It's a wrap
Wahoo! The Ogden Curling Club made it through another epic season of “curling during the time of COVID 19”.
Wrapping things up with the 22nd Annual Rocky Mountain Bonspiel – congrats to Ogden Curling Club’s Team SL,UT, ‘A’ Bracket Winners (see Photo Gallery) and all who participated in making the Bonspiel a success.
Although 2020 brought about many changes, not only to the sport of curling but to the Ogden Curling Club itself, the one thing that sticks out the most is how strong the challenges made us as a club.
Whether it was only allowing one sweeper to sweep a stone, having to maintain 6 feet of social distancing when not sweeping or delivering a stone, having to wear a CDC approved mask at all times (both on and off the ice – even while sweeping) to the postponement of the traditional broom stacking after the draw, we came out better as members not only of the Ogden community but as a stronger club for having gone through COVID 19 and survived. We also learned a funny fact – that people look different when not wearing a mask then when they are wearing one. Example and true story - we had a league player sign up for the 22nd Rocky Mountain Bonspiel. When he came to sign in, I asked his name. He told me and at first I didn’t recognize him until he put his hand up to his nose…..AWE yes, now I know you.
But through it all, we never stopped growing as a club and we look forward to seeing everyone, both veteran curlers, new first season curlers and those wanting to learn this amazingly fun sport, back on the ice with us in Mid-September for our Pre-League Season Open House/Learn to Curl Event.
Until then, while we are dark for the summer and they take the ice down, we encourage everyone to get out there and support curling clubs. Whether you sub, just go and watch, or attending a bonspiel or two, be it a local club or you go national, every little bit helps as we are all anxious to get back to “a new normal”.
Have a safe and fun summer – Good Curling!
