Haven't experienced curling yet? This year is your chance... starting this Tuesday January 7, 2014 Curl Troy will once again invade the Ice Rink at RiverScape. This time we will have a 5 Week league for the first time offering return play on the outdoor ice in downtown Dayton.
Come check us out from 6-8 on Tuesday nights, don't wait until the Olympics to catch the curling bug. Come visit us and see what it is all about.
We are hoping in the coming weeks to have Learn to Curl opportunities available during the prime Olympic time period. Don't miss out.
Hopefully you all saw the segment about Curl Troy on Fox 45 on Thursday morning. What a fun time we had with Dan, Meghan & Andrew!
I know some of you have caught the "curling bug" while at Riverscape (or trying to get into Riverscape).
We have some dates and times for curling at Hobart. We are looking at the four Saturday's (3, 10, 17, 24) in March from 5-7pm. On Saturday, March 31 we have 1-3pm available. We are hoping to do a mini-league for the 4 weeks at a total cost of $80 per person. If you are not interested in or not able to do the whole four weeks, please let us know what you are interested in or able to do when you email to sign up and we will work with you to still get you curling. We HAVE to have at least 16 people signed up for the 4 weeks.
The way that we will plan to handle registration is through email. We will work with payments once you have emailed your interest. We are also looking to have payment up front because Hobart is requesting that we pay them up front for our ice time.
No experience is required to join this mini-league. We will try to put everyone into groups that maximizes everyone's ability to learn and have fun. If you have any questions, or wish to sign up for the mini-league please email Stephanie@CurlTroy.org.
Until next time, Good Curling!

We are currently looking for some financial support to assist in making these options affordable.

We are currently negotiating winter ice time with Hobart Arena and should have signup information very soon. We are currently looking at either Friday or Monday evening curling sessions. The more we can prove interest in curling the more likely we will be able to procure good ice times fo get curling time in.
We have acquired 2 sets to stones from various contacts within the Great Lakes Curling Association and will still be able to utilize a set from the Flying Dutchmen in Minster giving us three sheets.
We are also looking into some funding options to help us procure necessary equipment to give everyone the best culring experience we can.
Keep checking back for more information about our curling plans.
Well I missed the weekly update last week, but unfortunately that means that not much really happened. I received a packet of information from the United States Curling Association with alot of information which will be helpful in getting us started up. Myself, along with a few of the other principals have been reading through the information and determining what information is useful as we go forward and what information we should keep for later down the road.
This week I hope to hear back from the U.S. Curling association on aquiring stones though I believe that they are going to tell us that we are going to have to purchase the stones in the long run. This is a major concern to me because I want the organization to be operating in the black in its first year of existance and going into a payment plan with USCA regardless of how good the plan is. We do have some other options for stones and I'll be pursuing those as well but the time has come to move on stone aquisition if we want to be curling this summer.
Another project, and what I would consider the biggest project of the week is the creation of the articles of incorporation, and an initial draft of the by-laws. We have to have articles of incorporation and become a non-profit organization in the State of Ohio in order to apply and become a 501 (C) 3 and be able to accept tax deductable donations. This is also a major step in being able to aquire aid from the Troy Foundation and other charities as they are bound to only give to non-profit entities.
I am also planning on meeting with the people from Hobart Arena to solidify their interest and get some figures on ice time. How much ice time can we get and how much will it cost. After this I can determine how much it is going to cost us individually to curl.
