The U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship is in progress December 3-6, 2009 at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle. SFBACC's own Gabrielle Coleman and Barry Ivy participated, starting out with two victories but unfortunately ending up with two wins and three losses, out of the playoffs.
Follow the action at the Granite Curling Club's website.
Here's the video you've all been waiting for: Vernon Davis curling with the SFBACC!
And again, many thanks to Vernon Davis, the 49ers, AP videographer, Haven Daley, and everyone else who organized and participated in this!
**NEW TIME - Meeting at 7:30, party at 8:30, curling at 9:30***
We've got a big day on Tuesday, December 15 in San Jose - we'll have an all-club meeting starting at 7 pm, a party with Sharks Ice employees, and we'll teach the Sharks staff to curl from 9:30-11:30 pm. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend all of these events! For the meeting, we'll most likely be in the small conference room near the pool table in Stanley's.
Granite is still looking for help with the Mixed Doubles Nat'l Championships Dec 3-6. Totally new and inexperienced folks are welcome! Here's the email from head official, Joe Roberts:
In an effort to build community and communication in the region - a MoPac discussion group has been started. This is a place to go to get more information about our regional bonspiels and playdowns and to ask questions and stay informed about MoPac issues. Please join!
This is designed for Granite members, but they may be willing to take interested SFBACC members. Here's the GCC email:
On Sunday, November 15th we will be conducting a Level I and II officiating clinic to train new (and refresh current) officials on everything you need to know to officiate at a USCA curling event. This is also a great opportunity for new curlers to learn the ins-and-outs of the rules of curling.
Thank you to everyone who voted! The results are in and Jacket 1 in orange was the clear winner. (Jacket 4 was the runner-up.) Lyle and I will start working with embroiderers soon to get a sample made to be sure that the design and text will look ok. We certainly hope to use the design from Jacket 1, but, should the design not translate well to embroidery for some reason, we'll use the desing from Jacket 4.
Here's the winning look:
