Greeting and well wishes as many Club Representatives are thinking about and preparing for the USWCA 2015 Fall meeting in North Dakota, September 18 - 20. With just a few days away, many have travel plans to journey to the upper mid-west and enjoy sights reserved for only this area. With a constant wind across the prairie flatlands, there is much beauty and we welcome you to this region. Traveling across country to Kent, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Boston, Massachusetts; Cleveland, Ohio; Portage, Wisconsin; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Greenwich, Connecticut, and a host of other wonderful places with Curling Clubs, there is much to be enjoyed in every part of our great country.
Yet, one sight remains the same - that of a beautiful sheet of ice for curling. Yes, there may be different structural and architectural styles housing "the ice", but the actual sheets of ice hold a unique beauty. And, so, for the excitement and spirit of curling that permeates every club across the nation as we begin thinking about and preparing for the new curling season, let me encourage you to take a moment and respect the ice and admire the beauty: cool, colorful, confounding (upon occasion), and comforting! Whether your curling club has year round curling or takes a break during the summer, the enjoyment of curling remains the same...as does the beauty of the ice!
Good Curling for the New Season!
