Did you know?

GNCC Historian
Did you know that at one time three Canadian clubs were members of the GNCC?  Did you know that the GNCC extended west as far as Minnesota?  Did you know that the GNCC had its own version of the Jamaican Bobsled team?  Anyone interested in trivia or our illustrious history, please keep reading.

One of the GNCC's newest clubs, the Rocket City Curling Club in Huntsville, AL just held it's first bonspiel. 32 teams from 10 states.

And the winners were - Team Lagavulin (Kenny Thomson, Gwen Krailo, Barb Thomson and Bob Hogan)


Meanwhile another of our new clubs - Rail City Curling Club in Altoona, PA - got some nice TV coverage.
Has your club held its annual meeting?
Did you elected new officers?
