Event description

Description

American Savings Bank (ASB)'s Hawaii Curling Club and USA Curling present a special opportunity to curl in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Meet Olympic curlers, experience Hawaiian culture, and curl in the 50th state. It’s a curling event unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!

Curling… in Hawaii??

Yes! In 2013, ASB formed the Hawaii Curling Club and its annual fundraiser to benefit a select Hawaii nonprofit. This year, ASB is pleased to introduce Curling with Aloha, an exclusive Hawaiian-style event for curling enthusiasts from around the world.

I heard there will be *special guests*?

You heard right. We'll have a couple of Olympic curlers at this event! Participants will have a special opportunity to meet - and curl with - the Olympians in person.

And we'll be curling for a cause?

This event will raise much needed funds for a local nonprofit in the Aloha State. All proceeds from this event will support our selected beneficiary. Stay tuned for more information.

How will the event work?

We’re offering two 120-minute sessions on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each session includes 90 minutes of curling time with hands-on instruction from the Olympians, plus use of curling equipment, traditional Hawaiian food and beverages, official "Hawaii Curling Club" merchandise, traditional lei welcome and autograph session with the Team USA Curling Olympians. Space in each session is limited, so sign up now to reserve your spot!

A few notes about the ice:

  • The sheets will be shorter (about 30 ft.): This event is being held in Hawaii’s only ice rink (what’s normally an ice-skating rink). Because of this, our icemakers will need to work within the facility’s parameters.
  • Speaking of ice makers, the ice is being prepared by USA Curling’s head ice technician alongside a former multiple-sport-use ice rink manager. This talented pair, which includes a certified Zamboni driver, will work day and night to flood, level, pebble and scrape the ice so that there will be speed and curl.
  • In case you’re wondering, the stones are REAL curling stones. Brooms and sliders will be available free of charge – though you’re welcome to cart your own gear along if you’d prefer.

By the way, you may wonder why we’re not having a formal bonspiel. That day may come, but we’re currently focused on delivering the best Hawaii curling experience possible. Remember, there’s only one ice rink in Hawaii, so ice time is at a premium.
