A special request from one of our members …

Hello Curling Friends, This year, I’ll be participating in a very special event called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in Philadelphia on Oct. 14, 15, and 16. I’ll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men.
Net proceeds from the 3-Day for the Cure fund innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment.
Virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 28 years has been impacted by a Komen for the Cure grant.

I’ve agreed to raise at least $2,300 in donations, so I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation? Keep in mind how far I’m walking – and how hard I’ll have to train. Continue reading

Leaders earn walk-over win to stay top of the standings

Tuesday couldn’t have gone any easier for Stacey feat. The Ice Techs. The undefeated leaders at Summerspiel earned a forfeit victory over a mostly-absent Happy Hour crew to move to 4-0 at the summer tournament.

Team Binghamton had one of its best nights on the ice in disposing of Team Piatt, 8-1, on Sheet 2. The win keeps the team within reach of first place with a draw against the leaders this Tuesday. A win in that game would force a two-way tie for first place at Summerspiel.

On Sheet 3, Platoon earned its second consecutive win of Summerspiel by defeating Cracked Ice.

In the first-ever draw on Sheet 4 at Anthracite Curling Club, Squirrels earned a 4-3 win over Bitter End, keeping the team alive for a first-place finish at Summerspiel. If Binghamton defeats SfIT on Tuesday and Squirrels wins it final draw, there will be a three-way tie for first place.
