The 2022-23 season may be coming to an end, but there are a lot of fun curling things still coming up. So mark your calendar now!

Congratulations to the winners of our winter league

Congratulations to our 2023 winter league winners, Stephen Spence, Parker Abbott, Cale Tesch, and Noah Armstrong!

Last chance to sign up for MCA funspiel; volunteers needed!

Cedar Rapids Curling is hosting a casual, fun bonspiel with our fellow MCA arena clubs, St. Louis and Des Moines, May 13-14 in Cedar Rapids. This casual spiel will be a great way for new and experienced curlers to meet and play each other, and there is still room for a few more people!

The fee will be $35/curler. Participants are responsible for food and beverage costs. Pins will be awarded to the winners and runners-up of the four events. You can sign up as an individual or as a team. 

Register now   

Additionally, we will need volunteers for this event, as well as the MCA Arena Nationals Playdowns, which will be held at the same time. No experience necessary!!!

Sign up to volunteer   

What should the next curling season look like? Tell us!

Have thoughts or questions about when, what kind, and how long our leagues, learn to curls, and other events should be for the next year? Well, tell us. 

We will host a virtual planning meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 23. Sign up online and a Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event. 

This will be your time to share your ideas about what our schedule looks like—or just listen in on the planning process.

We also will be looking for volunteers throughout the weekend. Stay tuned for how to sign up to help with ice prep, merchandise and raffle sales, and dinner prep/serving.

Share curling at CR Pride and CR Farmers Market

We are excited to announce that Cedar Rapids Curling will have booths at two Cedar Rapids events this summer: CR Pride on July 8 and Cedar Rapids Farmers Market on Aug. 5. 

We will have a tent with a table full of curling items for people to check out, balloons for the kids (and adults), and hopefully our street curling set so people can "throw a stone."

We need volunteers--there will be multiple shifts for each event. It will be a great time to hang out together and share our sport with our community outside the ice!

Sign up for CR Pride   


Sign up for Farmers Market   

Get ready to vote for your Board of Directors

Six two-year positions on the Board of Directors are up for election this summer by the general membership. The Board meets once a month and establishes policies, appoints officers and committee chairs, and sets goals to accomplish Cedar Rapids Curling’s mission.

Joining the board is a great opportunity to serve and help guide the club through the exciting growth that we expect to experience in the next few years. Significant curling skill or experience is not required, and having a few newer members actually is desirable.

For more information about what is involved, ask any current board member. You can learn more about the current board members here.

To nominate yourself or another CRC member, email Phil Burian (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by June 18.

Members will receive an email with a link to vote for board members on June 25. Voting is anonymous and will remain open until July 9. New members will be announced at the July 16 picnic.

Mark your calendar for CRC picnic 

We have much to celebrate! Our Member Meeting & Picnic is tentatively scheduled noon Sunday, July 16, at at Hawks Ridge Park in Fairfax (390 W. Prairie Dr., Fairfax, IA, 52228). 

Bring your family and significant others! Cedar Rapids Curling will provide the hamburgers, brats, buns, and utensils. We ask that you bring an appetizer, side, dish, or dessert to share. After eating and catching up, we will have a short member meeting to share club status and plans and announce the new Board of Directors.
