The 5 & Under Spiel is set to begin bright and early Saturday morning at 8:30am. This format is different than the "normal" spiel as each game is only 4 ends, everyone must place all positions at least once and is based on points earned. 60 curlers will be taking to the ice looking to take home the crystal so come on down and cheer them on. Spectators are always welcome.
The World Championships will be in nearby Victoria, BC March 30-April 7th, and the GCC's Team Clark will be on the ice as "Team USA." Here is a link to the Men's world Championship schedule; http://www.curling.ca/championships/worlds/drawschedule/
Imagine that - Brady Clark wins another national championship! But this was his first men's championship. Brady, Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto, and Philip Tilker assured themselves a slot at the Olympic trials with their incredibly close semi-final win on Friday evening. Today, they won a trip to the world championships in Victoria with a 6-5 victory over Team George in the final. Not to make it too easy, Clark and company gave up three in the eighth to trail by one. Then they blanked the ninth and took two in the tenth for the win.
Registration is open for the Ladies All-American Spiel. USWCA members register as individuals and the spiel chair forms the teams. Please note which position(s) you're able to play. This bonspiel is for all women curlers at Granite because you are all USWCA members. USWCA membership is the main requirement; it is not limited to U.S. citizens. We also welcome USWCA members from other west-coast teams. Sign up now! Deadline to register is March 1st.
Brady Clark and his wife Cristin (Lynnwood, WA) have won more national championships curling together (12) than any other duo in the history of United States Curling. They will look to add another title to that list in 2013, as they will represent the State of Washington at the 2013 US Mixed Curling Championships, March 16-23 in Wilmar, Minnesota.
