Windy City 2019 Arena Nationals Playdowns Registration
It is official, Windy City Curling has been selected to participate in both the Women’s and Men’s divisions at the 2019 Arena Curling Championships! This year the event is being held at Ice line Arena in Westchester, Pennsylvania, over the dates of May 5-11, 2019.
As you are all aware, we have plans to move into a dedicated curling facility in the near future. As a result, THIS WILL BE OUR LAST OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN ARENA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS.
If you are interested in entering a team to participate in the Windy City Playdowns, that will be used to determine the teams that represent our club in Westchester, please sign up here. This will be the only accepted registration method for our play downs.
Based on number of teams that register for the playdown event, Windy City Curling will determine a suitable format to select the final team for each division. Team skips will participate in this process, to have playdowns run a smooth as possible. Also note that based on number teams and ice availability at Seven Bridges, playdowns may need to occur at a third party site.
