A couple of schedule reminders — there’s a curling open house at the Hartford arena on Saturday night, Nov. 9, from 6-8 pm.
Also, there’s no curling Sunday night. The next game is Friday, Nov. 15th. We’ll also have curling on Sunday, Nov. 17th.
The schedule and teams page has been updated with the fall teams and match ups.
We’ve had some requests to use the open sheet for practice or even a pickup game, so starting this Sunday, drop-ins are welcome on the spare sheet. If you aren’t able to play regularly right now, this is a great way to keep curling skills sharp and for new players to master the skills.
We had a good start to the season last Sunday with a learn to curl on two sheets and pick up games on the other two sheets. Teams are being set up for the round robin, which starts on Sunday.
Two Woodstock teams traveled to Conway, New Hampshire, this past weekend to compete in the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club’s bonspiel. Both teams played on Sunday and Team Holt won their event, so a good showing by the club!
Planning for our February Pondspiel continues and registrations are now open. Go to the Lake Morey Pondspiel page to download the registration form.
Fall curling will start October 20th with open curling and a learn to curl that night and league play starting the next week. More details will follow, including dates for painting the ice.
Well, the Woodstock teams didn’t bring home any trophies, but we had fun. The Holt team made it into the C event finals. The Flanders team started out with a great win over a tough team, but then struggled a bit after that. One of the highlights was a match between Holt and Dean Mooney from Rutland. Vermont clubs were well represented with two teams from Green Mountain, two from Woodstock, and one from Rutland.
Here are a couple of pictures.
Well, summer curling in Woodstock is done. Four weeks goes by so quickly. It was wonderful to see everyone, including friends, old and new, who joined us from Green Mountain, Rutland, and Petersham curling clubs.
But the good news is that Rutland has ice for a few weeks starting on the 27th, so curling is still available. After that, it will be a long wait until mid-October. Some members are heading for bonspiels though to keep in practice. Two teams will compete in the GNCC Arena Club Championships in August and at least one team plans to head to Conway in September for the Mount Washington Valley bonspiel.
