Team Eisenman Scores First 8-Ender in 20 Year History of the CCCC

Team Eisenman scored the first eight ender in the history of the Copper Country Curling Club on Saturday, 3/8/2014. The feat took place in the 2nd end of the Tuesday League Championship Game.

Eisenman had seven stones in the house and Team Strome had an open hit and stick for one, however the shot over curled and knocked in an Eisenman stone for a steal of eight!  The six foot biter stick was needed to check the distance on one of the stones. 

The Eisenman team consisted of: Paul Eisenman (skip), Walt Milligan (third), Katie Jo Wright (second) and Dan Fuhrmann (lead).

Jan 18, 2014- First Games Ever on Fort Wayne Curling Club Dedicated Ice

 

Our first day of curling in the new facility. We did a little bit of work and then played a couple of pickup games.

 

We started the day with Jerri and Lynn individually throwing some stonesfor practice...something we were never able to on arena ice.

 

People went out and threw some practice stones and then after ashort break for pebbling, we started up a couple of games. These werethe first ever games at the new facility. Pam, Logan, Russell and Iplayed against Steve, Kenton, Keith and Sam on sheet 3 while Eric, Bruce, Bob, Andy, Sharpie and Marty played on Sheet 1. Scores aren'timportant. What was important is that the ice was fantastic. Not an S curve, fall, valley, ridge or divot in sight.

 

At one point, I asked the participants to rate the experience on a scaleof 1 to 10. I got lots of tens, three twelves and one twenty-five.

 

GLCA Junior Curlers fought it out at the Mayfield CC on December 27 and 28, 2013.

 

 

On the Womens side, the Schroeder team Skipped by Sidney Schroeder along with her sister Alexis and Kayla Beauregard and Claire Visconti defeated the team Skipped by Elizabeth Roden, with Madelyn Graves, Maya Willertz and Haylee Snyder by scores of 11-1 and 10-4. Both teams were based out of the Midland Curling Club.

 

For the Men, Wesley Pederson Skipped Aaron Carlson, William Kent, and Wesley Swartz from the Midland Curling Club defeated the Shaner team from the Mayfield Curling Club, with Aubrey Shaner Skipping Benjamin Schmidt, Gavin Shaner, and Ryan Connolly by scores of 12-4 and 9-5.

 

Congratulations to these great young curlers, and Good Curling at the Nationals in Seattle.
