Eight Ender Acknowledgements
Congratulations! An eight-ender is a great accomplishment for a team to achieve in the sport of curling. Like a hole-in-one in golf, or a perfect game in baseball, it may be an once-in-a-lifetime event! To remember this moment, the American Curling Foundation & Museum sends an eight-ender acknowledgement patch to any team that obtains this goal.
In order for you and your teammates to receive an eight-ender patch, there is a quick and easy procedure to follow. First, you need to print hard copies of two photos of the eight-ender, preferably with the members of the team. Second, send both photos (hard copy, not electronically) with an explanation on the date, place, event and team roster to USA Curling, 5525 Clem’s Way, Stevens Point, WI 54482. The team roster should be identified matching the picture, left to right, by name and position played on the team.
The USCA also need the mailing address of the individual, usually the skip, to whom they will send the congratulatons letter and patches. Pease include that individual’s phone number or email address in case they have any questions.
The USCA will then forward your photos and team information to the American Curling Foundation & Museum for registration. The USCA will send you eight-ender patches for each member of your team. They will also acknowledge the eight-ender in the U.S. Curling News.
