We have been informed that the Community Center Arena will be used by the County Public Health Department as a vaccination center during the fall of 2021 and early winter of 2022. Despite this, there is a strong possibility that we will be able to curl from March 1 - May 31, 2022. More specifics will be worked out as we get closer, but at least one bonspeil (Futterer Memorial, starting Friday March 11) also seems likely.
The Cook County Curling Club is a non-profit organization located in Grand Marais, Minnesota on the shores of Lake Superior.
The Club provides recreational opportunities for all curlers. We are dedicated to the promotion and the coordination of the sport of curling to provide fun fellowship and family activities within the Cook County Community.
Curling is a game of skill and of traditions. A shot well executed is a delight to see and so, too, it is a fine thing to observe the time-honored traditions of curling being applied in the true spirit of the game. Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents. A true curler would prefer to lose rather than win unfairly.
A good curler never attempts to distract an opponent or otherwise prevent him/her from playing his/her best.
No curler ever deliberately breaks a rule of the game or any of its traditions. But, if he/she should do so inadvertently and be aware of it, he/she is the first to divulge the breach.
While the main object to the game of curling is to determine the relative skills of the players, the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship, kindly feeling and honorable conduct. This spirit should influence both the interpretation and application of the rules of the game and also the conduct of all participants on and off the ice.
