The Bozeman Curling Club is excited to be organizing a special Bonspiel event open to any MT curler at the Williston Basin Curling Club in Williston, ND the weekend of November 19th - 20th, 2021.

    With no dedicated curling ice in the state of Montana, the Williston Basin Curling Club is lending the use of their dedicated ice and opening their bar that weekend so that Montana based curlers can have a chance to curl on real dedicated ice.

    This will be an exclusive Bonspiel event. The event will be limited to 64 curlers (individuals, teams, and partial teams are welcome to register). Register Here

    A nominal charge of $25 per individual will cover catering and trophies for the winning team. To make transportation simple, we are chartering a bus to leave Bozeman the morning of Friday Nov. 19th returning Sunday evening (we'll stop in Billings for any Billings curlers). Round-trip charge for the bus will be $120 per individual which allows the consumption of alchohol on the bus and also covers per diem for the bus driver.

    If you have never had a chance to curl on dedicated ice, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

    We have also reserved a block of rooms at the Microtel Suites hotel in Williston for $79 per night. Please reference the Bozeman Curling Club when making your reservation to get the group rate.

    The Bozeman Curling Club held a two-day tournament to choose out league champions on March 6th and 7th. The competition was very high with some extremely competitive semi-final games. Yet, in the end The Sharpshooters, won out against Blackbull in the final. In the 3/4 final the Button Blasters won out against the strong competition of The Curling Irons. Thanks everybody for their participation and we all had a good time. Look for updates from the BCC on next year's leagues and events. If you enjoyed this tournament, the Billings Curling Club will be holding their Bonspiel April 30 - May 2nd as part of the Big Sky State games.

    The good news about the end of the Bozeman Curling Club season was that we finished up all our planned league games and events before the COVID-19 pandemic shut downs occurred. The bad news was that the heart of the MT Bonspiel season with the Missoula Big Sky Bonspiel the Billing's Big Sky State Games Bonspiel were canceled so curling will have to wait for the Fall.

    At this point we are planning for a normal Bozeman Curling Club leagues at Ressler starting in November 2020 and continuing into March 2021. We have listened to our members and we are planning a more competitive season with full tracking of scores and a league play down. Please look back here for updates and the opening of registration for the Fall and Winter 2020/2021 season.

    If you have suggestions for our planning please email us at [email protected].

     

    On the morning of Friday January, 31st the Bozeman Curling Club gave a Learn to Curl for the students of LaMotte School. LaMotte is a small K-8 country school on Bear Canyon road without gymnasium facilities, but has a great parents/school supported and maintained ice rink. PE Teacher Mark Aamot reached out to the club looking for ways to add curling to the life-long activity section for his students, and we were happy to provide a youth Learn to Curl activity. Boardmembers Joel Boehnke, Chad Kucera, Zeb Barber, and Garrett Turner brought equipment and stones to the LaMotte rink and instructed over 40 students from the 2nd - 8th grades. The students were introduced to curling, given brief instruction, and had the opportunity to throw real curling rocks on the ice in the form of some simple games. We all had a great time, and the club volunteers were energized by the excitement and enthusiasm of the great students and teachers of LaMotte School.

    If you are a school or run a youth organization and would like to explore youth curling opportunities to help us fulfill our mission of expanding curling in the Bozeman area, please email [email protected] with your information and request.

    With our sucessful 2018-2019 season, the Bozeman Curling Club board decided it was time to invest in new set of stones to replace the older metal handled stones that we purchased from Bozeman Parks and Rec. Those stones were intended for outdoor use and were somewhat mismatched (if you played leage on Sheet 1 you should have noticed the two black stones that were noticeably different and slower than the other stones in the set).

    Once the decision was made, Ryan Anderson negotiated a deal with George of Philips Stone and Rink Supply (formerly Dakota Curling Supplies) of Langdon, ND to trade in these old rocks for stones of beautiful Red Trefor granite quarried in Wales + new handles (Olympic Red and Yellow) with markings of sheet and number. The new stones were lightly used by their former owners, which was a club in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    To get the stones here, Ryan and Pat Anderson loaded the 1344 lbs of the old rocks, hauling them to Langon, ND and hauled back the new rocks for an 1800 mile, 4 day round trip. We all need to give Ryan and Pat a hearty cheer of thanks. Thanks!

    The price of the new stones was $366 ea  + diesel, but we were able to get $200 ea for the old stones and handles, so the final cost to the club is very reasonable.

    I am sure we are all looking forward to playing with our new stones this coming fall season. League starts on the first Sunday in November!

    The Bozeman Curling Club is open to all people who are interested in the sport of curling. Our objectives are to promote and support curling in Bozeman and the surrounding area, to establish and maintain regular play, and to have a lot of fun at all times.
