WHEN TO CURL?

"Normal" curling schedule

In season (that's winter and the surrounding months...August or September through March or April), we curl most Sundays 6:00-8:00pm. But the specifics can vary a bit, so stay tuned to our calendar! Your first time curling has to be at a learn-to-curl event; we hold about one of those each month.

Learn-to-curl February 19

We'll be having a learn-to-curl on Sunday, February 19, 5:30-8:00pm. Spread the word!

League curling starts February 26

One week after our learn-to-curl, we'll begin our next league. That means that you really want to get out there and curl on February 19 to prepare yourself, and it also means that you need to start figuring out who's on your team!

What to bring?

Warm, comfortable clothes, rubber soled shoes,

and your senses of adventure and humor

Curling tip

Throwing accurately can be tough! And it's important; if you don't throw your stones in the direction that your skip wants them to go, you're not likely to win many games.

I suggest the following steps to help you throw accurately (to throw "on broom"):

  1. Wait until your skip puts the brush head down on the ice and stops moving it around. You now have your target: it's that immobile brush head.
  2. When you get in the hack, you need to be facing that target! Make sure your hips are square to the target.
  3. Draw an imaginary line from your hack foot to your target. Note where your imaginary line intersects the tee line (the short line that goes through the center of the house).
  4. When you push off from the hack, you want to slide through that intersection point! First the center of the stone, and then your gliding foot, and then your trailing foot should all pass more or less through that point. That means that you and the stone are sliding toward your target. And it implies that the stone is pretty much lined up with both of your feet; if you're holding the stone way off to one side of your gliding foot, then it's probably not going to go where you want it to go.
  5. When you release your stone, it should continue merrily sliding straight toward your target. At some point, its rotation (remember that when you release your stone, you give it some gentle rotation!) will cause it to curve away from your target and right toward where your skip really wanted the stone to go.

In steps 2, 4, and 5, it's really easy to get focused on the center line (the long line going all the way down the ice through the center of the sheet). If you do that, then you'll be facing down the center line and/or sliding down the center line and/or releasing along the center line—and most likely none of those are what you want. I tell a lot of novice curlers that their toughest job is to ignore the center line.

Good curling,

Ray
