Podcast #30-17: Pittsburgh Curling Club- Karyn Drombosky & Dustin Devine



Since the founding of the Pittsburgh Curling Club in May 2002, the club, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, has introduced the Olympic sport of curling to over 4,000 people. During this time, they have seen the popularity of curling increase at a steady rate. In 2010 alone, over 1,000 people were able to experience the sport through the club’s series of league and learn-to-curl programs. They currently practice and play league matches at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center on Neville Island.  The Pittsburgh Curling Club is actively raising money to build a dedicated curling facility.  FitLabPGH spoke with Board Members Dustin Devine and Karyn Drombosky, who told us about the fun environment of the club and the addictive nature of the sport.  For more information about the Pittsburgh Curling Club, including the Learn to Curl program, go to http://www.pittsburghcurlingclub.com to donate to the fundraising campaign to build a dedicated curling facility, go to https://pccfundraising.dntly.com/campaign/dedicated-ice-campaign#/ or http://www.pittsburghcurlingclub.com/donate-make-it-happen/
