Another busy Saturday night at the Wendell A. Barwood Arena in Hartford, Vermont. We had two sheets of league play and two sheets of Learn To Curl instruction.
This fall has been a busy time for the club, as we began playing in two arenas– Saturday nights in Hartford, and Sunday nights at the Union Arena in Woodstock, Vermont. Both locations hosted Learn to Curlers this season, giving club members the opportunity to share our love of the sport with new players. In Hartford we launched a new program, Curling University, where Learn to Curl graduates who weren’t ready to jump right into league play could return for additional instruction and practice.
Our winter season starts January 7th and ends on March 12th. We’ll be curling on Saturdays at the Barwood Arena in Hartford, Vermont from 5:30PM to 8PM, and on Sundays at the Union Arena in Woodstock, Vermont from 6:30PM to 9PM. League and social players can choose the night and location that’s most convenient for them.
Later this month we’ll announce our January Learn To Curl dates. For all our latest news, follow us on Facebook (UpperValleyCurling) or Twitter (@uvcurling).
Well, Saturday’s learn to curl at Hartford arena was a big success. Fifty-four people turned out to learn a bit about curling. Thanks to everyone who helped out and thanks to Rita for taking some pictures.
On Sunday night, Team Holt and Team Swanson won their semi-final matches. The two teams will play on the 10th for the winter championship.
Playoffs: In the first playoff round, Team Flanders defeated Team Dugdale for the chance to play the undefeated Holt team on the 30th. Team Swanson emerged victorious from the Swanson/Geer matchup and will play Team Dugdale on December 30th.
Reminder: There is open curling on December 23rd. Teams will be made up that night from all who attend. Put on your Santa hat and join the fun!
Important notice: The winter session starts January 6th with open curling. The following week on January 13th, there will be a “Learn to Curl.” (See info on the right.) League play will start after that.
