8 March 2010 – A record crowd filled the ice rink at Paradice Avondale for Auckland Curling’s public "Have A Go" sessions on Sunday evening. Exposure from TV coverage of the Vancouver Olympics was the key to the increased interest said Club President Peter Taylor.

"We had a lot of people say that they really got their first proper look at the game during the Winter Olympics coverage," said Mr Taylor. "And once they appreciated the skill and the subtleties of curling, people really wanted to try it out for themselves."

2 Nov 2009 – In a memorable finale to the 2009 season for Auckland Curling, it took an extra end at Paradice Avondale on Sunday night to find a winner for the Auckland Club Championship. The lead changed five times between A.R.S.E. (Kenny Thomson, Bill Howie, Daniel De Vries, Denise Thomson, Jeremy Fourie) and Global Cooling (Alex Bauer, Nick Lambert, Greg Prendergast, Shaun Alexander, Anne Huddleston).

13 Oct 2009 – The semi-final lineup was confirmed – nearly – after the 15th and last draw of round robin games in the Auckland Premier league at Paradice Avondale last Sunday.

As teams have come to expect, there were the usual number of games that didn't go quite according to the form book as three of the leading six sides lost to teams further down the leaderboard.

8 Sep 2009 – Only four of 15 rounds remain in the round robin stage of Auckland Curling’s Premier League competition, and the race for semi-final positions is well and truly hotting up.

Global Cooling (Alex Bauer, Nic Lambert, Greg Prendergast and Shaun Alexander) have a handy 4 point buffer over the field and appear to have booked themselves a spot in the semis.

3 Aug 2009 – The result was in doubt until the last stone, but Alex Bauer's Global Cooling side beat Granite 6-2 to remain at the top of the leaderboard halfway through Auckland Club league.

Just behind them on the table A.R.S.E. and Waikato Rockers had comfortable wins to remain two points behind, and Jacksons stole the last for a 7-6 triumph over Altitude to move into the top four for the first time this season.
