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.
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.
Warp 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.
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.
Thank you, NBC and reporter, Bob Redell, for your continued support of curling!
And thank you to all our volunteers, including organizer, Alice Mansell, for making this happen!
On Monday, January 6, from 10-11:30am we will be demonstrating curling at Downtown Ice in San Jose. Help us get the word out about curling and the SFBACC! We will be demonstrating how the sport is played (demo only, no instruction), and signing folks up for learn-to-curls. Volunteers needed!
For details or to volunteer, email Alice Mansell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
