February 21, 2013 kicks off the first draw of the GNCC Mixed Curling Championship and the Plainfield Curling Club is honored to be hosting this year’s event! This 7-team round-robin competition (including several of our own PCC members!) will determine the top 2 teams representing the Grand National Curling Club at the 2013 US Mixed Nationals in Wilmar, MN March 16-23, 2013.
Even if not competing, this is a very exciting opportunity to watch some high level mixed-team competition at our club! A Mixed Curling Team consists of two men and two women and the throwing order must alternate genders. All rules and requirements are described in the 2012-2013 USCA Championship Rules Booklet [PDF] provided by USA Curling.

New York Times blogger Deb Amlen recently accepted our invitation to spend two hours learning the basics of curling and running up and down our ice as friendly payback for poking a little fun at the sport in an earlier column. But now she’s changed her mind! In her follow-up story, Swept Away: My Day on the Hog Line, she writes, “I had more fun than I’ve had in a long time and I can tell you this: Curling rocks. Curling is gangsta.”
