  3. Hello Cedar Rapids Curling!

    My name is Jordan Nilson and I am the Outreach Coordinator for Sioux Falls Curling in Sioux Falls, SD. We are looking to get a few teams together to try and get down to the CedarSpiel in the coming days. I was curious at how many spots you guys have open for the bonspiel? We have one full team and might have two more that can come. Thanks for the time!
