New Rocks for the RRCC!

After curling for 20 years at the RRCC with rocks from the old curling clubs in Eveleth & Gilbert (that are about 50 years old), it’s time to replace them!

Curl Mesabi has signed a five year, interest free loan with USA Curling to purchase 130 new curling stones (8 sheets + 2 extra). The cost is $72,300. Between $35,000 in a rock replacement fund with the Curl Mesabi Foundation, and selling the current stones for around $20,000, we are well on our way with about $55,000 towards the purchase!

The new rocks will be ready for play in the 2020-2021 season. The Curl Mesabi Board is offering an opportunity to invest in this incredible improvement to our club by having your name or message engraved on the handles of the new rocks. The cost is $200, payable to the Curl Mesabi Foundation.

Three lines of engraving are available with 20 characters per line (INCLUDING spaces). This opportunity is perfect for businesses, families, “in memory of” or if you just want a rock with your name on it! The 1st deadline for purchase is November 11, 2019 – with payment due by that same date. Any handles purchased after Nov 11, 2019 will not be engraved until the next season.

Your engraving is guaranteed for 10 years on the rock handle at Curl Mesabi.  First come, first serve options include sheet number, rock number and color. For more information contact Kelsey at kelsey@gilbertbank.com.
