BUSY SCHEDULE? COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN?

APPOINTMENT SHOPPING: In order to accommodate the many out of town friends who visit the Hogline Curlers Proshop we are happy to make special arrangements for pre or post opening hours shopping. With the hectic Holiday Season near this may help you better plan your traveling time. See the Contact Us section in order to help us serve you.

GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS! The Hogline Curlers Proshop, in conjunction with FRISBY TIRE is now (we think this is true) the only place that now recycles grippers. Anyone who needs a new gripper won’t be throwing the old one away anymore! We will be taking old grippers to get recycled once a week. Check out our broom head and gripper recycling box just outside the entrance to the Hogline Curlers Proshop.

HOGLINE FREE INFO SESSIONS FOR ROOKIES: The Hogline Curlers Proshop will gladly visit your facility if you have rookie curlers and give these folks an interesting talk about buying their first sets of curling equipment. We will bring a small array of equipment so they can feel what curling equipment is like. We won’t sell them anything but give them the tools to know what they should look for when they want to buy. See our CONTACT PAGE to get in touch with us to arrange a visit.
