The Curling Challenge Returns

by TruexCullins, March 14, 2012

Mark your calendars for the Third Annual HowardCenter Curling Challenge, the only curling fundraising event in Vermont. On Saturday, March 31st, up to 48 teams will be competing for the prestigious Curling Challenge Trophy while raising money for the HowardCenter, a private, non-profit human services agency here in Burlington.
The HowardCenter cares for families and individuals dealing with mental illness; alcohol and substance abuse; and intellectual disabilities, including autism. The Curling Challenge is a fun way to support an organization doing great work in our community.

This year, TruexCullins is doubling our efforts and fielding 2 teams for the challenge. We are counting on this increased manpower to sweep our way to victory.

Wondering what this is all about? Check out this video from last year’s event:

There is still time to join! Visit to register your four-person team. Never curled before? No worries! A training session is offered on Friday night before the championship event that will teach you everything you need to know to become a ruthless curling competitor. By Saturday you will be ready to hit the ice and compete against the other teams for the Curling Challenge Trophy.

If sliding rocks on the ice and wearing funny hats is not your thing, then you can always support one of the teams that have already signed up. Visit to see a list of teams and post a donation for your favorite one.

In the end, be sure to stop by Cairns Arena in South Burlington to cheer us on. The public is invited free of charge to watch the semi-finals and finals, beginning at 6pm on Saturday March 31st.
