We need a rink! Check! Currently have an agreement for regular events at the Marietta Ice Center. Long term we'd love to get our own space to maintain curling ice, but the club needs to grow into that.
We need financial sponsors. We are growing our funds with events we have, but curling is expensive. Money will help us continue to improve the quality of the ice and equipment to make curling in Atlanta more fun and rewarding.
We need stones ($7,000-$8,000 per set of 16). Check! We have 3 sets of loaner stones. We will need to grow and eventually get our own stones, but this works for now.
Additional ice prep tools needed: Hand ice scraper, leveling devices, thermometers, humidity measuring device in the medium term. Longer term need a powered ice cutter/scraper.
