The Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza!
Our curling season ends Saturday, April 21.
Potomac Curling Club re-opens early October.
What is the Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza?
The Saturday Morning Breakfast Extravaganza is curling for new and experienced curlers, club members and non-members, with ad hoc team formation the day of play. The emphasis is on our guests learning to curl and everyone having fun. Individuals, couples, and small groups are welcome. We provide instruction for guests and members, then serve breakfast, and then curl–it’s an Extravaganza!
Never curled before? That's OK!
This is your opportunity to give curling a try! For a $25 donation, guests will receive about an hour of instruction and practice, and will then be assigned to a team for a game after breakfast. Teams will consist of new and experienced curlers, and will be formed by the league coordinator during breakfast. We will do our best to accommodate requests for pairing with (or against!) spouses and friends.
Please arrive no later than 7:45 am so we can get you signed in and fitted with grippers. Wear warm, layered, loose fitting clothes and clean, flat-soled shoes. Sneakers, tennis shoes and athletic shoes are ideal. Non-flat sole shoes (e.g., heels) are unsafe on the ice and are not permitted.
A signed Liability Release Form is required for participation. Download our Liability Release Forms (pdf), or fill one out when you arrive at the club. The youth form must be signed by the youth’s parent or legal guardian at the club.
If you have a group of eight or more, then you may wish to consider a club rental. Rentals include use of our warm room, kitchen, all equipment, instruction and guided play — and there is no worry about getting everyone registered before all the guest slots are filled! Please see our club rental page for more information.
Advance registration is required.
A maximum of 32 curlers can be accommodated, so members and non-members must register online to reserve a spot. Twelve spots are reserved for non-members for each event. Registration for a given Saturday opens at 8:00 pm Wednesday evening ten days prior to the event date.
If the roster for a given Saturday is filled, then members and non-members may join a waitlist by sending a message to Breakfast@CurlDC.org. Be sure to include the date for the event you wish to attend. Persons on the waitlist are cleared as spots become available, up to approximately 6 pm the Friday evening before the event. Occasionally openings become available Saturday morning from no-shows or last-minute cancellations. You may want to try your luck filling an open spot by coming to the curling center Saturday morning; however, there is no guarantee that a spot will be available.
Registered but cannot attend?
If you have registered and find that you will not be able to attend, then please cancel your registration to free the slot for another member or guest. To cancel, use the link provided in your registration acknowledgement email message. If you no longer have the acknowledgement email message or otherwise encounter difficulty canceling a registration, then please send an email to the program coordinators.
On-ice instruction will be provided for all new curlers. Advanced instruction is almost always available (on request) for curlers with any level of experience.
