Eisenman Eight Ender!!!
Team Eisenman scored the first eight ender in the history of the Copper Country Curling Club on Saturday, 3/8/2014. The feat took place in the 2nd end of the Tuesday League Championship Game.
Eisenman had seven stones in the house and Team Strome had an open hit and stick for one, however the shot over curled and knocked in an Eisenman stone for a steal of eight! The six foot biter stick was needed to check the distance on one of the stones.
The Eisenman team consisted of: Paul Eisenman (skip), Walt Milligan (third), Katie Jo Wright (second) and Dan Fuhrmann (lead). (Katie Joe and Dan were subbing for Jeanmarie and Shawn Hagan)
Information will be submitted to the Curling News and each player will each receive an extremely rare Eight Ender patch!

Olympic Open Houses

Watched curling on TV and wanted to give it a try? The Copper Country Curling Club is having an Olympic open house where you can try your hand at curling. No special equipment needed. You will need to dress warm (jacket, hat, gloves) and bring athletic shoes (tennis shoes, sneakers, but NO BOOTS). We will demonstrate curling technique, answer any questions, and let you try your hand and throwing stones.
Curling Season Starting Soon- Open House Schedule Announced
The houses are in place, and ice is being added daily. Its almost time to start curling., I want to thank everyone who helped improve the facility over the summer. A lot of work was done by a special group of individuals who have worked hard to get the building even more weather tight and put new side boards into place along the ice. We raised our dues a few years back so we could do this work, and the benefits are starting to show. Special thanks go out to Gary, Barry, Gerry, Noel, and Steve, for their continuing work.
Tuesday, December 10- 7:00-9:00pm Open House/Learn to Curl/Individual Registration at the Drill House.
Thursday, December 12- 7:00-9:00pm Open House/Learn to Curl/Individual Registration at the Drill House.
