About the event
$25 per curler
Build a curling team of 4 people, the event is open to Sub-Zero employees as well as friends and family. No children please. Non-curling guests can attend for $10, which includes lunch (guests pay cash at the door).
If you have never curled before, you should arrive at the club by 9:45 AM. At 10:00AM we will go over the rules and have some on ice instruction. We will have sliders for your shoes and club brooms available for sweeping.
The first draw time will be at 11:00AM. You will alternate between being on the ice for 45 minutes and then socializing and watching the other shift curl for 45 minutes. Your team will play two games to determine your cumulative score. Each game will consists of 2 ends that take about 45 minutes. Once you complete your game, it is curling etiquette to sit down with the team you just played to socialize, winners buy the beer. The 6 best teams will qualify for the final event. Beer, hard seltzer, and soda are available for purchase.
We will have loaded nachos for lunch at noon.
If you would like to come up with an original or funny name for your team, we will be happy to add that to the draw sheet (bracket). For example: Wisconsin Cheese Curls or Sweeping Beauties.
Please CARRY IN a clean pair of shoes, soft flat soles work the best. Street shoes are not allowed on the ice. Dress in layers, it is 40° on the ice. Gloves and a hat are optional. A long sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt are usually enough to be comfortable. Wear pants that will allow you to crouch. If you are unable to crouch down for the delivery of the stone, we have a stick you can use to push the stone.
