Upcoming Events

Established in 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is the oldest arena curling club in the United States. SFBACC is a nationally-recognized leader in curling development, providing learning opportunities, youth scholarships, competitive development, recreational leagues, corporate and private events, and more. We have already taught thousands of Bay Area residents to curl in 2014.

Now, we are raising funds to build a dedicated curling center right here in the Bay Area so that we can take these programs to the next level. But we can't do it without your support. Please join us and make your tax-deductible gift today: DONATE NOW!

Letter of Intent Summary

The Dedicated Ice Committee, in cooperation with our real estate agent, has prepared a Letter of Intent to be supplied to the owner of the facility at 3121 Diablo Avenue, Hayward, CA. This Letter is only a proposal to negotiate the terms of a potential lease agreement, and is neither an offer nor a contract. Note these terms represent what SFBACC is asking, and there will be some give and take in our discussions with the owner.

Dedicated Ice Business Plan

Dear Members,

The Dedicated Ice Committee is pleased to present our business plan, which you can find at www.bayareacurling.com/di-business-plan. This document provides a description of SFBACC today, a vision for how dedicated ice can and will benefit SFBACC, and the requirements for building a dedicated curling facility. The document includes a pro forma operating budget, but since its production, the finance committee has compiled a draft report detailing the assumptions and calculations used to project annual operating balance sheets for a dedicated ice facility in Hayward. Furthermore, it provides some analysis and comparisons to the current state of SFBACC as a Sharks Ice customer. You can find this document at www.bayareacurling.com/di-business-plan as well. Note that both documents are in draft form for your review, so please excuse any typos or errors.

Dedicated Ice Discussion, San Jose: Tuesday Feb 18 at 7:30 P.M.

With apologies for the short notice, we would like to offer to hold an informal discussion around the Dedicated Ice initiative this Tuesday (Feb 18) at 7:30 p.m. at Sharks Ice, San Jose. A specific location has not been determined; however it will likely be held in one of the conference rooms. We can all rendezvous at Stanley's and take it from there.

Ah, paperwork.

Alright, curlers, here's the latest on Dedicated Ice:

We've been working on preparing a Letter of Intent for a lease to the proposed Hayward property located at 3121 Diablo Ave. This document represents a non-binding agreement between the landlord and the tenant (SFBACC) outlying the commercial terms. We expect it will be ready to be sent out this Friday (today), and expect to hear back from the landlord by the end of next week. This document will form the starting point for further lease-related negotiations.
