About Racine Curling Club (website)
The Racine Curling Club was formally organized on March 2, 1954, with Judge J. Allen Simpson as president. There were 28 charter members. Outdoor ice was used at places like Horlick Field, Root River, Hatter’s Sand Pit, and Armstrong Park. Snow, sun, sand, cold winds and heaves and cracks in the ice made it a game for only the most dedicated. The Grand Opening of the indoor Racine Curling Club was held on February 26, 1966, with Scottish Pipers in kilts leading the way. The Racine Curling Club today provides wintertime activities for over 160 adult and youth curlers from throughout South-East Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.
