Upcoming Events

Established in 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is the oldest arena curling club in the United States. SFBACC is a nationally-recognized leader in curling development, providing learning opportunities, youth scholarships, competitive development, recreational leagues, corporate and private events, and more. We have already taught thousands of Bay Area residents to curl in 2014. Now, we are raising funds to build a dedicated curling center right here in the Bay Area so that we can take these programs to the next level. Will you join us?

Dedicated Ice Committee Update

The Dedicated Ice Committee is currently working on several key components to determine if the Diablo Avenue building in Hayward is a viable location for our club’s dedicate ice facility. To start things off, they would like to share the scope of their work with the club members.
Here is what our DI Committee has been up to this week:
-They sent out a RFP to 3 vendors for ice making equipment. We should soon see a write-up of the equipment we need to buy and prices.

The Time Is Now

Dear Fellow Curlers, Members, and Friends of Curling,

Since 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club has been bringing the excitement of curling to California. The club has responded to many challenges and achieved many successes over the past 55 years. Now it is about to undertake the largest project in its history: the dream of a Curling Center with ice dedicated to the sport we all so enjoy and love.

We, the undersigned, are long-time members of SFBACC and have been curling longer than we care to say. We believe SFBACC is ready to take on this huge undertaking, and this effort has our full support.

Update: Finding a Location, Part 2

Hayward exteriorWarp speed-like progress... after touring the 5 potential sites last Wednesday, we quickly whittled it down to 2 locations, 1 in San Leandro and 1 in Hayward. Then a larger group (a few construction/engineers types) went to check these 2 locations again on Saturday with an eye for what would work best.

Update: Finding a Location

Hi everyone! This is the first of many frequent posts updating you on what's happening with Dedicated Ice (DI). We're hoping to post frequent updates on our progress as we get closer to building out a facility.

Members of the DI committee have been working with a Commercial Real Estate Broker (Cushman Wakefield) to help us find a suitable building somewhere between Oakland and Fremont. In December we started with a list of 42 properties. After reviewing the list with the broker and offering our feedback (too big, too small, wrong configuration, not close enough to public transportation, etc.), the broker created a short list of 11 properties — 2 in Oakland, 5 in San Leandro, and 3 in Hayward.

SFBACC on NBC... again!

Thank you, NBC and reporter, Bob Redell, for your continued support of curling!
