The MCC Board would like to express our extreme gratitude for all of those who donated over the matching fund campaign this summer. In total, over $225,000 was raised! These donations allowed previous debt to be paid off, the downpayment to be made for the new ice equipment, and a contingency fund in place. The MCC Board would like to recognize all of those who have given a new life Club and made curling in Mankato possible again. Please follow the link this link, Thank You All!, for a list of our generous donors.
The Mankato Curling Club is one of the oldest curling clubs in the state, boasting more than 113 years of competitive action. For the first time since its founding in 1903, the club was unable to provide home ice for the 2014-2015 season.
Ice plant failures have crippled a club that normally serves approximately 200 adult members and a successful Junior Program with as many as a 100 youth participating. Along with leagues and spiels, the Mankato Curling Club is used by many groups, clubs, schools, organizations and individuals who rent the club to learn to curl, team building events, and school physical education programs.
