A Major Step Forward

Civil engineer, current club member, and former club president Andy Banfield has been working very hard and for many months on our site plan and building drawings and has been attending meetings with the Adams Township Planning Commission to make sure everything we do is up to township codes and standards. While the board of commissioners awarded us preliminary approval, one last meeting with the Township Supervisors was necessary to secure full and final approval. Part of this approval process also meant that Andy was required to secure water and sewer utilities to the facility site.

We are very pleased to announce that on September 20, we received letters from both the water and sewer authorities approving our site for utilities! The Township Supervisor's meeting was held at 7:30 PM on September 23rd, and Andy presented the updated and revised plans as well the approval letters from the utilities. After a few very basic questions about the plans, we were given unanimous FINAL APPROVAL!

Two major steps remain to completing our path to our very dedicated curling facility. First is to transfer the title of the land donated to us, and second is to raise the remaining funds needed to start building. 

All donations are deeply appreciated and welcome. To donate, please visit our donation page or contact Building Committeee Chair, Brian Stuart (
