Thanks to everyone who participated in the inaugural Sawtooth Outdoor Bonspiel ("S.O.B.") on January 25-27, 2013. The event was a tremendous success, and a great time was had by all in attendance. Congratulations to Team I'd Hit That (Jamie Cochrane, Sam Goswell, Carissa O'Connor, Karen Trotter) of Calgary - the first ever "Champion SOB's". A giant thank you to all the BCC members who helped out, and especially to the SOB committee for lending their time and energy to this 'spiel, they did a fantastic job of putting on this event, and the standard they set will be hard to live up to in the future.

Teaching fifth and sixth graders how to curl in Enterprise, Oregon
On Monday, February 11, 2013, Boise Curling Club members Jared Belsher and Cat Uphoff were in Enterprise, Oregon, to teach 32 fifth and sixth graders how to curl at the community's outdoor ice rink. The kids loved it! Teachers at the Joseph Charter School in Joseph, Oregon, invited the Boise Curling Club to come and teach their students how to curl as one of their snow school activities. The teachers at the rink were just as excited as the kids were about curling and a few said they were going to try to make their own set of Frankenstones so they can start curling there. (Boise Curling Club member Rob Smith has written a manual on how to make his Frankenstones. You can download the manual here.)
Outdoor curling film shown at Banff Mountain Film Festival in Boise
Fourteen club members showed up at the Egyptian Theater in downtown Boise to watch the New Zealand outdoor curling film "Gone Curling." A few club members showed up early to hand out club brochures and Learn to Curl flyers. The president of the Boise Nordic Foundation and a representative from the Banff Film Festival mentioned our club's presence, our Learn to Curl on March 28, and the Sawtooth Outdoor Bonspiel. They even displayed one of our curling rocks on stage (see picture at left). Before the film started, the Banff Film Festival representative made an announcement that went something like this: "New Zealand isn't the only place in the world where you can curl outdoors. On January 25, ten curling teams gathered in Stanley, Idaho, to compete in the inaugural Sawtooth Outdoor Bonspiel."
Congratulations to "Slide & The Family Stone" for winning the 2012 Fall League!
