The Summer Spiel is set to kick off Friday with 32 teams playing down. The finals bracket is something to behold as the teams play for skins in order to win some cash. The Junior Nationals Committee is hosting a Car Wash fundraiser Saturday from 10am until 5pm. So bring down your vehicle to wash and watch some curling as well! Hope to see you there~
Reigning national champion Brady Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.) has been named USA Curling's top male athlete for 2013.
Clark, 35, who curls out of Seattle's Granite Curling Club, skipped his team to its first men's national championship title and led Team USA to a ninth place finish at the 2013 World Men's Championship where he was the top ranked skip in shooting percentage throughout most of the round robin.
Well, if you weren’t at the curling club on Saturday night, you missed a great AGM. Festive food and fun and the only thing missing was some good short jokes. Seems like they got exhausted last year. Personally, I was ready, but nothing came my way.
Just when you thought curling was over….it isn’t! The summer spiel is fast approaching and is scheduled for June 7th to 9th. There’s still room for more teams so if you’re interested in playing please register your team at http://curlingseattle.org/bonspiels?event=2013Summer&disp=signup to join in on the fun. Entry fee is $240 per team and it’s a three game guarantee.
Greetings fellow members,
As we move into May, some annual rites come to pass. The April Spiel is over, the first games of spring league have been played, the Finance Committee is discussing the budget and the Granite Curling Club Annual General Meeting (AGM) is rapidly approaching. It is important that you take the time to either attend the AGM or complete a proxy form. This can be found in the General Minute section of the website or check your email. You can also submit your proxy electronically by following the link below.
Tuesday proved to be a much better day for Team USA (GCC members Brady Clark, Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto, Philip Tilker) at the 2013 World Men's Curling Championships with a win over both China and Scotland.

The Granite Curling Club's junior boys under-18 team will be heading north on Wednesday, March 27th to participate in the 2013 Optimist International U18 Curling Championships at the Langley and Cloverdale Curling Clubs. The Optimist U18 Championship is the premier tournament for U18 teams throughout the world, and features some of the top young curlers from Canada, The United States and Japan.
With the new year upon us it’s time to start thinking about spring leagues. As with previous years, spring leagues are dependent on participation. For this reason it is very important to submit your registration before March 15th.
Due to insufficient entries, this spiel that was scheduled for March 23/24 has been canceled.
