We Welcome Missoula Curling Club out of Montana and Las Vegas Curling out of Nevada to the MoPac Family. This means that two more states can be added to the map for Curling!
Follow the MoPac Mixed Nationals at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle February 3-5, 2012. This year we have 7 teams playing down and only one team advances to the final 10 in Portage, WI on March 17-24, 2012.
(MoPac) Region and the Great Lakes (GLCA) Region were tied with seven
entries each. Looking back at the previous year’s entries, the MoPac Region
had only six team entries while the GLCA Region had nine. The extra berth
to the Nationals goes to the GLCA Region.
