Part of the Pacific-Asia Curling zone, both Hong Kong and Qatar will be supported as they continue to work towards establishing the sport of curling in their respective countries.

2012 Bonspiel

19 Jul 2014 – A mild winter means prospects of a National Bonspiel this season are not looking too promising, despite the current cold spell.

NZCA Executive member Ken Gillespie had his tongue firmly planted in his cheek though when he spoke to the Otago Daily Times' Lynda van Kempen about the potential for curling on Oturehua's Idaburn Dam any time soon.

Cheryl Bernard16 Mar 2014 – Auckland, Dunedin and Maniototo Curling ran a series of well-attended clinics in early March, hosted by 2010 Canadian skip Cheryl Bernard and her husband Terry Meek. Cheryl and her team won Olympic silver in Vancouver four years ago, while Terry is a leading coach and 2009 World Men's gold medallist.

The various sessions for club and media, public and schools were a part of the World Curling Federation's Olympic Celebration Tour. Very enthusiastic current and potential curlers attended, the latter enjoying a wonderful introduction to our sport.

Auckland Curling's Facebook page has plenty of pictures from the three sessions there.

2013 MCI camp

The July Junior camp at Naseby's MCI rink was deemed both enjoyable and successful by both the coaches and athletes involved. Over 30 junior curlers attended, thanks to a late influx of applications from Dunedin.

Skills and ages ranged from a couple of very enthusiastic 10 year olds (whose understanding belied their years) to more seasoned Under-21 international players.
