In an attempt for greater exposure.  We will be advertising on a digital bill board (8 seconds every 5 minutes or so for the next few weeks and then again in September till November) on the west side of I-35 just south of the armour exit.   Let us know if you see it or since we can change the image what we should say to grab the publics interest.  Image below is what is presently being displayed

Presidents-Report-GraphicDear KC Curler:

I expect you have seen plenty of e-mails about our current Summer League (Saturdays in July) and our Bonspiel (August 3-5). There is still time to participate in both!

There is a lot going on with the club these days. At the annual meeting held last June, we accomplished several items, including:

  • Elected Board Members and Officers. A list of board members and officers/committee members is attached. We welcome your involvement with any committee that interests you.

  • Discussed goals and ideas for working towards dedicated ice.

  • Planned out the bonspiel including committee assignments.

  • Supported the purchase of a deionization system for water for pebbling.

  • Initiated a T-Shirt design contest.

We have also rented time on a digital billboard on I-29/I-35 near the Bond Bridge so you may see a KC Curling advertisement as you drive by. Our ad runs once approximately every 8 minutes.

The next board meeting is July 9th at 6:30 PM at the Johnson County Library, Cedar Roe Branch (map) next to the Walmart. We welcome your input.

Chris Nazar

Club President

certified-stamp15 curlers in our club took a level I certification program last summer during our bonspiel so they can help facilitate  our "Learn to Curl" program as a volunteer instructor.  Of those Sarah Wruck, Dan White and Kent Herstowski have completed their additional coarse work requirement and are now fully certified.

Based on the Dallas/ Fort Worth Design.  Our club has 4 carts that can move all 80 of our curling stones at once.  That is roughly 900 pounds per part.  The great part is that it eliminates the need to remove the stone from the cart to put in the freezer and then back on a cart to move to the rink.  We only need to lift the rock on and off at the edge of the rink.  Think about that next time you lift 3000lbs of rock.
