Interested in learning more about opportunities for curlers to compete at the national level? Sam Williams, Chair of Grassroots Competitions, will discuss the growing number of championship events available to curlers across the country in a webinar scheduled for Wednesday, November 12th. He will also be able to answer your questions about recent developments in the rules. In addition, Shelley Dropkin, past president of the United States Women’s Curling Association, will discuss developmental programs offered by the USWCA.
