Buiilding Update as of May 4, 2013
Committee members met with the architect, contractor and steel provider on Thursday to discuss reconfiguration of the floor plan. We expect to receive a revised floor plan this week based on our discussions. The major change to the floor plan involves relocating the ice plant and storage rooms along the north side - east end of the building. This move will maximize the use of the square footage of the building and cause more efficient operating procedures.

Building Update as of April 9, 2013
Goal: Our goal is to build a dedicated curling facility in Metro Denver to open early 2014 in order to continue to support and develop the Olympic sport of curling and the capabilities of amateur athletes to participate in competitions. Our goals to further promote the sport include active participation in developing after school programs for children, teenagers, and young adults, developing programs for wheelchair curlers, hosting Learn-to-Curl events, bonspiels that will attract curlers across the nation, staying active within social networking marketing
With these goals the Denver Curling Club upholds its mission to teaching, developing, promoting, and to encouraging the sport and spirit of curling; and to developing youth and adult programs that lead to local, national, and international competitions. Donate.
