New Meetup: Curling for the Olympics Event in Austin

From: Paul

Announcing a new Meetup for The San Antonio Hiking & Outdoors Meetup Group!

What: Curling for the Olympics Event in Austin

When: Sunday, March 7,[masked]:30 AM

Chaparral Ice
2525 Anderson Lane
Austin, TX 78752

From Kathy, our Curling Canadian Hiker.

They are having an open house for curling on Feb 28 and March 7 and I asked the president if they would be interested in having it posted on the web-site in San Antonio as an event. They were very keen on this. I would plan to go on both of these dates. I don't need to be the event leader- but am certainly happy to be the contact person, so it doesn't matter to me who posts it.

Let me know if you might be interested in this as an event on these two dates! I will be happy to review any details with you.

Dear LSCC Members,

As you may be aware, the Winter Olympics will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia in February. Curling should receive good television coverage during the games, so we anticipate there will be renewed interest in our sport. The club will be holding 2 open house sessions, on Feb. 28 and March 7, during our regular curling times. So on those two Sundays, no regular league curling sessions will be held.

However, we encourage all of you to come out and help with these open house sessions. We anticipate a large turnout, so everyone?s help will be needed. Our curling club formed as a result of two open houses held after the 2006 Olympics, where between 75 to 100 people attended. Also, please talk up these sessions to your friends, co-workers and acquaintances.

If there is sufficient interest, our goal is to hold an ?Olympic? league during April and May. This will be an instructional league, designed for new curlers to gain experience with our sport. Existing members could also participate in the league to assist with training of new curlers. More details on this will be coming as we ascertain the level of interest after the Open House sessions.

Our goal is to continue to expand our club membership. Wouldn?t it be great if we had enough curlers next season to start holding two draws a week!! I think our club has done very well in its first four seasons, and I want the club to continue to provide fun, recreation & fellowship through curling.

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions. See you on the Ice!!

Wayne Garman
LSCC President
