The PCC has an article about the PCC’s building efforts in the Spring GNCC Newsletter written by Dan Bliss. Look for a similar article by Dan in the upcoming USCA newsletter. Thanks Dan!

Apr 13 Rochester Friendly

It’s our annual one day bus trip to the Rochester Curling Club!

A GREAT way for new curlers (as well as experienced!) to get on real curling ice in a very friendly atmosphere.

We board the bus early (6:30A from RMU, 7:00A from Cranberry) and get to Rochester around 11A.
Everyone plays 2 draws – and the club with the most points wins! We match up teams while we’re on the bus (usually more experienced curlers skip – so you’re in good hands) or you can form your own.

We bring a pot luck lunch (coordinated through Marie) and Rochester supplies the dinner.
Other financial responsibilities include paying for the bus ($55 per adult curler) and buying your opponents beverages should you win your match. In addition we collect a donation as a tip for the bus driver.

Look for info on the glass in Feb. First 32 paid are in!!
