This year Andy’s Curling League will begin on Saturday, October 26, with a free drop-in session from 9:00 am until noon for anyone interested in trying curling or in finding out more about the program. The league will not have any fees due to generous donations from Dow Chemical and the United States Curling Association’s Darwin Curtis Fund Grant Program. More details and league schedules will be discussed during the drop-in session.
Midland Curling Center is located at 2009 Jefferson Ave Midland, MI 48640.
Stop on out October 26th and give Curling a chance. You may get hooked!!
Andy’s League was established two years ago by the Midland Curling Club so people with physical or developmental disabilities, along with their family, friends, and support staff, could try curling, and so the club could determine their ongoing level of interest. It is named after Andy Young, a Special Olympian who had been curling for 6 years in the Sunday Afternoon Youth Curling League at the Midland Club. In its first year, 75 people tried curling in Andy’s League, and about 20 people came regularly. The club hopes to build on this foundation in the 2013-2014 season.
