History 1958 - 2006

This section is a work in progress. We're still trying to reconstruct California's competitive curling history - just because there is no listing for a particular year, does not mean there were no teams, etc.


1958

March 13, 1958 - The San Francisco Curling Club is formed and begins curling at the Bel-Arena Ice rink in Belmont, CA.

(date not currently known) The club moves to a dedicated facility in Mountain View, the Peninsula Curling Rink. (unconfirmed: The club was built on land that was on loan from a member. At some point, that person needed to sell the land. The club planned to build a new dedicated facility, but were unsuccessful.)
