The Columbus Curling Club closed out its season on April 20 with its Annual Meeting.
Members and their friends can take part in various summer social activities that will include a Clippers game, King Arthur at Shiller Park, an outing at Scioto Downs (with some tutoring on wagers) and a Columbus Crew game. There will also be Happy Hour outings once a month at various establishments and many members are playing in a summer kickball league.
If you are looking to take a learn to curl clinic, you can register here to be notified when we add more clinics. We will start making ice again in September and will reopen in October when we will kick the year off with more clinics.
If you are interested in private corporate outings, you will find more information here. We will be able to host events when we reopen in the fall.
We also have various sponsorship and advertising opportunities. To learn more about these, please email the

The curling season is wrapping up in Columbus and we will soon be melting the ice. We are no longer taking private learn to curl outing requests for this season.

A common desire amongst our membership is to move into a dedicated facility that we own. We currently play in leased warehouse space, which is much better than renting arena ice, but it does have its limitations. A quest for a new club is a long term goal, but until we complete a business plan to accomplish this goal, no spending has been approved to market a fundraising campaign. In other words, we want to approach this task responsibly.
To achieve that, we must continue to develop our programs. Our ice is very underutilized during the day and greater use will be required to support a new club. Additional programs have to be developed now so that they are in place to operate and maintain a facility we will own.
With these requirements in place, we certainly will not turn down any money people wish to contribute to a building fund. We already have had one donation specifically to this. We estimate in the current market that we will need to raise $150,000 for a down payment and other costs to move into a purchased renovated building. We have therefore set this as our current goal.
If you would like to donate to this cause, click on the Donations tab under the Fundraising menu item. If you would like your donation to specifically go to the building fund, please note that in your letter or email us if you donate online.

We raise more than $2,000 each year through the generous Kroger Community Rewards program. Less than one quarter of our members have their Kroger shopping cards registered in the program however. We could raise almost $10,000 a year. Members also have to re-register their card every April to remain in the program. Please keep the revenue coming in by registering at Kroger Cares. Thank you!!
