San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is excited to announce that we're officially kicking off our fundraising campaign for a dedicated curling facility in the Bay Area. Our initial goal is to raise $600,000 to build a 4-5 sheet club with all the basics, including ice and refrigeration equipment, warm room, bar, and restrooms. The club is currently planning a number of fundraising events, including viewing parties before and during the Olympics, as well as an auction (start thinking about what you can donate!).
Help us get the word out about curling and the SFBACC! On Saturday, December 14, from 9-10am., we will be demonstrating curling at the Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square. Volunteers are needed for the first ever outdoor curling in San Francisco! We will be demonstrating how the sport is played (demo only, no instruction), and signing folks up for learn-to-curls. Help is also needed to move rocks and prep the ice.
For details or to volunteer, email Alice Mansell at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Come make curling history! SFBACC is celebrating curling and our community with a half-million people at our first San Francisco Pride on Sunday, June 30th. Sponsored in part by the USCA's Darwin Curtis grant, we aim to raise awareness of the sport in the Bay Area and beyond.
All members, family, and friends are welcome. Pride Parade contingents are packed with people who aren't LGBT, but support those who are and celebrate their organization's role in the community. We want Bay Area Curling to be a big and vibrant bunch. The more, the merrier.
We are thrilled to announce that our very own USCA Certified Master Trainer, Wes Seeger, will be holding a set of advanced lessons on Fridays and Saturdays this summer. See inside for details.
Thanks to everyone who made the 2013 Golden Gate Bonspiel fantastic! (We're talking to you, out-of-town teams and volunteers!) Some (but not all) of the photos from this weekend are up on the SFBACC Picasa site. Here are links to three albums. More photos may appear in them at later this week - and more albums are likely to pop up!
