Open Houses Were Well Attended
The Two Open Houses that Curl Mesabi held on Monday, Nov. 16 and Tuesday, Nov. 17 were well attended. The people that tried out curling for the first time enjoyed themselves. It looks like several joined or are thinking about joining a league. One group of 4 women are forming a team and will curl in the Monday Women’s league. Jim Newman has agreed to be their Coach. Please welcome the new curlers to our club and help them get started. Thanks to all instructors and volunteers that made the open houses a success.
The Senior League and the 4:30 PM Open Leagues started Monday Nov. 16 and Tuesday Nov. 17. . The Leagues scheduled for Wednesday’s and Thursday’s started Nov 18 and 19. Because of the Open Houses the Monday Women’s League, the Tuesday 2 on 2 League and The Tuesday 6:30 PM league will not start until Monday and Tuesday of the following week
The volunteers needed to help with the Curling Night in America event has been determined. We will need greeters, drivers, timers, scorekeepers, kitchen help, cleanup help, pro-shop coverage, and arena setup and take down assistance. Help will be needed mainly Wed Dec 2 through Sunday Dec 6. The event will be recorded on Thursday through Saturday by World Curling TV for broadcast on NBC Sports in nine 2 hour broadcasts on Fridays in January and February. The event will also be broadcast to other parts of the world by World Curling TV. The teams competing will be from Japan, China, Scotland and the United States.

NEW Tuesday Night League
The season is almost here and this year the club will be offering a new league with a new concept on Tuesday nights. It will be open to all Men, Women, Juniors, and Seniors (members and non-members). Anyone can play on any given Tuesday at 6:30pm and we’ll select new teams every week by drawing names out of a hat then play a 6 end match. Members will play for free and non-members will pay a weekly fee of $5. The focus on this league will be a few things. First, it’s a way for people to curl that can’t always commit to a team on a night every single week; and second, it will allow new members a way to be in a league and meet other members and form connections for the future which will help build our membership base. It’s also a way for veteran members to get an extra night of practice. Please come out and give it a try.
The first night will be TUESDAY November 24th.
Major Maintenance Items Completed
During the Curling Off Season the Ice Plant Condenser was replaced thanks to the efforts of Gordy Dahl. The Arena Heating Burners were also changed out thanks to the efforts of Mike Manick and Gordy Dahl.
