Stirling Curling Group

Stirling Curling Group. 

 

The group pursues the interests of all people curling at The Peak Ice Rink, Stirling, Scotland.

 

  •   To be a collective voice for all clubs and groups using The Peak Ice Rink
  •   To support the Development Officer to develop curling
  •   To manage The Peak Competitions and Leagues
  •   To liaise with Active Stirling on behalf of all curlers and to manage the relationship between Active Stirling and all curlers.

 

Membership is open to all clubs and groups  involved with the sport of curling at The Peak Ice Rink.

 

Scottish Curling held a roadshow of open meetings with members, around the country at the end of 2019. 

These meetings followed the successful roadshow that took place in summer 2018, that saw hundreds of people attend meetings to discuss the drafting of the new strategy for Scottish Curling.  

The Agenda featured:

  1. The Structure Review 2018-2020
  2. Scottish Curling Championships Review
  3. The World Men’s Curling Championship 2020 in Glasgow
  4. Questions and Answers from the floor
  • It was held on Wednesday 4th December – The Peak, Stirling.  6-8pm

Scottish Curling have posted two documents on their website about the roadshow, so if you missed the event, this gives something to read about what is happening.

This link is about the details of the structure review.

You will be aware the Men's World Curling Championships are coming to Glasgow in 2020, from 28th March to 5th April 2020.
 
Scottish Curling and Glasgow Life (who are organising the event on site for the City of Glasgow) are keen it receives maximum publicity and that it is a sell out. To that end they approached all Rinks to ask for a Rink Ambassador to promote the event within their rink, and to be a central point for questions in the Rink, and to push events to publicise the event. Derek Young has been nominated for this role at the Peak, Stirling.
 
The Emirates is an excellent venue, and this has the potential to be a world class event. Tickets for the event are now on sale for packages. Individual day passes will go on sale on 23rd October. Cost of a 9 day package is only £199.
 
If you have any questions on the event then please contact him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and he will do his best to get an answer for you. 
 
You will hear updates on a regular basis on the event as we hit key dates, and you will see promotional information in the the Peak Ice Rink.
 
Stirling Curling Group will also hope to do a lot to promote the event - so more to follow on this web site. For example, we are looking at organising a day trip to the event with travel included. If you are interested in this then let Derek know at the above email address.
