Come on out Saturday July 26 and learn about doubles! Resident doubles expert and national-level competitor, Barry Ivy, will give a mini clinic on the rules and strategy of doubles curling. The short clinic will conclude with enough ice time to play a full game of doubles! League experience required.
Learn how to teach learn-to-curl clinics and lessons during this day-long course. No prior instructing experience required (beginner curlers welcome!). Completion of course requirements will confer USCA Level 1 Instructor certification. This course is open to curlers from all USCA member clubs. Registration for this course run through the USCA.
Saturday August 23, 9am-5pm (lunch provided)
The USCA has changed its Level 1 Instructor course curriculum, requiring new certification of existing Level 1 instructors. This is an abbreviated version of the full Level 1 Instructor course, open to those with EXISTING Level 1 certification. Successful completion of this course will be registered with the USCA and will ensure you have an up to date Level 1 certification.
Registration for summer leagues is now closed.
Our club has the amazing opportunity to once again participate in the 2014 San Francisco Pride Parade on Sunday, June 29th. Let's celebrate our love of curling with over a million people from around the Bay Area, the US and the world. We welcome and encourage all members as well as their family and friends to join us in "sweeping" down Market St. during the 2014 parade. SFBACC will not have a booth this year - just a great march down Market - so we're hoping we can have an even bigger marching contingent!
We've posted an update to the Dedicated Ice Blog. Take a look! www.dedicatedice.com/blog
It has been a busy couple of weeks since we announced plans to move forward with a dedicated curling facility in California, and the excitement is building. We've already raised more than $115,000 toward our $600,000 goal.
Today we're announcing a brand new website at dedicatedice.com, which we plan to grow into a great destination for our members and donors. This site is dedicated to providing information about our club's programs and the latest developments on dedicated ice.
Along with this, we're also pleased to roll out our fundraising rewards program, which lets us recognize your generosity witha variety of Thank You gifts. Check it out!
The Golden Gate Bonspiel Committee is getting excited as our 2014 bonspiel approaches.
As of right now, we have a full slate of out-of-town teams and need only 1 more local team to round out our 32-team bracket! We especially want to encourage our newest curlers to participate in their first bonspiel, so please invite them to sign up (as teams or individuals) when you see them!
As always, putting on a great 3-day bonspiel is an expensive undertaking, and we count on a few fundraising efforts at the bonspiel to reach our financial goals. To that end, we need your help to put together some great gift baskets for raffle as well as silent auction items and gift cards ($5 and up) for other games & activities.
•LETTER OF INTENT We received the owner’s response to our Letter of Intent (LOI) on 3/17. We immediately turned around our response by the end of that week (3/21). As it appears to take them a few weeks to reply, we expect to hear back in the next week or two. Next steps are to have an in person meeting. To characterize the main discussion points:
*Rent/rent abatement/lease commencement - Our objective is to take possession as soon as we are ready (city approves our application and we have enough $ in the bank), but not pay any rent until we are open for curling.
