Welcome New Curlers!
Thank you for your interest in the the Chicago Curling Club's Learn2Curl program on Saturday, December 15th, 2012.
Below, please find some advance information on the day's activities.
Please note: our session starts promptly at 2:00 p.m. CST.
Please plan on arriving by 1:30 p.m.,to allow you time to complete remaining registration paperwork and change your shoes at the club before the session starts. We require each curler to sign a Liability Release form. You must complete this form prior to curling.
If you do need to cancel, PLEASE give reasonable advance notice and call the club or e-mail us at the above address. All of our Learn2Curl sessions become fully booked and we typically have a waiting list of eager curlers. If you cannot make it, please allow another curler to enjoy the afternoon. Note that Learn2Curl registration fees are non-refundable.
We will spend about 20 minutes discussing curling, including a short video, and doing some stretching. Lessons on the ice will take about 45-60 minutes, followed by a two-end simulated game for about 45-50 minutes. Finally, we will share some refreshments and answer your questions about curling and the Chicago Curling Club. Total estimated spent at the club for a Learn2Curl session is about 2 1/2 hours.
Bring warm clothing with you (including gloves and a hat, if you wish), as we will spend a good part of the afternoon on the ice with lessons and the simulated game. Some people find that layers help, in case you need to add or subtract, depending on the day's weather. Note that the Curling Ice House is not heated......with temperatures generally about 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit (0-4 degrees celsius.)
You must bring a separate pair of clean flat-soled shoes to wear on the ice. These CANNOT be your street shoes for that day. Clean running shoes or sneakers will work just fine. No leather soles or heels. Sorry, but no exceptions! Don't forget your shoes or you cannot curl!
We will supply all of the remaining necessary curling gear, including brooms, sliders, and, of course, the stones and the ice!
We are located at 555 Dundee Road (on the south side) about 0.2 miles west of I-94 (Eden’s Expressway) in Northbrook. The closest intersection is Dundee Road and Skokie Boulevard, which is just to the east of us.
Hwy41 / I94 (Eden’s Expressway) has a northbound exist at Dundee Road, and both a northbound and southbound exit at Lake Cook Road (to our north).
Interstate 294 has a northbound and southbound exit at Willow Road (to our south) and at Lake Cook Road (to our north). Note that there is no I-294 exit at Dundee Road.
The club telephone number, if you need to reach us that day, is 847.564.9877.
We will contact you if there are any last minutes changes due to weather or circumstances beyond our control.
We look forward to seeing you at our December 15th Learn2Curl!
