Coyotes Curling Club hosts first Circuit event

By Elizabeth Demers, USWCA

sic will be held Oct. 5-8 in Tempe, Ariz. Tis is the first Circuit event held in the region. Histori- cally, the growth of arena clubs and the popular- ity of open curling in the West were supposed to have limited the ability of Western clubs to host specifically women’s bonspiels. Yet the booming popularity of the Circuit and of women’s bon- spiels generally has created a fantastic opportu- nity for Coyotes, which has had dedicated ice for several years, to expand the Circuit in a region historically underserved by women’s curling. Te USWCA Circuit allows women to win


points in individual bonspiels in various regions, culminating at the end of each curling season in cash and prizes. Sponsors include Taco Bell, Goldline, the USCA, and Steve’s Curling Sup- plies. Donna Purkey, a founding member of the club, is a past president of the USWCA. Registration for the event is now open at www.
