What kind of fun could your group have at the Huntley Curling Club?
Check out this short video from the Alcatel Bonspiel Rental. Just one of many examples of the fun you have when you rent the ice at Huntley Curling Club!
So you Decided to Try Curling
Wonderful! This is a fantastic social sport and many who play once are often back many times.
The Huntley Curling Club, located next to the Carp Fairgrounds is a modern 4 sheet curling facility that can handle a total of 32 people playing at one time (4 per team, each throwing 2 rocks) and a two level lounge for those off the ice with a well stocked bar, and restaurant-style equipped kitchen. The lounge and curling sheets are separated by large glass window-panes making it easy for those in the lounge to sit back and watch your friends/colleagues play. Each sheet also is equipped with an HD camera so both players and spectators can see the action at the other end of the ice.
The facility offers locker rooms on the basement level; on the main level, the 120-person capacity lounge also has a dance floor.
Here are some things you and your group should know about renting ice
Footwear — The nice thing about curling is that it doesn’t require any special equipment making it ideal for groups to join in. All we ask is that each person wears a clean pair of flat running shoes. The club does have some slip-on sliders that can be used, as well there is usually slip tape available to stick to the bottom of your sliding foot.
Clothing — Curling ice is cool (about 4°C on the ice), much like going outside on a fresh sunny march day. We don’t expect you to freeze, in fact, some of our regular curlers play in a t-shirt, however, it is advised that you bring appropriate clothing to be comfortable. A long sleeve shirt or light jacket is preferable as you can add or shed layers, glove or mitts are also a good idea to keep your hands warm.
Brushes — The Huntley curling club owns and maintains brushes for our rentals, they are located along the south wall of the club.
The Game — A typical 8 end curling game typically lasts about 2 hours. However, that can be long for some new curlers and shorter games (6 ends) are often played. This also provides opportunities large groups to get more people out of the lounge and on the ice.
For rentals, we provide both club brooms and sliders
