Fargo Moorhead Curling Club History

The Beginning
On September 13, 1938, a group of local business and professional men met to consider the possibility or organizing a curling club. Just over two months later on November 14, 1938, the Fargo Curling Club was formally organized - officers were elected, bylaws were adopted and authorization was given to purchase stones. Club members had previously arranged to rent space for one sheet of natural ice at the Fargo Arena, now the site of Island park Pool.

Records are few and memories dim but available information indicates the in 1940 the Club relocated to a site on Third Street North. This building accommodated two sheets of natural ice. Following the 1940-41 season, curling activity in the Fargo-Moorhead Area probably was suspended for several years. In late 1947, the Club apparently resumed activity at the Third Street site, just west of the present Fargo City Hall. The Club remained at this location until 1959 when the area was acquired by the City of Fargo Urban Renewal Agency.

In 1967 Club members entered into an agreement with the Fargo Park Board to build a four-sheet curling facility on land held by the Board. The building, located at the corner of 10th Street and 17th Avenue North. For the last few years the club has been at it's new location, address below, which is also located on Fargo Park property.

Most of the week the ice sheets are scheduled for club practice. Friday evenings FM Curling offers Learn to Curl sessions. The sessions start are from 7pm - 8:30pm and include an instructor and all need equipment for $10.00.
