THE FIRST SEASON OF MCC IN CEDARBURG
The Inaugural season of the Milwaukee Curling Club in its new facility in Cedarbug came to an end on April 4th, 2013, with the annual Awards Banquet. The five sheet facility held more than 20 bonspiels and events, seven Learn to Curl sessions, eight leagues and numerous ends of wins and losses with hours of broomstacking. While every curler could pick a favorite moment, all would agree that after years of planning, raising funds, constructing and commissioning the new MCC club, it was a great season.
So it's on to next season, beginning in October, 2013! (And the Annual Summer Picnic)
IT'S OFFICIAL - Our New House is Open
New ice on five new sheets was the center of attention for the First Ice Event and the Public Open House. The club opened its doors to a new season and a new home in October.
Milwaukee Curling Club members who made the new clubhouse a reality were along sidelines as Dave Goelzer took to the hack on center sheet ice for the First Rock Friday night. It was a special rink of MCC members -- Betsy Fredericksen and Mary Beth Goelzer took first sweeps onto Steve Shallock and more sweeps to Fred Blizzard for the rock run to the house. On the button delivery to First Skip Mark Conrardy. Brooms up and a "good curling" handshake from Matt Goelzer. And a well deserved applause to the success of the new shed.
The doors to the new clubhouse opened to members, guests and those interested in seeing curling up close on Friday and Saturday nights. More actiivities followed the next week including Practice Ice and 3 Learn to Curls. The Members' Opening Day, a MCC club tradition was Sunday October 28, 2012, in the new house.

ABOUT THE SPORT OF CURLING
Curling is a game of etiquette as well as skill... and enjoyed internationally. More Info.
Granite rocks with handles are sent down the ice after being delivered by one of four members of the rink (team) to the house (target) at the end of sheet. Sweeping by other members of the rink assist the rock as it travels down the ice before stopping in and around the house. The fourth member of the team, the Skip determines the strategy and delivers the final two rocks of the eight rock side. A complete game is an end and is decided by the team with the highest points.
