 Curling survey
 
In an effort to help protect all curlers from the spread of COVID-19, Nashua Country Club Curling Committee has developed special procedures for curling this fall. Everything is subject to change in the future (for both relaxing and becoming  more  strict with the standards) A we know, with COVID what applies  today doesn’t necessarily apply  tomorrow.
In developing these procedures, we have considered information from a variety of sources, including USA Curling, GNCC as well as CDC guidelines. We will continue to monitor guidelines and update our procedures as appropriate. The safety of all of the curlers is of utmost importance.
To take the survey, please copy and paste or follow link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6NXRCL6

For generations, young and old alike have taken to the ice for friendly competition and enthusiastic community.  Nashua Country Club is a place where new curlers will feel welcome in an environment where everyone can learn and compete together.
