The Let’s Rock! Campaign was a huge success!

The Let’s Rock! Campaign was a huge success, resulting in the donation of 64 new rocks for the Brainerd Curling Club! A huge thank you to all those who contributed and worked so hard to make this happen. The campaign has been ongoing for almost two years, but we found a group of generous individuals who contributed $400 per rock, allowing us to replace the used rocks we purchased about seven years ago. Those who contributed to this campaign are eternally engraved on the handles of all the rocks, so find out who those people are and thank them for their contributions. The following business and individuals purchased at least one rock. A number indicates if they bought more than one. A huge THANK YOU to you all!

Curl in the New Year!

The Brainerd Lakes Curling Club will be ushering in the new year with a social and curling party!  Join us starting at 5 p.m. on Dec. 31 for a potluck dinner and curling. The event is open to all members, friends, family members and non-members. There is no charge for guests.  We’ll start with 6-end pick-up games starting about 5 p.m. We’ll eat dinner after those games are completed, and then everyone can curl more after that if they’d like.  The bar will be open, thanks to a special liquor license.  Get it on your calendar and we’ll see you at the club on New Year’s Eve!...
