At Ignite Portland 9, Bruce Irvin from the Evergreen Curling Club presented on what makes a curling stone curl. Since then, you’ve probably been asking yourself where you can learn to curl.

Your answer has arrived. We’re excited to announce that the Evergreen Curling Club will be holding an open session on Sunday, February 12th, at the Lloyd Center Ice Rink starting at 8:15 pm! All profits from registration fees will go towards the costs of putting on Ignite Portland 10.

You’ll learn everything you need to know about this fun and challenging sport including history, rules, and terminology. Then you’ll get up close and personal with some stones and some brooms out on the ice. After about 45 minutes of learning the basics, the group will play a real game! Spots for this class are limited, so sign up today. All ages are welcome. It’s only $20 per adult and $10 per minor under 21.

This is a great way to support Ignite, and it’s definitely the most fun you can have with a broom! (Note: fancy curling pants are not included. Please supply your own.)
