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.

Cracked Ice, Team Piatt get into Win column at ACC Summerspiel

Can you name the shade of red on the handles of our new stones? It’s obviously just not red. Like red red. It’s like crimson, but not really crimson.

Here are results from the latest round of Summerspiel on Tues., Aug. 16. Continue reading

Summerspiel continues on Tuesday

It’s Day 4 of Summerspiel and it’s the final day in which just three draws will be held during a two-hour curling session at Anthracite Curling Club.

Late last week, our shipment of three sets of stones arrived from Brooks Curling Club in Alberta, Canada, and after the final two teams take their Bye weeks in Summerspiel this week, we’ll be playing four draws at the same time in Club history.

That shouldn’t downplay the excitement on the ice for Tuesday’s three draws. Two teams with wins in their first two games will be looking to keep pace with the tournament’s overall leaders while four teams will be looking for their first win at Summerspiel. Continue reading
