Bob Geolas, RTP Foundation president and CEO stated, "RTP is redeveloping and re-imagining.  That means adding new amenities and activities.  We welcome curling as a good fit to our community and an exciting new sport for the region."

"Having a dedicated curling facility in the Triangle will enable us to welcome new members and offer more opportunities for people to learn the sport, as well as provide leagues of varying levels of competition. "

With the land purchase complete, the club is now focused on securing funding for the building itself, along with the ice plant.
