    Fall Leagues start Sunday November 1st at 2:30 pm and Thursday November 5th at 7:00 pm on Ressler Ice Rink at the Ice Barn. There are 18 teams in each league and there will be 7 games for each team this session. Please show up a little early to your first game to check-in and collect your broom if you purchased one. If you haven't yet registered as a member, you will need to before we will let you onto the ice for league (insurance purposes). The registration page is here.

    Games on Sunday will start at 2:45 pm for the first draw, and 4:40 for the second draw. The schedule is here.

    Games on Thursday will start at 7:15 pm for the first draw, and 9:10 for the second draw. The schedule is here.

    COVID:Wearing of masks will be required whenever not on the ice, this will be fully enforced as not doing so will risk our privilege (and even that of the hockey folks) of using the indoor ice arena. We recommend masks be worn at all times, especially in the house and hacks where people are congregating. We also recommend only using a single sweeper at a time and leave sweeping for the skip in the house.

    LEAGUE RULES: A full list of the club rules including substitution of players during league play is here.

     

    Registration Open!

    The Bozeman Curling Club has opened registration for the 2020 - 2021 season at Ressler Ice Rink. Sunday afternoon and Thursday night leagues are back. The registration page is here.

    We at the BCC are comitted to providing the opportunity to curl while reducing the risk of virus transmission. We will be making suggestions and enforcing rules to reduce risks including:

    Curling practices to reduce risks of transmission:

    • Disenfectant wipes will be provided to wipe down the stones before and after games.
    • Touch brooms instead of shaking hands before and after games.
    • Don't congregate in the house or hacks.
    • Wear masks in the house and hacks.
    • Use only one sweeper at a time, the “second sweeper” can time the rocks if the team wishes.
    • Sweeping in the house is reserved to skips only.
    • Designate one person as the score keeper for the game.

     

    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.

    Last weekend the Bozeman Curling Club hosted teams from our Sunday and Thursday leagues, out fellow Montana clubs, and from Logan, Utah for the 4th Annual Bozspiel. We all hope it was a fun event for everybody that participated, the BCC board and volunteers felt it was another great success, with the only problem being that the vacuum insulated tumblers we purchased for beer mugs did not arrive in time. Have no fear, we have received the mugs they look great and we will get one to everybody that purchased one. The competition started on Friday night with registration, pizza, and beer, and two draws to start us off.

    The event continued Saturday morning with breakfast burritos donated and prepared by Santa Fe Reds (Thank You!). Saturday evening we had a banquet catered by Dickie's BBQ, where we raffled off a number of donated prizes including: a Pro-Bow Viking turned curler Jared Allen autographed jersey, a metal art rainbow trout by Iron Maiden, and a metal art curling stone/broom holder by CJ Verploegen (who also made our 1st place prizes), two pairs of hand crocheted party pants by our own Michelle Ponca, and great prizes from sponsors collected by our dilgent board member Chad Kucera.

    Throughout the weekend we had plenty of beer provided by our beer sponsors including Neptune Brewing, Bridger Brewing, Beehive Brewing, Outlaw Brewing, Madison River Brewing, and Bozeman Brewing. Special shout out to Neptune for donating two very large kegs that made running out of beer impossible.

    The competition ended Sunday with two draws to determine the champions of the different brackets (including the newly inaugerated "Chicken Bracket") with pictures listed below. Thank You All! to the participants and volunteers for making this another great event for the Bozeman Curling Club!
