Congratulations to the Doug Kauffman team (Doug Kauffman, John Rasmussen, Ken Trask, Liam Barksdale) won the USA Curling National Championship today with a 9-1 victory over John Wright's Illinois team. This marks the 46th National Championship by a team from the Granite Curling Club and the second in 2013.
In the women's bronze medal game, Seattle's Em good team (Em Good, Jill Lamberts, Jennifer Westhagen and Hannah Volkman) fell 11-1 to Norma O'Leary's Minnesota team to finish in 4th place.
Brady Clark and his teammates Sean Beighton, Darren Lehto and Philip Tilker achieved the highest honor in United States Curling. The team played the National Championship final in Green Bay, Wisconsin over the weekend and defeated Tyler George's rink for the national championship, and earned both the right to represent the United States at the Ford World Championships in Victoria, BC as well as a berth to the USA Olympic Trials in North Dakota this November.
A lack of daylight hours and subzero temperatures won't damper the beautiful backdrop of Fairbanks, Alaska, for 25 teams as the 2013 USA Curling Senior National Championships get underway this week at the six-sheet Fairbanks Curling Club. During the event, games can be followed and results will be posted at http://www.curlingrocks.net/ and http://www.curlfairbanks.org/Seniors.php.

The Washington State Curling Association and the Granite Curling Club are sponsoring a curling camp in Seattle on September 29 & 30, 2012. This is a unique opportunity aimed at men who are curling competitively or who are interested in making the transition to competitive curling. The program includes on and off-‐ice sessions. Lunch will be provided on Saturday only. Snacks will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday.
The Washington State Curling Association is looking for volunteers to act as content editors for our web site. We've been lucky enough to have an excellent content management system, but unfortunately haven't had the core of writers to generate timely and newsworthy content.
If you're interested, please let us know!
