Ever wonder what curling is all about or ready for part II? Alumni, parents, and friends of Mount Union are invited to an evening on the ice to "Learn How to Curl" (adults only) with our very own Richard '72 and Cheryl (Brown '72) Drake! Cheryl was part of the United States Women's National Curling Association as they competed in the Scot Tour, a 24-day, 20-game event where United States female curlers at the club level compete against Scotland’s female curlers - a competition that only occurs once every ten years since its inception in the 1950’s.

You will learn the basic curling techniques from members of the Mayfield Curling Club. All participants are required to sign a release form upon arrival to event.

RSVP is limited to 50 guests and is required. Please RSVP to the Office of Alumni Engagement at (330) 823-2030 or

Read some hepful safety tips before the event! 

Please bring a pair of clean tennis, running or athletic shoes with rubber soles. These are to be carried in and inspected upon arrival (not the same shoe worn to the Curling Lodge). Dirt, salt, and other debris tracked in from outside will damage the ice and playing surface. The temperature in the playing area will be 40°F. Curling is an active sport and layering is encouraged so participants are able to adjust to being cold or warm. On-ice curling attire should be comfortable and practical for the sport, but needs to adhere to basic dress guidelines. Casual slacks, such as Dockers or khakis, or track-style pants with collared or banded shirts, turtlenecks, fleece, vests and jackets are preferred over jeans, sweatpants, tee shirts or more casual attire. Jeans and denim are allwed at the curling lodge, but not on the ice or generally the rest of Mayfield Sand Ridge Club property. Guests will receive basic information and instruction on how to curl and have the opportunity to get on the ice to curl.
