We are a 2-sheet curling club located on route 32 in Petersham, Mass.
We have opportunities for everyone to get on the ice, from brand new curlers
to experienced, competitive ones. Drop in on any night while we curl and
we'll be glad to offer you a drink and explain how curling is played.

Golf & Curl Results
On October 1st, 14 teams gathered at the club to participate in our annual Golf & Curl Biathlon. After curling 6 ends and playing 9 holes of golf, Steve Chormanski's team found themseleves in the unenviable position of rooting
against another Petersham team as they played the last curling match on the ice. With their decisive win on the ice, the team of Doreen Grabauskas, Paul Picariello, Paul Anderson, and Don Mitchell won the day. Steve's team,
himself, Bob Barker, Rob Socha, and Pat Carbone ended the day in second place.
Team Graves scores an 8 Ender
Team Graves scored the second 8 Ender of the season at PCC on March 7th, 2016 in the first round of the Men's League Playoffs. It came exactly 2 months after Team Paul scored theirs. I'm sure there's statistics somewhere about
how rare an 8 ender is, and with the increase in the number of curling matches being played, I'm sure there are more of them. However for a 2 sheet club to see two within 2 months, that's got to be rare! Also of note, 3 out of
the 4 players on Team Graves joined PCC during the 2014 Olympics, they're only in their second full season of curling!

Team Paul scores an 8 Ender
One of the rarest spectacles in all of sport is scoring an 8 ender in curling. Team Paul scored one on January 7th, 2016 in our Signature League. Many life-long curlers have never seen an 8 ender live, let alone participate in one.
For those not versed in curling, think hitting a hole-in-one in golf while someone is actively guarding the hole, or bowling a 300 while someone else is throwing at the same pins. It's REALLY rare!
