Who are we?
Glacial Ridge Curling is a non-profit organization dedicated to the sport of curling. We legally formed in the spring of 2005 and received our 501C(3) federal tax status in the summer of 2008. Glacial Ridge Curling has an active Board of Directors with an aggressive approach to fundraising and program development. We are also very progressive and innovative in the art of converting arena ice into curling ice and back again, and have very high standards terms of equipment and ice making for arena curling.
What do we do?
In addition to adult leagues we also help organize and facilitate several other curling programs in the community including; high school P.E., junior curling, and Community Ed and Rec Open Curling. We staff these events and provide the necessary instruction and coaching.
We actively promote curling locally as well as regionally. Every year our season begins with an open house and ends with a banquet; during the season we host at least two bonspiels. Whenever possible, club members and equipment help with open houses in surrounding communities working on getting curling started; some of these include Alexandria, Brainerd, Litchfield, Walker and Buffalo; of which Alexandria and Brainerd now have active curling clubs, and Brainerd just recently built a dedicated curling facility in partnership with the Crow Wing County Fair Grounds.
