What is Curling? Curling is a team game, where all four team members’ efforts contribute directly to each shot. Teams can be composed of both sexes and all ages, and like golf, curling is a lifetime sport. A curler at any skill level, like a golfer, finds that his or her skills decline only gradually from about age 45 onward. A national class curler, like the pro golfer, realizes that once the physical aspects are mastered, the mental aspect of the game separates the good player from the champion. To continue with the golf analogy, it can be said that the curler who is at the height of his or her game has the same edge as the golfer who is sinking the key putts: great nerves, will to win, and mental toughness. historical and Descriptive notes It is generally agreed that curling was developed in Scotland in the 16th century. The climate in Scotland was colder then, and curling took place on the many marshes (since drained). Scottish farmers curled on the frozen marshes using “channel stones,” which were naturally smoothed by the water’s action. The principles of the game were similar to the modern game, although there were many differences in rules and equipment. The spirit of curling evolved in the early centuries in Scotland. It is this spirit of honorable competition followed by egalitarian sociality that made curling a special game in curlers’ minds. An excerpt from “The Spirit of Curling:” “Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents. A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly ... while the main object of the game is to determine the relative skill of the players, the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling, and honorable conduct.” Scottish immigrants brought the game with them to North America, first to Canada around 1759, then to the United States around 1832. By 1855, curling clubs flourished in New York City, Detroit, Milwaukee and Portage, Wis. Curling in the rest of Europe developed in the 20th century. Two developments ensured that the modern game would be marked by a high degree of physical skill and mental toughness: 1. the standardization of the stone, and 2. indoor, refrigerated ice. The modern stone is round, and about 42 pounds. Curling is played, for the most part, on indoor, refrigerated ice, which helps ensure a fast, consistent and predictable playing surface. The Game A game is made up of 10 ends (like innings). An end consists of each team member shooting (delivering) two rocks, or stones, alternately with the opponent’s player at the same position. When all 16 rocks have been delivered, the score for that end is determined. A 12-foot circle (the “house”) is the scoring area. For each stone closer to the center of the circles (the tee) than any of the opponent’s, one point is scored. The team scoring shoots first in the next end, giving the opponent the “hammer,” or last shot of that end. Teams will sometimes ignore taking a point to retain

the next end’s hammer. The sheet of ice (playing surface) is 16' 5" wide and 150 feet long, set up to accommodate play in both directions. Most curling takes place in curling clubs, which commonly have two to six sheets of ice. Hockey arenas are also used as temporary curling rinks; they accommodate up to six sheets. All four players shoot two rocks per end, beginning with the player referred to as the “lead.” The “second” shoots next, and then the “third,” or “vice skip.” The skip usually shoots the last rocks, and calls the strategy for the game. The skip decides on shot selection, and “reads” the curl in the ice for the shooter. The shooter must be accurate in three functions: 1. Aim (at the broom) 2. “Weight” (velocity imparted to the stone) 3. Imparting the correct “handle” (curl) to each shot Shots are called either to stop at a certain point on the sheet (“draws” or “guards”) or to have enough weight to strike another rock out of play (“takeouts” or “hit and rolls”). Each running stone curls, or curves, as it proceeds down the ice based on the twist given the handle during the delivery. The amount of curl varies based on the ice surface and the speed of the rock. The curl allows for better control of the stone and also provides a means to shoot around guards. sweeping—with either a straw broom, hog hair or horse hair brush, or synthetic brush—adds the element of fitness to curling because, to be effective, sweeping must be very vigorous. Sweeping slightly melts the ice, which reduces the friction between the running stone and the ice. The result is that the stone will curl less, and slide farther. Sweeping is called for when the stone has not been delivered firmly enough, and/or when the shot is aimed “narrow,” or inside the broom target. Sweeping can help a rock slide up to an additional 15 feet. Top teams control most shots by using aim and weight “within the sweeping zone.” strategy is a major part of curling. Shots are played with an eye to the last rocks of each end, not simply placed at the center of the circles. The strategy can be rather complex. Innovations are constantly being made and adopted when the innovators win, similar to other sports where strategy and the game plan plays a major role. It is common for games between national-class teams to be very close, with both skips jockeying for the last shot in the last end.


Who curls, and where? Curling opportunities exist for males and females of all age groups. Twenty-four-pound “junior stones” are available for younger children to use. The game has equal appeal as both a social outlet and a competitive sport. Recreational curling competitions, called “bonspiels,” are organized for men, women, couples, seniors and juniors. Local clubs have regular leagues for these same constituencies. “Open” events feature curlers of all ages and both genders competing in one competition. Curlers come from all walks of life, and value the special camaraderie integral to the sport. Curling is played in 37 states across the United States. It is a winter sport, but it is being played more and more in warmer climates with the growth of indoor ice facilities. There are approximately 15,000 curlers in the U.S., and 159 clubs across the U.S. Wisconsin has the largest concentration of curlers, with nearly 4,000, while Minnesota has more than 3,000. There also are substantial clubs along the East Coast as well as in Seattle and Fairbanks, Alaska, and even in Texas, which now boasts three active clubs. The fastest growing areas in the past 10 years have been the Mountain Pacific region in the west and the Great Lakes region in the upper Midwest. California, a member of the MoPac region, now has five active curling clubs.

Curling Across the Globe Curling is mostly concentrated in countries with colder climates. Canada has the most curlers of all, with nearly 1.2 million of the estimated 1.5 million in the world. Only four other countries have more than 10,000 curlers—Japan, Scotland, Switzerland and the USA. The 46 countries listed below have curling organizations that belong to the World Curling Federation: Austria Bulgaria Croatia Estonia Greece Italy Latvia Netherlands Russia Slovakia Switzerland Wales

The AbCs of Curling In curling, all four players of a team are involved in each of their team’s shots. While the skip, or captain, holds his or her broom for a target and calls the strategy for the shooter, the other two players sweep the stone’s path when deemed necessary. Sweeping clears the ice of any frost or debris that might slow the stone down or send it off course. Sweeping also polishes the ice, creating a thin layer of moisture that reduces friction and allows the rock to go farther and straighter (up to 15 feet farther with vigorous sweeping). The “sweepers” are in the best position to judge whether or not the delivered stone has enough momentum to reach its target, while the person in the house can best judge the line and call for sweeping if the stone is curling too much. Sweeping is allowed between the tee lines, and beyond the far tee line by only one player per team. All four players may sweep at the same time when the stone is between the tee lines. The player in charge of the house may sweep an opponent’s stone once it passes the tee line. Players may also sweep any of their own stones that have been set into motion by the delivered stone. By the 1990s, the skill of top players had progressed to such a point that, once a team got a small lead, they were simply knocking out one another’s rocks repeatedly, which translated to “boring games” for many spectators. To spice up the game, the World Curling Federation introduced the Free Guard Zone Rule (or Moncton Rule, since it was first tested in competition in Moncton, New Brunswick). Simply put, the Free Guard Zone Rule specifies that players are allowed to bump—but not remove—the first four rocks of a given end if they come to rest between the hog line and the tee line, excluding the house (i.e., the guard zone). Any rock touching the tee line outside the house, or biting (touching) the 12foot ring at the front of the house, is not considered to be in the Free Guard Zone and may be taken out by the opposing lead player. When teams take advantage of the Free Guard Zone, there generally are more rocks in play throughout an end, and teams have a much better chance of coming back from a deficit. In turn, strategies have evolved that are significantly different from the old “hit” game, and the sport has become much more interesting for the majority of spectators, as well as for the players.

Curling Equipment

Clothing: Loose fitting, several layers, sweaters, pants, kilts, caps. Matching uniforms for many competitions. shoes: Special curling shoes are common but not mandatory. Shoes should grip the ice well for walking. Smooth soles are easy to clean to minimize dirt on the ice. For the delivery, extremely slippery surfaces such as Teflon are used on the sliding foot to generate a long, smooth-sliding follow through. Some “sliders” are built into shoes, while others are strapped on over the sole. broom/brush: Commercially manufactured for curling. The straw brooms, synthetic brushes, and short bristled brushes are all effective. stones: Made of a rare, close and evenly grained granite quarried primarily on Scotland’s Ailsa Craig, with handles attached. Standardized, weighing 42 pounds, and provided by the curling clubs. Rocks and broom artwork (above, below) by Jerome Larson.


Glossary of Curling Terms bACK LInE – the line at the back of the house. Rocks completely beyond the line are out of play. bOnspIELs – curling tournaments. bROOM – the instrument used to sweep the ice. Brooms with synthetic heads are most common. bURnED ROCK – a shooting team’s rock that has been fouled (touched by a player or equipment) while in motion. It is removed from play. CEnTERLInE – the line dividing and running the length of the sheet of ice. CURL – a turn of the rock’s handle upon release makes the rock curl, or curve, as it travels down the ice. The rock curls in the direction of the turn. DELIVERY – the release of the curling stone by the shooter. DRAW – a rock that stops in front of or in the house. EnD – One end is complete when all 16 rocks (eight per team) have been thrown to one end of the sheet. A game is usually eight ends, or about two hours. Championship games are 10 ends, or about 2 1/2 hours. After each end, the score is determined. FREEzE – a draw that finishes in front of and up against another rock. GUARD – a rock between the hog line and the house used to thwart the opposition from hitting a rock in the house. hACK – a rubber foothold from which curlers deliver the rock. It is about 125 feet from the scoring area. hAMMER – the last rock of each end. hEAVY ICE – when the ice is “slow” and the rocks have to be thrown harder. hIT & ROLL – a shot designed to take out an opponent’s rock and then roll the shooter to a designated spot, such as behind a guard. hOG LInEs – located 21 feet from each tee. A rock must be released before the near hog line, and travel beyond the far hog line, or it is removed from play. hOUsE – the round scoring area, 12 feet in diameter, with concentric circles of four and eight feet in diameter inside. hURRY – a command shouted by the skip or shooter to tell the sweepers to sweep. KEEn ICE – when the ice is “fast” and less momentum is needed on the rock. LEAD – the player who delivers the first two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s lead. nARROW – a rock delivered inside the intended line of delivery. pEEL – a shot to remove a guard, or guards.

20


Glossary of Curling Terms pORT – an opening through which teams try to draw or shoot through. RAIsE – a draw that raises another rock into the house. RInK – a curling team, which consist of four players, the skip, third (vice-skip), second, and lead. All players are involved in every shot, with one shooting, two sweeping, and one calling strategy. Two rinks play against each other. ROCKs – also known as stones, are made of rare, dense, polished granite. Each rock weighs 42 pounds. sCORInG – only one rink scores per end, that being the rink with the rock(s) closest to the center of the house. The team with the highest score at the end of a game wins. The maximum score in each end is eight, which is very rare. Typically, one to three points are scored per end. sECOnD – the player who delivers the second two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s second. shEET – the 146-ft. long ice playing area. The sheet’s design allows play in both directions.

sLIDER – worn on the sliding foot, in the delivery of a stone to allow for long, smooth motion and follow through. sTRAIGhT ICE – when the ice is not curling much. sWEEpInG – players sweep to make the rock travel farther, or to keep it from curling too much. Good sweepers can increase the distance a stone travels by more than 10 feet. Sweeping creates a thin film of water under the rock that allows it to glide easier. Two players are ready to sweep each shot. “sWInGY” ICE – when the ice is curling a lot. TAKEOUT – a rock that removes another rock from play. TEE (or bUTTOn) – center of the house. ThIRD – the player who delivers the third two rocks of each end, alternating with the opponent’s third. The player who holds the broom for the skip, and who assists the skip with game strategy. Also known as a vice skip. WEIGhT – the momentum, or force, behind a rock as it glides down the ice. WIDE – a rock delivered outside the line of delivery.

21

Curling Glossary

sKIp – player who holds the broom as a target for shots by the other three players. Skips are team strategists and must study–or read–the ice, judge the amount of curl, and call the shots. Skips usually throw the last two rocks of each end.


UsCA Awards 2010 UsA Curling Athletes of the Year 2010 U.S. national champion Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and 2010 world junior bronze medalist Alexandra Carlson (Wayzata, Minn.) have been named the top athletes for 2010. Polo, a three-time national champion and Olympic bronze medalist, earned the honor after his steady play both at the Men’s National Championship and subsequent Men’s World Championship, where he finished as the No. 2 ranked player overall at the second position as part of Team USA, skipped by Pete Fenson in Cortina, Italy. This is the first time Polo has been named Athlete of the Year. He was a member of the 2006 USA Curling Team of the Year and U.S. Olympic Committee’s Team of the Year in 2006 as well. Polo is employed as an engineer with Lakehead Contractors. Carlson, who earned back-to-back junior national titles, skipped her team to the bronze medal at the 2010 World Juniors in Flims, Switzerland. This was the first medal for the U.S. junior women’s program since 2003. She is a student at Marquette University in Milwaukee.

Associated Press writer Janie McCauley of San Francisco is the 2010 recipient of the Bruce Bennett Media Award for her writing in the advance of and during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The Bruce Bennett Media Award honors Bruce Bennett, who captured the many aspects of curling - the people, the competition, the strategy, and the skill. In his stories, he was able to convey the essence of the game, for curlers and non-curlers alike. McCauley, 34, was assigned to the Olympic curling beat last summer and eagerly began developing feature stories on the 12 athletes and coaching staff to help the public learn more about the 2010 U.S. Olympic curling team. McCauley fully embraced her role and visited with the team at a media camp in Green Bay in December to better acquaint herself with the team and get some ice time to better understand the sport. In addition, McCauley was the driving force in the development of the relationship between San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis and USA Curling.

Awards

Two first-time winners were named top USA Curling coaches for 2010. Howard Restall (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and Ed Sheffield (Madison, Wis.) were honored for their coaching achievements at the junior level. Restall has been selected as 2010 USA Curling Coach of the Year. Restall, who has worked with the Alexandra Carlson rink for the past several years, helped the team win bronze at the 2010 World Junior Championships in Switzerland after they repeated as junior national champions. This was the first medal for the junior women’s program since 2003. Sheffield earns the 2010 USA Curling Developmental Coach of the Year award for his work with two junior men’s teams from Wisconsin – the Blake Morton and Tom Gabower rinks. Sheffield’s work with curlers of all skill levels has created a busy schedule for him in the winter. According to Patrice Gabower, who nominated Sheffield: “Ed is at the club every day during the winter. He carries a calendar that he fills with instruction times with anyone who asks. I have personally seen his calendar, and it would be fair to say he has scheduled practice and instructional sessions with at least 30-40 players from our club and clubs in the area. Whenever there is an open sheet of ice he is usually out there helping with the basics of delivery or, with the more advanced players, helping them fine-tune and hone their game. I have never heard him say he does not have time to help someone.” Both coaches will be nominated for the United States Olympic Committee’s annual coaching awards.

Curling’s Olympic history The first Olympic demonstration was in 1924, in Chamonix, France, where men’s teams from England, France and Sweden competed. England won the gold, and Sweden the silver. Games at this time were 18 ends long versus 10 today. This event was most recently recognized as the first time curling was an Olympic medal sport. However, the sport would not have full medal status again until the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Curling was next a demonstration sport in 1932, in Lake Placid, N.Y. Eight men’s teams competed–four from Canada and four from the United States. The U.S. teams came from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan and New York. Canada won the round robin competition, taking 12 games to the USA’s four. Games were 16 ends long. After a long absence, curling returned to the Olympics as an official demonstration in 1988, in Calgary, Canada. For the first time, a women’s competition was included. Canada won the women’s event, followed by Sweden and Norway. On the men’s side, Norway took the gold, followed by Switzerland and Canada. (Bronze medals were awarded to the team that lost in the playoffs to the eventual champion.) The U.S. men’s and women’s teams both finished fourth. Curling was again part of the Olympic demonstration sport program in 1992, in Albertville, France. This time, Germany won the women’s gold, followed by Norway and Canada. A bronze medal game was held, with Canada defeating Denmark. Switzerland took the men’s championship, with Norway earning the silver medal and the USA defeating Canada for the bronze medal. The USA’s team included Bud Somerville, Mike Strum, Bill Strum and Tim Somerville, all from Superior, Wis. (The U.S. women failed to earn a berth in the Olympic competition in 1992.)

Olympic history

In Salt Lake City in 2002, curling was a medal sport on the Olympic program for the third time. The U.S. men, led by Tim Somerville, finished seventh, while the women’s team, skipped by Kari Erickson, missed a bronze medal by just a few rocks. The Pete Fenson rink based out of Bemidji, Minn., won U.S. curling’s first Olympic medal when the team defeated Great Britain to win the bronze medal at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. The U.S. women’s team, led by Cassie Johnson, struggled in its opening games and finished eighth overall. Canada’s Brad Gushue rink would capture the men’s elusive gold medal defeating Finland, while Anette Norberg of Sweden added to its collection of medals by defeating Switzerland for the gold. In 2010 at the Olympic Games in Vancouver, 2006 Olympic bronze medalist John Shuster and three-time Olympian Debbie McCormick (1998, 2002, 2010) skipped their teams at the 5,000seat Vancouver Olympic Center. It was a tough week as the teams battled through the round robin. Unfortunately, both would finish in 10th place and out of playoff contention. Canada’s Kevin Martin rink would capture the men’s gold over Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud. On the women’s side, Sweden’s Anette Norberg rink came from behind to overtake Canada’s Cheryl Bernard to repeat as women’s Olympic champions. In the bronze-medal matches, Switzerland’s Ralph Stoeckli outlasted Sweden’s Niklas Edin in the men’s game while China won its first Olympic medal in curling when Bingyu Wang defeated Switzerland’s Mirjam Ott. Curling was officially a demonstration sport three times, but there were also “domestic exhibitions” (host country participants only) in 1948 (St. Moritz, Switzerland) and 1964 (Innsbruck, Austria).


2010 Olympic Winter Games 2010 Olympic Winter Games Feb. 12-28 • Vancouver, british Columbia Things didn’t go as planned at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games after a very successful lead-up for Debbie McCormick’s Team USA. McCormick (Rio, Wis.) and teammates Allison Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.), Nicole Joraanstad (Madison, Wis.), Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.) and Tracy Sachtjen (Lodi, Wis.) had a strong season on the World Curling Tour in the months leading up to Vancouver. Unfortunately, the team had an off week and finished with a 2-7 Olympic record. The American ladies suffered several close losses to open the tournament, much like the U.S. men. After three straight losses, the U.S. women defeated Russia and Great Britain, but then met the playoff-bound teams from Canada, Sweden, China and Switzerland at the end of the round robin. Sweden’s Anette Norberg rink would go on to defend its Olympic title with a 7-6 extra-end win over Canada’s Cheryl Bernard. China’s Bingyu Wang rink defeated Switzerland’s Mirjam Ott, 12-6, to win the bronze medal.

2010 Olympic Winter Games 2010 Olympic Winter Games Feb. 12-28 • Vancouver, british Columbia The American men, led by John Shuster (Duluth, Minn.), had many heart-breaking last-rock losses to start the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Unfortunately, the team was not able to overcome this and stumbled to a 2-7 finish in the round robin and did not advance to the medal rounds. After losing a close match to Germany in the opening round, the Americans then lost three straight extra-end matches to quickly fall to 0-4 in the standings. Shuster and teammates Jason Smith (Cape Coral, Fla.), Jeff Isaacson (Gilbert, Minn.), John Benton (St. Michael, Minn.) and Chris Plys (Duluth, Minn.) would bounce back with two wins but faced tough competition at the end of the round robin to end their run at the 2010 Olympic Games with three straight losses. Canada’s Kevin Martin rink went on to finish a perfect week with a 6-3 victory over Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud rink to win the gold medal. Switzerland defeated Sweden, 5-4, to capture the bronze.

2010 U.s. Mixed Doubles 2010 U.s. Mixed Doubles Championship Dec. 3-6, 2009 • Granite Curling Club seattle, Wash. n an all-Seattle championship final, the hometown team of Sharon Vukich and Mike Calcagno earned the right to represent the USA after winning the 2010 U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle on Dec. 6. Vukich and Calcagno upset defending champion Cristin Clark and partner Sean Beighton, 10-4. It wasn’t without a battle, though. Vukich jumped out to an early lead with a critical fourender in the fourth and held off a late rally by Clark and Beighton to seal the win and finish the competition undefeated. Vukich struck first, scoring in the first two ends to grab an early 3-0 lead. Clark would earn a deuce in the third end, but it was the fourth end that proved to be the key point in the match in this third installment of the U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship. Vukich and Calcagno were able to earn four points in that end and never looked back. Trailing 7-2 at this point, Clark and Beighton were forced to a single but would steal one more in the seventh end. With just one end remaining, the lead proved insurmountable as Vukich and Calcagno popped a deuce to win the title. Vukich, 52, a two-time U.S. women’s national champion in the 1980s, also won the 2010 U.S. Senior Nationals title and the Washington Women’s Championship, which led to representing the Washington region at the 2010 Club National Championships. This was Calcagno’s first major U.S. title win. They went on to finish 10th at the 2010 World Mixed Doubles Championship in Chelyabinsk, Russia.

2010 World Mixed Doubles 2010 World Mixed Doubles Championship April 16-24 • Chelyabinsk, Russia olcanic ash from the historic eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland on March 20, 2010, delayed and canceled trips to the 2010 World Mixed Doubles for many competitors, but those who made the trip enjoyed the 12-sheets of ice created at the Ural Lightning Ice Palace to host both the World Mixed and the World Senior Championships simultaneously. The USA’s duo of Sharon Vukich and Mike Calcagno of Seattle wrapped up the tournament with a 3-3 record with Vukich pulling double duty as skip of the women’s team competing in the World Seniors and Calcagno’s flight delayed due to the widespread ash. The Americans lost their opening match but won the next two to stay in the playoff hunt. But, two more losses and the U.S. was out of contention. The Russian team of Yana Nekrasova and Petr Dron would capture the gold medal with a 9-7 win over New Zealand’s Sean and Bridget Becker. China won the bronze with an 8-7 win over Spain after stealing a point in the extra end. This was the third time the World Mixed Doubles Championship was contested. Switzerland won the two previous events.

2010 Junior nationals 2010 U.s. Junior nationals Jan. 23-30 • bemidji Curling Club bemidji, Minn. or the first time since 2002, a junior men’s team not hailing from Minnesota won the U.S. National Junior Championships. Sean Beighton’s team from the Granite Curling Club in Seattle captured the men’s title with a dominating 7-3 defeat of Minnesota II’s Aaron Wald rink at the championships in Bemidji, Minn. Beighton (Edmonds, Wash.) and teammates Derrick Mclean (Bothell, Wash.), Sam Galey (Seattle) and Joseph Purvis (Kenmore, Wash.) made their first appearance at the World Junior Championships. They were joined by Alexandra Carlson’s team from Minnesota, which defended its title in defeating Wisconsin I’s Becca Hamilton, 7-5. Carlson (Wayzata, Minn.), Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.), Tara Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) and Sophie Brorson (Duluth, Minn.) got off to a solid start in the final game, scoring in the game’s first five ends to take a 5-0 lead at the halfway point. Hamilton and teammates Karlie Koenig (Oconomowoc, Wis.), Jenna Haag (Milton, Wis.) and Grace Gabower (Janesville, Wis.) battled back, however, scoring three points in the sixth end to cut the deficit. Carlson was held to a single in the eighth, but after Hamilton scored a deuce in the ninth end, Carlson didn’t bow to the steal attempt en route to capturing the national title. To avoid giving up the steal Hamilton had set up, Carlson had to skim past a guard and make a takeout of Hamilton’s count rock for the win. Beighton’s team took advantage of a key steal opportunity in the fifth end to break open a tie game. Wald (Chisholm, Minn.) and teammates Josh Bahr (Bemidji, Minn.), Jared Zezel (Hibbing, Minn.) and John Muller (Hibbing, Minn.) didn’t recover and were forced to a single in the seventh end, trailing 5-3. Beighton would score singles in the next two ends to earn the trip to Switzerland. “I wasn’t feeling nervous at all,” Beighton said about watching his opponent throw the final rock in the ninth, which resulted in a steal for Washington. “He had to make a tough shot but he just overthrew it a bit. It hasn’t sunk in yet that we won.” This is the sixth season that Beighton, Mclean and Purvis have played together and second year with Galey in the frontend. The teams went on to compete at the 2010 World Junior Championships in Flims, Switzerland, where the women captured the bronze medal.

2010 U.s. national Championships 2010 U.s. national Championships March 6-13, 2010 • Kalamazoo, Mich. n a tense battle between two former longtime teammates, the “new” skip overcame the veteran, as Erika Brown’s team won the 2010 USA Curling National Championship with a 5-4, extra-end win over the Patti Lank rink at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Mich., March 13. Brown and teammates Nina Spatola (McFarland, Wis.), Ann Swisshelm (Chicago) and Laura Hallisey (Medfield, Mass.) won the game with a dead-on hit for one in the 11th end, securing Brown’s first-ever World Women’s Championship appearance as a skip. Brown, born in Madison, Wis., and now living in Oakville, Ontario, last played in a world championship in 2004, as third for Lank. Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) and teammates Aileen Sormunen (Duluth, Minn.), Caitlin Maroldo (Rochester, N.Y.) and Jessica Schultz (Richfield, Minn.) got on the board first, stealing one in the opening end when Brown tried to hit and roll for one and instead rolled out of count. After blanking the second end, Brown was forced into taking one in the third. She returned the favor in the fourth, with Lank having to draw the four-foot against two opposing counters. Lank was perfect on this draw, in contrast to one earlier that went to the hack. The game turned in Team Brown’s favor in the fifth. Lank just missed a double takeout with her last shot, but still had first count. That is until Brown delivered a precise tap back to score two for a 3-2 lead. After blanking the sixth, Lank’s team tried valiantly to set up a deuce in the seventh end, but couldn’t get buried behind corner guards. Lank was eventually forced to hit for one and a 3-3 score. Brown was facing three opposing counters in the eighth when she settled in with the last rock of the end. She opted to hit shot rock for one rather than draw, and made it cleanly. Lank’s team was efficient at blanking the ninth end to retain the last-rock advantage heading home in the 10th. But things didn’t go quite so smoothly in that last end of regulation, with Schultz’s two corner guard attempts both winding up in the house, where Brown’s team quickly pounced on them. Lank’s team eventually opted to safely take a point and head into overtime. In the extra end, Schultz’s lead rock was where it needed to be, sitting as a high center guard. But not much else went right for Lank’s team in that end. The house was empty by the time Lank’s last rock was due, with one corner guard. Lank drew to the back of the four-foot, partially behind cover, but Brown still had a bead on it. She barely even considered playing the draw instead of the hit, and won the 2010 national title.

2010 national Championships 2010 U.s. national Championships March 6-13, 2010 •  Kalamazoo, Mich. ete Fenson, who helped deliver USA’s first Olympic medal in curling when he led his team to the bronze in the 2006 Games in Torino, Italy, made a return to the top after capturing the 2010 National Championships along with teammates (Bemidji, Minn.), Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and Tyler George (Duluth, Minn.). The Fenson team defeated the Mike Farbelow rink, 8-4, at Wings Stadium on March 13 to win the crown. Fenson’s team never trailed Farbelow (Minneapolis, Minn.) and teammates Eric Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.), Jeff Puleo (Forest Lake, Minn.) and Mark Willmert (Minneapolis) in the gold medal game. The only real miscue by Fenson’s team was the failure to blank the first end as attempted. But when Farbelow flashed on a takeout trying to blank the second end, giving Fenson’s team a 2-0 lead, the makeup of the game changed immediately. Farbelow hit for one in the third end, but Fenson’s team used the hammer in the fourth for a double takeout and 4-1 lead. Team Farbelow was setting up for a deuce in the fifth until failing to get a second counter in the rings, allowing Fenson to get out of the end. Farbelow wound up drawing for one against four counters this time. The game totally got away from Farbelow’s team in the sixth, when Fenson’s team got two rocks behind center guards early in the end. The Fenson foursome was already counting three when Farbelow stepped up with his first rock. He tried a double takeout, but removed only one. After Fenson replaced that stone, Farbelow tried a freeze to minimize the damage. But his shot caught on a guard and Fenson had an open draw for four. Farbelow’s team played gamely on, trying to get at least a deuce to get back into the game. He got that in the eighth, when Fenson rolled out on a takeout and left an open draw for two. But the Fenson team wasn’t going to be denied, with double peels by Polo and Rojeski providing the exclamation points to the approval of the approximately 1,000 fans in the stands. Team Farbelow shook after nine ends.

In the third showdown of the week between Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.) and teammates Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and Tyler George (Duluth, Minn.) and Scotland’s Warwick Smith rink, the Scots once again stole the final end to defeat the U.S. – eerily by the same score as their Page 3-4 playoff meeting, 6-4. The U.S. outplayed the Scots, shooting 84 percent to 77, but as it often does in curling, the last shot is the one that seals your fate. Tied 4-4 in the final end, the U.S. had shot rock in the four-foot until Rojeski missed a peel and Scotland came down to remove it. As the end progressed, Smith used his final stone to cover the button and the Americans couldn’t get the right angle on it to move it far enough away from the Capital One sponsor logo plastered over the button for the win in front of a modest crowd of around 200 fans who took in the bronze-medal game at the Olympic Ice Stadium. Canada’s Kevin Koe rink would go on to win the gold medal with a 9-3 defeat of Norway’s Torger Nergard team.

2010 Women’s Worlds 2010 Ford World Women’s Championship March 20-28 • Swift Current, Saskatchewan ne bad end was all it took to wipe away Team USA's medal hopes as Sweden defeated Erika Brown's team, 11-8, in the tiebreaker game at the 2010 Ford World Women's Curling Championship. With the win, 22-year-old Cecilia Ostlund and her teammates from Sweden earned the No. 4 playoff seed. Germany’s Andrea Schopp team went on to win the world title over Scotland’s Eve Muirhead. Canada’s Jennifer Jones defeated the Swedes for the bronze. For the Americans, it was the end of the road in Saskatchewan as the chapter closed on a 7-5 week at the Credit Union I-plex. The fifth-place showing was the USA’s best finish since 2007. Brown and teammates Nina Spatola (McFarland, Wis.), Ann Swisshelm (Chicago) and Laura Hallisey (Medfield, Mass.) went after the Swedes much like in the round robin game in which Sweden also prevailed. The U.S. didn’t shoot all that well in the first end but shook it off to earn a deuce in the next end. The Swedes forged ahead in the third end as Brown wrecked on a guard trying to remove the Swedish shot rock, giving Ostlund a chance to grab three points. Trailing 10-6, the U.S. had a chance to get closer but Ostlund made a double takeout with her final rock of the ninth and the U.S. drew for two instead. The Americans kept battling, though, and had two stones spread across the rings to force Ostlund to make a takeout with the last stone for the win.

2010 senior nationals 2010 U.s. senior nationals Jan. 28-31 • Cape Cod Curling Club, Falmouth, Mass. (women) and portage Curling Club, portage, Wis. (men) hey’d won men’s nationals together nearly a decade ago, but on Jan. 31 they were on opposite sides battling for the right to wear USA again in the men’s goldmedal game at the 2010 U.S. Senior National Championship in Portage, Wis. Paul Pustovar (Hibbing, Minn.) and Geoff Goodland (Eau Claire, Wis.) teamed up to win the 2002 Nationals and make the semifinals at the Worlds that year in Bismarck, N.D. But that was a long time ago. Both have since won the U.S. senior title – Pustovar last year and Goodland in 2007. With the double knockout provision in place, Pustovar, 58, and teammates Brian Simonson (Hibbing), Tom Harms (Pengilly, Minn.), Don Mohawk (Nashwauk, Minn.) and John Kokotovich (Hibbing) had to defeat Goodland’s team twice in 8 hours to advance to the World Seniors once again. In the afternoon match, Pustovar’s team needed an extra end to knock off Goodland’s team, 7-6, with a key steal. It was the first loss of the tournament for Goodland and teammates Pete Westberg (Naperville, Ill.), Tim Solin (Mahtomedi, Minn.) and Ken Olson (Plymouth, Minn.). Pustovar’s rink then defeated Goodland for a second time, 8-3, to officially eliminate the team from contention. Seattle’s Sharon Vukich had a very busy season. The 52-yearold curler from the Granite Curling Club won the U.S. Mixed Doubles title in December, followed up with the Washington women’s club title and then defended her U.S. senior national title at the Cape Cod Curling Club in Falmouth, Mass., on Jan. 30. Vukich and teammates Linda Cornfield (Seattle), Susan Curtis (Rogers, Ark.) and Betty Kozai (Seattle) defeated Mary Colacchio’s home-club team three times in a best three-out-offive competition to win the right to wear USA. Vukich’s team defeated Colacchio and teammates Catherine Offinger (Falmouth, Mass.), Abigail Read (Appleton, Maine) and Susan Verner (Mashpee, Mass.) by scores of 10-4 and 9-7, then had to battle back and steal the extra end in the third game for the 6-5 victory. Colacchio would get a chance to wear USA, however, as she replaced Cornfield, who was unable to travel with the team to Russia. Fellow Granite Curling Club member Dani Thibodeaux (Seattle) was added as the team’s alternate.

But it was down to the last rock, and that’s the excitement of curling!” Canada’s Colleen Pinkney rink defeated Switzerland’s Renate Nedkoff to win the women’s gold-medal match, 8-4. Australia’s Hugh Millikin won the country’s first-ever world championship medal in curling with a 4-3 win over Switzerland for the bronze medal.

2010 senior Worlds 2010 World senior Championships April 16-24 • Chelyabinsk, Russia aul Pustovar and the American men defeated Canada, 4-3, to win gold at the 2010 World Senior Championships at the Ural Lightning Arena in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Pustovar (Hibbing, Minn.) and teammates Brian Simonson (Hibbing, Minn.), Tom Harms (Pengilly, Minn.), Don Mohawk (Nashwauk, Minn.) and Dale Gibbs (Woodbury, Minn.) won the first gold medal for USA at this event since Larry Johnson’s American team won the inaugural event in 2002. “I’m elated; it’s a fantastic feeling – after all that practice and all that work that we’ve done in the last couple of years and actually all the practice in my entire life,” said Pustovar, who has represented the U.S. at five world men’s championships and now two world senior events. The U.S. tied the game in the eighth with a steal to force an extra end, where they’d steal the winning point to get to the top of the podium. “In the extra end we were able to get the draw around the guards to the fourfoot. And that rock stayed there the whole end and we just kept guarding it. And they had two mistakes…they had two of their own red rocks up front in that extra end, so that hurt them as they were guards for us actually,” Pustovar said.

2010 U.s. Club nationals 2010 U.s. Club national Championships Feb. 20-27 • Madison, WI racy Lawless and her Illinois rink stole four straight deuces and a single in the eighth end to break open a tight game and close the door on Beth Bohlman’s North Dakota team to win the women’s Club National Championship Feb. 27 at the Madison Curling Club. This is the first club national title for Lawless and teammates Marcy Calaway (Lake Forest, Ill.), Leslie Armstrong (Lake Bluff, Ill.) and Laurie Hektor (Lake Bluff, Ill.) in the sixth year of the event. Teaming up with Bohlman were Grand Forks Curling Club teammates Susan Stern, Amy Bushaw, Nancy Rentfrow and Dawn Zimney (all of Grand Forks, N.D.). In the women’s bronze medal match, Wisconsin’s Laura Roessler rink defeated Shelley Kinney and her Minnesota team, 6-5. Roessler drew the button to cap the extra-end thriller. In the extra end, Minnesota made several excellent draws around guards, but Wisconsin vice skip Sara Hein countered with a triple-peel to ensure Roessler would have access to the fourfoot with her last shot. Joining Roessler (Trempealeau, Wis.) and Hein (Galesville, Wis.) from the Centerville Curling Club are teammates Lynita Delaney (Trempealeau), Nora Kraemer (Winona, Minn.) and Elyse Sorenson (La Crosse).

2010 U.s. Club nationals 2010 U.s. Club national Championships Feb. 20-27 • Madison, WI innesota’s Todd Birr rink edged Washington’s Philip Tilker, 7-5, to win the 2010 Club National Championship men’s title Feb. 27 at the Madison Curling Club in McFarland, Wis. Birr and teammates Randy Cumming (Lake Crystal, Minn.), Kevin Vetter (St. Peter, Minn.) and Shawn Runing (North Mankato, Minn.) got out to a big lead early, scoring in the game’s first three ends to jump ahead 4-0. Tilker (Seattle) and his Granite Curling Club teammates Darren Lehto (Snohomish), Liam Barksdale (Seattle) and William Rugen (Seattle) battled back but ran out of rocks in the 10th trying to steal the win. In the bronze medal game, Jeff Wright and his Illinois team seemed to have several rocks buried in the four foot and guarded in most ends, and it paid off as they defeated Wisconsin’s Kroy Nernberger, 9-4, in the bronze-medal game. Wright (Libertyville, Ill.) and his Exmoor Curling Club members Russ Armstrong (Highwood), Steve Waters (Evanston), Russ Brown (Lake Forest) and Stephen Wright (Chicago) scored early and often in defeating Nernberger (Fitchburg, Wis.) and teammates Jake Will (Madison, Wis.), Patrick Roe (Madison, Wis.), and Tom Gabower (Janesville, Wis.). Illinois took a 4-2 lead after three ends and then stole two later ends to earn the win.

2010 U.s. Mixed Championship 2010 U.s. Mixed national Championship March 20-27, 2010 Chicago Curling Club, northbrook, Ill. ashington’s “First Couple of Curling” won their seventh mixed national title as the 2010 U.S. Mixed National Championship wrapped up March 27 at the Chicago Curling Club. Brady Clark and wife Cristin (of Lynnwood, Wash.) from Seattle’s Granite Curling Club only needed four ends to win their seventh title as they got off to a fast start in defeating Al Gulseth’s North Dakota 1 team, 10-1, for the gold medal. This is the sixth title for team lead Bev Walter (Seattle) and second for Philip Tilker (Seattle). This was the first appearance in the mixed finale for Gulseth and teammates Michelle Wagner (Fargo, N.D.), Mark Gulseth (Aberdeen, S.D.) and Patty Olesen (Fargo, N.D.), who finished the week with an 8-3 overall record. The veteran Washington rink scored four points in the first end and followed up with steals of two and four before Gulseth scored a single and conceded the match. The Clarks won their first title in 2002 and again in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009 to remain as the most decorated mixed champions in U.S. history. Derek Surka’s team from Connecticut scored three points in the final end to win the bronze medal over Lori Karst’s team from Wisconsin. Surka (New Haven, Conn.) and teammates Charrissa Lin (New Haven, Conn.), Sean Murray (Edgewood, Md.) and Rachel Sethi (Falls Church, Va.) gave up a steal of one to Karst (Madison, Wis.) and teammates David Carlson (Portage, Wis.), Angela Montgomery (Fitchburg, Wis.) and Dan Wiza (Waunakee, Wis.) in the ninth end, making it a twopoint deficit, but they were able to earn three for the win. The Surka rink overcame a rough start to the week when they found themselves 0-3 after two days of competition before starting a winning streak to make a run at the playoffs.

sponsors

The U.S. Curling Association is proud to recognize the following sponsors who support our sport and organization.


Member services Get Connected with Compete-At Thanks to USA Curling’s exclusive partnership with Compete-At, the leading innovator of sport event management software, USA Curling’s member clubs are able to utilize an end-to-end sport event management platform. Our partnership with Compete-At not only helps with the management of our national-level events, it will also provide extensive event management and promotional tools and solutions to member clubs, such as bonspiel registrations and promoting social events at the local clubs. To find out more, go to www.Compete-at-Curling.com or www.usacurl.org websites.

Instructional Materials The USCA’s instructional brochures will have a new look for the 2010-11 season. The “USA Curling” brochure provides a colorful introduction for prospective curlers or those who would like to know more about the sport. The delivery, sweeping, strategy & spirit, safety & etiquette, delivery with the stick and wheelchair curling has been consolidated into one “Instructional” reference pamphlet offering all of the sport’s fundamentals in one. By following the steps in “Curling: A Lifetime Sport,” new curlers can be playing a game and enjoying success in less than an hour. To order the video, call the USCA office toll-free at 1-888-CURLERS (287-5377). A flyer, “Learn to Curl in One Hour,” is a follow-up to this video and is available upon request from the USCA office. Instructor training and certification also is available through the USCA. Also available is the excellent promotional video, “Sweeping the Nation.”

Curling Camps Curling camps for junior curlers continue to be popular. Camps are held annually – this year in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota. The camps help junior curlers increase their knowledge of the sport and improve their fundamental skills. The camps also serve to help identify future Olympic talent. Adults also have the opportunity to tune-up their skills. Upon request, adult camps are offered each fall at various locations to help recreational curlers get ready for the season.

Membership Conference The USCA Member Services Department aims to host one or two mini regional conferences annually. Conferences are offered to various states and regions throughout the United States. The most recent regional conference took place in Dallas, Texas, in June 2010. These conferences provide regional club representatives with opportunities to network with clubs in their respective areas as well as USA Curling staff and leadership members. Instructor courses, skills camps, guest speakers as well as other topics are addressed at the regional conferences. If you are interested in learning more, contact Beverly Schroeder, Director of Member Services, at 715-344-1199, Ext. 203, or by e-mail at beverly.schroeder@usacurl.org.

Member services College Curling College curling continues to build across the United States. This year’s National College Tournament showed steady participation. The College Curling USA program is under the direction of and funded by the Illinois State Curling Foundation and the USCA’s College Curling Committee. The ISCF began a college curling program in the late 1980s, and a successful national tournament has been held since the early 1990s.

Junior programs A Junior Merit program is available to member clubs for all ages of junior curlers, from beginner to the competitive youth/junior curler. The five-level program measures achievement at each stage by testing junior curlers’ knowledge of the sport and on-ice skills. Participants are awarded colored bars (red, blue, bronze, silver, and gold) to wear on their curling jacket at each merit level. A junior merit manual with on-ice skills assessment and written examination for each level can be obtained through the USCA office. An on-ice drills manual has been developed to help coordinate the on-ice skills test and is available on the USCA website at www.usacurl.org.

Member services

Donation program For the 2010-11 season, the USCA seeks to invigorate the Donation Program. Each U.S. Curling Association Board of Directors member will be a contact for your donations. A goal is to deepen and strengthen the support of grassroots curling through the financial support of curlers and fans. As donors, you are able to target 50 percent of the donations to one of two broad areas. The first area is supporting the USCA national championship events hosted at local curling clubs, which includes the Junior Nationals, Mixed Doubles Championship, Club Nationals, Men’s and Women’s Nationals, Senior Nationals and the Mixed National Championship. The USCA acknowledges the commitments and sacrifices that local curling clubs have in hosting USCA events. The second general area is USCA budget items that are under-supported in the budget process to which the donor may give needed additional support. These line items include travel for juniors to our Junior National Championship, travel and expenses for our senior national champions, support for junior camps and other Member Services programs that merit additional support. As has been tradition, donors of the USCA program will receive a pin to acknowledge your support. In addition, different premiums will be provided at different levels of support. This program has been exceptionally valuable for the maintenance of USCA programs to our member clubs and regions. We thank all of you for the support you have given the USCA over the years. Questions regarding the program can be directed to Dave Carlson, vice president of Marketing and Operations, 608-742-3049 or drcportagewi@frontier.com.
