San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is excited to announce that we’re officially kicking off our fundraising campaign for a dedicated curling facility in the Bay Area. Our initial goal is to raise $600,000 to build a 4-5 sheet club with all the basics, including ice and refrigeration equipment, warm room, bar, and restrooms. The club is currently planning a number of fundraising events, including viewing parties before and during the Olympics, as well as an auction (start thinking about what you can donate!). We’ll also be reaching out to all members, as well as corporate partners, for cash and in-kind donations. The goal is to hit our fundraising target no later than mid-summer 2014 and be curling on dedicated ice by next Fall! You can track our progress here on our website. We have also commenced looking for candidate sites between Oakland and Fremont and anticipate signing a lease in the next 3-4 months. So save those pennies and lend a hand: dedicated ice is coming!
