Member News and Notices

The Men’s Club Championship (Murray Bonspiel) will be held Thursday December 14, Saturday Dec. 16 and Sunday Dec. 17, 2017. The Murray Medal is awarded to the winning rink. This Bonspiel also selects the 6 Utica teams that participate in the Mitchell Bonspiel held here in January. The first five teams qualify through a knockout bonspiel format. The sixth team is drawn out of the hat among the non-qualifying, teams. So every team has a chance of getting into the Mitchell regardless of their performance on the ice. There is a three game guarantee. A team or player can play in the Murray even if they do not plan to play in the Mitchell. The signup sheet is located on the Men’s bulletin board by the Men’s locker room. Any questions see Pat Costello, Mike Platt, Tom Platt, Jr. or Pete
Ciaralli.

Image There are still available spaces for teams in the inaugural Utica Six Sheet Open. Put together a teams composed of any combination of men and women, and enjoy a 4-game guarantee event with a novel format. This event is a great way for former members to enjoy a weekend at the club, or for newer members to get some experience with their 5-and-under teams. Or just plain have fun curling. The event runs Friday afternoon-Sunday morning for a compact, fun filled event. Only $320 per rink. Why not put in a team? Details and entry form.

Looking to practice? A schedule of available times and sheets for practice is posted at the club. Take care to protect the hacks from being struck by rocks, and be careful not to send stones into adjoining sheets in league play. Please replace rocks in nests and mop the sheet when you are done. If you are new to the club, have an experienced member show you how to insert the hacks. Inserting the hacks incorrectly, or forcing them into place, can damage the ice and result in delays or unplayable sheets.
