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 39 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 16,000 curlers in the U.S., and 165 clubs across the U.S. Wisconsin has the largest concentration of curlers, with nearly 4,000, while the Grand National region along the East Coast now boasts close to 4,000 as well from its member clubs while Minnesota reports around 2,500. There also are substantial clubs in the Great Lakes region, Seattle and Fairbanks, Alaska, and even in Florida with the Panthers Curling Club in Coral Springs debuting in 2010, thanks to the TV expsoure the sport received on NBC during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. 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

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.

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.

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.

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.


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).

PARAlYMPIC hIsTORY Organized wheelchair curling in the United States began in the 1990s at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle. Since then, the sport has made great advancements. The first world wheelchair curling championship took place in 2002 in Sursee, Switzerland. Wheelchair curling debuted as a medal sport at the 2006 Paralympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. USA’s team, led by James Pierce, finished in seventh place. By 2008, Team USA had reached the podium to claim the program’s first medal when the Americans claimed bronze. This was the first and only world or Paralympic medal to date. In 2010, wheelchair curling was a medal sport for the second time at the Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Team USA, led by Augusto Perez, improved to a fourth-place finish with much of the same team members. While wheelchair curling is still growing in the United States, the program has made great strides in improving on the world scene at international bonspiels and championships.

fter claiming the Cup title a day early when they eclipsed the magic 201 points total necessary for the win, a bonus $13,000 and a piece of history were on the line on the final night at the 2011 World Financial Group Continental Cup at the Servus Credit Union

Place. The men’s “C” skins event closed out the Cup with a bonus $13,000 going to the winner of the match between Canada’s Kevin Martin and Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud in a re-match of not only the recent Olympic gold-medal final but the last Cup finale played in 2008. Norway marched in for the pre-game promenade wearing their Loudmouth pants and suit coats in a pink paisley pattern. Moments later, the umpire promptly asked them to change into their proper Team World uniform – basic black pants. Turns out that the Norwegians needed the lucky pants that were made so famous during the Vancouver Olympics as Martin’s four-some secured the bonus money and points record in the seventh end of the match. In clinching the win, North America amassed 298 points to Team World’s 102. The 298-point output is the most ever by a Continental Cup team, surpassing the 290 total North America posted in 2007 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Canada had a chance to clinch the bonus money in the sixth end when a 23-point skin was up for grabs, but it carried over into the seventh when the Olympic gold medalists couldn’t score the two points needed. To count a skin, the team with the last rock must score a minimum of two points. Ulsrud just missed a double takeout in the seventh end, despite proclaiming “show me the money” just before the rocks made contact. The miss left a Canadian rock closest to the button for the steal, and most importantly, the win as only 12 skins could be left to grab in the eighth end, which wouldn’t be enough. USA’s Erika Brown (Oakville, Ontario/Madison, Wis.) became the first American to win three Cup titles. This is the first Cup

ugusto Perez and Team USA won two of its final three games to finish in seventh place at the 2011 World Wheelchair Championship in Prague, Czech Republic. More importantly, the seventh-place finish secured a berth for the Americans in next year’s championship in South Korea. Perez (East Syracuse, N.Y.) and teammates James Pierce (North Syracuse, N.Y.), James Joseph (New Hartford, N.Y.), Jacqui Kapinowski (Point Pleasant, N.J.) and Penny Greely (Green Bay, Wis.) defeated Korea, 12-3, but then lost to Russia, 9-7, in a tough extra-end battle in round robin action. Needing a win in the round robin finale to stay ahead of Sweden, Germany and the Czech Republic, the Americans won their final match, 93, over the Czechs to finish with a 3-6 record. “The main goal was to qualify Team USA for 2012 worlds in Korea... done ... and also to obtain points for Team USA toward qualification for Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games ... done; we obtained four (points),” Perez said.

This was the second mixed doubles title for the pair, who also won in 2009. After going undefeated in the round robin, the Clarks had to defeat a strong Minnesota contingent to advance through the playoffs. In the first semifinal, the Clarks defeated Duluth’s Jared Zezel and Sophie Brorson, 9-7. Next up was Duluth’s brother-sister duo of Tyler George and Courtney George. The Clarks dispatched them 7-2. Up next were Minnesotans Clayton Orvik and Senja Lopac, who also finished the round robin with a perfect record. Since this was a double knockout competition, that gave both teams two chances to win the title. But, Orvik and Lopac would stumble in the first semifinal to the George siblings, 9-5. After the Clarks defeated the George rink, they would hand Orvik and Lopac a 9-4 loss courtesy of big steals to claim the championship title.

U

SA made its first appearance in the playoffs of the World Mixed Doubles Championship as Americans Brady Clark and Cristin Clark advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2011 World Mixed Doubles Championship in April in St. Paul, Minn. Unfortunately, the Granite Curling Club duo were knocked out of the playoffs by France, 8-6. France went on to eventually earn the bronze medal. This is the best USA finish since the event began in 2008. The Clarks also improved on their performance from two years earlier when they finished 18th overall. It was the end of a productive week for the Clarks, who battled through the round robin and won their final three matches to earn a playoff spot with a 5-2 record. The Clarks, who have won eight U.S. mixed national titles together, wish they could take back a game decision in the fourth end in the playoff game against France’s Amaury Pernette and Pauline Jeanneret, when they went for a lower percentage shot with a big reward that backfired and swung the game in France’s direction. The U.S. tried a tricky in-off with the hammer that resulted in them removing their shot stone and France stealing two. The U.S. bounced back with three in the fifth end as Cristin Clark made every shot in that end. France answered with two in the sixth end. The U.S. countered by attempting to draw for two points in the seventh, but Brady Clark was heavy with his final draw and nudged his shot rock out of scoring position and France had a 7-6 lead. In the final end, Brady Clark used his final stone to attempt a runback to chip it out but couldn’t convert. Switzerland defeated Russia for the gold.

USA’s Cristin Clark (above) along with husband Brady Clark had a big year in 2011 as the couple won both the U.S. mixed doubles title as well as their third straight (and eighth overall) U.S. Mixed National Championship. The Clarks also welcomed a baby boy into their lives in July as Cristin was six months pregnant while competing at the World Mixed Doubles in St. Paul.

JUNIOR NATIONAls 2011 U.s. Junior Nationals Jan. 29-Feb. 5 • Fairbanks Curling Club Fairbanks, Alaska

W

isconsin’s Becca Hamilton rink and Minnesota’s Aaron Wald team won the 2011 USA Curling Junior National Championships (age 21 and under) Feb. 5 in Fairbanks, Alaska. Wald and teammates Joshua Bahr (Bemidji, Minn.), Jared Zezel (Hibbing, Minn.) and John Muller (Hibbing, Minn.) finished runner-up at the past two Junior Nationals and can now put those second-place finishes behind them as they defeated Stephen Dropkin’s team from Massachusetts, 6-3. “We’re excited. This is my last year as a junior and our last chance to get together,” Wald said. “We played the best we could, and we hoped it would go our way.” Hamilton (McFarland, Wis.) and teammates Tara Peterson (Eagan, Minn.), Karlie Koenig (Oconomowoc, Wis.) and Sophie Brorson (Duluth, Minn.) return to familiar turf as junior champions. Peterson and Brorson have now won three straight titles while Hamilton and Koenig were teammates back in 2008 when they won the title. In their first year playing as a team, that past experience on the international stage favored the Wisconsinbased team as they defeated Minnesota’s Miranda Solem, 11-4, in the first appearance in the gold-medal game by Solem and teammates Miranda Schieber (Portage, Wis.), Julie Lilla (Trempealeau, Wis.) and Chelsea Solem (Cohasset, Minn.). “We came out strong, and it was all downhill after that,” Hamilton said. Dropkin and his team of Korey Dropkin (Southborough, Mass.), Thomas Howell (Brick, N.J.), Derek Corbett (Rochester, N.Y.) and Cameron Ross (Princeton Junction, N.J.) only led briefly when they got the first points of the game with a steal of one point in the third end. The Hamilton rink took a less dramatic route to their junior national title as they catapulted to a 5-0 lead after three ends of play against the Minnesota state junior champions. Solem’s team got in the game with a deuce in the fourth but couldn’t catch up to the Wisconsin team and surrendered four points in the eighth end that sealed the win for Hamilton’s rink. Hamilton said it was “a bit never-wracking” in the seventh end, but Minnesota was able to pick up only one point. “But, we came back with four in the eighth, and it was over,” Hamilton said.

U

SA’s men’s team got off to a rough start to the 2011 World Junior Championships at the Dewars Centre in Perth, Scotland, finishing the week on a three-game win streak to finish sixth. Aaron Wald (Chisholm, Minn.) and his team of Joshua Bahr (Bemidji, Minn.), Jared Zezel (Hibbing, Minn.), John Muller (Hibbing, Minn.) and John Landsteiner (Duluth, Minn.) finished on a high note in the round robin finale with a 6-4 defeat of China’s Jihui Huange rink. “We’ve had a rough time, but finishing the last three games winning was nice,” said Wald, who was playing in his final game as a junior. “Toward the end of the week we came together a little bit and decided to curl a little better. We’ve just had fun and didn’t need to think about winning or losing, we sportsmanship just went out and had fun.” Award The U.S. men took the lead with a deuce in the 2011 Roger Gulka sUI third end and then followed 2010 Aaron Tasa USA 2009 Markus Hoiberg Norway up with a steal of one on 2008 Matt Hamilton USA the Chinese.

T

he USA’s run at the 2011 World Junior Championships came to an end when the American ladies lost to Canada, 9-3, in a tiebreaker game at the Dewars Centre in Perth, Scotland. Becca Hamilton (McFarland, Wis.) and the American ladies were trying to earn a second straight playoff appearance at the World Juniors for the U.S. after the Americans won bronze in 2010, but Canada’s Trish Paulsen had other plans as the Canadians beat the Americans for the second time in less than a day to eliminate the U.S. from earning a coveted playoff berth. Hamilton and teammates Tara Peterson (Eagan, Minn.), Karlie Koenig (Oconomowoc, Wis.), Sophie Brorson (Duluth, Minn.) and alternate Rebecca Funk (McFarland, Wis.) finished fifth overall. The match-up with Canada was somewhat similar to their round robin game as the U.S. ladies fell behind quickly in the first half of the match and were not able to stage a comeback. “Things were just not going our way today. Not enough ice, turned it in. It was kind of the turn of the game. I think our shoulders went down a little bit,” Hamilton said. “It’s my first year skipping so I am happy to be at the worlds,” Hamilton said. “We have one more year of juniors together, so hopefully we’ll see everyone in Oestersund again!” This was the third straight World Juniors appearance for Peterson, 19, and Brorson, 20, and second overall for sportsmanship Hamilton, 20, and Koenig, Award 17.

fter coming so close so many times in the past few years, Patti Lank was crowned national champion once again after defeating Allison Pottinger’s team, 9-4, in the gold-medal match on Feb. 19 at the 2011 USA Curling National Championships at Scheels Arena in Fargo, N.D. With the win, Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) and teammates Caitlin Maroldo (Rochester, N.Y.), Jessica Schultz (Richfield, Minn.) and Mackenzie Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) represented the U.S. at the 2011 Capital One World Women’s Championship in Esbjerg, Denmark, where the team finished seventh. “I think this one is special because I’ve been working with these girls for so long, and for Cait, this is her first time and she’s been working so hard,” said Lank, who also won titles in 2004, 2002, 1999 and 1997 to tie her with Debbie McCormick for the most U.S. Women’s Nationals titles as a skip at five. “It feels good not to be crying after a game because I’m sad. These are happy tears.” Lank finished runner-up the past three years and four other times since her first national championship appearance in 1994. Nine-time U.S. champion and 2010 Olympian Pottinger put the loss on her shoulders after the game. “I played poorly. I missed some shots that you can’t miss. Patti played really well,” Pottinger said. “This was my first time skipping, and I’m proud of this team. They played really well all week.” Pottinger and teammates Nicole Joraanstad (Madison, Wis.), Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.) and Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) added silver to an impressive stack of medals won by this group of athletes in the past two decades at junior nationals, women’s nationals and world competitions. The women’s Ann Brown Sportsmanship Award was presented to Chrissy Haase (Schenectady, N.Y.). The award honors the late Ann Brown from Chicago who contributed greatly to the sport of curling. The award is voted on by the participants and is presented to the two athletes (one male, one female) who best exhibit fair play and sportsmanship on the ice.

T

eam USA had a familiar look at the 2011 men’s world championship as Pete Fenson of Bemidji, Minn., defended his team title with an extra end steal against Tyler George’s team on Feb. 19 to finish the weeklong competition with a perfect 11-0 record at the 2011 National Championships at Scheels Arena in Fargo, N.D. With the win, Fenson earned his seventh national title and second in a row. Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.) and teammates Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and Ryan Brunt (Bemidji, Minn.) went on to represent the U.S. at the 2011 World Men’s Championship in Regina, Saskatchewan where the team finished 10th. With seven men’s Nationals titles and five as a skip, Fenson now leads both categories. “It always feels good,” Fenson said. “This victory was sweet. We had to hang in there until the last shot.” This is the fifth title for Rojeski, fourth for Polo and first for Brunt (all with Fenson as their skip). “It feels great,” Polo said. “This is my fourth one, and I am really excited and can’t wait to go to worlds.” Fenson is the first skip to win back-to-back titles since he last accomplished the feat in 2006 and 2005, but this year’s title didn’t come easy. Fenson, 42, was in unfamiliar territory throughout most of the match against 28-year-old George (Duluth, Minn.) and teammates Chris Plys (Duluth, Minn.), Rich Ruohonen (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) and Phill Drobnick (Duluth, Minn.), and just barely scored a single in the 10th to force an extra end. In the 11th, George tried to come around the guards in the top of the house and bury his stone in the four-foot with his first throw but came up just short of the rings. Fenson, the 2006 Olympic bronze medalist, sealed the win with a perfect draw to the four-foot that George could not best with his final throw. “I blew it with the first one. It came out of my hand kinda weird,” said George who won the title with Fenson last year playing lead. “I give them credit. We played almost as good as we could. The guys deserved to win today ... they played fantastic, and I just hiccupped.” The men’s Ann Brown Sportsmanship Award was presented to 2011 bronze medalist Todd Birr (Mankato, Minn.). The award honors the late Ann Brown from Chicago who contributed greatly to the sport of curling. The award is voted on by the participants and is presented to the two athletes (one male, one female) who best exhibit fair play and sportsmanship on the ice.

MEN’s WORlD ChAMPIONshIP 2011 Ford World Men’s Championship April 2-10 • Regina, Saskatchewan

W

hat a difference a year makes. A year ago in Cortina, Italy, Pete Fenson and Team USA’s record was 8-3 and they were prepping for a run in the playoffs. Fast forward a year and in an odd turn of events, the Americans finished the week in Regina, Saskatchewan, at the Brandt Center with the record in reverse as the round robin came to a close at the 2011 Ford World Men’s Championship. Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.) and teammates Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.) and Ryan Brunt (Bemidji, Minn.) were trying to play spoiler in the round robin finale as Thomas Dufour’s France rink sought a spot in the playoffs for France for the first time since 1973. It would be the French men, with Tony Angiboust throwing last rocks, smiling as the final stone was thrown to convert a double takeout for the 9-7 victory. With the loss, the U.S. finished with a 3-8 record, equating to 10th place in the field of 12 teams. “I told the guys tonight to have a good time out there. We can’t win the bonspiel, but we can win the game. There’s a big crowd, we’re here, go out and have a little fun and see what we can do,” Fenson said. “It was fun for awhile. It was a hard game, which is what you expect, but we tried to enjoy ourselves the most we could, and we’ll go like crazy to try to get back here again.” With the win, France moved on to play Norway in a tiebreaker match, which they lost 5-4. For the Americans, the end of the round robin brought the completion of a frustrating week battling the ice. “Same deal, we missed a few draws early and we just didn’t pick up the ice fast enough again and missed a few shots because of it. That’s kind of the tale of the whole week,” Fenson said after the game. “The ice is good; we just didn’t get it every game. We didn’t have a perfect line on some hits and didn’t have the perfect speed on some draws. We made some, obviously, but weren’t as sharp as we had to be, and that’s it. We were trying, working hard trying to get it, and just never really, really got it. Tonight was not all that different. The French played great, too. They made the shots they had to make, and that was it.” Canada’s Jeff Stoughton rink went on to defeat Scotland’s Tom Brewster team, 6-5, to win the gold medal. Sweden’s Niklas Edin defeated Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud, 7-6, to earn the bronze. Ulsrud was honored with the Colin Campbell Sportsmanship Award. The 2012 World Men’s Curling Championship will take place March 31-April 8 in Basel, Switzerland.

2011 Capital One World Women’s Championship March 19-27 • Esbjerg, Denmark

atti Lank and Team USA finished the week defeating the top-seeded and eventual champions from Sweden to finish in seventh place at the 2011 Capital One World Women’s Curling Championship at Granly Hockey Arena. With the win, Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) and teammates Debbie McCormick (Rio, Wis.), Jessica Schultz (Richfield, Minn.), Caitlin Maroldo (Rochester, N.Y.) and Mackenzie Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) ended with a 6-5 record after defeating Sweden, 8-3. “That’s the way we’re supposed to play,” Lank said after the win. To sum up the week, Lank said the team played “hot and cold.” The team used multiple lineups, including three-time Olympian McCormick, who came into the tournament as the alternate, in an effort to find the best combination on the ice to position themselves for a shot at a medal. “It was good when we all finally got on the same page,” said Lank, who has now played in five world championships. “I wish we had one more game. I wish I could take back that shot against Scotland.” Lank missed an open takeout in the USA’s third game of the tournament that may have haunted the team. “We’re disappointed that we didn’t medal, but we feel like we represented the U.S. very well,” said McCormick, a three-time Olympian and 2003 world champion. Anette Norberg’s Swedish team clinched a playoff spot and a spot in the Page 1-2 game prior to the round robin finale against the Americans. Sweden went on to defeat Canada, 75, to earn the gold medal. China battled through an extra end to defeat host Denmark, 10-9, to earn the bronze medal.

isconsin’s Geoff Goodland led his team to victory at the 2011 USA Curling Senior Men’s National Championships (age 50 and over) held at the Broomstones Curling Club in Wayland, Mass., and The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. This marked the second World Seniors appearance for Goodland, who won the U.S. senior title in 2007, but first for teammates Pete Westberg (Naperville, Ill.), Tim Solin (Mahtomedi, Minn.) and Ken Olson (Plymouth, Minn.). The men’s division featured 27 teams at the start of the competition on Feb. 2. Playing in a bracketed triple knockout, Goodland’s team captured both the “B” event and the “C1” event to punch an automatic berth in the championship final. Phil DeVore’s team from Minnesota won the “A” event after defeating Goodland but had to play Ross Litman’s Minnesota team in a semifinal matchup after Litman’s Duluth Curling Club team won the other “C” bracket. In the semifinal game, DeVore got past Litman, 6-4, paving the way to the championship final match-up with Goodland’s team. In the final, Goodland struck first with a deuce in the first end. DeVore (Superior, Wis.) and teammates Larry Sharp (Rice Lake, Wis.), Seppo Sormunen (Duluth, Minn.) and Doug Cameron (Duluth, Minn.) were forced to a single in the second end but tied the game at 3-3 in the fifth. That’s when the momentum swung back in the favor of Goodland’s team as they scored four points in the sixth and held DeVore to a single in the seventh and ran them out of rocks to seal up the 7-4 victory.

he American ladies, led by Margie Smith (Shoreview, Minn.), fell to Switzerland’s Chantal Forrer, 5-4, in the bronze-medal game to finish fourth at the 2011 World Senior Championships held at the St. Paul Curling Club. “This is disappointing. We had a good week and after finishing second in the round robin we figured we would be at least two or three,” Smith said. This was the first bronze medal for this particular Swiss skip, but overall the Swiss have won six medals at Senior Worlds. “It’s paradise on Earth – it’s brilliant,” said Swiss Skip Chantal Forrer after the game. “Especially after this morning’s game where we lost by so little. The Americans played very well. It was a good game.” Smith and teammates Debbie Dexter (St. Paul, Minn.), Shelly Kosal (Edgerton, Wis.), Sally Barry (Eagan, Minn.) and Rachel Orvik (Shoreview, Minn.) finished the week with an 8-4 overall record. The U.S. ladies took an early advantage with a steal in the second end. They would add to the scoreboard when Smith drew for a single in the fourth end to extend the lead to 3-1. Switzerland earned a deuce in the fifth and stole a single in the sixth. The U.S. ladies were forced to a single in the seventh end to tie the game. Trying to steal the final end, Smith tried to tuck her last stone behind a corner guard to force the Swiss ladies to make their final shot, but she came up short of the house. “It was really close, just a shot here or there. We had a couple of missed opportunities and that’s all it takes,” Smith said. “They played really well. There’s always next year.”

n true dramatic fashion, the men’s gold-medal game went into an extra end as Team USA lost on the last rock to Canada, 5-4, April 23 at the 2011 World Senior Championships at the St. Paul Curling Club. Canada’s women also won the gold by defeating Sweden, 9-2. Geoff Goodland’s final stone of the extra end was heavy and hung out, slipping to the back of the house to give Canada’s Mark Johnson the win. Goodland (Eau Claire, Wis.) and teammates Tim Solin (Mahtomedi, Minn.), Pete Westberg (Naperville, Ill.), Ken Olson (Plymouth, Minn.) and Phil DeVore (Superior, Wis.) took home the silver. “I was surprised at how fast the first four ends went. Both teams played really well, and the fans had a lot of fun watching it. While we would have liked to have won the gold, we played really well,” Olson said. “To play that well in a gold-medal game, you can’t ask for anything more other than getting the gold. I have no regrets from this weekend.” This was the seventh gold medal for the Canadian men. “That was a great game. It was so close all the way,” Johnson said. “With good shots being made by both teams all the way, it was one of those games that you didn’t know who was going to win it. The pressure was on quite a bit and stealing the point in the extra at the end there was very fortunate.” Australia’s Hugh Millikin earned the bronze medal by defeating Denmark, 8-5.

ew Jersey’s Janice Langanke rink captured the women’s title of the seventh edition of the USA Curling Club National Championships held at the Mankato Curling Club in Mankato, Minn. Langanke (Middletown, N.J.) and her Plainfield Curling Club team of Rachel Howell (Brick, N.J.), Shara Dellatore (Stewartsville, N.J.) and Barbara Klug (Gillete, N.J.) earned a single with the last rock of the game to defeat Washington’s Em Good rink, 6-5. The New Jersey ladies got out of the gates quickly in this match as they stole three points over the first two ends of play. Washington scored singles in the next two ends but never took the lead. Good’s team would finally tie the game with a deuce in the ninth, but Langanke held on for the win in the 10th by scoring a point. “Winning a national curling championship has been a lifelong dream of mine, so this feels great,” Langanke said. “I am really proud of my team, they fought so hard despite being sick and exhausted. We played a total of 108 ends out of a possible 110 during the week, so none of our games came easy. Many thanks to the Mankato Curling Club for making us feel at home, and thanks to our GNCC friends for cheering us on.” This is the first Club Nationals title for Langanke’s team. In the bronze-medal match, Beth Bohlman’s North Dakota team captured the got on the podium after stealing the final three ends to defeat Minnesota’s Shelly Kinney rink, 8-7.

innesota’s Seppo Sormunen rink earned the men’s title at the 2011 USA Curling Club National Championships held at the Mankato Curling Club in Mankato, Minn. Sormunen and his Duluth Curling Club teammates Jeff Ritchie (Cloquet, Minn.), Michael Huska (Duluth, Minn.) and Roger Hendrickson (Duluth, Minn.) defeated Jeff Wright’s Illinois team, 8-7, in dramatic extra-end fashion. It was a tight match until the eighth end when Sormunen’s team, trailing 5-2 at the time, scored four points to take the team’s first lead. A steal of one in the ninth was answered by Illinois with a deuce to tie the game and send it into overtime where Minnesota prevailed when they scored a single. “The caliber of play at this event was outstanding,” Sormunen said. “It really embraces the whole sport of curling and gives us a chance to compete with teams at our level. It’s not about go out and recruit a team, it is about guys who play together all season long in league and at bonspiels. It gives us a chance to represent our clubs.” Sormunen’s team had to get through a tiebreaker first by defeating Michigan’s Chad Roberts and then take on the top seed, North Dakota, in the semifinals before reaching the goldmedal match. “It forces a club curler to really work on the game and bring your team to that next level,” Sormunen said. “The event is such a great experience and it’s less cut-throat than say a Nationals that’s leading to worlds. It’s about camaraderie. The banquet on Saturday night was great because everyone felt like they’d won something.” In the bronze-medal match, Washington’s Benj Guzman rink defeated Ryan Berg’s squad from North Dakota, 9-5.

T

he Granite Curling Club’s Brady Clark rink continues to build upon its mixed curling dynasty as the Washington team defeated Alaska, 6-5, on March 26 to win the 2011 USA Curling Mixed National Championship in Midland, Mich. This is the eighth U.S. mixed title from Brady Clark and wife Cristin Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.), third win for Phil Tilker (Seattle) and seventh title for Bev Walter (Seattle). Earlier this season, the Clarks won their second mixed doubles title and also represented the U.S. at the World Mixed Doubles Championship in April. “It was a great event with great competition,” Brady Clark said. “The final was a well-played game, and Alaska was a great opponent. We are thankful to have won this championship.” Alaska’s team of Steve Shuttleworth, Kaye Hufman, Greg Persinger and Cathy Shuttleworth (all of Fairbanks) fell behind 2-0 at the start of the match. Alaska tied the game with a steal in the fourth to which Washington countered with a deuce to take a 4-2 halftime lead. Washington held Alaska to a single in the sixth and then scored another deuce to keep control of the match. After being limited to yet another single in the ninth, Alaska needed to steal two in the 10th to try to force an extra end. But, the 2004 mixed champion Shuttleworth was able to steal just one point, and Washington’s Clark rink claimed its eighth title in 10 years. Maryland’s Scott Edie rink held off a late rally by Ohio’s Robb Borland to win the bronze-medal match, 10-7, in an extra end. Edie (Middletown, Md.) and his team of Jennifer Atkinson (Harwood, Md.), Sean Murray (Edgewood, Md.) and Rebecca Baxter Erickson (Wheaton, Md.) quickly built a 4-0 lead over Ohio. Borland (Kent, Ohio) and his team of Else Festerson (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio), Matt Dolloff (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) and Julia DiBaggio (Garfield Heights, Ohio) started to battle back in the third end as they scored a deuce and then stole three points over the next two ends to take a 5-4 advantage. Maryland countered with a deuce and a steal to pull ahead once again, 7-5, after eight ends. Ohio was held to a single in the ninth but stole the 10th to force an extra end. Maryland would clinch the bronze medal by hanging three points on the scoreboard in the 11th.

MEMBER sERVICEs Team Fan shop USA Curling has signed on with Team Fan Shop to offer our members and fans great deals on curling-related apparel and merchandise. See ad on Page 139. Look for this great new online store this fall via the USA Curling website at www.usacurl.org.

Online Event Registration Keeping our members wants and needs in mind, and after looking at several online registration systems available, the 2011-12 season will feature a new online championship event registration system through League USA’s Sports Signup, a very user-friendly system that allows you to complete your online application from any internet-connected computer 24/7 (prior to the event’s deadline date). All events you are eligible to compete in are displayed for you. Connect to the system with a simple click on the link located at www.usacurl.org/curlingrocks in the “Championships” section. You can create an account for yourself and your immediate family as well as view a history of events that you’ve registered for through Sports Signup. Instant e-mail confirmations are generated upon completion of the registration process. USCA member clubs can use the system for bonspiel registrations with no contracts to sign and costs are nominally close to what they were previously. We hope you enjoy this new service.

Curling Camps Curling camps for junior curlers continue to be popular. Camps are held annually – this year in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Washington 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.

Instructional & Open house Materials A new instructional video was created in 2011 for clubs to use at open houses and other club events. The “Dare to Curl” video is available in two versions – a brief video that can be shown at open houses as well as a longer version suitable for more in-depth instruction on the basics of curling. A second video, “Sweeping the Nation,” serves as an excellent promotional piece. Both of these can be purchased by calling the USA Curling office at 888-287-5377. Instructional materials offered by USA Curling include our “USA Curling” brochure and our “Learn to Curl” pamphlet. The brochure provides a colorful introduction for prospective curlers or those who would like to know more about the sport. The pamphlet addresses technical components of curling such as delivery, sweeping, strategy, delivery with a stick, and wheelchair fundamentals, as well as the spirit of curling and safety and etiquette. Clubs receive promotional materials in the Member Services Fall Mailing each September. To order additional copies, call the USCA office at the phone number listed above.

College Curling

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.

Annual Appeal For the 2011-2012 season, the USCA will be launching a new annual membership appeal which will refresh the longstanding Annual Pin Donation Program. The annual appeal will reach out to curlers from across the country via multiple channels, including direct mail, e-mail, the U.S. Curling News, social media, electronic newsletter, and the USCA website. Support provided from the annual appeal will help the USCA continue to meet its mission of growing the sport of curling nationwide. Questions regarding the program can be directed to Dave Carlson, vice president of Marketing and Operations, at 608-742-3049 or drcportagewi@frontier.com.

MEMBER sERVICEs

The USCA College Curling Committee has two branches. The Intercollegiate Club and Varsity Curling (ICVC) has two primary goals: promoting the development of curling clubs in a college/university environment and encouraging these clubs to meet and compete against each other on a regular basis. The long-term goal is to transition curling from a club to a varsity-level sport at schools where it is appropriate to do so. Further information on the ICVC can be found on its website, www.intercollegiate-curling-usa.org, its Facebook page “US University Club and Varsity Curling,” or by contacting Gordon Maclean, USCA Director of College Curling, at 906482-6788. The College Curling USA program organizes and runs the National College Tournament. This event has been directed and funded by the Illinois State Curling Foundation since the early 1990s. Further information on the National College Tournament can be found at www.collegecurling.org.

AWARDs 2011 UsA Curling Athletes of the Year 2011 national champions Patti Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) and Pete Fenson (Bemidji, Minn.) have been named USA Curling’s 2011 Athletes of the Year. In addition, the 2011 world senior silver medal‐winning Geoff Goodland rink has been named 2011 Team of the Year. This is the second time Lank has been named Female Athlete of the Year. She previously won in 1999 and has been a member of the Team of the Year twice (2004 and 1999). Lank captured her fifth U.S. national title and first since 2004 when she Lank won the 2011 National Championships in February in Fargo, N.D. Lank and her team of Caitlin Maroldo (Rochester, N.Y.), Jessica Schultz (Richfield, Minn.), Mackenzie Lank (Lewiston, N.Y.) and alternate Debbie McCormick (Rio, Wis.) finished seventh at the 2011 Capital One World Championships in March in Denmark. This was the third time Fenson has earned Male Athlete of the Year honors. He previously won in 2005 and 2003 and was a member of the 2006 team that earned top honors. Fenson Fenson, who skipped the first and only U.S. team to an Olympic medal in 2006, finished 10th at the 2011 Ford World Men’s Championship in April in Regina, Saskatchewan, with teammates Shawn Rojeski (Chisholm, Minn.), Joe Polo (Duluth, Minn.), Ryan Brunt (Bemidji, Minn.) and Scott Baird (Bemidji, Minn.). Fenson captured his seventh U.S. national title back in February after making it through the week undefeated in the field of 10. This was his fifth title as skip, putting him at the top of the record books with the most U.S. men’s national titles in that position. Fenson is now the only male athlete to win the Athlete of the Year award three times. The women’s record‐holder is Lisa Schoeneberg, who has been Female Athlete of the Year four times.
