Waupaca Curling Club

HOME AND HOME

The Home and Home, also called Waupaca vs. Clintonville, is a friendly competition over bragging rights and ownership of the traveling Pinkerton trophy. Ray Pinkerton was a curling promoter during the 1940-50’s. He was responsible for the expansion of the Waupaca Curling Club to a four-sheet club and the founder of the Clintonville Curling Club. When the Clintonville curling club was first formed they didn’t have any stones. To solve this problem Ray would load up his station wagon with 32 stones from the Waupaca Curling Club and drive them over to Clintonville for their leagues. He would then return the stones to Waupaca the following week. So both the stones and Ray were at home in both Waupaca and Clintonville, hence the name “Home and Home.” Every spring the Waupaca and Clintonville Men compete to honor Ray Pinkerton for his dedication to our Clubs and the sport of curling.

FRIDAY NIGHT FUN NIGHT

What better way to spend an evening than by combining two Wisconsin classics, curling and a Friday night fish fry? This is a fun, non-competitive event open to both men and women with either a full or casual curling membership. This event happens every Friday; depending on the club calendar and ice maintenance. Signup sheets are posted in the club where members can signup as either a team or an individual. The Chairperson will makeup evenly balanced teams for those that signed up as an individual and pair up evenly matched teams to compete against each other. These short, 6-end games, start at 6PM and end around 7:30PM. After all the games are done, everyone meets at a local restaurant for a fish dinner.

 

CURLING IN THE GYM

Since 1997, the 5th grade students from the Waupaca School District have been coming to the Waupaca Curling Club to learn about the sport and sprit of curling. It all begins at the school where the students are taught the basics of the game and practice delivering wheeled stone replicas in the gym. After that, about 24 students at a time are brought to the Club for a three-hour session where they get to experience playing an actual game. The Club would like to thank the Waupaca School District and it’s Teachers for keeping this program running.

 

 


HOLIDAY PARTIES

A membership to the Waupaca Curling Club not only gives you a place to curl, but also a place to socialize and meet more people. Parties are held throughout the season celebrating various holidays. Members may also gather for other events such as the Super Bowl, Olympics, or even just to watch a Packer game.

 

ROAR'N ROOKIE BONSPIEL

The Roar’n Rookie is a club bonspiel that is only open to members of the Waupaca Curling Club. It is setup to give our less experienced and rookie curlers a chance to play positions they normally wouldn’t play in leagues as well as a taste of what an inter-club bonspiel is like. This is an open format bonspiel, meaning teams can be made of any combination of men and/or women; however, every team must have at least one rookie. This is a low pressure, highly social bonspiel. It’s hard not to have fun at the Roar’n Rookie!
