the best of luck as they take on their new leadership roles!
What a great season! All of our new members know the rules of curling and have been doing great out on the ice! Now it’s time to take a short break before we enter Circle City Curling Club’s bracket. Perfect timing too! The winter Olympics are on, with 3 USA teams.
Below are pictures of a recent game and some of our members who participated in raising money for Riley Childen’s Hospital at Butler University’s Dance Marathon.
Curling 101 is done for all 30 of our new members! It’s time to start up the season!
We’re about to start up our new season with a wopping 30 members – the most we’ve had in years! Our first curling 101 sessions will be tomorrow! Past this, we can expect 3 or 4 more Curling 101 sessions on September 28th, October 5th, and possibly October 12th. If anyone is still interested in joining, email us, and we can give you more information!
Looking forward to this fall semester season, and hope to see you all on the ice!
I just wanted to say how fantastic this fall season has been. I’ve been so impressed with not only how many new members we’ve gained this year, but also the level of enthusiasm this Freshman class has shown for our club. As the fall semester draws to a close, we’re looking toward the spring. I’m keeping my eye out for bonspiels next semester, and I’m still trying to coordinate hosting our own in Fort Wayne after we come back from break.
Thanks for a fantastic fall semester, best luck on your finals, and happy holidays!
Two weeks ago, we finished out our spring season with Circle City Curling at the Arctic Zone in Westfield. While we may not have finished in the position we would liked to, our members played hard week in and week out.
We were also able to get quite a bit of practice and experience in for new club members this season due to the high number of people volunteering to play in the weekly games.
As we look toward the Fall of 2016, we’re currently planning to host our Butler Bonspiel at Fort Wayne Curling Club sometime around October/November.
Butler just finished our last events for the Fall semester: we played our last game with Circle City Curling this week and we sent a team to Rice Lake, WI for a university bonspiel.
Next semester, we’re going to start up our Spring season with Circle City and we’ll be prepping for a university bonspiel hosted by us!
