Bins are setup and ready for recycling. Everything recyclable can be placed in one bin - co-mingled. Items that can be recycled include plastic # 1 & 2, tin, glass, aluminum, paper, cardboard but NO ice cream buckets, # 5 & 6 plastic, yogurt containers, Styrofoam, or really dirty items. For the crew cleaning after curling; please place the recyclables in the rolling bin next to the outside dumpster. Thanks to everyone for considering the environment, and helping our club become a greener place! New (more visible) bins are coming this December - be on the lookout!
The the ice will not be available Thanksgiving Weekend (Nov. 29-Dec.1) due to the switch over of new stones.
The Centerville Curling Club hosted a FREE open house on Sunday, November 10, 2013. About 30 people came to learn about curling and check out the facility. Members were on hand to help instruct.
The club has decided to purchase 5 new sets of Common Green granite with blue hone double sided insert curling stones from the Kays of Scotland. These Olympic Standard stones should provide improved quality of play for years to come. Since a shipment was delayed from Scotland, the new stones will most likely arrive early November. Most likely, not in time for the season to begin. Along with new stones, the club has purchased a dehumidification system. This system is up and ready for the start of the season. Make sure to book your visit to Centerville to check out the improvements this season.
Centerville Curling Club is getting greener. Keep an eye out for new recycling bins and guidelines this fall! Members of the women's club are working to have bins to recycle aluminum, glass, paper throughout the club.... More details to come!

At the April 17th, Annual Spring Meeting, members of the club approved authorizing the board to purchase new stones and dehumidification. Soon there after, the board approved purchasing both items. With input and research from the Stone Committee arrangements are being made to place the stone order this spring. We have been told that the new stones will most likely arrive in time for the upcoming 2013-2014 season. Likewise, dehumidification will be installed this summer.

On Thursday, March 28th, the last stone of the season came to a rest. On Saturday, March 30th about 20 different club members spent about 2 1/2 hours working to remove the ice. Thanks to the Delaney loader, the Trim Tractor, and the Brenengen Truck, along with many other people the process went smoothly. Ice will again be ready for curling by the 1st part of November. Stay cool this summer!
