Ice Technology info from Your Ice Technician ~ Ice Tech for Ice Tech

December 18, 2017 Craig Bancroft

Are you having trouble finding that ultimate gift for the curler on your list?  How about getting them the Klutch Curling app? This app will help curlers at all levels with information on short split time as well counting rotations of the rock.  It will also track the push/pull and the side to side drift of the rock during delivery.  Once the curler has this app on their phone (it works on both iPhones and Androids), the phone needs to be on their person to work out on the ice. It can be used for games and practice with the curler being able to review the info later on.  Follow the instructions of the app for proper use.

But wait!   There is more!  The app can be bought at 1/2 price through this Friday, December 22.  The password for 1/2 price purchase is kl-fri.

Klutch Curling has been installed into sheets E and F. 

So, from your Ice Crew at BGCC, have a happy and safe holiday break and see you all in 2018!  Good Curling and CHEERS!
