Here it is... the first opportunity of the year... if you can't make it... no worries... we'll do it again...

The Release

The date is: Sunday, November 4, 2007.
The time is: 8pm-10pm (no whining, take a nap)
The location is: The Duluth Curling Club

I will post more details later... however, to be included, you MUST RSVP here, within this thread...

...rtn

MORE DETAILS

*) Clean shoes required - CLEAN a pair of shoes in your bathtub or other... CARRY them with you when we meet at the curling club. Dirt kills the ice, and we will be specifically uninvited if we drag a bunch of dirt onto the ice

*) Wear comfortable cloths... imagine doing the splits... can you do it in super tight jeans?

*) Curling is an active sport... but we are standing on a sheet of ice. Dress in layers is probably a good plan.

*) Where is it? Driving directions

I'm planning to be there. I've always wanted to try curling. And I am really hoping to get photos of some of you wiping out. ;-)

I would come, but i am carless this wekend, :(
admin
Do you want a ride, Edge? No need for you to stay home when I or one of us can pick you up.

I even still have the duct tape on the bottom of one of my sneakers from the last time I curled with them. I might be there, depending how the hunt goes.

a ride would be fabulous, I can get down there easy enough via the bus, but Sunday buses stop early so if anyone doesn't mind shuttling me back up I'd be grateful and present.

oh... fyi... for you folks that have tried curling in the past... and have duct tape on the bottom...

Duct tape is strictly forbidden (hbr) as it ruins the ice when the clue from the tape sticks to the ice...

The club has beginner sliders and brooms... all you need is:

1) yourself
2) squeeky clean shoes

If I was to say... meet at the outside, ground floor entrance to the Duluth Curling Club... would everyone know where that is? Or should I post an image?

Hey, it was the CURLING CLUB instructors that put the tape on for me! I just figured they knew what they were doing! ;)
admin
Edge, I can drive you home afterwards, not a problem.
admin
I have very clean gold cleats.

Rich, would it be kosher if I brought a friend?

AMS, thank you I may well take you up on the offer, if my friend can/decides to come he lives in the area and can provide a ride... thankee thankee

Crew... I neglected to say...

Please bring a friend!!

However, for this initial round of curling... please keep it to peeps aged 12 and older (mine are 10/7/5... they will not attend)... I love kids. But I would like to keep the chaos to a minimum this go-round...

As for rides... if anyone needs one... and lives within five miles of chester creek... I can assist...

Gold cleats? Oh man... we only allow Silver cleats...

I'm not going to be able to make it tonight after all.

Edge~ I hope that me not coming doesn't affect you being able to get a lift home. Also, I have photos to get to you. Are you still planning to be out on Thursday night somewhere that I could drop the photos off to you?
admin

yeah, looks like Starfire Lounge is being moved to the Burrito Union, I'm fairly sure it starts at 10P, so I'll be there 9:45-ish. If worst come to worst we can just arrange a drop off somewhere during the week.

Looks like my friend is going to come along so my transportation is covered, thanks for asking.

shhh, what happens at Curling Club stays at Curling club...

Er, actually it was only myself, rich and my friend, I took a few but was more intent on learning and throwing so didn't get much. I know Rich took some and have been waiting patiently for them to appear
