In conjunction with the Greenville County Recreation department and The Pavilion, the Palmetto Curling club will be hosting a Learn to Curl public event on February 3rd. Please email us at email@example.com for more information or in order to be contacted once signups for this event are setup.
Signups for our fall league and sublist end this Friday 9/26/2014. Play begins October 7 and goes through January, taking breaks for the holiday weeks. We will have two draws each Tuesday. Each team will play once a night.
A team of three PCC members competed in the inaugural Rock Around the Clock All Night Bonspiel hosted by the Curling Club of Virginia in Richmond, VA. The bonspiel began at 8pm Saturday evening and concluded with the final draw at 10:30 am the following morning.
The PCC team was skipped by Ryan Smith, vice-skip was Kurt Wagner, second position was played by a Richmond member David Smith, and the lead was Brian Steadman. The team won their first two draws, 12-0 and 7-5 landing them in the A-Event finals. The finals were a tight match but the team fell 4-8 against a team from the home club.
Congratulations to the team for their achievement.

We had two teams representing the club; the men’s team: Daniel Fort, Ryan Smith, Matthew Jones and Kurt Wagner. The women’s team was Anne Wiggins, Nicole Plante, Sherri Odlevak and Lisa Cobb.
WOW what a fun experience! It feels so good to play and actually be able to apply strategy to your game on excellent curling ice. I think that the biggest challenge for us was to find the right weight to throw because the ice was so much faster than our home rink.
Believe me, it is a fantastic feeling to see your rock do exactly what the skip is asking you to do. That is when I realized what an exciting sport curling is. I learned a lot on strategy watching the other games and listening to the comments of the people around me.
Everybody is so enthusiastic and so friendly at this event that you become part of the great curling family. You feel welcomed the minute you enter the arena.
In conclusion, I would encourage everybody to go to a bonspiel and live the exciting experience of curling!
