No, we're not starting a Naked Curling League—no one wants to see curlers naked (ok, maybe a few...). But if we gave you a chuckle please consider a small donation to our Dedicated Ice Initiative so we can spread the love of curling to a larger Bay Area community, expand our junior program, and increase opportunities for our recreational and competitive curlers. Thank
We have received an approved Conditional Use Permit from the City of Oakland, meaning we are approved to use the building as a Curling Club, and are working on the full Construction Drawing Set to submit to the City of Oakland for the Building Permit. As part of the design process we have been assessing a number of refrigeration and ice floor options to ensure we have the most effective and economical design for a Curling Club in the Bay Area climate. As there aren't any...

We owe a huge thanks to our friends at Novel Brewing Company for hosting a heck of an Olympic curling watch party and Dedicated Ice fundraiser over the weekend. We were floored by the number of folks who came out to watch some curling with us, kick a few kegs for the cause, and cheer on Team USA. Not only did we get the big win over Canada, but our celebration apparently impressed the NBC Olympics team

Hello Curlers! First of all, we want to thank each and every one of you for your support recently, and we hope you had as wonderful a Holiday Season as we did. We've been working hard over the last couple months on the Dedicated Ice effort and would like to update everyone on what we've been working on. At this point, we have received verbal approval of our Conditional Use Permit (CUP) from our Reviewing Planner at the City of Oakland, and are just waiting on formal...

SFBACC, you rock. Thanks to all our curlers, friends, family, and volunteers who made last weekend's Non-spiel fundraiser a huge success. We raised over $4,000 for our buildout, and more importantly, it felt like a curling club as we watched the Olympic trials, played a few (non-curling) games, and enjoyed some good food, drink, and music. Thanks to our friends at Novel Brewing Company who donated kegs to the cause, as well as the about 2 dozen members who donated their...
