30 Sep 2011 – An Auckland Curling Club team has won the Victoria Curling Association's 2011 Open Bonspiel title.
The 8-team tournament was held at Melbourne's Medibank Icehouse on 26-28 September in conjunction with the Australian Junior, Senior and Mixed Doubles Championships.
Al Langille, Kenny Thomson, Dean Fotti and Ian Ford started their tournament with a less than convincing draw in their first game against a local Victorian side. They clicked in the second match though, recording an 11-2 win over the other visiting side, this one from Queensland.
16 Aug 2011 – The championship playoff format for Auckland Curling Club’s 2011 season has been finalised.

16 Apr 2011 – Both new and returning curlers will benefit from Auckland Curling Club's Skills, Strategy and Etiquette Clinic this Sunday says club president Al Langille.
"Whether your curling experience is one week, one season or decades, you'll find it valuable," he says. "The cost is $10, but this will be credited to your membership fees."

11 Apr 2011 – Auckland Curling Club's season-opening Have A Go night last Sunday 10 April was a big success says club President Al Langille.

The club will follow up with a skills and training session on Sunday 17th, and after the Easter break the club league proper will start on Sunday 1st May.
5 Apr 2011 – Dates for Auckland Curling's Club and Secondary School league have been confirmed.

26 Oct 2010 – The Northern Lights team of Lorne DePape, Dean Fotti and Jo Norman won a hotly contested Auckland Open Bonspiel over Labour Weekend, heading off J3 (Josh Dallow, Jon Jaksic and Jarred Jaksic) in a final match that was much tighter that the score of 10-5 would suggest.
18 Oct 2010 – For the third year running, Auckland Curling Club's Premier League Final was a last-stone thriller. And for the third year running, the skip of the winning team was a Scotsman called Kenny.
Last year Kenny Thomson led A.R.S.E. to a dramatic extra-end win to take the Cameron Shield, and this year Altitude's Kenny Williamson clinched the title with his last stone to repeat his team's 2008 victory.
13 Sep 2010 – The Shy Teds – Kieran Ford, Brett Sargon, Raegan Lupi and Jed Tan – came out of their shells to win a short and sharp 2010 Auckland Under-21 Curling Championship at Paradice Avondale on Sunday 12 September. But the result was in doubt until the last stone.
