Our First Official Member

The first public announcement of curling coming to Traverse City was a brief Sports Notes piece in the Record Eagle. It was an announcement inviting those interested in curling or volunteering to our Open House. The next day, I received a call from an interested party explaining his lengthy association with curling. He told me of his experience throughout the US and Canada!  Wow...a ringer! 
 
“I’m so excited to learn how to play this game,” he stated. While confused, I asked what he meant. Seems he had participated in dozens of high-level curling “bonspiels” as the piper. He detailed the important history of this unique curling pageantry, leading the curlers “into battle” to officially open a tournament. Seeing a need for some credibility, eight-time North American Bagpipe Champion Stephen MacNeil was tapped as the Official Bagpiper of the TC Curling Club, and has been blessing us with his talents ever since.
